Abnormal Noise From Front of Engine

A whining or buzzing type noise may develop from the timing chain area caused by excess slack in the secondary timing chains. Nissan has issued a service bulletin (NTB09-128) regarding this issue.

2011 Nissan Pathfinder Recalls

Potential Engine Oil Leak

Some of the bolts that attach the engine oil cooler and filter to the engine may have been manufactured below specification strength.
