1992 Nissan Pickup (D21) Problems

Hardbody dash cluster problems

I purchased my 1992 Nissan D21 truck in 1999 at 32,000 miles from the original owner. At that time the gas gauge was wandering. Also the anti-lock brake light was on. A few months later the gas gauge stopped working, but the low gas warning light still worked when gas got low in the tank. Then the temperature gauge stopped working. I took this car to several Nissan dealerships and they all said to replace the gas tank sending unit, which I tho...

Ticking Noise When Cold Due to Broken Exhaust Manifold Studs

The exhaust manifold on the 3.0 liter engine often warps and cracks, breaking off the studs between the cylinder head and the exhaust manifold.   The noise may be most noticeable when the engine is cold.

based on 3 customer reviews
I have two D21's, a 1993 and 1994. The 93 has 280K miles and still kicking. It has been the best of the best. It is so good I found a 94 with 150K. The frames are bad to rust out. I had the rusty 93 frame reinforced on both sides. The controls for the heater and AC are my biggest problems. Otherwise, they are dependable. Best engine ever!
i have one almost 20 years so dependable
I bought my Nissan (92) new in 1991. It had 4 miles. I have 145,000 miles on it now and it runs like a champ. Keep the oil changed and this truck will last well into 300,000 miles. I get offers to buy it all the time. I call mine "Bernie." I own a BMW but Bernie is always my preference. Love this truck.
