Yeah there's a thread about you guys in the Tundra of Canada getting piston slap issues due to the engine startup in that super freezing weather of 0F and below. Not a cool thing at all :/ The thread is really about the thermal engine fan with electronic control. But a lot of Northern Canada people started chiming in about piston knock too.

I prefer not using remote start or drive-thrus, both hurt your MPG's a lot & you shouldn't let your vehicle idle more that a minute or so especially unattended.

I'm in WI and have the piston knock issue. It's not limited to Canada folks. Little less than 1000 miles to my oil change and then I will have it looked it.

This is going to be big problem for Nissan.

Re: What have you done for your 2nd Gen Titan lately

I assume you canít drive the truck anymore once piston slap starts. What does it sound like?

Re: What have you done for your 2nd Gen Titan lately

Yeah you can drive it. At least I'm driving mine. Over in the Engine forum on this site there are couple of videos posted where you can hear the knocking.

Re: What have you done for your 2nd Gen Titan lately

Gave BB a B-lated Anniversary hand wash. She took care of us on our over 2000 mile trip to Sebring FL to watch the 12hr IMSA race and the 1000 FIA WEC. Towed the travel trailer very nicely other than the 6.8 to 8.4 MPG :/ Even vacuumed out the inside and scrubbed up the WeatherTech floor mats.

Now it's time for a oil change and a tire rotation

Question of the day...

Are the WeatherTech floor mats worth it ?
How have the held up over time? Iím about to hit the buy button but Iím stuck between the huskies or those.

I'm in South Dakota and heard it on mine when it was cold out this winter. I was concerned but hadn't read the posts here about piston slapping. I'm going to mention it when I go in next week for rust on my step rails and bubbled up paint on my left, rear wheel. Add it to the list.

Everything weathertech makes is very nice but check out the Smartliners on Amazon, front and rear cost me $135 and fit beautifully.
