I am considering the purchase of an older Nissan Frontier (2000 or 2002 model, due in part to financial situation, I can't afford brand new vehicle. I am looking at 4 door model with around 60000 to 85000 miles on them. I have never owned a Nissan, and do not know what to expect, what I mean is what are the normal things to "go out". Also what are some of the miles on "like models" from owners registered in these forums. I drive 30 miles each direction for work so alot of the miles will be highway miles. I just do not know what to expect from a reliability standpoint. I am looking at models with automatic transmissions, but I am scared of potential for problem with these type transmissions. ANY and all information would be of great assistance in making my decision of purchase or not.

I own a 2002 Frontier SE, 4X4, 4-door. I bought it used about a year ago, and I love it (my first truck), but:
The brake caliper, passenger front, seized up the other day. I called NAPA, and they had to order it, but only 1 day to deliver. The guy said quick ship time indicates a common problem (lots of people order calipers for this vehicle).
Also, I have had a slow coolant leak for a couple of months, and I should really get it tested. Could just be a hose, but could be the water pump.
Otherwise, no problems. Don't expect a lot of power (I don't have the supercharger), but better than a lot of other light trucks.

Hi, I have tried those bulbs before, honestly i wasnt too impressed, they werent as bright as i expected(for $20ea), and they didnt last too long either, i was extremely careful not to touch the glass and they only lasted about 3 months. I have bought some eurolights that were brighter, but the wattage was too high and they melted my wires.

Hi, my 2000 nissan frontier crewcab 4x4 v6 xe randomly died today. it wont start. I had it towed home, and pulled the diagnostic code p0325 knock sensor. My question is, Would a faulty knock sensor kill my truck? Or would something else be killing my truck and setting off the knock sensor? I dont really want to go replacing expensive sensors for no reason.
any help would be greatly appreciated!
#238 of 485 1997 Nissan 2WD Clutch Replacement
Jan 06, 2006 (12:46 pm)
I am about to replace the clutch and thrust bearing in my 1997 2WD Nissan XE pickup.
I do not want to remove thie engine to do this, so am thinking of removing the manual transmission and going in thru the underside of the vehicle.
Are there any tips or tricks that anyone can pass on or any problems that I may come across that can be avoided.
Appreciate any advice.
Also, I haven't worked on a car in nearly 20 years (used to race and service my own Renault Gordini including stripping the motor after every race) so was wondering if anyone knew roughly how many hours this job is estimated to take?
Thanks in advance

Did you get an answer to your question on how to remove the tail light assembly? I've got the same question.

We have an 04 frontier. today one of the wipers didn't work or move. Was about 11F here in new england this morning. called nissan service and one guy said this often happens in this kind of cold.....to first try tightening the bolt which may have come loose. He is talking about a bolt on the wiper arm I think. Anybody tell me exactly where this is located? Is it at the bottom of the arm? Thanx in advance irish
#242 of 485 Starter Inhibitor Relay
Jan 17, 2006 (11:00 am)
Does anyone know where the starter inhibitor relay is on a 1992 4x4 SE Nissan extended cab pickup? The dealer says it's on the inside of the passenger side fender well but it's not there on my 92! There are 3 other relays in this area but not the starter inhibitor.
