So I just got my 2006 Xterra S, I have heard of the problem with the coolant and trans. Is there a way to prevent this from happening?
Also, I think I have the bad fuel sensor but no recall on it. I didn't get the code but it said it was a bad fuel arm or something like that. What would be the best course of action?
Thanks, Nick

Change the radiator before you have a problem when it happen its fast and too late just a little antifreeze to kill the tcm.

So that's the only preventive maintenance you can do to prevent that from happening? Because that is the only thing really scares me about this car.

The trans computer is deep inside the trans and has no cover on it because trans oil is non conductive so nothing shorts out the computer,enter a little antifreeze which is conductive and the computer is trash.I would call Nissan with vin # and see what has done .

I will look into that, thank you for your help and advice. If this was a problem that was taken care of already, what should I do? Same for if it wasn't done, what should I do? I have looked into in and found that there are no open recalls and I know the air bag thing was an issue but was fixed.
Thanks again,
Nick

So I looked into it, It had the front airbag crash sensor taken care in 2009 of along with the ECM relay done in 2013.

Hi, is there anyway that you can take a picture of your engine area,namely those two hoses that goes into the firewall leading to the heater core,I'm having a antifreeze leak and since we have the same vehicle (model &year) I just wanted to make sure that my hoses look the same as yours. Thank you.

Oh yeah,these are what mine look like (notice the antifreeze coming up out of the other hose) the hose on the left has a nipple on it,I want to make sure that the one on the right didn't have one too.(that may be my problem)
