Nissan Hardbody pickup, 1994-1997


Moisture in the distributor (possibly caused by a poorly designed distributor cap) may lead to various driveability concerns such as misfiring (TSB NTB00-086, Oct. 2000);

corrosion at the high mount stop lamp can be addressed by a new gasket(NTB99-068, Sept. 1999);

poor idling after when the engine is cold may be resolved by a new EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) valve (NTB97-100, Jan. 1998);

poor or no FM audio reception may be traced to condensation which has caused the tuner pack on the head unit to fail (NTB98-014, March 1998);

a new intake manifold and engine computer may address an engine misfire/rough running condition in cold weather caused by ice forming on the tip of a fuel injector during engine warm up (NTB96-114, Dec. 1996);

a transmission whine noise may be caused by a lack of lubrication to the main and counter drive gears (NTB97-018b, May 2000);

a rattle noise may be caused by excessive clearance between the piston pin and the piston, calling for a set of four new pistons, connecting rods and connecting rod bearings (NTB99-058, Sept. 1999);

water may leak through the rear sliding window, calling for a new window (NTB96-055, May 1996);

trucks with a manual transmission which surge or stumble may need a new engine computer (NTB98-026a, April 1999);

coolant apparently coming from the head gasket may be traced to the threaded blind plug (NTB95-087, Sept. 1994).

Isn't there a freeze plug on the rear of the head? Break out the flashlight and a mirror, the heater hoses are in that vicinity!
