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.

95 Nissan pickup-best small pickup ever. Bought it in 2003 w/ 80K miles now has 192k on it. Runs great. No complaints. Paint is fading but my daughter's BF is a body man so I'm going to have him paint it for me. No plans to get rid of it for a long while.

Until 3 weeks ago, my '95 Nissan Pickup XE has been the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned. It started every time I turned the ignition. The only problem areas I have experienced were with the alternator, starter, and passenger side turn signal. The alternator has been replaced 3 times. I am not sure why alternators go out in this model. The starter was replaced due to wear & tear. The turn signal light bulb holder/wire assembly had to be replaced due to corrosion. Recently, I had to replace the distributor because I installed the wrong model rotor & cap, which destroyed the distributor. I have not had much success with replacement distributors. The first replacement lasted 7 days before failing. The second replacement is causing my engine to perform poorly. Not sure if this is due to the part or the mechanic who installed the distributor. (I'm not the mecahanic) Overall, this truck was a great purchase. It's not the fastest vehicle on the road, not the prettiest. But, it has been reliable. And that goes a long way with me.
