Just replaced heads on my 04 nissan frontier fired it up and both sides are ticking pulled passenger side valve cover and there is plenty of oil coming out any help would be great
I just had the heads done and now I can't get oil up to them. when I start the truck it sounds like the valves are going to explode. I pulled the valve covers and there's a very small amount of oil going to the heads. I double check the gaskets to make sure they were correct and they are.
2004 Nissan Frontier Recalls
Nissan is recalling 2002–2004 Frontier and Exterra models due to corrosion in the lower steering column joint that can limit movement of the joint, resulting in excessive load. This can lead to cracking of the shaft, which may result in loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash. Nissan will replace the steering column shaft and joint with a different design, free of charge.
