My first Nissan

Hello All. I just bought a 2005 Nissan Frontier King Cab 2.5 liter manual trans from a buddy of mine. I bought it for my daughter who will be turning 15 soon. My buddy was tired of throwing money at this thing. It's got 82,500 miles, 5 new tires, new battery. Was throwing a Crankshaft Positioning Sensor code when I bought it for $1700. Like I said, he was tired of dealing with it. Apparently the AC will blow cold at first and then after a click sound, will blow warm.

Thanks to this site I replaced the CPS this weekend and she drives like a dream. Blows cold for me so far, but won't know more on that until Summer comes. Also had a bad rattle but fixed that also. The heat shield was rattling on top of the exhaust and just used a metal hose clamp and tightened it down. Rattle gone.

There is a CD stuck in the CD player and it doesn't work but I told my daughter we would look into an AUX converter thingy so she can just hook her iphone up to the stereo. (or 3.5mm aux cable, etc.). Or maybe replace the whole deck. Any thoughts on this would be helpful.

Thanks for all of the help thus far, I hope she lasts me and my daughter a long time.

Hey, thanks for the advice and welcome Sabretooth. Well technically my daughter paid half of the $1700. She's been babysitting and saving. I told her whatever she saved for her first car I would match it. That way she has some ownership. Just so happened my buddy was looking to get rid of it. Win/win for both of us
