This may have been asked before, but my search didn't really turn up what I wanted.

The Tacoma manual states that once a month the 4x4 should be engaged and driven 10 miles for lubrication, etc. I did not find anything in the Nissan manual. Does Nissan recommend something similar to what Toyota does?

I use my 4x4 system mostly during the winter when we have a little snow. I would say I go about 3-4 months between engaging the 4x4 system. I don't drive much. I mainly have the 4x4 for the few times I get caught in the summer during fishing trips on a dirt road and hard rains. Some of the roads can get pretty slick. The majority of the miles is highway. The 4x4 is for security for me. When I need it I need it.

Side note. Really like the Frontier. The more I drive it, the more I am impressed with the truck.

Systems must be different then. Andyslog, thanks for the explanation. This is my first Nissan in over 20 years. Just want to take of it.

N4Life: I think I will pass that advice on to my wife. I agree, time to go do more fishing. Besides I am retired. Everyday is a Saturday.

Though Andy has the right technical answer, Nissan4Life has the better logic on this one. :laugh:
I agree. Will definitely take it under advisement.

I know it was a pretty basic question. Since I tend to keep my truck 8-10 years, just want to do right by it.
