I had to join this forum to express my thanks, for the advice on the TCA to fix my ac. After finding no leaks in my system, I came across this forum and found the solution. I just bought a 2001 Frontier XE 2wd recently, and the previous owner said he thought it just needed freon added. It turned out to be the TCA, which I learned about on this site. It also had a service engine soon light on, which he said autozone told him was for a catalytic converter. I was able to get him to knock 400 bucks off the price because of that. I took it to my local az, and they said the code was for an o2 sensor. He advised me to check my fuel filter and check for vacum and exhaust leaks because that could give off a false o2 code. The fuel filter looked original (the truck only has 99000 mi) and sure enough as soon as I replaced it, the truck started running smoother and within 100 - 150 miles, the cel went off. So kudos to him for the advice, and not taking the opportunity to sell me parts I didnt need. Well I just wanted to say hi and I am looking forward to visiting this site on a regular basis to learn even more about my Frontier. Thanks everyone and keep posting.

The 01 Frontier rules! 99,000 miles is nothing for that truck.

I did a lot of research and the first gen Frontiers looked to be some of the most dependable and trouble free trucks out there. My wife wasnt that thrilled when I told her I was buying a 16 year old truck. I was disgusted when I saw all the problems with the dodge, gm and fords, especially the newer ones. I came across this one and it fit the bill. It was previously from Florida and only spent 4 years and 30k up here in the rust belt, so its really clean by NY standards. Being a 2wd it wont see a lot of snow. I just got rid of my rusted 2000 cherokee (best vehicle I ever drove in the snow), and plan on getting a fwd van for winter. Then I can keep this one clean and drive it around 9 months out of the year. So far I like it. Today I replaced the PCV and had to google it to find it. WTF is it doing down there? Well it gave me a chance to check that area out and do a little cleaning.
