SOURCE: 05 nissan frontier engine noise just above 2000rpm

These engines have a problem with two of the timing chain tensioners, there are three of them. There is actually a service bulletin regarding this problem and updated parts. Unfortunately it is pretty difficult to get at these parts and it is not cheap to do the job. You can probably expect to pay up to $1200. for a dealership to do this job. They may try and help you a little considering the parts were faulty and have been updated but they are not obligated to legally. It is very important that you take care of this problem as the chains will eventually fail because of this problem and destroy the engine. Here is the number of the bulletin:

Reference: NTB07-042A
Date: April 17, 2009


1. Replace both secondary timing chains and both secondary timing chain tensioners with the ones from the Parts Information section of this bulletin.

2. Change the engine oil and filter.

Hope this helps,

If you want, google: "VQ timing chain"

SOURCE: My 2000 Nissan Frontier has sputtering problems

your tach is run by the engine computer, possible cause. also by the crankshaft position sensor, most likely cause, I would start there. some sensors will run within perimeters and be bad enough to cause a lot of problems

Where is the fuel pump located on a 2000 Nissan frontier desert runner v6

pump is in the fuel tank and is part of the sending unit assembly(replaceable seperately). i was told this by a nissan dealer when my nissan was getting the sending unit recall done about a month ago. i asked them if since the sending unit was going to be new if it included a new pump, they said no, its replaceable seperately but it goes in the sending unit assembly.

My oil pressure gauge goes up and down then stays in the LOW, also I have no power... my truck will only get up to 40MPH... is it possible the oil pump? ?

Not sure about the oil pressure problem. May be the gauge or sending unit. Does the engine start ticking or knocking when pressure goes low?If not you probably still have good pressure.
The loss of power may be a stopped up catalitic convertor. I've had one Frontier that this has happened to.

Fuel guage is going crazy

This is a very common problem on the 2005, 06 Frontiers. Nissan just issued a recall to replace the fuel sending unit so go to a dealership and have them put a new one in at no cost to you.

How can I fix my 2006 frontier oil gauge. My oil gaugae reflect different oil pressure levels and now it does not reflect different oil pressures.

This is caused by a worn oil pressure sending unit. Have that replaced and you should be set. In rare cases the gauge fails, but this is extremely rare.

2000 nissan frontier crew cab gas tank

there may be a recall on the sending unit, but the VIN # needs to be checked by the local Nissan dealer to see if the campaign applies to this truck. Tha campaign is for the fuel pump sending unit, not the gas tank, however in some cases, where the sending unit bolts brake, dealer will have to put a new gast tank into it. it also corrodes on top, where the sending unit seals the gas tank and it turns on the check engine light for a evap small leak, bacause the sending unit is not sealing properly, bacuse of all the rust build up on top of the tank. Good result.
