That's a sharp-looking Xterra. Also a match to the truck. A bonus. What year of Xterra is it? Can you tell us anything else about it?

There's nothing else back there that can make that noise.

Throwout bearing or pilot bushing. If it was a belt, you would hear it up front and know.

No problem! Ask me how I knew to check that. I have done it a couple of times. It's hard to get the chain wrong because you get a really good look at it. But pushing that damn oil pump up there,...

I sure can't say. But it's cheap. Might be worth a shot.

I would just bypass the thing anyway. Brakes will still work. Sounds like it's in the same league as a clutch dampener. Those get bypassed...

If it is a steady squeal, and gets...

I recommend you try for either a 96 or a 97 only because those two model years, the final ones for the D-21 hardbody, came equipped with a plug that takes code readers. Easier than pulling the...
