Nissan Frontier ProblemsMisfire and check engine light due to clogged EGR valve
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 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 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 RecallsRear Seat Belt Anchor Bolt Not Properly Attached
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.
Certain vehicles may have been equipped with front wheel hubs that may not meet the design hardness specifications. A wheel hub that was manufactured below hardness specification may wear prematurely and eventually crack. If the vehicle is driven in this condition, the wheel hub may break, possibly resulting in a vehicle crash. Dealers will replace the left and right side front wheel hub assemblies to correct this concern.
