I have a 2000 nissan frontier SE, v6 4x4. About a month ago, I noticed a strange scratchy sound coming from my left front end. Well, me being a poor college kid i let it go. Now, whenever I hit a bump, I get a screeching sound coming from it, and I now also get the same sound coming when I turn the wheel to the left. Any idea on what this is and how i can fix it, or how much it'll cost. Let me know!
#261 of 485 1993 Nissan Pickup transmission knocking
Mar 27, 2006 (6:30 pm)
I have a 1993 Nissan Pickup 2.4L 5 speed. Whenever I am driving in either 1st, 2nd or 3rd gear, I hear a knocking sound coming from the transmission, but in 4th gear it disappears and the truck sounds excellent, and then in 5th gear, the knocking comes back, but just barely. Does anyone have any ideas on what this could be? also, i am aware that the clutch is about dead, which i plan on replacing in the near future... do you think the clutch failing could be playing a role in the knocking? could i be doing damage to the truck by driving it?

No change n mileage but the knock is gone. They admitted they had a technical bulletin after I gave them the pages I downloaded of the knock issue. On another note however, I have been driving between 75 and 80 mph and my mileage has increased to 17.3 mpg. I had heard that driving at higher speeds could increase mileage by several diesel truck owners. They were right, while my truck has a gas engine, the large 265 hp 6 cylinder it still got better mileage running 80mph. I have been considering adding acetone to my fuel to see if it will atomize the fuel to get better mileage. That is another theory being passed around. Add about 1.5 oz per 10 gallons of gas. The acetone will cause the gas to atomized better in the engine causing more fuel to burn. Auto makers put the fuel canister in the engine compartments to recycle the unburned fuel back through the fuel system. It doesn't seem very efficient to me to keep running dirty unburned fuel back through the system but it would seem to be a better solution to finely atomize the fuel to get more of it to burn when the cylinder fires.
Anyone else have an opinion on this?

#264 of 485 Bad shake in overdrive
May 01, 2006 (3:40 am)
I have a 2001 2.4l frontier king cab that shakes excessively in OD. It runs great as long as it's not in OD. When I push the OD button the tach drops about 800-1000 rpm...no problem, but then after about 2 seconds the tach drops another 200-300 rpm and the shaking starts. The check engine soon light stays on and blinks. I took it to Auto Zone and Advanced Auto Parts and had the codes read. Both times it said cyl #2 misfire. It was tuned up last week, new plugs, wires, cap & rotor. Please help! Thanks

I would have to believe that there is something wrong with #2 cylinder......take it back to wherever it was tuned up and have them re-do their job.
#266 of 485 Braking when the engine is off
May 02, 2006 (11:58 pm)
I have a 2002 Nissan Frontier manual transmission. I am the original owner. Yesterday the engine stalled as I was approaching a busy intersection. I stepped on the brake and the pedal went to the floor. I pumped it, still nothing. Luckily I wasnt hit when my truck coasted into the intersection. The brakes work fine when the car is running. Isnt the brake supposed to work without the engine running? I know in other cars I've had the brake would get incredibly stiff when the engine was off but still worked. Is this a problem in Nissan trucks?

Bought my truck a month ago. A few miles out of the showroom I noticed a slight delay and a jolt when I accelerate from a stop. I took the truck in to the dealer to have it checked. He gave me the 2 standard dealer answers "no problem found" and the ever popular "Derr there aint no error codes". Anyone else have the same type problem. Also I'm getting about 14.5 mpg Dealer says that normal.
