#287 of 485 FYI: suspension clunk noise
Jun 28, 2006 (8:18 am)
I have own Nissan pickups for more than 10 years but the 2002 Frontier 4Cyl, 5 spd manual kingcab w/48K I have found a funny clunk sound. Since I bought it had this clunk that will come once in a while in the suspension. I check and re-check. The dealer didn't have clue. Well, the sound got louder and everytime I turn there was that sound even just seating in the truck. I don't weight more than 180 lbs or more for those of you that think I'm a fat ... I found after several checks that the front bushing nut that holds the sway bar was gone. Nope I don't do Dukes of Hazard jumps nor do I frequent dirt roads with ditches. Most miles are highway miles and the max payload I did with this pick up was 550lbs. My old 1993 king cab have none of this. Be aware.
#288 of 485 97 Nissan pick up running rich
Jul 03, 2006 (12:56 pm)
I have a 97 Nissan pick up its running really rich. It doesn’t have this problem all the time only when it gets hot. It will run rich and miss then snap out of it and be fine then back to missing again. I have already changed the distributor, cap, rotor, plugs, plug wires, tps and the fuel pressure regulator. I pulled the codes and now it says the mass air sensor and the air intake temp sensor are bad. What else could it be????

Saw your post and I have a similar problem that started tonight on a '97 XE 4x4. I have the check engine light, battery light and brake light lit up on the dash. If I rev the engine above 2000 rpm, the brake light and battery light go out. Have you found the problem with yours? I just looked under the hood and saw nothing obvious and will troubleshoot more tomorrow. Any insight would be helpful.

Purchased 2 months ago. Unit has Fabtech lift, wheels and tires, grill guard, Rancho 9000 shocks, air bags, SUPPOSEDLY set up to work in Alberta oilfield. Since delivery, front tires destroyed due to improper alignment, or "settling in" ($500 EACH!), front fender liners have pulled out due to mud clinging as the liners are held in by plastic push pins, tranfer case seal failed due to mud intrusion into seal, box post at end gate separating from floor, King cab doors rattle on gravel, no adjustment available, cabin filter is ineffective.
Mileage is 10.5 to 12.8 miles/ US gal.
Dealer continues to be helpful so far, but downtime and week plus wait for service are souring ownership experience.
Previous truck was Duramax, had less problems than this in entire life of vehicle.
BEWARE BEFORE YOU BUY!!!!!

#293 of 485 2005 Frontier Ignition
Jul 22, 2006 (4:20 pm)
Not sure you have the ignition problem on your 2005 Frontier. I have Frontier for almost one year and put 12,500 miles on this truck. Last week, I filled 89 gas (well, I usually fill 87 gas), after that, the strange thing happened, the frontier truck need the second ignition to start, which the first ignition is failed. By the way, I live in Dallas, Tx; we had very high temperature wheather here. Could hot whether affect ignition?

I just got a 1986 4cyl 4x4 Nissan Truck with the same problem as you mentioned. It "stutter" when it starts from standing still mostly in first gear, and sometimes after shifting to 2nd gear and applying gas. And the truck could jerk significantly. At times when coasting on the 5th gear, the engine could occasionaly loss of power for a quarter second resulting in some unsmoothness or jerking a bit. Otherwise, it's a solid truck with 130,000 miles on it.
I would replace the throttle position sensor as you mentioned. What's more to do??? Thank you the post.

#296 of 485 Spark noise under pickup
Aug 06, 2006 (8:21 pm)
Hi. I have been hearing a spark-like noise coming from under my 92 Nissan truck. It's automatic, 4 cylindar, has a converter. I've had the brakes, muffler, left tie rod end, and the bushings on both sway bars in the front replaced, and a wheel alignment done 2 weeks ago. this sound is new since the alignment. It only happens when I step on the gas pedal. As soon as I release my foot from the pedal, the sounds disappears. The sound does not happen every time I step on the gas but 90% of the time. This spark like sound is becoming louder as time goes on, and it does not appear to be a body caused sound.
Can you help?
