1993 Nissan Pickup (D21) Problems

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.

Perform regular maintenance/oil changes to prevent timing chain failure


Regular maintenance is recommended to avoid timing chain failure. Rattles may develop in higher mileage vehicles. Regular oil changes will help reduce the incidence of this problem.

My 1993 D21 just turned over 244000 miles & still runs strong. Only repairs done (other than regular upkeep)replace the idler arm @ 243000 & a rusted out fuel tank. (very hard to find a "good" used tank.) The oil has been changed every 2000-3000 miles & a clutch last year. Takes a lickin' & Keeps on tickin'!

i have a 93 hardbody and everything on it is still stock and it has 245,498 miles on it and it still runs great
