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.

Nissan Frontier RecallsStarter Wiring Harness Short Circuits On Heat Shield
The wiring harness to the starter motor may short circuit on a heat shield. Dealers will inspect and adjust the position of the starter motor wiring harness free of charge to resolve the concern.
The anchor nut that is welded on to the weld nut plate that secures the rear seat belt mounting bolt may not be properly manufactured. This can result in the rear seat belt not securing an occupant in a crash. Dealers will inspect and repair the seat belt anchor attachment as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
These trucks are being recalled because an electrical circuit breaker may have been incorrectly installed behind the lower left portion of the dashboard. As a result, a bolt may wear through the wire harness covering causing an electrical short circuit. This could result in a fire. Dealers will inspect and repair the wire harness and circuit breaker as necessary to correct this concern.
