It was cranking but...

It was cranking but not starting. Sometimes it would then drive fine. Now it acts like it's getting no gas I press gas pedal and the truck barely moves doesn't even rev high. This is a 2006 Nissan xterra

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuel supply? And are all the spark plugs working?

I haven't checked fuel supply yet I was just seeing if I should test fuel pressure, relays, pumps, or what

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Xterra yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing yet. Just been reading up on problem

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I don't think so

I'm pretty sure it wss

ok sounds like you mat have a bad cam sensor causing the no start but you really need to get a code reader and plug into the car to get codes from the computer to make sure of this

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
