    finally pulled out my frontier from the pier this am....



    here are my initial observations:

    1) aircon not so cold for a nissan. i suspect cleaning lang siguro to. havent checked it out yet.

    2) feeling ko underpowered sya for a 3.2L engine. is it? again, i have to check kung naalagaan ba sya ng previous owner.... like tune ups, air filter, etc

    by the way, when are we supposed to change the timing belt? any estimates on cost and other things to be replaced?

    3) it's bouncier than my isuzu pick up. maybe because my old isuzu pick up's leaf springs are old and weak na?

    4) "tok" sound when making a u-turn.... bale, naka full turn ang steering wheel. it's just 1 "tok" sound and not tok tok tok..... what could this be?

    thanks

    Congrats sa new ride nyo sir.. I will answer some question based sa experience ko sa Frontier ko.. I have 4x4 2003 model

    1. Nissan aircon is known as one of the best.. pa cleaning mo sir or pa check sa reputable shop.

    2.If I experience loss of power tune up and check filter sir balik sigla nyan... Minsan hinahataw ko para talsik carbon deposit... unless there is more like clutch etc... pa check nyo na lang.

    3. Baka nga.

    4.Sa front tires may stopper yan sa max full turn, magkabila-an. silipin nyo makikita nyo na pud-pud na yan. pag mag full turn ka nag metal-metal contact kaya may tok tok kang marinig. May replacement yan sa casa sir.. just specify pang 4x4 kasi iba ang sa 4x2.

    Hope this help

    thanks for the quick reply boss. i gave the pick up a thorough check this morning since i was busy yesterday. here's what i found out.....

    1) dirty air filter. maybe this is the reason why hirap sya o parang may pumipigil sa kanya.

    2) she does need to change oil. according to the owner, last change oil nya was 5k kms ago. how many liters ba kailangan nito?

    3) i noticed there are 2 fuel filters. do i need to change both at the same time? yung isang fuel filter is the one beneath the water fuel separator. tama ba ang term ko?

    4) timing belt ba gamit nito? i heard some say it is timing gear. when do i change this?

    5) previous owner said medyo matagal na nga ito hindi na cleaning ang aircon. ok... time to call my suking aircon technician. actually, malamig naman ang aircon but it is not "nissan" cold. i have owned a nissan sentra before at wala akong masabi sa lamig nya. i checked the aux fan at gumagana naman. parang medyo kulang lang nga ang freon. oh well.... i hope it's just a simple fix.

    thanks in advance.

    I think mga 5 liters of engine oil may subra pa .. tama 2 nga fuel filters nyan ang isa primary ung may water trap yan ang medyo mahal sir.. naka pag palit na ako nyan after na nag bio-diesel ako.. Regarding sa timing gear just consult the casa or reputable mechanic about sa condition nyan I myself di ko pa na gagalaw yan..

    Good luck to your ride sir... very reliable yan maske old school na engine just religiously do the PMS... true workhorse pickup

    Sa aircon 2.5T bayad ko sa casa 4T singil nila

    thanks for your reply. i did the PMS yesterday including the tune up. di ko na pinasok sa casa. i had it done with my suking shop.well, the pick up feels more magaan now. i tried driving hard yeesterday. pinaabot ko ng 3k rpm paakyat ng 5km na bundok. im happy na hindi tumaas ang temp ko. i also didnt notice any smoke sa likod! thats good.

    im having the aircon service today with my suking aircon technician. i hope mababalik nya ang lamig nissan nito. magkano singil nya? 1.2k with freon

    spent close to 2k yesterday just for parts sa PMS. i bought an oil filter, 2 fuel filter, air cleaner and a set of wiper blades! labor cost me around P800 for the PMS plus checking of brakes, bolt tightening and tire remounting.

    i think more than 6liters yata kailangan ng 3.2L engine. i brought 1 gallon and 2 1-liter oil. inubos nila lahat. i checked the dipstick this morning and kulang pa sya ng konte. siguro mga half liter to 1 liter ang kulang.

    i have a question on my frontier..... the tach needle seems to be erratic. yesterday, i was idling (according to the tach reading) at 1.5k rpms but the engine doesnt sound like mataas ang idling. i revved it a little and it went up and went back to around 1.5k at idle. everything in me, except my eyes, says that im not idling at 1.5k rpm. what i did was to tap the instrument panel on top (dashboard) and the needle went down to 800 rpm. now thats more like it.

    my tach needle has a tendency to get stuck and seems to be giving a false reading until i tap my dashboard. what could be wrong with this? something like this happend to my isuzu pick up pero more of nasa 0 lang ang reading. electrician said he just changed the fuse and all readings were normal again. tama kaya to? which fuse could this be?

    just bought a 2001 4x4 fronty. ride and aircon is okay,except na parang ang hina ng hatak. di kaya dahil nasanay lang me sa gasoline? like others observations, pag full turn, may tumutunog nga at ewan ko lang kung tama pang umaangat ng konti ang harapan pag ka tapos mag full turn, or feeling ko lang. himataw ko, for barely 80 to 85 kms, ang pinaka mabilis ko ay 110 lang kasi parang wala na, and consumed 1/4 of diesel sa tank ko according sa reading ng needle sa gauge. natural lang bang ganyan ka lakas ang fronty? but over all i love fronty, ganda porma, parang lagi me "on the go"
