2006 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.
The exhaust manifold 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.
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.
