I filled up my gas tank and when I left, I noticed the "service engine soon" light and that my gas gage was in empty right after filling up. After a little while the service light would go off and the gas gage seemed to be working again. I did a little web research and found many other owners are seeing the same issue. I¿m willing to live with using my trip gage because the cost to fix is too much for a known issue. Love my Xterra just hate this issue. What I have found is that the federal mandate on ethanol mixed gas corrodes the censure is from one person thoughts. Also found that if you take it in, the code will say, p0463 which means you fuel sender unit sensor is out.

Gas gauge is behaving erratically. It will show full after filling up, then drop as expected from driving. When the gauge reaches approx. The half tank stickmark, it will freeze there for several miles, then drop to e and the empty warning light comes on, though I would estimate the tank to be about half full. I stop to fill up again but can only get 7 or so gallons in.

Failure Date: 07/11/2011

Upon filling my 2007 Nissan Xterra on July 11, 2011, I noticed that my service engine light was on and that my fuel gauge registered near zero. As I drove away the fuel gauge gradually rose to indicate a full tank. When I went to my Nissan dealer to check the error code he indicated that the problem was in the "fuel sending unit". Which would cost $300-$400 to repair since I had just exceeded the extended warranty mileage coverage limitations. In reading the descriptions of other owners of Nissan trucks and suvs it appears that this is a systemic problem and needs to be addressed through a factory recall.

I am also having issues with my fuel sensor unit in my 2007 Nissan Xterra at 38,500 miles. I filled at the gas station, getting ready to leave on vacation and then it went down to empty. The ses light came on, so decided to cancel my vacation! a couple of days later the needle went back to full. After filling gas 4 times, my ses light has gone off and it seems to be working, but do not let it go below half a tank to be sure. And, of course it is not part of the recall for the 2006 & 2008 models that use the same exact sensor unit. . . . How convenient for Nissan!.

Failure Date: 12/20/2009

I had 1/4 of a tank of gas and went to fill up. After filling up my gas tank, I turned on the car, at which point the needle did not register the full tank. After driving a couple miles, the check engine light came on. I went directly to the dealer and was told that it was a fuel sending unit/sensor and that it was no longer covered after 30k miles. After returning home and doing research, I went online to x. Nissanhelp. Com after performing a search, I came across many others who have experienced the same problem. Apparently it has something to do with the fuel sending unit. A similar problem was found on the 2000-2004 Xterra models and a recall was performed when the vehicle would stop after not getting any fuel, posing a great danger. It seems that something in the unit is faulty and will corrode over time. There is a general consensus that everyone who is having the problem is experiencing the same thing after having the vehicle for over 2 yrs and with around 39k-49k. If this problem existed in previous models, and it was recalled, the 2005-2007 Xterras, frontiers, and pathfinders should get this fixed at no charge to the customer!! why wait for accidents and possible deaths, especially since the problem lies in an integral part of the vehicle. Cost of repair ranges from $300-600.

I have a 2005 Nissan Xterra, and after filling my gas tank my fuel light came on. Shortly after that the service engine light came on as well. After researching a little it seems to be a problem with the fuel level sensor. There are numerous similar complaints from other Nissan customers. Apparently Nissan will not cover this and there has not been a recall.

After filling my tank, my gas gauge light was still on and the gauge still showed empty. Soon the "service engine soon" light came on. It will not reset. This is a costly repair and is obviously a defect, since there are so many other complaints regarding this same problem.

2007 Nissan Xterra with 57,000 miles. The service engine soon light came on after filling fuel tank. Checked the code at an auto part store. Code is p0463-faulty fuel level sensor. After doing some research found that this is a common fault on Nissan Xterras and frontiers. This failure could cause someone to run out of gas is they do not get the fuel level sensor replaced at a cost of $500 to $600.

It's unsafe for someone to be stranded in the middle of nowhere because they run out of gas because of a defective part. It's unsafe to run out of gas executing a maneuver at an intersection. Please help us.

This complaint is about my Nissan xtera 2005. I had 1/8 of a tank of gas and went to fill up.

Failure Date: 05/14/2004

I own a 2001 Nissan Xterra & it has 66,000 miles. However, since the day I bought the Xterra I have known I could not walk away while putting gas in the tank because the gas does not automatically shut-off. Rather, it will spill out. I just lived with this, figuring it was a "kink" I would have to live with. Until I was on the Nissan website & saw they had a recall on 2001 Xterras for this exact issue. Only one problem, the VIN for my Xterra is not included in the recall. While my Xterra was at the victory Nissan of richmond (Mar 2004), for a different issue, I let both tim, service tech, & gary, service manager, know my Xterra did the same thing the recall was describing. They said my Xterra was not a part of the recall, but would follow up with Nissan. I have not heard from victory Nissan. May 14, 2004, I notified Nissan hdqtrs about the issue & was told I would have to pay to have my Xterra diagnosed. My complaint is Nissan is aware there is an issue with the fuel tank valve on 2001 Xterras & I am telling them my 2001 Xterra does the same thing, but they said I would have to pay for them to diagnose my Xterra. Considering the huge safety issues with filling up a gas tank & it not automatically stopping, but rather spilling gas, I find it absurd Nissan would expect a customer to pay $40 to $80 to diagnose if the valve needed to be replaced. Especially on a model known to have an issue with its fuel tank valves. My other concern is if my 2001 Xterra is doing the same thing as in the recall & was not a part of the recall, how many other 2001 Xterras are out there just waiting to have a spark at the gas pump before action is taken. Also, regardless of whether or not my 2001 Xterra's issue is the fuel tank valve or not, this is a serious safety concern & I would think Nissan would want to identify if there were other problems with the gas tanks of Xterras. After all, do we need a repeat Ford explore tire issue before any action is taken!.
