THE BUTTJUICE BREAKDOWN CONTINUES!!!
Well, 07 trans is garbage. Replaced the trans, then discovered master cylinder was junk as well, and clutch fork was broken. Guess breaking the scales at 110lbs and 5' 7" is enough brute womanly force to blow out all of the clutch system driving in traffic 15 miles at a time... Had to replace the master cylinder, slave cylinder, clutch fork, transmission, added the exedy clutch and act flywheel.Soooo, every component in the drive line besides the rear end assy and the driveshaft has been replaced, and im sure those are about junked too by the schedule of how things have gone so far.
New 7k mile 07 trans makes significant bearing noise when under load. Im thinking the trans was junk from the particular hit it took, which is no imperfection from nissan, just more toilet luck. Still the reason the situation is where it is, was because of dog shit parts.
sooooo, another 450 labor to have the transmissions swapped again, send this piece of shit back to california for 100+ in freight, get a replacement, pay for more fluid, more rental cars,more time down, more irritation... Steering rack is leaking, rear end is starting to make noise.cd player still is broken. Just more problems, nothing out of the norm for nissan. My brother just mentioned to me he had the same issues with both his 300zx tt, and his pathfinder when he owned nissan. He too, will never buy another nissan and now owns a 535 and a srt10 ram instead of nissan toys.
at one point in time i really liked this car and wanted to put my extra ls1 into it, or do suspension mods to it for my wife and what not. At this moment in time, i really think driving it down a guardrail and into a creek bed would be more suitable for it.
At least she has a extra reliable 190,000 mile 96 base model 305 chevy 1500 2wd truck to borrow from my dad from time to time. It can get her through the 30 mile round trip to work and home without breaking down like this 13k dollar pile of scrap metal does.
Sorry to dog on some of your guy's passion as far as automobiles, but im pretty irritated at this moment in time. Its 21 degrees outside, my garage has my race car all taken apart and ive got no room to work on this so its just adding nitromethane to the already raging fire.
