  1. 3rd Generation General Discussion
    I am by no means an expert and have researched many 4x4 forums prior to my 22 P4X purchase. It's been many years since owning a "truck" again, but I have driven many brand pickup trucks over the years. That being said, I seem to notice a trend, especially with the "transmission recall" that...

    So my transmission in my 05 Frontier took a crap. It wouldn't engage any gear. Drive/reverse/lower gears acted like neutral. I believe the trans pump went out. Anyway I got a used trans out of a pathfinder (08 I think? Not 100%). The valve body in the pathfinder trans is slightly different. My...
  3. 1st Gen Hangout
    Hey Y’all, I’m new to the forum. Just purchased a 2003 Nissan Frontier XE King Cab with 109,000 miles on it. I was wondering since I don’t know the history of the vehicle and I get the feeling the transmission fluid hasn’t been changed, do y’all recommend I change it? I know the manual asks...

    Had a thought cross my mind and at risk of beating the proverbial horse: I seem to recall the latest Frontier transmission is shared with that of a Mercedes, 9G-Tronic / Jatco JR913E. Is anyone aware if Mercedes is experiencing a similar transmission recall? Based on this Wikipedia list of...

    Hey guys new to the forum and frontiers i just bought a 2005 frontier le 2wd with the 4.0. I am well aware of the smod issue and was leaning heavily towards a tacoma because of all the horror stories. Went to look at it and it was super clean, no radiator/Trans issues. It has 118,xxx miles and...
  7. 1st Gen Frontier Builds
    Have anyone encountered this issue? I noticed my truck would shift from 3rd to 4th way too quickly. Sometimes going uphill I’d have issues climbing up, going up. Gradually it would speed up. I’ve rebuilt the transmission with a full kit/new torque converter/solenoids and double checked...

    Hi guys, I'm new to the frontier club, recently purchased a 2011 2.5L Frontier. I am getting ready to do a transmission service and I want to do more than just a drain and fill as it has 108K miles and I'm not sure if it's ever been serviced. I purchased a transmission kit with a gasket for the...
  9. 1st Gen Hangout
    Need some advice on transmission maintenance. My 02 has the 3.3 V6 and is 4WD. I was under the impression that since it has 90 000 miles and is 20 years old that I should pull the transmission pan, install a new filter and gasket, and then refill with new fluid. Not doing a flush. I was told...
  10. 1st Gen Hangout
    My transmission (automatic) has been slipping for about 2 months now so I have been looking for a replacement online (mostly eBay). I haven't had any luck yet finding a transmission specifically from a SC model and I was wondering which other year models I could swap the transmission for and...

    I had my transmission oil pan damaged this weekend while driving on a gravel road and hit a rock hidden in a pond. Had to be towed to the dealership. :( I did not know but the oil pan on this new transmission is plastic! Very easy to break. It cost me $1200 to replace it at the dealership...

    I was driving on the highway, and decided to put the truck in NEUTRAL while coasting off the exit. I decided to rev the engine, and nothing happened. RPMs did not go up, and no noise came from the engine… eventually, when I stopped at the light, the engine responded to the gas pedal… It seems...

    I have a 22 Frontier King Cab S 4x4 that I absolutely love but have noticed something weird with the transmission. At highway speeds when it is 15F or warmer it will hold gear and RPM perfectly. No hunting or rpm floating. When it’s colder though I have noticed that the RPMs are all over the...

    I can't seem to find any info on a 2006 Frontier having a transmission pump. Maybe I'm just over looking it. Surely there is one right? My transmission has a whining noise a friend said sounds like the pump. I'm getting a P0717 code for the input turbine speed sensor. My next step is to drop the...

    Hi all, Just got my 2012 crew cab sv 4.0 today, overall in great shape (I was very picky about finding a "rust-free" truck, tough to come by in New England), and seemed mechanically sound enough on the test drive. Anyhoo, I was getting on the highway for the first time and as I went briefly...

    Hi guys, my truck has about 95,000 miles on it. Yesterday I drove it to Home Depot, no issues, but then I hop in to go home and notice the engine turned over a bit before starting. I knew that was unusual. Then I start driving and the shifts are bucking the truck hard. Automatic transmission...
  17. Wanted
    I'm doing a cross country + towing trip and would like to be able to have real-time eyes on trans temp and a few other things. Let me know what you got. Located in the Bay Area, CA. Willing to pay shipping. Appreciate ya!
  18. General Discussion
    Purely out of curiosity. Let's say the day comes my truck finally quits, rather it be a blown engine or a destroyed tranny. Since they retained the Nissan frontier frame would it be possible down the road to drop in a 2021+ tranny and engine? I understand that certain things would have to be...

    Is it possible to swap out a tranny on a 16 sv to make it a manual
  20. Towing
    As a new member and novice mechanic, is there not a lot of similarities (if not exact replacements) between the Frontier and the Titan transmissions? I seem to find more DIY diagnostics on this site as compared to Titan forums for my issues. I have a 2006 Titan with the RE5R05a transmission with...
