My truck has 36,500 miles on it, an automatic transmission, & has been well taken care of. This problem happened last year in the middle of a busy intersection. The only way that I could get it to go was by putting it in park & then drive again. I was told by the dealer that it was a "brake line failure", & it was fixed free of charge. Now it's happening again, less than a year later. It only seems to happen when I come to a complete stop on an incline. When I press the gas pedal, it revs, hesitates, grinds, & lurches going into gear. Diagnostics from the dealer don't show anything wrong. What is causing this problem? I also just realized that my A/C is leaking Freon. I'm afraid this truck is a lemon.

My 87 year old father took his truck in and they told him the knock sensor needed replaced, then said they need to replace the timing belt and spark plugs. He paid them $2800 to have the work done. Got the truck back and it is keeps missing. So truck is back in there and they say they believe it is a bad knock sensor they put in. We are unfortunately just finding out about this. My issue is in the cost of the repair, I priced the knock sensor and they range from about $25 to $200, a timing belt is $30-$50, new plugs under $20. So a total of over $2800 seems out right over charged.

WHAT ARE THE CHANCES A 2011 FRONTIER SL WOULD FRY THE MAIN COMPUTER FROM INSTALLING A NEW BATTERY?

More frequently than not, the ventilation will automatically start (even with the switch in off). This only happens in the morning and the system will start in the mode in which it was last running. When this occurs, it cannot be turned manually (or switched to another mode). However, if I turn off the vehicle (for example, after arriving at work), it will operate normally later in the day. When I restart the vehicle after this occurs, it automatically resets the trip odometer to zero. Additionally, when this happens the lights on the vent portion of the console are out, but all the other lights on the console are illuminated normally. When the system is running normally, there are no issues. However, what is causing the system to automatically start and why can't it be secured or switched to another mode?

Blows hot air and the switch won't engage did I over charge is it a computer safety (help)

Occasionally, I would turn the key and nothing would happen. I could wiggle the battery cable wires and then it would usually start. Yesterday, something different happened. When I turn the key, the dashboard lights come on for a second and there is a popping sound and the lights go off. Turn the key again and nothing. Disconnect the battery cables and put them back on and get a repeat of lights on for a second and a popping noise. Any suggestions on where I can start? My truck is stranded in someone's driveway.

Everything comes on but it will not start with the key or remote. It does not make any noise at all when key is turned over. What could be the problem?
I am at my wits end. I have tried everything, checked battery and terminals, fused, starter. Can you help me out? Thanks

dist cap and rotor and it still show misfire 1 cyl, fixing to install number 1 cyl fuel injector. Right now the engine misses bad

botton of it) and lower left shaft(where two pipe connect by a clan). Pick up does not smoke when cool and the oil seems to be ok..no leaK in the engine....low mile...what to do?...It started recently...afraid to drive it.

I cannot find knock sensor location. 98 Frontier 4x4 with 4 cyl engine. Getting flashing chk eng lite, and fault code for knock sensor malfunction.

it does eventually start just takes a few times or starts first try. Sometimes sounds like something is in way of something turning and makes a awful sound almost sounds like when vehicle is running and you try to start it .

When driving on the highway, my truck suddenly overheated with no warning. So we pulled over, shut it off and let it cool down but now it won't start. (06 Nissan Frontier, 2 WD, 4 cyl. automatic)

I've checked the gas cap many times and tightened it but the light won't turn off.

It will draw the battery down, so it won't start. Will work if I thump hard on top of dash.

The speedometer stopped working altogether so we replaced the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor). Now the speedometer readings never hit the real speed, and the speed it shows is constantly fluctuating up and down. What should I be looking at next?

So I checked the battery and alternator.and they both checked out good.

My truck has began making a low whining noise that coincides with acceleration. It's not a loud whine, but you can definitely hear it. I have checked the steering, I do not believe it's the power steering pump. I tried pushing the o/d button on & off, that doesn't seem to make any difference.

Truck has 74000 miles. noise started just this past week. No warning lights come on, just the ding. Similar to seatbelt warning sound. Any idea what it is? I love my truck but it's driving my nuts doing this!
