The vehicle accelerates real slow and has vibration in the engine. Ran a OBD2 scanner and got the scan trouble codes. There were two codes detected, a P0300 and a P0328. The P0300 was a multiple misfire problem and the other was the knock sensor code. These parts are both killers on a person's wallet. Now I see why the dealer repairs are so expensive.

The EGR valve can become clogged with carbon, which causes the Check Engine Light to illuminate. This can result in moderate to severe misfires on acceleration and the EGR valve and passages will need to be cleaned.
The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to a defective charcoal canister vent control valve. The charcoal canister is a component in the Evaporative emissions (EVAP) system. Our technicians tell us a failed vent valve will require replacement.
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»
The coolant outlet on the front of the lower intake manifold may develop a coolant leak.
A whining or buzzing type noise may develop from the timing chain area caused by excess slack in the secondary timing chains. Nissan has issued a service bulletin (NTB09-128) regarding this issue. Replacement of both secondary timing chains and their tensioner shoes will be necessary to repair this concern. As part of this repair, the engine oil and filter should also be replaced.
The distributor shaft bearing can become rusty, and seize causing the engine to stall or not start. The failed distributor will commonly require replacement.
The fuel injectors can fail and cause drivability problems. Often there is no Check Engine light and the failures can be caused by corrosion of the connector, clogging beyond the point of cleaning, and/or internal failures.
About 3 months ago the right front control arm broke while I was pulling out of a parking lot and the right front wheel buckled under the truck. Yesterday the left front control arm broke while I was going at 45 mph. The left wheel blew out and the whole left front of the truck buckled. This truck has never carried heavy loads or been off road.
