2004 Nissan Titan Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2004 Nissan Titan

Overheating and/or lack of proper venting can cause the rear axle seals to leak. Excessive fluid loss can result in major damage to the rear differential assembly and/or axle bearings.

A weak or failing fuel pump can cause power loss due to lower fuel pressure and lean mixture conditions. This rarely causes a Check Engine Light to illuminate and should be repaired to avoid catalytic converter damage.

Water can cause corrosion in the connector between the engine and transmission wiring harness. The engine may crank but not start, stall, and/or the transmission may not shift correctly.

Nissan is recalling certain 2004 - 2010 Titan, Armada, & QX56 vehicles. Also included are 2005 - 2010 Frontier, Xterra, and Pathfinder vehicles for faulty front and/or rear suspension lower control arms. The problem is the control arm's attaching point to the vehicle's chassis. During the manufacturing process, some control arms may contain welds that do not meet Nissan's strength specs, and if they break, it may result in loss of vehicle control, and a possible crash.

The rear center seat belt may be too short, making it difficult to pull out after the automatic locking mode has engaged. Due to this difficulty, rear seat occupants may not use the belt consistently, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the rear center seat belt to correct this concern. This recall began on June 11, 2007. The Nissan recall number is R0701.

 

The wiring for the air bag system and front seat belts is routed through the rear doors. The wires may break from bending, due to the opening and closing of the rear doors. If wires break, and short circuit, the seat belt pretensioner may deploy and make the seat belt unusable. It's possible the wires could break and cause the front air bags not to deploy in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will replace the wire harness cover with a different type, and reroute the harness. The recall began February 19, 2007.
