problem #1

Mar 022002

Xterra 4WD

  • miles
The car suddenly lost power on acceleration up to 60 mph upon passing another vehicle. After losing power, the car "service engine soon" light came on and stayed on. The engine ran rough with hesitation and could maintain a speed of only 30 mph. Car was towed to dealer, who diagnosed the problem as a mass airflow sensor malfunction. Dealer re-set E.C.U. and so far, problem has not repeated. Power window problem occurs on driver side, front window. The window goes down at normal speed but comes up very slowly with intermittent stops. First time problem reported to dealer, dealer lubed window track. Problem persisted, so went to another dealer, who ordered a new rubber window casing.
