Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety. Notes: For years, Nissan trucks and SUVs have had problems with coolant destroying the transmission. And for years, Nissan has done nothing about it.

The 2007 is no different than the 2006 and 2005. Just avoid it.

I filled my fuel tank with about 19 gallons. When I started the truck the fuel needle never moved. Started to drive to work and the fuel level dropped to empty and the light turned on. After driving for 30 miles the service engine light came on. I have no idea why.

After filling up with fuel on 10/1/2012 my gas gauge went to empty and the service engine soon light came on. Ever since the gauge would fluctuate up and down and the service engine light remains on. I see lots of post on-line about this faulty fuel sending unit on alot of different Nissan vehicle models and years. How come there hasn't been a recall for this part?

The contact owns a 2007 Nissan Frontier. The contact stated that the service engine warning light illuminated as the fuel gauge displayed a false reading. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not contacted about the failure. The failure and current mileage was 90,000.

The fuel gauge indicated that the car had a quarter of a tank when the car stopped on the highway because it was out of fuel. Then the gauge indicated empty when I was able to refuel the car. This was a recall in the 2006 and 2008 models. Why is this not being recalled in the 2007 model.

The check engine light came on when the gas tank was under a 1/4 full. I filled the gas tank up and the check engine light stayed on and the fuel gauge read empty. When approximately the gas was down to 3/4 full the gas gauge began to work again. The check engine light stayed on. When I filed the gas tank the gas gauge showed empty. I had the check engine light checked out and it was identified as a faulty fuel sensor. I cleared the check engine light which stayed cleared until the next time the gas tank was filled and the issues came back no fuel gauge reading and check engine light.

Service engine soon light was on when I started my truck that day and the fuel gauge was malfunctioning. After doing a search on the internet, it sounds like it may be the fuel sending unit or fuel pump which is a known issue with this model. Thanks.

problem #1

Frontier 6-cyl

  • 100,012 miles
After refueling the vehicle, I noticed that the fuel gauge was still indicating that it had only 1/4 tank of fuel. I drove about 2 miles and the "service engine soon" light came on. After arriving at home I shut off the vehicle, checked the fuel cap for tightness, and restarted. The fuel gauge dropped to empty, the low fuel light came on, and the ses light remained on. Later that day I drove about 35 miles under the aforementioned conditions. Upon stopping and restarting the vehicle, the fuel gauge went to full, but the ses light remained on. That is the situation as it stands now.I have not contacted Nissan directly yet, but I have researched the situation, and found numerous reports online of the same problem, and of Nissan's unwillingness to resolve the issue at no charge to the consumer.(it is apparently a defective fuel sending unit.) my reason for reporting this is twofold. 1) to make everyone aware of the issue, and 2) to express my concerns that a malfunctioning fuel gauge could cause a crash if the driver ran out of fuel while in motion, and had to make an emergency stop.
