#432 of 485 Will Never Buy Another Nissan...
Nov 07, 2008 (5:57 pm)
Last week a rim on my 2006 Titan broke. The lug nuts and studs stayed in place, but the rim broke. Because the truck was out of warranty (mine had 46K instead of the 36K warranty number), Nissan said I had to pay. They said that rims break. "Sometimes it happens" said the dealer. The regional rep agreed. Any other Nisaan owners have the same issue? Or others have bad customer service issues with Nissan? We currently own 2 Nissans which we bought new that have the same rims..."That sometimes it happens" that the rims break... Good thing mine broke at 10-15 mph and not 60...otherwise I wouldn't be telling you this today.
I'd never buy another Nissan again...

#434 of 485 1997 Nissan PU Std Shift
Nov 08, 2008 (8:54 am)
I have a 1997 Nissan PU that has been a good truck. I recently started having a problem when I start to downshift to go up a hill. I get no power. It's like when I downshift to second I still stay in the higher gear and have no power to go up the hill.

I'm looking into buying a 2002 nissan frontier 3.3L SE. The dealership price is $8990. But it does have 112,965 miles, I thought it I would offer about $8400? Carfax was clean. Any input?
#436 of 485 AC Problem on '09 Frontier
Jun 14, 2009 (11:07 am)
For the second time my air conditioner has frozen up on my '09 Frontier SE Crew Cab with 18K miles. It takes place after hours of driving in hot and humid weather common here in the South. I took it to the dealer the first time it happened but they said they could not find anything wrong. They talked to Nissan who said they had not heard of any AC problems with the '09's. I was told to bring it in to the nearest dealer the next time it happened. It has been over a month between episodes and of course when it froze the second time it was Saturday night when everything was closed. Today, after it unfroze, the air conditioner worked fine. I did manage to take some pictures showing the frozen lines which I will take to the dealer tomorrow hoping it may help in the diagnosis. The tech said the last time it happened that the refrigerant level was fine, the pressure was fine and the AC was functioning properly. So what could it be? And has anyone else experienced this?

I just bought a 2003 Frontier XE King Cab with 233,000 miles on it. I keep getting a check engine light with a code that says plugged EGR passages. Any ideas as to how to fix this problem? I also have a bent pulley where the A/C belt goes, looks like someone tried to pry it off, dealership wants $212 for a new one, anyone know where I can get a used one cheap? Only paid $3,000 for truck, so I'm on a limited budget since I had to convince the wife to let me buy it in the first place. Thanks to all you Frontier owners!!!
#438 of 485 spark plugs and socket size
Jun 27, 2009 (4:08 pm)
Please inform me what the correct spark plug socket size would be for a 07 Frontier V-6? Also, I'm thinking that the plugs may be quite difficult to access? What would I need?

I think 16mm is the correct size. Torque to 18 FT/LB. You'll need to take the coil packs off to access the plugs -- torque them to 62 *INCH*/LB upon re-installation. Unfortunately two plugs on the passenger side require you to remove the intake manifold to access them. Somewhat of a pain, but nothing too crazy. Just be sure you don't drop anything down the intake plenum. These are 100,000 Mile plugs; your '07 shouldn't need new plugs this soon unless you're looking to swap them out for something else. Good luck in your work.

I have an '06 and live in the deep south and my AC is fine at 20,000 Miles. I've actually not heard of many AC problems with these trucks. I wish I could help. You might try a different dealer if one is not too far away.

Thanks, I have a 16mm socket. Actually, I won't be removing the plugs unless absolutely necassary. The change should not be due for another 7 -8 years at this rate.
