Tip & How-To about 2007 Nissan Frontier SE Crew Cab

Second Generation Frontier (2005-2010) Tips

Right off the bat this is an all around good truck. But there are some things all owners should know when purchasing.

You will use your warranty...below is a list of common problems.

#1 The Whine - You will eventually hear this noise come from your 4 liter V6. It's the timing belt tensioner...try and get it worked on under warranty....and a pretty labor intensive job.

#2 The Rattle - You will hear a distinct rattle from your exhaust especially in the 1 to 3000 rpm range. It's your exhaust heat shields....they tend to corrode fast.

#3 The Thump - You may hear a thump coming from your rear differantial. In some cases it's the drive shaft although I have hear reports of folks having thier rear end replaced under warranty.

#4 The Nutty Fuel Guage - This is fixed under recall with a new fuel level sensor.

With that out of the way here's my advice for making your truck better.

Your brakes - You do have a solid four wheel disc brake system that it standard. But I did not like the quality of the rotors personally. I replaced mine with EBC drilled and slotted rotors and ceramic pads. I would say my stopping power increased 3 fold...especially under load.

Your Fuel Consumption - Off the shelf you will average 19mpg between city and hwy. I improved mine by making my engine breathe and spark better. A K&N intake and a set of E3 spark plugs gets me an average of 26 to 27 mpg now. An investment that has paid for itself.

Read your manual - Use the proper fluids and change at the right intervals. Also....the engine calls for nothing less than 91 octane fuel. The people who designed the engine ask for it...and thats for a reason. Spend the extra few bucks on a tank of gas and do it right. My first Nissan truck gave me 308,000 miles.

Hope this advice helps - Good luck with your Frontier!!!

2005 nissan pathfinder gearbox valve body

Don't ever purchase a Nissan newer than a 2004. They are complete junk. I have an 05 Pathfinder that had all the records. I purchased this around 72,000. My wife & I have driven it for about 15k miles and have had that vehicle in the shop multiple times. Right off the bat, the vehicle had a leak that cost me 1200. While on a road trip, an easy fix but the thermostat went bad, $200. Among other things, Currently it is sitting down at my local trasmission shop and needs the valve body replaced- $1600. research Nissan before they take advantage of you by selling an overpriced vehicle that they consider top of the line but start having trouble around 100k, right when the extended warrenty is up.

what causes a shortage i put a new battery and new started and new altintor in and its still diein while i drive wat else can causes a short and how do i fix it and anybody have any idle what can be causes the shortage???

I would check all of the main battery grounds first thing to make sure one is not connected good or rotted out.To do this you will need a multimeter set to OHMS one probe to the neg bat terminal and the red one to the engine block the reading should be vary close to 0 meaning vary little restance between the bat and the true ground the block ih the reading is high the connection or wire is bad The next check if its not a ground wire and we are asumeing that bat is good starter and altenator are connected corectly because the vehicle will start . Dis connect the neg cable from the bat. set the miltimeter to 20 volts DC. put the red probe on the battery and the black on the engine block must be a good ground point if you read voltage then there is a short in the system because the posivite side of the bat should have no path back to groundfrom the neg side of the bat At this point you need to start looking for things that don't work correctly that are electrical . it could be anything a sensor a motor a blower fan a light . Dose it drain the bat if it sits for a couple of days with out running These things are never easy to track down You can try pulling fuses one at a time and retesting the last test to see if the short goes away. But you have to do this one at a time it give you an idea what system is effected .Look around the vehicle see what isn't working correctly and disconnect the power wire from it but do the easyest thing first don't ripe out the dashboard if you can unplug a connector that is going to the suspected part and hopefuly with a little comon sence you can find the problem most of the time it dosen't cost a lot to fix but if you take it to an auto electriction it will cost you thousands to diagnoss and most of these guys just start replaceing parts until it works GOOD LUCK WITH IT

i am looking at buying a 2001 s600 mercedes and i don't know much about the vehicle and the v12. most of the ones i have looked at are right around 80,000 to 90,000 miles i am just curious one what to look for when going over the car and the life expectancy of the motor and parts. I obviously know it depends on the care of the vehicle but i am very nervous about purchasing a car with that many miles any help with this would be greatly appreciated thank you

if you are going to by a S 600 it's really good car as you know the life of car depend on how you treat it, if you maintain it the right way don't worry it's a really good one, when get old some electrical fault can occur it's normal for all the cars not only the S600, so it's really smooth and powerful car before you by it you must check is the previous owner has maintain it properly or not, that's the most important thing check the service history and repair history if the car have been maintain by Mercedes dealer it's be a good car, if you do right way if it's over half million mile not be a problem
