Re: New Titan Owner 2007 SE

I put 50 miles on it today doing the Christmas thing going from inlaws, outlaws and everyone elses house. I love driving this truck, looks like my mpg is about like everyone elses, 10ish but in all honesty my old Dodge wasn't getting much better and it was weaker'n a day old kitten. I have a 1996 Tacoma if I need to save on fuel.

Re: New Titan Owner 2007 SE

I am going to round up some Royal Purple for the diff's tomorrow and I am going to do the rear diff vent mod while I'm changing the fluids.


Got another question for you guys, from reading around the board I see some say that going to the dealer and having a full trans flush is recommended and others say that the at home drain and refill is the way to fly, what do you guys recommend?


Thanks for helping us newbies

Re: New Titan Owner 2007 SE

Just do a spill and fill. Do not flush. Make sure the fluid you use is matic J rated.

The parking brake is just for show on the T. Even new shoes can't hold the truck on a slippery hill. Previous poster was right. The end up breaking apart and rattling around in the drum. Very annoying on bumpy roads with windows down.

The sending units did have a recall.

If your changing your rear diff. Also check the rear shackles. They are known for breaking and shooting leafs through the bed (upgraded in '08). If replacement is necessary check out Dirt King Fabrications for some beefy upgrades.

Other than that you've got yourself an awesome rig. Welcome to TT and enjoy modding out your T.

Funny, i was in your exact shoes looking at a Tacoma too. Up here in Canada, to buy the same year truck, with slightly less options, and of coarse less power......a Tacoma cost an "extra" $5000! It was hard to justify

I picked up an 06 Titan SE with only 60k on it and a bunch of extra's for 13K, just last week, loving it, just like you seem to be!

Now I am going to try to find someone in TN who wants some nice 20" chrome wheels with new Goodyears with 130 miles on them. I am going to try and trade to some 18" factorys with new tires, don't think that 17" wheels fit the '07's?
17's should fit. If they're factory. They didn't upgrade to bigger brakes until '08. I'd still stick with the 18's though incase you ever decide to do the '08 brake upgrade.

Re: New Titan Owner 2007 SE

Sharkey, not that far away from you in k-town, the truck came from Ray Varner Ford and originally from Victory Nissan.


Deetz, that is exactly what I was finding. I found an '03 2WD Taco, 144,000 miles 2.7L 4cyl auto for $11k and every other 05+ Taco that was 4wd was $20k+. We stopped at this dealer last on the way home and I got this truck with a 4yr 48K miles warranty for $16k out the door.


Thanks again misfit.

Re: New Titan Owner 2007 SE

Found some factory aluminum 18" at a small shop here in town and traded out whee for wheel and for new rubber.


The steel 20's were crazy heavy, I bet 1 of them was near the weight of both factory wheels.

Re: New Titan Owner 2007 SE

After having my new wheels and tires installed the TPMS light is on and stays on, also when I put the truck in reverse a snsor goes off inside the cab creating a loud whistling sound.


Any help is appreciated, thanks

Re: New Titan Owner 2007 SE

Do you have the proper tpms sensors mounted in those new wheels?

Re: New Titan Owner 2007 SE

Deetz, that I don't know. I thought the guys at the tire shop set everything up correctly but I know sometimes that is not the case. That is not as troubleing as the screaming sound from the backup sensors. I can push the switch to disable the sonars and the sound quits, reactivate it and it comes back like I am fixing to hit something. It just started this this morning actually.



After doing some searching mine is doing something similar to this: Rear sonar warm blooded


The temp has not gotten above 27 degrees here today and the reverse sonar has went insane in the membrane. I can wipe the sensors off with a clean soft rag and they work correctly in a few minutes they go back to sounding off as is something is behind my truck.
