Customer Question
While driving my 2007...

While driving my 2007 Nissan frontier the engine died. The indicator panel flashed "slip". I was able to restart the engine and drive to a safe location. What might the problem be and is it safe to drive it to a mechanic or should I have it towed?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

270,000 miles; automatic transmission

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Frontier yourself? What have you tried so far?

Not fixing it myself

What Customers are Saying:

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!
