Just show's if We take care of them, No Abuse, and a
Very Good Driver, they can last a Long Long Time.

I Read Post's on other Forum's Touting AfterMarket Oil
filter's and Promoteing Their Favorite Oil Filter that
is not a Geniune Nissan Oil Filter.

I also read about those same Owner's complaining about
Knocking and Rattleing on Cold Engine StartUp.

Here Lately I've Read some post's saying that
the Geniune Nissan Oil Filter isn't very good.

I actually called the DealerShip that Knew the Owner of
the MILLION MILE FRONTIER. I asked them if he used a
Geniune Nissan Oil Filter. The Service Writer told me
that He Bought the Geniune Nissan Oil Filter's By The
Case!!!

I've alway's used a Geniune Nissan Oil filter Since
1993 on the '93 Hardbody and Also on '13 V6 Frontier
that replaced the '93. The '93 Never had an Engine
Knock or Rattle and So Far the '13 doesn't Either, but
it's still early on the '13.

If useing Nissan Oil Filter's is good enough for a
Nissan Frontier to go a Million Mile's then it surely
is good enough for me.

Are there Oil Filter's that have Better Micron
Filtering, Sure There Is, but that is NOT THE WHOLE
STORY ~ FLOW RATE is WAY MORE Important IMO ~ If the
Oil isn't getting to the Top End ON TIME, then It
doesn't Matter WHAT the Micron Filtering Is IMO.

Don't let Anybody Sway YOU from useing a GENIUNE NISSAN
OIL FILTER.

Regards,

Barney,

What are we going to do?  I purposely did not write anything here for about a week and it was still dead. 

Don't know.

Hey Jim,

Well at least we are still alive. I think that is a
Silver Lineing we can be Thankful for.   

I went to Put New Tire's & repaint my Lawntractor's
Dump Cart and found that the Bottom was rusting
through, so that's been my ongoing project. It was an
ordeal to take it apart, cause several of the Bolt's I
had to use my Angle Grinder's cutting Wheel to cut the
Bolt's off. Today it was sanding and Painting. All
went good,, so I'll start to put it back together in a
few day's.

I got the Harbor Freight Small Tire Changer about a
year or so ago,, and it sure has been helpful takeing
the Old Tire's Off and Putting the New Tire's back on.

I've been thinking about getting the Full Size Tire
Changer from Harbor Freight for my Trailer Tire's, then
I could get my tire's online cheaper and Mount them
myself. I need to check and see if Harbor Freight has
a Bubble Wheel Balancer, so I can balance the Wheel's
myself.

I think that it's going to look good when I get it back
together,, or at least I hope it will. I paid 200
dollar's for the 17 cu ft cart about 20 year's ago.
They want a lot more for them now,, so I think this
Refurb will help it to last, I hope a lot longer. I
use it mainly to transport the Weed Eater, chainsaw and
other thing's, so I don't have to do so much walking.

If you need an AGM Battery for a Lawn Tractor, they've
got them on EBay at good price's. I just got a 12V 230
cca AGM for 40 $'s.

Regards,

Hey Jim,

Go to nissanpartsdeal.com , You can put in your Vin#
and get the correct part # for the Drain Plug Copper
Washer.

Then go to EBay or Amazon and search by part #.

So far so good. I just got some more mask's from
China.

I never needed to change the copper seal washer on the
'93 Hardbody that I drove for 20 year's.

So far I haven't seen a need to change the copper
washer on the 2013 yet.

Let me know how you got the old washer off. I'm
thinking that any scratch's made removeing the old
washer might cause it to leak.

Find something to do outside. I'm ready to start
putting the Dump Cart back together.

Find something to Paint outside, use Rustoleum Stop's
Rust Paint and the Red Primer if it needs it. Get one
of those Trigger Gun's for the small spray can's.
WalMart has them for about 2$'s. Get the Cheaper Black
One's, They work better than the more expensive
Red/Black one's.

Get a DeWalt Worksite Charger radio like the DC012,
DCR015, etc etc, They come in real handy too when the
power goes out. They are cheaper on Amazon and/or
EBay.
Don't get the California Model unless you live in
California.

The DeWalt Radio's a made tough,, but don't leave them
out in the Rain,, and use a Surge Surpressor between
Radio and Electrical Socket to prevent damage from
Power Surge's.

Regards,

Barney,

What has happened is that Nissan, in their infinite wisdom, has changed part numbers for a dumb little washer.  I have been to Nissan parts, Amazon, and eBay.  eBay is the one that gave me the issue.  I have checked in 3 places and it seems the part number I got is an old one.

I found 20 of the crush washers for $4.99, free shipping.

Appears license plate light lenses have taken a beating, got 2 of those on order.

I am collecting all my stuff to change fluids, etc.  Wish me luck.

When this virus crap is over, headed to mountains of North Carolina.

Jim,

Sound's Good. If you don't use a Nissan Oil filter and
the engine start's to make any unusual Noise like
tapping, knocking, or Rattleing, SHUT the engine off
right then and go get a Geniune Nissan Oil Filter.

I alway's try to fill the New Filter with as much oil
that will hold but not run out when the Filter is
turned horizontal. I gave up on trying to reach in
through the small access hole or trying to reach in
from the Right wheel over the Plastic Shield. Now I
just remove the Front Valance and the Bottom Plastic
Shield. It is a whole lot easier for me, and I can
visually inspect the surrounding area.

If you change out the Rear Axle Oil, 1st Wipe the area
clean around the Axle Air Vent, then remove the Air
Vent on top of the axle, clean it out with diesel fuel
and blow it out with the air compressor that you got
from Harbor Freight. Put the Air Vent back in, Then
make sure that you can remove the Fill Plug, then
remove the Drain Plug.

It'll be a whole lot of fun,
Good Luck,
