When you try and start with the key is the starter engaging at all to try and start the engine or are any noises heard from the engine area at all?

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!

How much does it cost to get answers? Have 2004 Nissan
Okay. Have 2004 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab. 3.3L (I think) gasoline engine. Has always run great. 175,000 miles. Last week wife calls after*****to work and says oil light blinked when she came to stops, but never came on steady. I go to the parking garage at her work and find the oil about 2 quarts low and valves clattering like I've never heard from this engine before. Put in 2 quarts, engine quietens down and let her drive home. Check oil the next day and it's still topped off. Today I'm outside as she dives in from work and I here more chatter from the engine. Tis is 7 days and only about 190 miles since I topped off the oil level. It is 1 and a half quarts low. I add oil and let it run in the garage to get up to temp and that's when I notice wet oil on the garage floor underneath the tailpipe. Had not noticed this before, but had not let it run in place like that. What might I be looking at when I take it to the shop? … read more
