#464 of 770 Re: Aftermarket Exhaust [don42157]
Dec 02, 2007 (9:14 am)
My son in law has a Titan that he put a flowmaster 40 series on it runs great but a little loud in my book. I have a 2005 Frontier and just put A Gibson cat-back that fit perfectly in the original location, noise levels are great only 2to4 decibles louder in the cab but the performance is unbelievable! I even get 2mpg better if I keep my foot out of the throttle. This is a good time to shop also because the manufacturers are needing to clear out this years products. I recommend the Gibson exhaust that is the quietest of all brand in the cab, there are several places to start your search, and go wit one that guarentees their price to be the lowest for a year and has free shipping. Just punch in perfomance exhaust for Nissan Titan and enjoy the fact that you are in control of who wins your bucks. Enjoy your awsome truck

my 91 nissan king cab 3.0L V6 drops #6 cylinder at 3000rmp. sometimes right off idle as well. using a spark plug tester and revving up the motor you can see the spark go from strong to virtually disapear. i have changed the cap and rotor as well as the plugs and wires and have used multiple sparks plugs in #6 cylinder. i have put the original plug and wire on a different cylinder and the problem didnt travel with them, it remains on #6 only. i have 40lbs of fuel line pressure and 150lbs of compression. im sure the problem started after changing the fuel sending unit. also i have changed the fuel filter twice since the problem started. i am baffled as to why this problem is only in #6 and not any other cylinder. if you can help me solve this i will consider you the god of nissans!!!! please help!

Can anyone tell me where the voltage regulator is located on my 87 P/U,it's not charging under load,but is at idle,it's a new Alt.Any other info will be appreciated

the voltage rerulator is built in to these altenaors.
not cherging under load then tighten the belt.
or a new belt is needed.
also check bearing and pulley tightness on alt...
#468 of 770 intermittent idle(cold weather?)
Dec 19, 2007 (12:59 pm)
I have a 97Nissan pickup= idling slightly rough after startup. It hasn't been a constant & basically goes away after running around town, but it's creeping up more now.
Scenario: Start up truck & let engine warm a few minutes to 10min.. then run across the street to coffe shop(maybe let it warm a bit listening to radio). Come back out-(always starts up fine) start driving out of the parking lot and it starts running rough, and shudders at the stoplight like it's going to die(just for a few minutes)-I keep it reved to keep it going, after a minute down the street it goes away. I live in Wash. state,..not thaT cold yet- 40's/30's
Did oil change & breather filter inside air cleaner housing(cleaner is good), couldn't find my pvc valve to change(internal?) Replaced battery to Diehard.
Is this a cold start valve, or EGR, or sensor type problem? it feels air more related,....but could it possibly be electrical?....
Alternator of sensor?

Ok I'm not a nissan mechanic but I have a pretty good idea what's bad. I have a 91' single cab 4X4 with 5 speed man. tranny,or should I say 1 speed. Down shifted from 3rd to 2nd pretty hard, now all I have is 4th gear! no grinding or creepy sounds,just 4th. What Have I Done???? The tranny isn't more than 1 1/2 yrs old, not a lot of abusive miles. Forkin' out 1,500 cash isn't what I'm lookin' to do.
#470 of 770 91' 5 speed tranny(1 Speed)
Dec 30, 2007 (7:34 am)
I am new to this posting stuff so I'm gonna try it again...
I turned my 5 speed into a 1 speed real quick. Downshifted from 3rd to 2nd pretty quick, now all I have is 4th. Previous owner replaced complete tranny little over 1 year ago,not a lot of hard miles on it. love the truck,has a little over268k on it,looks and performs well,but the thought of spending 1,500+ really isn't what I want to do,would rather put that $$ into my 02' VTX 1800c. Good chance I will be selling the truck if it is in need of a new tranny. Any expierence or suggestions about the tranny? Doesn't make any wierd noises or anything just have 4th gear.
#471 of 770 Fuel question
Dec 30, 2007 (10:04 pm)
I was planning on the purchase of a new Frontier KC Nismo/LE V6. It is not listed on the fuel door, but the owners manual recommends the use of premium unleaded gas with an octane rating of at least 91 AKI number (Research octane number 91). What fuel are you guys using?
#472 of 770 Re: Fuel question [tuoraf]
Jan 02, 2008 (1:29 pm)
The manual suggests use of 91 Octane "for improved vehicle performance" only, but it is definitely not necessary. I've burned only 87 Octane in my '06 4.0L V-6 and aside from one occasion when I bought some crummy gas, my Frontier SE Crew runs fine with gobs of power, even with heavy loads in back. I do no towing. You'll be fine with 87 I suspect. Good luck with your purchase.
