    [UPDATE] - I was able to pull the engine code and it was P1774 which means "that there is either an electrical or mechanical problem with the operation of the low coast brake solenoid valve." https://www.transmissionrepaircostguide.com/p1774/ On my way to work this morning my '12 Frontier...

    I plan on doing my first transmission fluid change (drain and fill over the course of multiple oil changes instead of a full flush). I got my truck used and I assume a transmission fluid change (or any other premium maintenance recommendation) has not been conducted. I bought Amsoil synthetic...

    So, with the 2020 Frontier and the new 9 speed transmission it has, does anyone have any idea if you can put that transmission in an older truck. Seems to me, that 9 speed transmission would offer better fuel mileage and not so many gear changes while driving in varying conditions. Thoughts...

    I have a 2013 Frontier SV V6 2WD. I noticed a leak where the transmission meets the driveshaft. I think it’s an Extention Housing Oil Seal leak? Has anyone replaced it yourself? Looking for advice.

    I have a 2017 sv 2wd... It has a leak... Dealer did a multi pt inspection and tells me it's supposedly a leak in the seal of the transfer case rear output shaft... But since it's not 4x4 I'm assuming it's the differential for the transmission and not a transfer case? They want about $200 to...

    This weekend I was finally able to cross some things off the maintenance list. I replaced the gear oil in the transfer case & rear diff, cleaned and oiled my K&N air filter, and gave the throttle body a much needed cleaning. Next will be the transmission fluid and then move on to rebuilding the...

    Hi All, I'm about to hit 30K miles and am going to do an ATF drain and fill this weekend. I've seen that Valvoline Max Life Synthetic meets the Matic-S standards. My question is, if I'm just doing a drain and fill can I add the valvoline ATF to the existing Nissan fluid? Or is it that much...

    So I have been experiencing some weird what I assume is are problems with my 2011 Frontier Pro 4X when I drive in the snow. When I'm driving in the snow between 40 MPH and 60 MPH by transmission will clunk and or feel like I'm losing power for a second between shifts and cause the truck to jerk...

    So my brother and I both have Frontiers, but when I drive his it feels so much more powerful and responsive. For starters, mine is a 2006 KC 4x4 with around 129k miles, steel engine skid, rock sliders, a steel shell, and around 100 lbs of tools. My brothers Frontier is a 2018 CC 4x2 with around...

    Hey everyone, So last week my 2008 Frontier LE v6 crew cab (5 speed auto transmission) started acting funky. At first it was just an intermittent slight jerk as the truck was downshifting - when I came to a stop or slowed speed in traffic. It felt less smooth on those automatic downshifts. In...
