Said they fixed window not true again , had to replace the bushings in the rear were bad , and needed a new rear differential engine brake they said they had to contact someone else about to find out problem not fixed to date took truck in again had it 3 days said was fixed. Rides like no other Truck I've driven Ford F-150, Dodge, Tacoma. It's funny to read the guys who don't understand anyone buying a mid-size in stead of a full-size truck. Also, all the petrol V6 and diesel variants now have side-impact and side-curtain airbags to pair with the ones in front. These fluids include transmission fluid, power steering fluid, brake fluid, and coolant. After some research I decided to go with a dual in dual out Flowmaster super 50 to tone it down and add a little back pressure back into the system.
Took a day to get. I dont hear any bearing related noises. Thanks Are you hearing any noise from the rear differential while you are driving? Being a fellow Minnesotan I'm sure you're familiar with driving in the winter. You can't do just the seal because it is behind the bearing. Mechanic found a failure of both rear axle seals causing fluid to cover rear axle, differential, rear brakes, and tires. If you are driving one, it's easy to understand why: it is roomy, dependable and offers the best value for money.
How unfortunate but on the C200 Rear end there is no other way to re-install a new seal without removal of the bearing assy. Normal function noted in 4 high and 3 high. Luckily, with the color matched cap and the leveling kit, it looked quite dashing, and the Jeep dealer gave me a bit more than I paid for it but I still lost a little money when you factor in the accessories. Other that this issue I am still very happy with this truck. Im a Nissan technician and ill be trading my frontier for a king cab pro-4x titan end of the year during clearance. Every other post it just dont work.
Had to finally call Nissan complaint center. I like the performance of the V6, and coming from a Land Rover Discovery that got about 10mpg, I thought the fuel mileage was fine. If you fail to change the engine oil at the recommended interval, you increase the risk of your engine failing. On the freeway in 6th 80 is a breeze and not begging for mercy. Taken to Nissan dealer for inspection.
I do keep with up with all the recommended maintenance including fluid changes in all the diffs, T-case, etc. Lots of folks recommending a full size truck but this is what I would have bought if they had imported it. It is more expensive to repair a busted engine than to follow the correct oil change interval. Yeah, well a couple of months ago I took it to my local garage. Does anybody have any idea how to replace this that does not involve major muscle movement? Nissan is aware of this problem and refuses to acknowledge the defective design and application.
The truck has tons of power and easy to drive. I commute 52 miles a day round trip so I have 12K in mileage and while there is a bit of a drift keeping your eyes on the road is recommended I never found it be that exhausting. Now having trouble with the steering in the front , not right. Rear differential fluid is leaking on the rear brakes. You have to cut the spacer off and then remove the bearing and seal. The bearing s were burnt and there was a fluid like sludge as a result of the heat. Average about 18mpg and have gotten a high of 24mpg.
If not you should be able to just replace the axle and the vent. Id say its over engineered, Nissans are built bullitproof. Why dont you just go to the parts dept. I did add nerf bars and window louvers. Ill miss my frontier, just to let u all know iv taken it to big bear snow, dumont dunes, el marriage dry lake bed, azusa cyns rock crawlen, its never let me down, only been pulled out of snow twice 10 inches of it. You make good points but people buy different trucks for different reasons. This mod will move the vent point to a higher position and prevent water from entering the diff.
I found out that Toyota part 90404-51026 works perfectly with the threads in the axle. I don't use my truck as a car. Not all of the modifications are technical or amateur radio in nature, but many are. You can use the nissan part if yota doesnt have em in stock, well nissan may not have them either. Consumer affairs only told me they can get them and it will help their case.
Buy it, you'll like it! Remove passenger side rear light. Dealership service department also did not give me copies of service work done and refuses to do so. Called another dealership had them pull up work done on truck and none was filed. I will definitely look to Nissan when buying another one. Half fully boxed witch flex under load an pressure. You'll hear a lot of people saying the design is old or outdated, but it still works very well.
