Natural occurrence unless you have a limited slip rear-end (or maybe some form of posi-traction if Nissan used it). One wheel will sit still if the other is spinning.

2004 Nissan Frontier. When I pull headlight out to check it is burning, but when I push it back in, it won't work on high or low. Can you tell me what the problem might be?


Sounds like it has a bad ground in the sockets, check to see if there is any green corrosion in the contacts. it's a commom in areas that use road salt in winter. They make replacements for them.

My SLIP light comes on every once in a while on my Nissan 2006 Titan. Seems like it comes on when it's wet outside. Any ideas?


Trucks are very light in the rear compared to cars. This is most likely a combination situation where your getting a little too much torque at the back wheels, the tire tread isn't brand new, and the slick road all combine to create the situation. You can reduce this somewhat by adding a couple of bags of sand to the back of the truck over the axle and by making sure you have good tread and properly inflated tires.

What maintenance/service is recommended for the 2005 Nissan Frontier at the 50,000 miles marker?


the only listing for 50,000 miles is to change oil and filter and rotate tires, this is assuming you have done the other services at 30,000 miles which has alot more done but this is all to be done at 50,000. hope this helps.

When i have my 4 wheel drive engaged making turns


If you are in 4WD, and not on a slippery surface, the tires may be having an effect called "scrubbing" where the tire on the outside of the turn is not rotating at the same rpms as the tire on the inside of the curve. I have noticed this on my jeep wrangler in 4wd.

Using 4wd on dry or non-slippery surfaces can cause this problem, and also will cause excessive tire wear.

Try the same manuever on a gravel road or a ice patch (it's been in 90s here in Texas, so good luck on that one) and see if it is improved.

Also, would probably expect a little more effort to steer when in 4wd because the universal joints or CV joints are not in perfect alignment during a turn.

1995 nissan maxima fishtails just bought it used is this common?


Fishtailing on a front wheel drive car is not really a common problem, no matter what make it is. The Maxima is generally a good handling car and 1995 was the first year that they used the VG30DE engine which had plenty of power. These cars performed like they had V-8's. With a front wheel drive car, when they accelerate, the drive line is pulling the car. Where ever the front goes the back follows, when you put your foot into it. NOW, if you have a tire problem where they are no longer able to hold the road, the rear will slide all over the place. If this is the case, replace the tires. 1st check the tire pressures! If your car fishtailed on a slippery road where it had just started to rain and oil commonly floats to the surface of the road in the first few minutes that it rains, you need to drive with caution. I drive an old 1981 Mercedes 300 TD wagon. When it is wet, prior to my replacing my tires, the car would slip and slide all over the place in the rain. I recently replaced my tires with a new 80,000 mile tire Cooper came out with and the ride and handling are awesome. The car sticks whether it is wet or dry and the road noise has been cut in half. I had never realized how bad my tires were until I replaced them. My tires still had a legal amount of tread but had start to crack from age. SO, to sum it up: the car in general, is an excellent car with a reasonably reliable record and few weak areas. You have made a good choice for a car.
