I pretty much agree with the post on top of this one, but i should add that I just hit 206,000 miles today on my 02 frontier, and I still have the original clutch. With that said, at approx 130,000 miles, I had a similar problem with my clutch, If I was in first gear traveling at approx 10-15 mph and depressed my clutch for more than a few seconds,for example to coast in bumper to bumper traffic, it sounded like the demons from hell were wrestling each other under my truck. If I popped it in neutral, it stopped. It was also about this time I noticed that I could no longer "short shift" (which is my term to shift without the clutch,I dont know if that is the official term or not)from first to second. Even now, I cant shift from first to second if my RPMs are even remotely over 2000.When I asked my mechanic about the problem, he said it could be the clutch, or the synchronization (gear?)-Its been a good year and a half ago, working on memory here-and he told me to drive it until the clutch started slipping. The last gear I now downshift to is 3rd gear, and so far, so good.

has anyone ever heard of knocking from the front left suspension, only when turning to the right. And if you get under the truck and look it is obvious where the suspension has been hitting and causing a mark on the back of the front left tire.
#217 of 485 sylvania silver star bulbs

I have a 2003 SVE KingCab. I am planning to replace the factory bulb with sylvania silver star bulbs. Anyone tried these bulbs here? I head good things about them, but would like to know if someone has any problem with them. Also, I was wondering if anyone can tell me how to replace bulbs (headlight) on this truck?

Let me know how you situation unfolds. I have a smell coming from my front wheel wells. It smells hot or as if something is burning. It is very subtle though. I just had a 2" body lift put on my truck and I'm worried that the shop that did it may have messed something up. The dealership had my truck for an entire day and could not find anything.
#220 of 485 Any Ideas??????
Dec 14, 2005 (4:40 pm)
I have a 2001 king cab 4x4 SE with the v6. I have owned the truck for a year. I love it. This past month I decided to have a 2" body lift put on it at a local shop. It looks great, here's the problem. Recently I have noticed a "hot" or "burning smell" coming from both front wheel wells, but primarily the driver side. There is no noise, there is no smoke and the truck drives great like always. This smell goes away very quickly also, it only happens after you have been driving, not while idle. It appears to be more strong when the distance traveled increases. My local Nissan dealer had my truck for an entire day, and notice the smell, but absolutely could not find anything wrong!!! Does anyone have any suggestions. The dealer said they could re-pack the front wheel bearings, but said they thought that would be a waste of my money. The truck is out of warranty, so it would have been at no cost to them to do any work. The shop that did the lift had to adjust my linkage to my transfer case, could they had done something to make the 4-wheel drive not disengage properly? Thanks for any suggestions!
#221 of 485 IAC valve Problem

97 pickup the dealer computer says it's this valve that keeps the check engine light on. Has any replaced theirs? it looks like it is hard to get too. Someone told me you can disassemble and sometimes clean and replace. Anyone have any suggestions. .How does this valve work ?

I have a similiar problem, I took it in twice with no resolution. The 3rd time I had someone look at it he told me he thought it was a loose wire on the carb, We didn't do anything, the light went away byitself. Every once in a while when I drive the truck hard it will come back on, but so far no problems.

thanks Caplan, did you replace the valve ? my dealer said the part was over a 100.00 bucks plus labor. Once the light came on it hasn't gone off, but i will check the wire.
