NISSAN FRONTIER Engine And Engine Cooling problems : 66.

Purchased A 05 frontier Cc 4×4 Truck From A Local Dealership. 2 Weeks I Had The Truck Roughly The 15 Of July, I Had Put A 30 To 40 Pound Stone In The Back Of My Truck Which Has The Rhino Bed Liner, Rock Dent In The Ribs Of The Box And Chipped The Rhino Bed Lining. Took It To The Dealership, Explained In Detail But Nothing Done As Of Yet. Yet Another Person Had The Same Problem I Was Told By The Service Department And Got A New Box. Problems With The Drivers Side Window Rattling, The Rear End Squeaking, And The Rear. I Took The Truck In Again, They Took It In Said They Fixed The Problems With The Window And The Rear End Squeaking. Took Truck Home And Was Doing The Same Thing. Took Back Again For Same Problem Plus Rear Differential And engine Brake. Said They Fixed Window (not True Again), Had To Replace The Bushings In The Rear(were Bad), And Needed A New Rear Differential engine Brake They Said They Had To Contact Someone Else About To Find Out Problem(not Fixed To Date) Took Truck In Again Had It 3 Days Said Was Fixed. I Took The Truck Home Rear Differential Was Doing Exact Same Thing But Now Rear Was Getting Hot. Called Monday Morning To Tell Them It Was Doing Exact Same Thing And The Rear Was Getting Hot And Service Department Manger Got Pissed Off Was Yelling. Now Having Trouble With The Steering In The Front , Not Right. Tried To Get Problem Worked Out With Dealership. Had To Finally Call nissan Complaint Center. Waited A Week For Response And Finally Had Call From Consumer Affairs With No Resolution. Told Me They Could Not Do Nothing Except Send To General Manager Plus File Complaint With Bbb Auto Which, Cost $200, No Guarantee. Dealership Service Department Also Did Not Give Me Copies Of Service Work Done And Refuses To Do So. Consumer Affairs Only Told Me They Can Get Them And It Will Help Their Case.

Was Traveling At 55mph In My 2005 nissan frontier When It Was As If The Transmission Was Put In Neutral. Had To Stop In The Highway, Nowhere To Pull Off. As Luck Would Have It Was Near My Destination And Managed To Get There Going About 10 To 15mph. It Was At Night So Luckily Not Much Traffic When It Occurred. Towed To Dealership Next Day And Was Told The Radiator Failed And Coolant Was Allowed To Enter Transmission Thus Also Causing Transmission Failure. Vehicle Had Exceeded The 80,000 Mile Warranty But Also Found Out That Warranty Had Been Extended From The Original 36,000 Mile Warranty Because Of Problems. Only The Radiator And Transmission Were Issued The 80,000 Extended Warranty, But My Vehicle Had 95,994 Miles Thus No Warranty Coverage, And Repair Cost Would Run $6,900.00. Contacted nissan Consumer Affairs But Was Denied Reimbursement. Although Dealership Worked With Me And Got The Price Down To $4,800.00 This Is A Major Expense To Me On A Vehicle That Should Have Been Taken Care Of By The nissan Corp., Due To The Large Number Of Complaints About This Exact Problem On Vehicles With More Than 80,000 Miles. Have Yet To Find Any Consumer That Has Been Compensated For This Problem. *tr

While Driving My frontier, The Transmission Starting Making Noise. It Started Slipping When I Was Taking Off, After Having Stopped For A Red Light. Then The Service Light And Indicator Lights Came On. I Could Tell That 2nd Gear Was Gone. The Truck Was Towed To A Certified nissan Dealer. They Informed Me That The Truck Was Not Covered Under Warranty And Gave Me A $5190 Estimate. This Does Not Include The $300 For The Rental I Have Had To Get For This First Week, Or The $101 For The Towing And Diagnostic Testing. I Have Since Discovered That The Coolant Was Leaked Into The Transmission And Has Caused It To Fail. I Have Also Learned That Hundreds, If Not Thousands, Have Registered Complaints That This Was Due To A Radiator Failure That Was Known By nissan. I Did Not Receive A Recall Notice Or Any Other Notification Concerning This Problem. I Called nissan Consumer Affairs And Received A Case Number. After 24 Hrs. They Called To Tell Me That They Had Extended The Warranties On The Radiators Up To 8 Yrs. And 80,000 Miles, But That They Would Not Be Able To Help Me With My Case. I Have Since Found Out Online That nissan Did Not Issue Recalls On This. My Truck Had Been Properly Serviced At My nissan Dealership, And Both The Radiator And Transmission Was Flushed At 30,000 And 60,000 Miles. The Power-steering Was Also Flushed At 60,000 Miles. I Believe My Dealership Should Have Made Me Aware Of The Problem When My Truck Was In For Servicing, And Then I Could Have Had The Radiator Taken Care Of Under The Warranty Period Before All The Transmission Damage Was Done. And nissan Should Have Issued A Safety Recall, As My Truck Stopped At 35 Mph; And Was Almost Rear Ended. I Would Have Normally Been On The Highway, Except Once The Noise Started, I Decided To Take An Alternate Route In Order To Get My Vehicle To A Safe Area. nissan Should Have To Pay For This Period! *tr

I Took My frontier Truck In For A 120000 Mile Schedule Maintenance Check And Oil Change. The Deal Told Me That The Radiator Coolant And Transmission Fluid Had Mixed Together Due To A Problem With The Radiator. I Was Told That They Would Flush The Radiator And Transmission And Try To Clean Out Most Of The Mixed Fluid. I Was Informed That I Need To Replace The Radiator And Transmission Might Have To Be Also Replaced. The Cost For The Replacement Would Be Around $8400. I Began To Do Some Research Into The Problem And Found Out That nissan Know That There Was A Problem With The Radiator And That The Fluid Could Leak Into The Transmission And Damage The Transmission. I Saw That nissan Would Extend The Warrant To Cover The Cost If You Had Less That 8 Years And 80000 Miles. This Warrant Would Now Help Me, Due Tot The Fact I Have Almost 119000 Miles On My Truck. I Think If nissan Knew About This Problem They Would Have A Recall On All frontiers, Pathfinders And Xterras From 2005-2010 And Pay For Them To Be Fixed . It Will Cost Me Over $6000 To Have A New Transmission Put Into My frontier Truck. My Truck Is A 2005 frontier Le. I Am Having The Radiator Assy Replaced ($991.84) Oil Cooler Assy Replaced ($498.49) Transmission And Cooling System Flushed ($421.52). The 120000 Mile Service A/t Will Cost Me $400. I Am Going To Search Around To See How Much A New Transmission For My Truck Would Cost. The Dealer Said The Cost For Replacing My Transmission Would Be $6155.14. They Would Sell Me The Transmission For Their Cost Which Would Save Me $925. I Think That nissan Should A Lease Help Pay For Half Or 2/3 Of The Cost For Me To Get My Truck Fixed. *tr

My 2005 nissan frontier Began Shifting Hard Noticeably. I Took It To A Trusted Mechanic To Evaluate The Cause And Learned That There Is Contamination In The Transmission Fluid. Coolant From The Radiator Has Leaked Into The Transmission Body, Resulting In Contamination And Corrosion. At This Time The Transmission Still Functions, But Will Not Continue To Do So For Long. This Issue Requires The Replacement Of Both The Radiator And The Transmission With An Estimated Cost Of $3,800. *tr

I Purchased My 2005 nissan frontier At Approx. 95k In February. The Test Drives Were Fine, The Car Sounded And Drove Perfectly Fine For A Few Months. It Recently Began To Start Shifting Roughly . The nissan Dealership I Purchased The Car From Did Something To Cover Up The Issue Which Was Obviously Why They Were Trying To Sell It Before 100k And I Got Burned On It. I Purchased The Truck From Marietta, Ga At Team nissan. I Didn’t Get It Checked Until Now, But Have Since Discovered The Numerous Complaints Of A Recall Related To Radiator Antifreeze Leaking Into The Transmission And Causing Failure Of Both. This Is A Safety Issue And It Really Does Baffle Me That A Whole Generation Of nissan Vehicles From 2005-2010 Have This Issue And That It Could Caused Some Accidents Due To High Speed Transmission Failure. I See This As Being A Safety Issue On The Same Scale As The Toyota Issues Of A Few Years Back. To Have This Be A Limited Warranty Recall Is Disgraceful. You Can Believe nissan Knows Exactly When These Incidents Are Likely To Occur So They Extended Their Coverage Up To That Point And They Fail Thereafter. Not To Mention That The Current Recall Does Not Seem To Include Issues It Causes To The Transmission. My Truck As You Can See Is Out Of The Extended Warranty For The Radiator And Was When I Purchased It. *tr

Suddenly My Truck Appeared To Have No Power; Could Not Accelerate Up To Traffic Speed Or Effectively Get Across An Intersection. It Was Scary And Dangerous As This Could Have Easily Caused An Accident. The “service engine Soon” Light Came On And I Promptly Took My 2005 nissan frontier Nismo V6 To My Local nissan Dealer For Service. I Had Just Had The Full 90k Mile Service With Radiator Flush And No Issues Where Reported To Me. So I Was Shocked When They Told Me That It Needed To Have Both The Radiator And Transmission Replaced Due To “fluids Mixing”. Antifreeze And Water From The Radiator Had Leaked Into The Transmission And Destroyed It. And I Was Further Shocked And Angry That It Would Cost Me $3k Even After nissan‘s “extended Warranty”. (i Don’t Have This Kind Of Money Lying Around To Dump Into My 7+ Year Old Truck, That I Had Bought New In ’05.) This Is A Catastrophic Defect In The Design – Known By The Manufacturer And Should Be Made Right By The Manufacturer. I’ve Found That There Are Hundreds Of Complaints About This Same Issue Across The Internet For Other 2005-2010 frontiers, Pathfinders And Xterras. nissan Needs To Do Their Consumers Right, Or Risk Loosing Loyalty. Up Until Now, I’ve Been Really Happy With My Truck, My Service Dealer And nissan, But Now I’ll Be Looking At Other Brands That Back Their Products And Consumers Better. *tr

Discovery Of An Apparently Known Issue Of Failed Radiator In This Vehicle That Contaminates The Coolant And Transmission Fluid Resulting In Failed Transmission Requiring Replacement Of It As Well As The Radiators. Surprised And Extremely Disappointed To Find This Issue Happening To My Vehicle Which I Purchased New From This Dealer And Loyally Had The Vehicle Serviced And Maintained At The Same Place Of Purchase. This Apparently Is A Known Issue And Yet My Vehicle Was Never Checked For This Problem At Any Of My Maintenance Intervals By The Service Department. The Initial Revealing Of The Problem Was Presented To Me At Full Price Of The Repair. After Expressing My Disappointment In The Findings And The Quality Of The Vehicle To The Service Department I Received A Call Back Stating That I Could Call The Customer Care And Have The Repair Performed With A Co-pay Of $3000 Of The $6400 Quoted Repair. Still Unhappy About What I Was Facing For A Vehicle That Had Not Yet Reached 100k Miles, I Was Left With No Option But To Call And Go With The Offer Of Partial Payment. This Is The Second Major Repair I Have Had To Have, First Being Replacement Of Timing Chain At Approximately 80k Miles At A Cost Of $1500. *tr

Transmission And Radiator/cooling System To Be Replaced Due To Contamination Of Transmission By Radiator Fluid. Routine Maintenance Performed Regularly. At 98,000 Miles Began To Experience Sporadic Vibration When Driving, Was Diagnosed With Above State Issue. I Use The Truck To Commute With My Children Everyday On The Interstate, While I Am Thankful That The Transmission Has Not Stopped Functioning, It Has Put Us At Greater Risk Than Usual With A Compromised Transmission. To Have Both Systems Replaced, I Have Been Given “an Opportunity” To Provide A “co-pay” Of $3000.00. I Paid nissan Once For A Functional And Reliable Transmission And Cooling System, I Resent Having To Pay An Additional $3000.00 For A Design Flaw Made By nissan. As A Consumer, $3000.00 Is The Type Of Money Used As A Down Payment For A New Car, Not What I Expect To Pay As “routine Maintenance” On A Vehicle With Less Than 100,000 Miles On It. My Payment Would Have Been Lower If Mileage Were Lower. It Is My Understanding That The Corrosion Happens Over Time, I’m Not Sure How Much Time It Takes, But I Feel Certain It Was Thousands Of Miles Ago. If I Had Been Made Aware Of The Issue Earlier, I Could Have Addressed It, Possibly With Less Damage To My Vehicle, Less Safety/risk To My Family, And Certainly At Less Cost Regarding The “copay” For Me As The Copay Is Based On Mileage On The Vehicle. The Heater Has Never Blown Warm Air When Idling, Which Is One Of The Few Early Signs Of This Issue From What I Understand. This Indicates To Me That Problem Has Existed For Most Of The Life Of The Truck. *tr

When I Was Driving Down The Road And At About 45 To 50 Mph, My Transmission Went Out Leaving The Truck Powerless And Not Being Able To Make It To A Safe Place To Pull Over! I Was Stranded In The Middle Of The Road, Which Was A Death Trap Not Only For Myself But For My Wife Or Daughter As Well. I Began Checking The Fluids And I Discovered The Transmission Fluid Was A Burnt Brown Strawberry Milk Shake Color. I Was Very Confused About The Color Of My Transmission Fluid So I Hopped On Google To Research Problems With frontiers Transmission. I Found List Of Complaints Of The Same Issue I Had Just Experienced. I Immediately Called The Dealership In Gainesville Ga. I Asked The Tech If The Truck Had Any Recalls. The Tech Stated That There Where 2 Recalls. I Asked Him If There Was Any Known Problems With The Radiator And Transmission, And Of Course No Was The Response. I Inquired About The Issues I Discovered. The Tech Then Replied “well nissan Did Extend There Warranty On That Problem”. He Told Me To Call nissan N. America. The nissan Representative Asked All The Questions The Dealership Did And Asked About The Miles. I Replied 101570. The Rep. Stated He Was Sorry I Was Out Of All Extended Warranty Plans. I Asked Him Just Because I Am 1500 Miles Over You Guys Cant Help Me? The Representative Replied That It Was Out Of Their Extended Warranty Window, So He Was Sorry They Can Not Assist Me. Then He Gave Me A Number To The Radiator And Transmission Hot Line. I Replied To Him By Stating, Wow This Is That Big Of A Problem That nissan Specifically Has A Hotline For The Situation? The Representative Just Hang Up. I Then Called The 1877-208-9275 Radiator And Coolant Assist Line. They Where Closed Because Of Martin Luther King Day. My Argument Is Why Has nissan Not Made A Recall About This Safety Issue? *tr

$6219.70 For A Remanufactured Transmission Because I’m ~2000 Miles Out Of Their Recently “extended” Warranty. Transmission And Radiator/cooling System Were Recommended To Be Replaced By nissan Today Because Of Contamination Of Transmission Fluid By A (known But Not Recalled) Defective Transmission Cooler Line. At Approximately 98,000k The Truck Began To Experience Vibration With Overdrive Engaged. It Felt Like Driving Over Rumble Strips Also, The Truck Had No Heat When Idling. I Took It To A Qualified Local Mechanic And Had The Radiator Flushed. That Corrected The Heat Issue. It Was Recommended To Take The Truck To A Transmission Shop To Look At The Issue. I Drive The Truck Daily To/from Work And Travel With My 3 Daughters To And From School. My Next Opportunity Was About 6 Weeks Later And I Took It To nissan. There Was A Recent Class Action Suit Regarding This Issue And “an Extension Was Offered Which Would Repair The Issue For $3000.00. This Covered Cars Up To 100k. Because nissan Did Not Diagnose This Issue Until I Was At 102,200 Miles, A Low Level Call Center Denied The Repair. Rather Than Drive The 10,000 Miles Per Year That Is Apparently Acceptable To nissan, I Drive Roughly 12,750. That Extra 35 Miles Per Day Makes It So That I Have To Pay An Additional $3219.70 For Something That I Should Be Paying Nothing For. The Fix For The Issue That Destroyed My Transmission Is Actually A Roughly $500 Repair Or Less Than $100 For A Diy’er. nissan Was Aware Of This Issue And Should Have Issued A Recall Before Their “customers” Transmissions Started Destroying Themselves. *tr

The Ecm Was Replaced By A Certified nissan Service Center. The Replacement Was Done 12/29/10. Now, It Is Happening Again. A Bit Of Research Shows That nissan Has Issued A Voluntary Recall For Camshaft Sensors That Cause A Very Similar Problem. However, Because My Vin Is Not Currently Under That Recall, I Can’t Have nissan Replace Them. This Is A Safety Issue. The Vehicle Looses Power Then Stalls While Traveling In Heavy Traffic At 50-60 Mph. That Can Cause A Major Accident And Affect Not Only Myself But Others.

At The Time Of The Transmission Failure I Had No Prior Signs Of A Problem. As I Was Merging On To The 4 Lane At A Speed Of About 45-50 Mph The Truck Began Shaking Violently. I Thought I Had Gotten Some Bad Fuel Because I Had Just Filled The Fuel. The Shaking Somewhat Smoothed Out At About 60 Mph, Though The Truck Was Lacking Normal Power, And Would Shudder When Pulling A Grade. I Drove The Truck About 10 Miles And Stopped To Get Some Fuel Treatment Because I Still Thought I Was Having Fuel Problems. At This Point The Truck Began To Act As If The Transmission Was In Neutral, Then The Transmission Would Grab And Jar The Truck Violently. At This Time I Was In Heavy Traffic And Nearly Hit. I Barely Got The Truck To My Mechanic. Further Inspection By My Mechanic Showed Antifreeze In The Transmission. I Had To Have The Transmission Totally Rebuilt And Replaced The Radiator, At A Cost Of About $4,000. About A Year Prior I Had The Transmission Flushed, Replaced Filter And Fluid As Preventative Maintenance. The Truck Has Been Maintained Properly Because I Planned To Keep The Truck For Long Term.

We Submitted It To The Warranty Company That I Had Purchased A Warranty From When I Bought The Truck Only To Find Out That Since The Transmission Failure Was Due To An Uncovered Part(oil Cooler) They Would Not Honor The Warranty. After Doing More Research On The Problem And Seeing As Many Claims Of This Issue How Has nissan Not Recalled The Transmission? It Is Obvious That This Normally Does Not Normally Happen Until After The Extended Warranty Ends.

The First Week Of November 2013 While Driving At Approximately 50-60 Mph, I Would Intermittently Experience Shuddering Vibrations Like The Ones You Feel When You Drive Through Those Highway Strips. I Did Not Pay Much Attention To Eat Thinking It Probably Was A Minor Problem With The Tires. 3rd Week Of November The Truck Started Slipping. I Went Online To Find Out What Causes The Slip And There It Was. Hundreds Of Not Just 2005 nissan frontier Owners But Also Xterra’s And Pathfinder Owners From 2005-2010 Having The Same Problem.internet Searches Came Out That At A Certain Point In The Life Of The Vehicle At Average About 90-100t Miles, Radiator Coolant Mixes With The Transmission Fluid Due A Crack Inside The Radiator, And The Transmission Becomes Contaminated And Eventually Fails. After Finding Out The Symptoms Of Possible Contamination I Examined My Truck’s Radiator And Transmission And Found Out That Indeed Transmission Oil And Coolant Had Mixed. I Immediately Replaced The Radiator And Flushed The Transmission Thinking That This Could Still Save The Transmission. A Week Ago While At A Stop, With The Truck On Drive And Right Foot On The Brake Pedal, I Heard A Big Bang Around The Transmission Area And Felt A Violent Shake And Then The Truck Jerked Forward And I Almost Hit The Car In Front Of Me. I Was Able To Bring The Car Home.i Cannot Use The Truck Now Out Of Fear That The Transmission Will Suddenly Fail While I’m Driving In The Freeway And Cause Or Be In An Accident. Many Owners Have Reported That When Their Transmissions Failed, Their Vehicles Suddenly Lost Power In The Middle Of The Highway And Almost Got Into An Accident. I Called nissan Customer Service And I Was Told That This Is A Known Problem With This Vehicle And They Have Extended The Radiator And Transmission Warranty To 100000 Miles With A $3000 Co-pay. *tr

I Went And Had It Checked Only To Find Out It Is Very Common With This Truck – Fluid In Transmission Caused From The Trans Fluid Running Through The Radiator And The Heat Exchange Leaks Water Into The Trans Fluid. This Is A Well Documented Problem I Learned. The Repair Is Not Covered By nissan And Is A 5000 Dollar Repair At nissan Dealership, A Total Transmission And Radiator Replacement Is Needed. *tr

I Currently Own A 2005 nissan frontier. 3 Months Ago, The Vehicle Had Been Stalling On Me Every Several Days, It Would Immediately Turn Back On. Last Month It Began Shutting Down On Me Every 2 Days, A Few Times On The Highway, Almost Getting Rear Ended A Couple Of Times. It Would Turn Back On, But After Several Tries And After 15-20 Min Wait. After Checking Recalls On My Vehicle I Noticed I Had Not Been Contacted About A Recall For The Replacement Of A Ecm Relay, Which Was Causing Vehicles To Shutdown. This Relay Was Replaced And Vehicle Had Been Running Fine For 3 Weeks, But My Vehicle Has Now Started To Sputter Every Few Days. It Has Shutdown On Me Twice In The Last Couple Of Weeks. *tr

I Found Out A Faulty engineered Control Valve Assembly Caused Radiator And Transmission Failure In My Vehicle. It Happened Less Then A Month Outside & 7000 Mi Over The Extended Warranty. Extension For The Warranty To 80,000 Was Put In Place For A Class Action Law Suit For This Item Back In 2010. In 2010 My Vehicle Did Not Even Have 50,000 So None Of This Applied To Me! Nor Did nissan Do The Right Thing And Recall My Truck Prior Knowing This Part Fails After 80000! All The People This Happens To After This Law Suit Went Down Are Out Of Luck Because Too Much Time Has Passed. So, I As A Consumer Who Takes Care Of Their Vehicle And Keeps Low Miles, Has To Pay Big Money To Fix This Problem! I Called nissan Headquarters To Do The Right Thing. They Said Because Of The Judgment Of The Class Action Law Suit, They Can Not Honor My Request To Do The Right Thing. I Have To Pay $2500 To Fix My Truck! I Asked If I Had To Sue Independently And Take To Twitter To Help My Cause? The Gal On The Other End Of The Phone (highest Person Up The Chain I Could Reach) Said; “yes Mam, I’m Sorry Mam, But I Guess That’s What You Have To Do. My Hands Are Tied By This Judgment I Can Do Nothing For You”! I Feel Completely Ripped Off And Deceived By nissan!!! Is There A Possibility You Can Come To My Aid And Direct Me How I May Get This Covered? This Has Become A Major Hardship! *tr
