    Boss vinj, i am using 235/70R15 tires. Dont know what the culprit is. Theres a little play at the steering, pero sa tingin ko, di naman dapat maka apekto yun kasi the ride should be stable even if there is a lil play. Been driving sorts of cars, pero dito ko lang na experience yun, with all the components ok as claimed by the technicians. Btw, the servitek i have had my rig checked is also a dealer of nissan. Tho i dont know if they really know whats wrong with the car. Naubos nga pera ko kaka balik sa kanila at for tips, kaso wala pa rin. Had it also checked at a "prestigious" suspension specialist but i have some hesitations with them kasi parang di nila alam masyado regarding torsion bars and stuff, and the quote is a lil high for repairs(11k!) not replacement of parts concerned, i.e. bushings and tie rods. And the nissan guy ( servitek) told me that theres nothing wrong with the car, at pag pinatingnan ko raw sa labas, baka kung ano ano lang ang sabihin na sira.

    Sensya boss, ang haba. Hehehe. Gusto ko lang ma resolve ang issue. TIA!

    Had it checked on another mechanic. Tie rods and center links are busted. Guys, can you suggest where i could find these, genuine but cheap? Thanks!

    BTW, as i usually post to Frontier owners, the ride is vastly improved if you reverse the lowest rear molye (the shortest one) then add a nice set of shocks.
    Thanks sir, at tranny has sliding problems, repair (or rebuild) for sure, any suggestion? The AT specialist thread isnt updated.

    Re the molye reverse, we'll do that. What would you recommend na shocks(yung sa cheaper side hehe)? TIA

    Additional question po, may aux fan po ang frontier 4x2 99 model? Kasi po bakita ko sa engine part yung fuse box at may slot para sa aux fan pero wala namang bakakabit ba aux fan, pwede ko po ba palagyan ito kasi napapansin ko mahina na ac nito lalo pag nasa trafic at hot weather totaly wala na yung lamig nya parang naka fan nalang, magkanu po kaya padagdag ng freon at palinis na din ng ac unit,. Merry christmas po to all..

    ^ Mukhang maraming sakit na yung Frontier mo.

    - Frontier has no aux fan.
    - The fuel filter (primary and secondary) is changed every 20,000kms (OEM or Baldwin would still be the best option).
    - Hindi mausok ang Frontier as long as it has been maintained properly; malaking cause niyan ang pag pabaya ng change oil and fuel filters regularly. Possibly also your injection pump may need servicing and calibration given na medyo may edad na yung sasakyan.
    - ATF and differential fluid is changed every 40,000kms. you can refer to the owner's manual for the specifications and all the other vehicle service works info/required).
    - Have your a/c serviced; it's not the lack of an auxilary fan that is causing the a/c cooling problems. As for cost, depends on what may need replacement.

    RE. the air filter, malaking bagay sa FC and emissions pag malinis ang air filter lagi. Keep the air filter clean and i-rev mo din ng redline every so often to clear up the carbon build up. I remember my old Frontier, kahit i redline sa first and second gear or while at standstill, walang kausok-usok unless medyo madumi yung air filter ko.

    Thnx po sir vinj, and noted po..one more thing, about sa tunog barya sa ilalim e nakita ko na kung saan nagmumula, sa may puno mismo ng tranmision at yung propeller, pero hindi yung cross joint or center bearings, itinaas ko 2 rear wheel at inilagay sa 4th gear na kung saan malakas yung tunog barya.. Sabi ng pinsan ko e may turnilyo daw yun dun sa loob at baka daw yun ang maluwag, maari nga kasi maganda pa ang bearing at cross joint. Pag nakahiram ako ng socket wrnch tom e babaklasin ko.

    Alam nyo din po ba panu magpalit ng bulb ng a/c swtch, busted na palagay ko at wala n ilaw pero functioning pa naman yung a/c unit..thnx
