Nissan Frontier Problem
Average Mileage: 85,814 mi (27,200 mi - 160,000 mi)
The fuel level sensor can fail causing erratic or inaccurate fuel gauge readings. The Check Engine Light may also illuminate. Nissan has recalled 2006 - 2008 vehicles only for this fuel gauge issue. For more information on the recall, please click here»

Had erratic fuel gauge readings for 40,000 miles (I purchased used with 40,000 already on it)... Check engine light just came on so I purchased an OBD 2 scanner and got the P0463 code related to a bad fuel level sensor.

Fuel sensor doesnt work. Nissan decided it would be best to cover some vehicles but not others with the identical problem.

Filled it up and noticed that the fuel gauge was slow to reach fill. Eventually it did and I just brushed it off. The next time after the truck had been sitting for a few days in subzero temps I filled it up and now it stays stuck on a 1/4 tank and the check engine light has come on. I spoke to a guy at the local Nissan dealer and he said it could because of the freezing temps(which I originally thought)or it could be the gauge inside of the tank. After reading a lot of these similar issues I'm slightly concerned about it. It is supposed to warm up in a few days and I'll wait it out to see if it goes back to normal, but I have to say that I am more skeptical about that.

I HAVE HAD TO DO $1,000'S OF WORK TO AGED 2004 FRONTIER IN EFFORTS TO GET IT TO PASS CT STATE EMISSIONS, AS I CANNOT GET THIS "SERVICE ENGINE SOON" IDOIT LIGHT TO GO OFF. IN EFFORTS TO DO SO OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS, I FIND THAT THEY RECALLED THE 2003 MODEL DUE TO THIS... THEY HAD TO REPLACE THE GAS TANKS!?! SO LAST ROUND, I SPENT $875.00. THEN, AFTER MUCH FOOT-WORK, I HAD TO SET UP TO GET A WAIVER SIGNED & WAS ABLE TO DRIVE LEGALLY BUT AS SOON AS I NEED TO RE-INSPECT, I AGAIN HAVE TO SPEND OVER $750.00 IN ORDER TO GET A WAIVER AGAIN.
THE TRUCK RUNS FINE... I DON'T HAVE A SOLUTION OTHER THAN DISABLING THE IDIOT LIGHT... LOL

Service engine soon and fuel gage
I have had nothing but problems out of my vehicle and now we are the end of warranty, by 5 months and I am told that I need a Canister Vent Control Valve and a Evaporation Control Canister for my vehicle that has been well taken care of, oil changes regularly, washed and pampered. My vehicle has 77,711 miles on it and it is going to cost me 700 dollars to get it fixed! It was just in the Nissan Dealership for the Gas Sensor that went bad in JUNE, a recall on the airbags in MAY and now this. Nissan has gone down hill and I will be sure to pass it along, that Nissan's now deals with "Throw Away" vehicles! You pay 30 grand for a vehcile to last you 5 years, really???? WOW! I am beyond upset at how Nissan handles their customers, vehicles and warranties! NEXT TIME I WILL BUY A CHEVY!
