The contact owns a 2005 Nissan Frontier. While driving approximately 45 mph, an abnormal noise was heard emerging from underneath the vehicle. The noise went away when the accelerator pedal was not depressed. The contact also stated that the failure occurred five other times within a two week period. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who determined that the radiator fluid was leaking into the transmission. The transmission, radiator, and the transmission module needed replacement. The vehicle was not taken to a dealer for diagnostic testing. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 131,000.
