Ok guys, I just got my 2000 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab. She is very clean, and only has 92,000 miles. I do have a couple of questions though:

1) One or more of the belts is squealing. I have reciepts from the original owner that the front belt and tensioner were recently replaced, so hopefully a quick tighten of the tensioners and alt will remedy that. Found a couple of good diagrams on the Xterra forum, as the Haynes Manual leaves a lot to be desired. Any helpful hints?

2) The truck has a small leak at the oil sending unit. Cheap part, but what do you reccomend putting on the threads to keep the new one from leaking?

3) There is a squeak coming from the passenger rear of the truck bed. You can jump on the passenger side rear bumper and make the sound. Are there certain suspension bushings I should be looking at?

Thanks guys, I hope to be here for a long time coming.

:hi:

Is it the belt or one of the pulleys?

Loctite 545 is resistant up to 300 degrees that should be good to seal it
3) There is a squeak coming from the passenger rear of the truck bed. You can jump on the passenger side rear bumper and make the sound. Are there certain suspension bushings I should be looking at?
I had a similar squeak and solved it by spraying some penetrating oil on the leafs
Thanks guys, I hope to be here for a long time coming.

Hope that helps.

Just to clarify, I know the Alt is adjusted at the Alt, but the front belt is adjusted by the bolt head right above the tensioner on that black rail? I haven't found a good picture/drawing of the power steering tensioner, but I am sure I can figure it out. Hope to get out there tonight and do it if it isn't too cold or rainy.

I hope this does the trick, as they will be replaced anyways in about 8-10,000 miles when I do the timing belt.

Thanks guys!
