#51 of 485 Re: AC Problems [nobuggs]

I have a 2001 frontier that developed similar AC problems,but mine developed at 51k miles. Have the dealer or an AC repair shop first run a diagnostic to check for leaks and the switch, before recharging. The problem with mine is the low end hose leaked. I agree that this is too soon for the AC to develop this kind of problem and should have lasted longer, and with a Nissan, this should have had better reliability.
#52 of 485 2002 Frontier SC - Weak Audio Bass in FM
Dec 05, 2004 (9:07 am)
I love this truck, pretty much perfect for my needs. Only one thing that has been annoying me since I bought it and that is the stereo.
This truck has the Rockford system and sounds great with CD's. When I listen to the radio it's almost like the subwoofer is completely non-functional. Even cranking the bass only results in a little life from the sub, and then a LOT of rumble when I play a CD.
Anyone know of any tricks to get the sub working with FM radio?

Nissan sent a "specialist" to check it out and it seems that there is a problem with the speed sensors. My sensor was replaced with another style and that has taken care of the problem. My dealer worked with me on this however it took a long time to get it fixed. Stay with it- they know that there is a problem. Good Luck
#54 of 485 Transmission Shifting when Cold
Dec 16, 2004 (6:44 pm)
Have 2004 Frontier 4 cyl automatic, 5500 miles. When cold, i.e. outside overnight at 30 degrees, does not shift out of low gear until have driven serveral blocks at 35 to 30 mph, RPM 3000. Once shifted, no problems until cold again. Dealer test drove, contacted Nissan Technical Hot Line, said this is normal operation for this vehicle. Would like the opinion of other Frontier 4cyl auto owners if this is normal. I have never experienced this in 45 years of driving other automatics.
#55 of 485 Air Conditioning Trouble

I have a 2001 frontier, with 51,000 miles...recently had trouble with the AC...it was only blowing hot air...brought it to the dealer, they did a diagnostic on it...first, the low end hose was leaking and this was replaced...after a few days, same problem again...further checking showed the evaporative coil behind the dash was also leaking...isn't this very early in the vehicle's life for this to occur? I had to bear the cost of repair...complained to Nissan, have not heard back...i do not expect a reply from them. There goes Nissan Quality..and customer service.

#57 of 485 2005 Frontier Exhaust Issue
Jan 24, 2005 (6:54 am)
Mine: 2005 Frontier CC V-6, 6 sp manual with 1500 miles.
Noticed what I thought was gasoline pinging, knocking coming from the truck during 2nd, 3rd, and 4th shifts. Sounds like a rapping almost. Took to the dealer who said they were 99.9% sure wasn't the engine, but rather something coming from the exhaust. Wanted to wait another 1000 miles before pushing up the Nissan chain since no history has been built up. Anybody else having the same issues with their new 2005 Frontier? Last note, once in 5th gear you don't hear anything, and you don't hear anything revving the engine while sitting still. Thanks in advance.

Don't now if this helps, but thought I'd add it . . I have had a similar problem with a 1991 Nissan Pickup and a 2004 Xterra. On both, the problem was before the first oil change.
On the 1991 Pickup, the problem was a loose bolt on one of the skid plates.
On the 2004 Xterra, the rear bolts on the plate covering the underside of the engine compartment were loose.
On the '91, the dealer couldn't figure out what was wrong, so I lived with it for 3000 miles until my local garage figured it out. When it happened with the Xterra, loose bolts were the first thing I check.

I think I put my post about this on the wrong page. See #452 in the Nissan 2005+. I have what sounds like the same issue except I have an automatic. But it comes during acceleration and goes away at about 45-50 mph. Have not taken it in as I just started noticing it yesterday.

Absolutely. Your description is right on target with mine. It is a knocking/rattling of sorts that happens then goes away once I'm in 5th gear which is usually once I hit around 40+ MPH. Sounds like it's coming from the front passender side under the hood. I took to my dealer and he didn't want to start tearing it down yet. Thought it might be something in the exhaust as opposed to the engine itself. I"m frustrated because they want to wait until some other history builds up on the truck. For now driving my truck has become frustrating because I hear this sound and I keep thinking maybe I should have waited before purcashing, or worse maybe I should have bought the Tacoma. Anyway, let me know what you find out at your dealer.
