2005 Nissan Quest ProblemsFailing Engine Mounts Will Cause Thumping in Floor
A thumping heard and felt in the floor is often caused by failing engine mounts. A failing mount allows too much movement of the engine, and will require replacement.
Rattling and tapping in the front of the engine on the 2003-2016 Nissan Quest is very evident, especially on cold starts. This rattling noise should not be taken lightly as it warns of upcoming timing chain failure.
The cause of the noise is faulty timing chain guide rails and timing chain tensioners that wear out well ahead of schedule. These components are there to keep the timing chain tight and properly positioned. When these parts fail, the timing chain becomes loose, and pieces of the timing chain guides break off, falling into the oil pan.
To remedy the situation, Nissan/Infiniti has made revised guides and tensioners, but replacement can be very costly.
Proper oil change intervals and oil type may help slow or prevent the situation.
A coolant leak may develop from a plug on the front of the rear cylinder head, behind the timing cover.

2005 Nissan Quest RecallsFinger May Be Pinched When Adjusting Second Row Seat
The second row seat adjustment mechanism may pinch the operator's finger while adjusting the seat. This condition is a result of exposed adjuster components on the rear inside edge of the seat. Dealers will perform repairs required to correct this issue. The exact repairs are dependent on the production date of the vehicle. This recall began on December 19, 2005. The Nissan recall number is R0504.
When the third row seat is raised, it engages striker brackets, one on each side of the seat. The striker may become detached from its mounting bracket due to a broken weld. A failed striker can increase the risk of injury to third row seat passengers in the event of certain types of crashes. Dealers will replace the third row seat striker brackets to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin on December 19, 2005.
