I also have an 05 133,457mi currently up on blocks. Rebuilding the trans due to coolant contamination get it checked make sure you don't have the same issue. It was a huge problem with nissan

First off thanks! What kind of coolent contamination, oil getting into the coolent? I was told it was redone because of this exact issue.

There is a sticked thread in the general forums that explains further, but basically the transmission has a cooler line that runs through the radiator, and that part in the radiator can break down, causing radiator and trans fluid to mix = blown transmission.

You can either do the bypass mod (search the forum) or do what I did and replace the radiator with the updated part.

As far as the timing chain tensioners go, not every one has the issue. What to look out for is hearing a whineing noise that moves with the rpm. Check YouTube for several videos with the sound. If you hear it, you will most likely have to replace the chain. I had to do this recently on my truck.

Other than that, I would replace all driveline fluids, filters, spark plugs etc just to have everything at a fresh start.

I just got an ?06 with 55,000 miles and it has a calsonic radiator with a part number that has been known to fail. My coolant looked good still so I decided to do the bypass. It?s super simple, disconnected the output from the transmission and capped the radiator inlet. Disconnected the hose that went from the radiator to the external transmission cooler and connected it to the transmission output. Just eliminated the radiator part of the loop.
