#192 of 485 Too much play and wandering 2001 Frontier..HELP!
Oct 30, 2005 (7:05 pm)
Hello. I own a 2001 Frontier 2wd King Cab XE 4 cyl pick-up. About 2 1/2 months ago I began to have steering problems with my Nissan. Traveling on a straight and level road, the truck will either pull to the left or pull to the right, needing constant correction. I have noticed the the allowable play in the steering wheel seems excessive. I have taken it to three Nissan dealers. I get the usual, "the crown / drainage of the road....the wind...your tires...alignment...etc." I have had the truck aligned three times (thrid time at a dealer and every bolt that could be tightened, was tightened), I have had the wheel bearings repacked, and I had brand new set of tires put on to stop the "its your tire excuse" (the previous set of tires was fine as far as even wear and tread life according to two mechanic shops). I am going to have the steering linkage between the steering box to the wheels replaced this week (the set-up on this year truck has sealed bushing links, so you have to buy the whole assembly). I think it is a bad steering box assembly from deduction. Has anyone had there box go bad. Is it hard to change out (doesn't look to bad from the shop manual). I don't understand, I don't having any power steering leaks and the truck only has 72,000 miles. Please help....any input would be great. I went on two test drives, showed the technicians what happens, etc. It just dosen't seem possible to anyone that the box could be bad, I think the techs have never seen one go bad this early and are in denial. It has gotten to the point where I don't feel safe driveing the thing.

I'm going to be replacing the Knock Sensor in my 2000 Nissan Frontier XE.
It's located under the Intake manifold.
Anyone done this repair? Anyone know what gaskets will be needed?

This truck has been a major headach. The navigation system broke twice, the manual interior light switch broke, and the plugs for the phone chargers broke. The dealership just replaced my brakes when I went in to get my cd player fixed, it was only then that I was told about the recall on the brakes. I just paid $200 to another auto shop to fix the brakes the week before. I have a $150.00 CD collection (Time Life) stuck in the player which had to be sent to California and they can't guarantee they won't be scratched or destroyed. I love the way it looks but I don't have time for all the repairs.
#197 of 485 Faded Bedliners
Nov 04, 2005 (4:29 pm)
I recently purchased an 04 Titan with 21K miles. The spray on bedliner seems to be really faded. Is there any way to repair or restore the color? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I love the truck so far. Thanks

#199 of 485 Have the Break Problems been solved?
Nov 06, 2005 (2:43 pm)
I just purchased a new 05 Tital KC. I understand that there have been break problem since the initial rool-out. I also understand that if the truck in build after 5/05 then the fix has been incorporated.
Can anyone verify this?
How can I tell if mine if build after 5/05?

I am having the same problem with my 05 nissan frontier crew cab 4x4. I have had my truck in over 12 times for different problems 6 of which were for the knocking when shifting. They tried or attempted to fix problem by replacing the rear differential but it didn't work. The service manager gave me the same BS story it was normal they all do it. If you have any contacts to nissaqn that would help me in sticking it right up there you know what please e-mail. All help would be appreciated.
