1999 Nissan Frontier Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 1999 Nissan Frontier

The distributor shaft bearing can become rusty, and seize causing the engine to stall or not start. The failed distributor will commonly require replacement.

The EGR valve can become clogged with carbon, which causes the Check Engine Light to illuminate. This can result in moderate to severe misfires on acceleration and the EGR valve and passages will need to be cleaned.

The coolant outlet on the front of the lower intake manifold may develop a coolant leak.

I have tried a new switch no change.Have checked grounds under hood.

I got a Nissan Frontier 4X2 XE with a 4cyl engine. Could this be a senser? or just a messed up gauge. The thermostat has been replaced.

If it is a chain, do I need to change it if there is no problem with it?

Had to disconnect the air bag to clean out the header cage, now after reconnecting the air bag dash light is flashing. How do I stop this ? URGENT

I just tried this on my 2000 Frontier with airbad light flashing and it worked: Get in the car, close the doors, put the key in the ignition and turn it to the on position (do not turn it completely on) then open the door and reach down to press the dome light button 7 times. Shut the door and start the car. That will reset the airbag light.

My truck has 218,000 miles. I haven't had any major problems with it. Driving in the mountains of Western North Carolina it slows down a bit, but it will still accelerate on a 2-3% grade in fifth gear, but I will down shift to reduce strain on engine. Excellent truck, I am the second or third owner.
