  1. Hill Start Assist Too Eager to Assist?

    General Discussion
    I'm in an automatic so TC. Maybe just a coincidence. Drove home from work and back since I posted yesterday and nothing out of the ordinary. HSA didn't engage once....maybe I'm just rolling through those stop signs....
  2. Hill Start Assist Too Eager to Assist?

    General Discussion
    Sorry I have to bump this thread. Hill Start Assist rarely comes on in my 2012 SL, despite having a few spots on my daily commute that I could see it kicking in and being useful. These 2 or 3 spots have only engaged HSA a few times in the past year, yet I've counted that many times it's engaged...
  3. Random Clicking Sound with Throttle

    General Discussion
    Just found this after Frunteer suggested looking further into VIAS valve: Help understanding what may be "2005 VIAS rattle" Here's the specific post: I've been doing lots of reading... Here are my specific characteristics of this sound it does not happen at idle, be it warm or cold and I do...
  4. Help with VIAS valve removal

    General Discussion
    TSB?
  5. Random Clicking Sound with Throttle

    General Discussion
    I'd say that's about where mine is. Shifting into 4th gear especially. Also, I've read the VIAS valve rattle is on '05 & '06 Frontiers, not after. Just what I read on another thread here.
  6. Random Clicking Sound with Throttle

    General Discussion
    If this pre-ignition "clicking" sound is fixed, would it just go away? Now I'm hearing more of a rattle at about the same shift points - like a loose heat shield. The reason I ask is, because as shift_RUSH suggested, I bumped up from 87 to 89 octane (probably should've gone higher, I know). I...
  7. Random Clicking Sound with Throttle

    General Discussion
    Thank you for the response. Is pinging the same as pre-ignition?
  8. Random Clicking Sound with Throttle

    General Discussion
    Yes. I've have this problem for over a year. It has never really gotten any better or worse. So far fuel treatment hasn't changed a thing.
  9. Random Clicking Sound with Throttle

    General Discussion
    So after speaking with my brother in law who's a mechanic and going on a road test with him, he was able to hear this clicking noise and suggested that it might be pre-ignition. I'm on my second tank with a 12oz bottle of Techron fuel system cleaner and the sound is still there. Next is a new...
  10. Loud screech when turning wheels and over bumps

    1st Gen Hangout
    Yes, I realized this was 1st gen after I posted. I looked for an answer before posting a new thread and this was the closest thread I could find related to my issue. It wasn't the warning tabs because I just had my brakes done at inspection last month. Turns out it was a little bit of debris or...

    Commodore 64. Original Test Drive. Spyhunter. I forgot about how many disks it took for installing something.
  12. bed storage and first steps

    General Discussion
    Just found a 3.5" floppy drive under my passenger seat...owned the truck 2 years in 2 weeks. I didn't put it there, so I guess I bought it when I bought the truck.
  13. Screeching/Grinding Noise up front when turning or reversing

    General Discussion
    I was lucky enough for my buddy at work to have a floor jack in his truck and we lifted the front passenger side and were able to get a better look. Little bit of poking and prodding and flaring the brake dust shield out a little, some debris fell out from between the shield and the caliper...
  14. Screeching/Grinding Noise up front when turning or reversing

    General Discussion
    My wheels aren't totally cranked when driving forward. It does get louder the further you turn the wheel. The awful screech is only in reverse and wheels can be completely straight or turned. I should've mentioned that I just got my brakes done at inspection. Thanks for the reply.
  15. Screeching/Grinding Noise up front when turning or reversing

    General Discussion
    I'm hoping that's all it is. I guess anything's possible, but for the sound to go away and come back, would that be debris? Thanks for the reply.
