Yes, everything replaced. No evidence at all of a leak.
I only have the problem while backing up under some load. i.e. light utility trailer, slight up hill/knoll. Most concern was with camper. I dropped camper where it was and did not even attempt to park it correctly, as I could smell the damn clutch burning.
Unless someone has had this problem and found the solution, I can't afford to experiment with it.
Also, I will be towing long distances (cross country) and just don't want to take risks of it breaking down on the road.
I believe I will most likely move up to a Titan as they were made for towing. I just wanted to leave information regarding this problem so other people are made aware that they "may" have problems.
I'm still a fan of Nissan and am not ready to jump ship just yet.
The manual does not tow well. Had the same problem on my stock clutch it would burn same thing backing any small trailer up a hill to park it, offroad it would smell, etc. my first one went out at about 30k give or take and the 2nd went out about 20k after that. When I took it apart there's a c clip that hold the throw out bearing it was missing a piece and when it was pulled out it crumbled. I think that it was part of the reason it wore out the second time prematurely because the clutch was always partially engaged. You can get the clip from the dealer. I went with the spec stage 2+ clutch because I was tired of ****ing around with the stock oem garbage. With 800-1000 miles of break in, afterwards anything that used to burn the stock clutch didn't happen anymore. The spec has not slipped once on me
