Nissan 2011-2012 Frontier Recall for Oil Leak

2012-nissan-frontier II
Nissan is recalling 2011 and 2012 Frontiers because of some faulty connecting bolts related to the oil cooler and oil filter, and how they attach to the engine block.

The NHTSA report states some of the oil filter bolts may break at the oil filter and cause an oil leak, which would in turn cause the oil pressure to drop and potentially, if ignored, allow the engine to seize. Others models potentially involved include the NV van, Xterra, and Pathfinder.  

Nissan will noitify owners and dealers will replace the connector bolts free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or about January 19, 2012. Contact Nissan at 800-647-7261 for more information or go to www.safecar.gov

@Mike,

What blown tranny?

Tranny worked fine, I just noticed syncroes going into 3rd and 5th as being somewhat questionable on the track. The brass rings were the issue and despite still road racing my pickup, I managed to get it replaced under warrenty, no cash from my pocket!

More of a reason to go back to a 4-cylinder with 5-speed manuel, those things are bulletproof from Toyota!

@toycrusher84,

I did not recall the rpm but I could run in low-4 without the front engaged, actually gutted the front axles to save on weight up front and could run 80-ish on graded roads in low-4 during desert races!

@Oxi - You have my attention, what year was the truck? Was it IFS or SFA? Why did you convert it to 2wd instead of starting with a 2wd truck? If you gutted the axle how did you keep the hubs attatched?

Nissan -the #2 Japanese car company.

Toyota is the #1 Japanese car company. I am sure oxi will agree.

@Buy American Or Say Bye To America,

Toyotas are made in the United States!

oxi did not have a blown tranny. It was damaged tranny and replaced under warranty. Huge difference!

I must say, this thread has taken a rather amusing path. Lets see Oxi, aka Pete, aka George talk his way out of this mess.
I bet the approach will be:
accusing everyone again of internet stalking, throw in some vague accusations of "you hate me bacause I've raced Baja", a few comments about Toyota hating, and a rant to Mark Willliams to purge this site of all the stalker/hater guys.

@oxi,

Don't sweat the haters...

They only hate you because they aint you!

@Lou - Don't forget aka Fred and aka Olivia (?)... That's a new one...

@toycrusher84,

It was a 4wd, stock class rules stipulate you must keep stock a-arms thus 4wd a-arms are bigger and stronger than the 2wd a-arms, huge differance...

If you move into the old class 7S or class 7, you can modify those a-arms thus you would see more 2wd's racing the faster classes compared to the stock classes...

And yes it was a 4wd and when compared to the 2wd, you get larger parts and components like wheel bearings insteade of wimpy spindals, larger a-arms, better tie rods, etc...

So when you gut the front to save weight, you remove the axle shafts and gut the pumpkin and remove the driveshaft and still reap the benefit of the stronger 4wd components...

Hubs attached? That was very easy because with the arrival of the Tacoma in 1995, they had the PreRunner option which was basically the look and height of the 4wd but it was a 2wd...

And how Toyota sealed the front hubs/wheel bearings was with a seal cover that was tapped into the opening where the axle would normally go into from the factory i.e. part number that we used to seal our front hubs!

Other advantage of the 4wd vs 2wd was the ground clearance and stronger gearing like 4.10's in the rear 8 inch axle vs 2wd!

Sweet deal!

@toycrusher84,

I forgot to mention it was IFS which is better suited to handle the rough Baja terrain at speed and gives more running ground clearance when compared to straight axle fronts...

The other safety advantage of running IFS vs solid axle fronts is rollovers! Much greater chance of rollover down in Baja with a straight axle front vs IFS...

Got it, thanks

Is Olivia Oxi's mom?

@toycrusher84 - alternative personalities is less disturbing a thought than actual, real live fans ;)

@ Oxi You think I'm staking you? There's that world class arrogance again. If I was going to stalk someone it wouldn't be you. Get over yourself dude.

@Jordan L - Oxi would be real easy to stalk. The dimwit posted pictures of his new house and the real estate sign. Run the number through MLS, and voila, we all can go visit oxi while he works on his truck.
Google Earth can give us a nice street view.

@Oxi - be careful what you put on the internet.
Sleep tight.

This Oxi character seems to be loved by one and all. Toyota is a great company, Someone has to recycle all of our tin cans and plastic bags.

@Lou,

So you are one of those stalkers?

I would be careful if I were you, all I have to do is contact the authorities and you could get into a lot of trouble!

Your a dumba$$, your IP address will show me and the authorities where you come from moron!

It is very easy to track people these days but since your one of those internet stalkers, I am concerned and maybe this site should ban you and the other stalkers for security reasons!

If not, I will make sure I contact the FBI for possible threats and harassment by you and others on this site and your IP address is all they need as a start to track your bank account, work, vehicle VIN, etc...

@Sasha ,

And where is your evidence and facts?

You sound very racist!

@ Lou. That's a great idea. I think I'll do that this weekend. If I'm going to be accused of something I might as well roll with it

@ oxi. Last I checked the FBI had no jusidiction in Canada (that's where Lou and I are from). Your best bet would the CIA. They handle international problems. I though a former soldier would know that. Just another one of your B.S. stories I guess.

@Jordan L,

As a citizen of the U.S., I would go to the FBI and they would move from there...

Be careful, what you just said can be viewed as harassment and used against you in a court of law!!!

Internet threats are taken seriously and have been prosecuted in a court of law!!!

I would be careful if I were you or any other member making threats and harassment!!!

@Jordan L - he could sick Homeland Security on us.
Run for your lives if you hear helicopters in the middle of the night. Navy SEALS have nothing to do now, since they picked off Bin Ladin. LMAO

@Oxi - grow up. I'm pointing out the fact that you spread all sorts of personal information all over the place on the internet. It is all public. Anyone can access it. I don't see any copyrights on any of your pictures, and anyone that can right click, copy and paste can access your pictures. (FYI - You can disable right click, copy and save features on photos and infromation).
Someone probably could get your home address by Googling your name.
It ain't high tec, and it ain't rocket science.
Crap. Even your truck licence plate says Oxi.
A guy could frequent the popular offroad spots in Wisconsin and find you.
Threaten all you want.
You're the one that set yourself up for one big, fat fail.

It is laughable at best.

Keep up the good work.
We all need the comic relief.

@Lou and others,

How old are you guys?

GROW UP!

Maybe if you guys had some ACTUAL pickup truck stories, maybe you too could post something BUT you guys are just SHEEPLE and buy pickups just to drive around town with while some of us push the envelope of a pickup and are not only proud of what we do but have stories to back up what we say!

Any moron can get in and drive a pickup down the paved road, show some originality and doing something WORTHY with your pickup!

And STOP making threats, you can be prosecuted!

The federal military is forbidden to go after U.S. citizens per Posse Comitatus though who follows the Constitution and rule of law anyways right?

@Oxi - what threats?
You posted all sorts of personal crap.
I'm just pointing out how easy you have made it for people to find you.
It ain't rocket science.
Yup, post pics of one's house, the real estate sign with the MLS number, post pics of your truck, and licence plate, you might as well post your address and phone number. Your racing exploits are a matter of public record.
You don't need to be Shirlock Holmes to follow those clues.
Duh!!!!
I really don't give a sh-t.
How old am I?
Guess?
I can tell how old you are by the pics you have posted. A middle aged guy trying to recapture some glory of one's youth.
I can tell tons of stories about offroading and racing. 99 % of the time, those stories would be highly irrelevant to the thread. When I do draw from personal experience, I do not do it in a condescending or arrogant way.
Instead of trying to threaten, and intimidate me, why don't you just admit you F-ed up and go on your less than merry way.

@Lou +1

@oxi - racing a pickup is just as pointless as buying one to impress your city dwelling neighbours. A truck is a purpose built tool for work. It will never be as good at people hauling as a mini-van or perform like a purpose built race vehicle. Stop pretending your niche is in any way more important than anyone else's.

@Lou,

It's illegal in BOTH countries and you can be prosecuted!!!

Don't push it!!!

Let it go!!!

What exactly is oxi going to have Lou prosecuted on?

First spy VIDEO of oxi entering Canada to file charges against Lou

Here is what our spy shooter captured.

@oxi,

Go oxi go!!!

@ oxi - Your such a dork with all your fake aliases. Steve the cheerleader may be your dumbest yet!

this might be the story of the year here.

Oxi, there have been no threats of bodily harm made against you in this thread, therefore what exactly would you "go to the FBI" and complain about?

Info posted online is in the public domain, therefore there is no illegal usage and if you are dumb enough to put up pics of your address and license plate, thats on you, no one has broken any laws.

@Lou,

Your the one that said you could stop by my house, that implies "intent" because I doubt the way you guys speak sometimes in this forum that it will be a friendly encounter...

I do not go on the web to search about other members! I keep it within the forum and respect others. When I post pictures, that is my choice and helps to prove my points unlike you guys who just have stories with nothing to back them up with!

But when others post pictures from my own accounts, that is creepy and darn right concerning especially in this day and age with predators, stalkers and other creeps on the web!

Get it now?

@toycrusher84,

I only post as "oxi"...

I have posted before from 3 different sites or IP addresses in my state. By simply checking the imposters IP addresses you will find where they come from and it is not from my state!

@toycrusher84,

You have some valid points but desert racing is one of the most brutal forms of racing a vehicle period! If components can survive that arena, it is a better guage of durability!

I recall what some of the Ford Rough Riders used to say about Baja racing, Steve Olligas and Dan Smith that a typical desert race like the Baja 500 is the equivalent to 200,000-300,000 miles of vehicle testing in just one race!

That is HUGE and should be respected! That is why I love desert racing because of that type of respect it gets from not only the drivers but the OEM's...

And a body on frame pickup can haul more weight than a minivan or other unibodi type vehicles!

That is why I choose a body on frame pickup over any other form for my main vehicle purchase!

@Oxi - poor yotagirl doesn't like the fact that beer cans and shopping bags are turned into Toyotas. Pressed beer cans and a 4 banger turned into a serious offroader. Serious and 4 banger do not ever ever ever go together in a sentance. that is the funniest thing Ive ever heard.

@Sasha,

Got evidence?

I would like to see your sources please?

Oh wait, could be another racist on the forum?

Have you ever toured a Toyota plant?

@Sasha - for once Oxi isn't completely wrong. I used to run circles around my buddies Toyota with my Suzuki Samurai in the sand and mud. It's so light it would probably float in quicksand. The only downside to having a 4-banger is that it's top speed is under 50mph. Of course, Samurai's aren't particularly stable or safe past 50mph anyways.

@toycrusher84 - your Suzuki is what 1/2 the weight of a Taco Ext Cab 4x4? Did you weld over a 1,000 lb of steel to it, and put all sorts of other stuff on it so your rig weighs as much as a Tacoma? Offroading with pressed beer cans is fine and dandy if you don't ruin the party with extra weight. Oxi's abortion needs an engine 2x in size and power to haul it down the road let alone through a mud hole. I don't mind 4 bangers but don't send a boy to do a man's job. Numbnuts outclassed his Taco 4 banger with all the mods he did.
Call me racist because I don't like pressed beer cans with a Toyota emblem on it? What a joke. I didn't say anything bad about the Japanese. Besides aren't those pressed beer cans put together in the USA? Well Mexico too. I like Sushi and burittos.

@Sasha,

Pressed beer cans, please provide your source?

A 4-cylinder with a 5-speed manual and 4.10's in the rear handles quit well off-road!

Sure it is not a top speeder on the street but I can launch off the street light pretty darn well with the manual and control my entries onto on ramps hitting and exceeding the speed limits unlike most of the zombies on the road...

It's an off-roader, so I do not expect it to handle like a Tacoma X-Runner on the street!

Carrying extra weight and higher payload takes responsibility and a good driver and I have set my suspension up pretty well to handle the sitch!

Your just jealous!

@Sasha,

You sound like you have N0 experiance off-roading!

Engine size is one of the LAST things to be considered...

What's your:

ground clearance
suspension travel
gearing in rear and T/case
tire size
approach/departure/breakover angles
skid plates
proper bumpers with proper retrieval points
water fording
weight distribution
lockers

I have been off-roading for many years and engine size DOES NOT MATTER, it's how you setup the vehicle and then the idiot behind the wheel!!!

@oxi - thank you for finally admitting that you are the idiot behind the wheel. Size doesn't matter? I bet you first heard that one from your boyfriend. Don't worry little Oxi, size doesn't matter.

@Sasha,

Keep ignoring the questions I ask proves your the idiot!

I would refrain from comments like you just made...

wee wee oxi - since I work my truck for a living, I don't care about the measurements you so desparately need to fulfill your 'ota life. Look at a spec sheet for a Dodge 3500 crew with 8 ft box. Cummins, and manual transmission with 3.73 axle gears. I believe the transfer case low is 2.72 gears. Since I have a real motor in my truck, I don't need to compensate any further. I have a 4 inch lift with Bilstein shocks and dual steering stabilizers and Toyo M55 265/70/17 tires.
I have a Buckstop Boss bumper winch in the front and I made my own rear bumper, headache rack,and cargo rack.I have a 110 gallon fuel tank combination tool box. That would be over a 1,000 lb with the weight of the tank. You throw in tools, welder, air compressor, or what ever else I need and I'm usually running at least 2,000 lb in the box. You play offroad, I work offroad. Are you happy now?
You don't like my comments, then don't say anything stupid. Now go play with your little inline 4.

@Oxi - you left yourself fully exposed once again. First photos, and now words. Size doesn't matter if you are only pleasing yourself.

@Lou,
The Dakar Rally has started(talking about Nissan) into its 3rd day. Great battle between Mini, Toyota Hilux and Hummer for a stage win and leading overall.

"Oxi would be real easy to stalk. The dimwit posted pictures of his new house and the real estate sign. Run the number through MLS, and voila, we all can go visit oxi while he works on his truck. Google Earth can give us a nice street view."

@Lou,

Keep it up! oxi is going to enjoy pressing charges on you!

"@Oxi - you left yourself fully exposed once again. First photos, and now words. Size doesn't matter if you are only pleasing yourself. "

@Lou,

You are a really piece of work!

oxi is going to enjoy pressing charges on your a$$ for harassment!

You can't hide from the law just because you're in Canada!

@Jay - aka Oxi -
Funny, real funny. If the RCMP, FBI, CIA, Homeland Security, CSIS showed up at my door step, all I would have to do is tell them to read a few months worth of Oxi posts. Case dismissed.
@Jay or toyracer, or Steve
what threats?
You posted all sorts of personal crap.
I'm just pointing out how easy you have made it for people to find you.
It ain't rocket science.
Yup, post pics of one's house, the real estate sign with the MLS number, post pics of your truck, and licence plate, you might as well post your address and phone number. Your racing exploits are a matter of public record.

It isnt cyberstalking (if you want to use the correct term) to tell someone that they posted a bunch of personal information that sets them up to be stalked. It isnt cyberstalking to to point out how lame that is. It isnt cyberstalking to get a laugh out of being threatened for stalking.
Im not the only guy that think Oxis exploits are hillarious. Yup, throw us all in jail for disagreeing with the king of the offroad world.

Yeah, great and fantastic article sir, we've got guidelines from this like you've said that if we're in France there could be a lots of ways to learn and to do things, very nice article and thanks for sharing your valuable thoughts with us.
