I have posted this issue on numerous automotive forums with no new ideas. Another possibility is checking for a converter restriction which has been mentioned as has the timing. Auto enthusiasts who love performance vehicles know that absolutely nothing is more important than getting the newest aftermarket parts for your car. If the wire leading to or from the…. This will allow you to pull the transmission from the rest of the engine. You might also have a plugged rad. Thank you for all the suggestions.
If you need to flush out the fins, always flush from the engine bay out. The coolant system recovery does seem to be working correctly. As for the other bearings, I had all the belts off the pulleys about 5k ago when I changed the water pump and all pulleys were tight and spun freely. Once the old one is off, install the new one you will need to bleed all the brakes and clutch. Initially installed a non-factory replacement clutch and had problems. After a few weeks of this, I started chasing the problem.
If you run a jumper wire across the two terminals on the low pressure switch on the dryer long silver canister on passenger side rear you will kick on the compressor and be able to add refrigerant; then it will work. Then, 2 weeks ago, on a 70 degree day, I hooked up my truck to an empty trailer maybe 1000lbs and towed it 15 miles. Place a pan underneath the transmission tail housing to protect your floor from dripping transmission fluid. Now about the fan clutch. Not enough info in the question.
With this write-up, you can do a radiator replacement. The lower radiator hose is always at least 30 degrees cooler than the upper hose. There mayh not be neough leaked gel to get the fan blades dirty, but it can be really obvious upon closer inspection. I beleive what happens inside is that as the engine heats up it heats up the gel in the fan hub assy as well. If you will get you a Haynes Repair Manual for a 1998 Frontier at any auto parts store and follow the directions in it you shouldn't have any problems. I did change the radiator hoses.
The truck will most definitely run hot with a trailer behind it so I hope that will help them figure it out. I have a 2002 Nissan Frontier with a non supercharged 3. If the Pathy clutch operates in a similar manner, a way to test the clutch could be to see if the fan can be stopped when you know the threshold for clutch lock has not been met. I have changed the cluth two different times in my sons 1998 Frontier. The dealer is going to drive the truck with a trailer behind it tomorrow, hopefully they will be able to diagnose it after that. Is the hose still hanging from the cap and have yo checked it for cracks? I'm going to borrow pressure testing equipment from autozone.
I have had this truck since I bought it used in 2004 with 26k miles. As in, when you rev it up it gets louder? They tend to cost more than aftermarket models, which may not match the stock part as well. A compression check on the cylinders has not been done yet. I started the truck cold and jammed a srew driver into the fan blades to stop it from spinning, the noise continued. I suspect the pilot bushing could be some of your problem. If not, I will rent a timing light and check timing first, check all the belt driven pulleys, rent a compression tester and then a vacuum gauge. This started happening occasionally at first once every 2 weeks then towards fall it started happening more frequently, almost every 90 degree day.
It seems like you are on the case and doing a good investigative job on this. If it is a manual transmission then possibly the clutch is worn. While climbing the hills at 40mph and about 2500 rpm, the temp needle climbed to the near danger zone. It appears to be a tough nut to crack. Find our more about a or get! Also look for a hairline crack around where the cap meets the filler neck.
We stock fan clutch parts for most Nissan models including , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , and. Clean mating surface before putting on new pump with new seal. This causes the gel to cool and thus contract. Is it possible it is reading higher than it actually is? The Nissan you chose was designed with the highest quality and skill; it needs new parts of a similar top level of reliability. Do you recall a leak underneath? The clutch is one of the most important parts of any vehicle, letting you shift gears and adjust your speed.
I am towing a trailer to the dealership with another vehicle so that they can drive the truck under load Wednesday, which is forecast to be 85 degrees. I replaced the radiator cap, the thermostat tested the old one and tested the new one before installing, I took the radiator to a rad shop and had it boiled and flow tested, I replaced both coolant temp sensors, and then finally the water pump. I immediately went to napa and replaced my fan clutch. There you go, all the space needed to do the work. Remove rad shroud, remove fan clutch, remove trans cooler lines, use a flare nut wrench to avoid stripping the hex remove the rad brackets then top and lower hose ends. Took me about 20 minutes.
I might suggest that to the dealership since I do not think I can rent a tester from auto zone. However, on the fan clutches that I buy for our coaches, they are called '2-speed'. Water Pump and Fan Clutch share the same shaft. Then soon after with drag. My coolant level hasn't dropped. If the centre is dirty, your gel has most likely leaked out and your hub is shot. Mine won't spin a quarter turn.
