OK, so maybe I could get insight on two things here...
1. My left shock's seal blew. Where can I get it fixed and if I do is it necessary/recommended to redo both shocks or would it be ok to just fix the one blown shock?


2. My "Fuel Level Censor" seems to be out. Does anyone know if this is covered by warranty? I had the code erased and I'll be waiting to see if it pops up again... It probably will as it gave me problems when I filled up the other day... It took a whole day for it to read full; it slowly came up to full.




Any insight on these two topics would be very much appreciated!

The fuel thingy has a Sevice Bulletin:

NTB09009 -Fuel Gauge Doesn't Read Full/Slow Respond
IF YOU CONFIRM • Fuel level gauge does not read full when tank is full. OR • Fuel level gauge is inaccurate or reads erratically. ACTION • For 2WD models, replace the fuel sender unit only. • For AWD models, replace the fuel sender unit and sub-sender unit. See this bulletin for further detail.

So I think it's a warranty fix.

Sweet..! Thanks!

Now I know nothing about taking springs apart... nor do I have leisure time for it... I'm in the middle of school right now and I seriously have no time. Who could do this for me? Shops? Anyone here that is experienced and wants to make a couple of bucks? I'm in SoCal 92316 Inland Empire Rialto/Fontana area. I need this done soon! I need to do the alignment on my truck; my tires are going to ****!

"NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 10V075000
Component: FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:STORAGE:AUXILLARY TANK
Manufacturer: NISSAN NORTH AMERICA, INC.

NISSAN IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2006 AND MODEL YEAR 2008 FRONTIER, XTERRA AND PATHFINDER VEHICLES. THE MOLDED FUEL TANK SHELLS CAN DEFORM, CAUSING THE FUEL SENDER FLOAT ARM TO CONTACT AN EMBOSSMENT MOLDED INTO THE TANK SHELL CAUSING THE INSTRUMENT PANEL FUEL GAUGE TO SHOW THAT THE VEHICLE HAS APPROXIMATELY ONE QUARTER TANK WHEN THE FUEL TANK IS EMPTY.

THIS COULD CAUSE THE VEHICLE TO RUN OUT OF GAS AND STALL IN TRAFFIC, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE FUEL LEVEL SENDING UNIT INSIDE THE FUEL TANK WITH A NEW ONE THAT HAS A MODIFIED FLOAT ARM. THIS SERVICE WILL BE PERFORMED FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE MARCH 22, 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT NISSAN AT 1-800-647-7261."

Greg will rebuild your shock, If you don't want to take it off send it wait for him to do it and send it back. Get a hold of BTF and see if he can do it why you wait.. you have to be with in 5 miles of his shop..

So finally got a hold of BTF and... He'll rebuild my shock for $225. I need input on this pricing... I know it's all labor since I don't have the know how of how to take it apart... So can you guys chime in on the pricing? Fair??? Not fair..??

This is only one shock by the way...

(sigh...) What to do..? What to do...?

I know the seal kits are like $15 so the rest is all labor... I don't want to mess anything up... so I'm not going to put hands on it at all... I just want to hand it over and get it fixed. What sounds reasonable to you Mustard?

removal, rebuild and install it's a couple hours work. Say 3 hours at $75 an hour not bad.. If you pull it off and put it back on you could save quit a bit of that.
drop it off in the AM and pick it up at night not have to worry about it for $225 is not bad..

plus you will get to see my truck.. Just paying $225 to see my truck is worth it..
LMAO!! Nice! I hope so... I'll find out soon enough lol.
