#35 of 485 Frontier oil change trouble
Sep 22, 2004 (1:13 pm)
I have a 2004 frontier 4 cly with 5500 miles on it. Tow weeks ago I had the oil changed. The shop that did the work put in about a quart too much oil. I drove the truck about 225 miles before noticing. THis is the second time the shop put too much oil in. The first time they put about 1/2 quart too much and said it would'nt hurt anything, so I drove it till change time came again. This morning I had them drain the excess oil till it was on the full mark.
The shop manager said they won't take responsibility if something should go wrong with the engine. It runs fine, but I worry there will be problems ahead, and Nissan will find some way not to cover it. Can any harm have been done to it? I checked and found no leaks or oil anywhere. What would you do if something like this happened to you.
#36 of 485 Plastic Moulding on 02 XE.
Sep 27, 2004 (9:51 am)
I just recently purchased a 02 4WD XE which has the standard Dark Gray/Black plastic wheel mouldings and front bumper. Really like the body color mouldings on the SC models better. Has anybody ever heard of or tried to have these moulding pieces painted the same as the body color? Didn't know if the plastic was the same material on the XE as on the SC and if this could be painted.

hmm odd, I know mine on my trooper will stay in a lower gear after going over a hill but that's usually due to a slight uphill at first I thought it was spazzig but it was a result of the uphil i hit ever so slightly.
#39 of 485 Frontier Rear Stabilizer
Oct 07, 2004 (8:51 am)
I have a 2000 Frontier that I bought in 2002 with 25K miles on the clock. Not too long after I bought it it developed a suspension clunk. I took it to the dealer and they had it for two days replacing something (I don't remember what exactly) and it was fine for about a year....then it developed the clunk again. I complained to the dealer but they said the repair lasted a year and I was SOL. I complained to Nissan with no satisfaction.
Anyways, I eventually took the truck to a Monroe to have them look at it. The 20 year old fellow told me that the stabilizer bar on the rear needed to be put back together, he did the work and didn't charge me a dime. I gave the kid $20 to buy himself a couple of lunches. A few months later the clunk returned. I'm going to try to tighten it up myself. My question: Anyone else seen this problem?

I own a 2000 Desert Runner with 70k miles, bought brand new in 1999. No clunking, just rattling wheel center caps. Good luck.

I have the 2000 XE Frontier. Surprised to find that you have a rear stabilizer - I don't. A suspension problem I found on the front was a missing spacer between the nut and rubber bushing. The nut worked its way into the bushing, allowing a lot of slop in the handling. It hadn't gotten to a point where it was clunking on me. But I have already replaced the shocks all around, so that may have helped. The OEM shocks are crap.

I have the same model truck as yourself and I used to work in the automotive field and the answer to your question is yes. You can paint them the same color as the body. The moldings are the same no matter what model frontier you have. They come from the manufacturer unpainted. If you are considering painting your moldings make sure you pick a reputable body shop. There is nothing worse than having the paint not match your truck. Let me know how it comes out and if you can, how much it costs.
