If there is an engine oil leak, the engine oil pressure would drop and the engine could seize, increasing the risk of a crash.

Engine And Engine Cooling

Summary
Nissan is recalling certain model year 2011 infiniti fx, model year 2012 infiniti M, model year 2011-2012 Nissan Frontier, model year 2011-2012 Nissan xterra, model year 2011-2012 Nissan pathfinder, and model year 2012 Nissan nv vehicles. Some of the bolts that connect the engine oil cooler and the engine oil filter to the engine in these vehicles may have been manufactured to below specification strength. As a result, the bolt may break at the oil filter attachment point and can cause an engine oil leak.
Actions
Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will replace the connector bolts free of charge. The safety recall began on January 30, 2012. Owners may contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.
