His truck only has 62,000 miles on it and the repair cost is more than the book value of the truck. Sometimes it doesn'nt work but we always give it a try. As of this writing, the problem has not been diagnosed but I am sure the problem will be in the valve body since something caused the transmission to go into neutral. Rusted or kinked cooler lines must be replaced. The 18 wheeler came within inches hitting my rear end. The vehicle was no longer being utilized. As it moves through the transmission, it can wreak havoc on internal components such as the valve body.
They told me the problem. This is obviously a manufacturing or design defect, nothing do with normal wear and tear. Nissian needs to put a recall on this problem. Dealer tried to blame my brakes. My current vehicle is a Nissan Frontier 2005 but I had the fuel sensor problems on my 2006 Nissan xterra as well. I came so often that I knew a few of them by name. I have to disconnect the battery to reset the code and it will drive okay for about 10 miles and the service engine light goes on.
Resembled a milk shake and he diagnosed the problem as a broken transmission line in the radiator. I have placed a call to your cooperate office but will go even further because they are one of you. The failure mileage was 94,600. Mechanic looked at truck and found that the radiator transmission cooler was leaking anti-freeze into my transmission. The failure was not remedied.
Then learned of the problem with coolant mixing with transmission fluid. If you don't change the radiator then loop the systems so the coolant and transmission fluid stay unable to combine even if there is a break. If I could go back knowing what I know right now, I would have never purchased that vehicle for her. Our units are pre-flashed and do not require dealer programming. There have been recalls on other vehicles for the same reason, yet not on the Nissan Frontier pickup. Nissan will not reimburse the repair.
I have two grandbabies that I have responsibility for and my vehicle was the only way I had to go. The failure mileage was 150,000. The noise went away when the accelerator pedal was not depressed. Complaint Number: 10422483 Incident Date: June 1, 2011 Date Added to File: August 29, 2011 Description of the Complaint: My nissan 2005 frontier has a transmission problem where the radiator is leaking coolant in the transmission. The vehicle was not repaired.
There are also many complaints on line against Nissan about the faulty build of the radiator and transmission, which causes the contamination. The vehicle was not repaired. As the heart of your transmission, it uses a vast series of sections which moves highly pressurized transmission fluid to different areas of itself. Took to dealership pf which they stated problem related to engine coolant getting mixed with transmission oil due to failed cooler inside radiator. Just had the oil change done and had just had the u joints done and had just checked the fluids myself.
The old torque converter came apart and after pulling the transmission, he saw a lot of metallic shavings on the screen on the valve body. So basically my transmission wasn't being further damaged, but was it too far gone? I just have one question Nissan!!!! So please, as a praventive measure, replace your radiator or install an external cooler and bypass the radiator. This state of the art machine is able to simulate actual road conditions, which allows the shift points and functionality to be fine-tuned prior to shipment. One thing leads to another that leads to another!!! Now my Frontier is in dunn's transmission shop in tyler, tx to be repaired. Driving at interstate speed 70mph , transmission failed causing sudden deceleration. How is Nissan getting away with this? Not to mention that my truck only has 95,000 miles and I thought was in good condition.
When this happens the vehicle goes into the limp mode. I bought my truck brand new from them and we had an 11 year relationship in doing business. Complaint Number: 10421674 Incident Date: June 15, 2011 Date Added to File: August 27, 2011 Description of the Complaint: 2005 nissan frontier. The noise went away when the accelerator pedal was not depressed. Took to dealership pf which they stated problem related to engine coolant getting mixed with transmission oil due to failed cooler inside radiator.
Compared to other people's costs on here it wasn't terrible but still was not fun. So it seems that what these consumers need is backing from a legitimate institution or Agency. I immediately released the cruise control by tapping the brake pedal. . I used to think that Nissan was a reputable company that produced reliable, affordable products. It shutters really badly around 60mph.
