#55 of 485 Air Conditioning Trouble
Dec 17, 2004 (8:37 am)
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 (5:54 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.

^^ If you check the Tacoma forums available on the net, you'll find that the Toyota is having it's share of "freshman jitters" with loose cab mounts, mysterious noises at highway speeds and other small issues. I think so far, many of these problems are minor and will be fixed with a TSB. Regarding the Frontier though, I suppose some minor issues are to be expected with a first year production vehicle just like the Tacoma.
Makes me a little nervous though, I was planning on purchasing my Crew Cab 4x2 Nismo Automatic this weekend. Hmm, maybe I should hold off for a little while.

As an update, it was particularly cold here the two days I had this issue with mine. Today I let the truck warm up briefly and I didn't have the knock/rattle at all. Sounds weird, but I can say I have heard it 2 days out of the two weeks I have driven it - now has about 1000 miles. I can also say that is the only real problem I have noted so far - and there are lots of things to like!!

As a prospective '05 Frontier buyer I'd like any more impressions you may have about the new Nissan. Looked the Titan over with a fine-tooth comb before deciding that I wanted to down-size from my current full-size domestic. New Frontier feels great but I have reservations about anyones "first year" model. Sounds like you did your research ??
