Can anyone help me out here. I have a 2000 Frontier Crew Cab 3.3L V6 with overheating issues. It idles fine, but after about 15 minutes of driving it starts to overheat, with coolant venting. I have already replaced the thermostat, the water pump and the hoses. I do not see any other leaks now except what comes out the vent. I have checked the oil and there is no evidence of water or foaming. I am lost on this and afraid it could be the head gasket.

If your distributor timming is off it can cause this problem. The faster you go the hotter your engine gets. Sometimes it is a matter of being advanced only one degree.

Recently my truck has been completely losing power. The last time it happend I was backing out of a parking space and it just shut off on me. I opened my hood and messed with the negative connection and then the powered turned back on, but now I went to try and start my truck and it shut off again and now it wont start even when I mess with the wire. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I have a 2000 Nissan Desert Runner. Changed the timing belt and water pump 150,000 but wouldn't recommend you wait that long. Time belt is a lot cheaper than a new engine.

Had my Frontier stall out on me last week. Luckily I wasn't going that fast and managed to pull off the road. It started up alright but was running a little rough. Managed to make it back to work but when I tried to start it when leaving work, it would start but keep on stalling out. I tried this three times. Wicked gas smelI , so gave up and had it towed to the dealer. Did it act up with them? NOOOOOOOOO. I have brought it back home. I'll see if it happens again. Drove it some today. Still a little gas smell now and then but running smooth. Any ideas as to what is going on???????

You didn't mention the year of your Frontier, but some '05+ Frontiers and Titans have suffered from intermittently defective IPDM's (Intelligent Power Distribution Modules). The failure isn't common, but the symtoms match yours. These devices convert digital instructions to control relays and they handle many basic functions. Cost is about $300 Ea and they're easy to replace. The IPDM sits close to the firewall in the engine bay on the passenger side and stands vertically. The many IPDM relays that you see on the part are not replaceable.
Intermittent problems make us all crazy. Good luck with finding a fix.

Im having the same issue.. what was it?
#27 of 28 4cyl. comparison...
Jan 24, 2012 (12:50 pm)
Can anyone who has experience with both engines, tell me which performs better: The 4cyl. Tacoma or the 4cyl. Frontier?
When I say, "performs", I mean which has better acceleration, which does better carrying a full load and how is the real world gas mileage?
Thanks to all!
