Nissan frontier starter binds the flywheel

Nissan frontier 2000 Frontier 3.3L 4x4 Just rebuilt engine and when I install and torque the starter it binds the flywheel. I installed the rear plate and also the lower rear cover as per the manual. In had the flywheel turned and installed a new clutch disk, but used my old pressure plate. I torqued everything to specs. If I just torque the lower starter bolt the motor turns by hand, but when I torque the upper bolt, it locks up the enginge. Im stumped!

You need to put shims in between the starter and the engine block.You should be able to pick them up at your local auto parts store.

    I wonder why the OEM service manual doesnt say anything about this? are the shims specific to the motor and started or generic?

    Try this start bolts in almost all the way in and then wedge something in between the starter and the engine then torque the bolts and see if it still binds.

SOURCE: 87 samurai bolt torque specs for engine

The haynes book is not recommended since there are numerous mistakes and they still will not update. One of the biggest is the firing order.

The factory service manual is the only way to go.

Head bolts - 46 - 50.5 lbs (there is an order sequence for the bolts)

Intake & exhuast manifolds- 13.5 - 20 lbs

Flywheel - 41.5 - 47 lbs

Clutch cover - 13.5 - 20 lbs

SOURCE: I need the bolt torque specs

go to the local auto parts store and purchase a Chiltons Repair Manual on your car, it has all the torque specs listed for this. Or you could try the library and see if there is one there for your car and just look it up for free..... just write it all down.

SOURCE: Bolt torque specs for flywheel, pressure plate,

1.Flywheel - 61 to 69 Foot Pounds
2.Pressure Plate - 25 to 33 Foot Pounds
3.Bell Housing - No specs found. I would say 25 to 35 foot pounds should be sufficient.

Bolts clean on ->flywheel to crank, ->pressure plate to flywheel, and ->bell housing to back of engine, I would use TWO drops of Loctite Red threadlocker, on ALL of these bolts.

Hope you have an alignment tool for your clutch disk when you install it. Auto parts stores sell the plastic one's cheap! Saves a LOT of headaches!

Tighten the pressure plate EVENLY! Snug the bolts down until they just TOUCH, then go in a criss-cross pattern when tightening. Do the tightening in incremental stages! You turn one bolt one thread, you go across to the opposite side, and turn that bolt one thread. Keep criss-crossing so the pressure plate goes down EVENLY. (YES, it's a pain in the keister!)

If NOT, you'll have a warped pressure plate, and it will be junk!
Thanks for letting me say that, I feel better.

Replace pilot shaft bushing 2000 3.3 liter nissan frontier


You'll need a special tool to get the bushing out and another to drive the new one back in. You;ll need to separate the transmission from the engine. It isn't necessary to remove the clutch from the flywheel to get at the bushing. The tool will remove the bushing with a wrench. The tool that us used to install the bushing is driven in with a hammer Mount the new bushing to the tool and tap it in the flywheel with the hammer. Since you didn't take the clutch off it'll be easy to mount the transmission back onto the engine.

Where can i find the starter on a nissan frontier 2004


The starter on the Nissan Frontier is a motor that is connected to the battery that runs the ignition process of the truck. When you turn the key to start the truck, this will send an electrical signal to the starter motor that turns the flywheel. The flywheel in turns moves the crankshaft. When the starter goes bad or teeth on the starter gear get chipped this will prevent the truck from starting. Locating the starter is the first step in replacing it.
  • Open the hood to access the engine compartment. Locate the battery to the passenger side of the engine compartment.
  • Identify the positive terminal of the battery. This will be indicated by the (+) symbol above the terminal.
  • Trace the red cable that is attached to the positive terminal. The cable will run from the battery down to the side of the motor.
  • Locate the end of the red cable as it is attached to the starter. The starter will be attached to a bracket by the motor with the back of the starter connected to the bell housing of the transmission.
  • Remove the front passenger side tire for easier access to the starter. This will also give you plenty of room to remove the starter.
I hope this helps.

Good luck.
