Re: 2017 Nissan Titan SV Engine failure !!!!!

Update.... Very sorry for no update for the cause of the noise in the old short block. I've been very busy then on holidays. I called dealership this last thursday that just passed and was told tech was very busy and hopefully get some time soon to find cause of noise. My truck has been excellent and noise free since I have got it back (1900 km holidays) As soon as I get time I'll stop in at dealership hopefully late this week. I will post findings once I know ...I wont forget lol !!

Re: 2017 Nissan Titan SV Engine failure !!!!!

Great to hear all is well once again but find it VERY odd nobody tore down the old engine to discover the cause. I’d think Nissan would want the block packed and shipped back for the engineers to go over it.

Re: 2017 Nissan Titan SV Engine failure !!!!!

Clint you are correct Nissan Canada does want the engine back. It is my understanding that the dealership is going to take the engine apart just because myself the local service manger and the tech that did the work want to know the cause. Instruction from Nissan Canada tech department were to change short block based on the info reported. The dealership at any auto car maker is just allowed to do what it is being told to them from warranty dept I assume because they are not paying for the warranty work the auto maker is. I do know my dealership was charged a core charge for this short block. I do agree that it should have been taken apart first because if Nissan Canada tech was wrong in ordering the short block to be changed just based on info reported. In my case the Tech dept was correct. I am very confident my truck is not the only out there with this issue and the Tech dept has seen issue before and made decision based on knowledge ..... ( I hope lol)

Re: 2017 Nissan Titan SV Engine failure !!!!!

I’d think Nissan corporate wants to tear it down themselves. Imagine if they didn’t refund the core charge.

Re: 2017 Nissan Titan SV Engine failure !!!!!

Nissan Canada doesn't give a rats *** about the customer and is just wanting the engine back to CYA! If there is no evidence then there can be no recall!
Yes a lot bitter about Nissan and there tactics!

Manufacturers almost always want engines & transmissions back when they fail, especially on a newer product. That motor is going to get packed in a crate & sent back to the motor factory for a detailed inspection.

I am a 20 year transmission tech so I'm decent with automotive noises. The dealer got there lead tech to checked it over and confirmed it to be a internal engine issue. He believes it to be a wrist pin on cylinder 5 or 7. The dealer is presently trying to get Nissan Canada to send a complete long block but so far Nissan Canada just wanted to send a short block . So I assume dealer will continue to fight on my behalf. The long block is on backorder of coarse. Dealer as been awesome with me so far in this very Shi**y situation hopefully it get resolved sooner than later !!! Apparently there is also few more truck in Ontario sitting at dealership with engine failures waiting on engines. Nissan Canada so I'm told has identified the issue but at this point I'm not sure if they have a solution. I assume it is a certain batch of engines but can't confirm that. Tomorrow will be 1 week without my truck dealership rented me a truck but it's a Dodge !!!! Anybody else have info on this topic ??? If so please let me know thxs
Having the same issue. Engine clacking started around 25-30k... I'm at 70k now. They said it's a piston rubbing issue (THAT'S COMMON!!). After reading this thread I'm pushing for a long block engine as well.

Re: 2017 Nissan Titan SV Engine failure !!!!!

Yes, I noticed an engine noise a few weeks ago (feb 2019) on my 2017 titan 5.6 motor. I only have 15000 km on this truck. I took it to the dealer and indicated that I thought there is a serious problem in the lower end. Today Apr 11/2019 they confirmed there was a serious defect in the number 7 cylinder and that it needed repairs. I was told by the dealer that it needed a short block. I am not happy with this solution. The dealer tells me that Nissan Canada is only authorizing a short block fix. I asked the dealer what other option might me available but told me there was none. I was looking for a buy back, long block and a warranty reset. I am about to raise my case with Nissan Canada but have little faith.

Re: 2017 Nissan Titan SV Engine failure !!!!!

Welcome to the club. This is now becoming a wide spread issue just like the front and rear axles on the first generation Titan.

Knock, Knock, Knock...

Once again Nissan effed up something that could be good. The First Gen Titan engine had zero issues, it's just that all the parts around the engine were inferior.

sorry 686, i was just looking through the site and found that I hadn't seen your post from last July, no my truck at the time of the posting was a 2015 titan pro4x and it went through rear differentials (6 to be exact), when they put the 6th one in in Sept of last year we cut our losses and traded it off. We got a 2018 titan SL midnight on Oct 1st of last year and the engine was changed in Mar of this year due to piston slap on #7 cylinder.
my opinion and it's my opinion only, Nissan thinks that ALL customers are of the kind that if it doesn't start they take it to the dealer for a tech to change parts!
They place NO value on the customer who for various reasons DO have experience with vehicles and expect a level of quality that comes with buying a new vehicle.
When I took the midnight in for it's first oil change and asked to check out the knock i explained it to the service guy how to hear it, I was told it was the fuel pump and they did an update on the computer and they could not replicate the knock.
I replicated the knock the next week getting breakfast at the MacDonald's drivethru! - very complicated this listening for the noise!
after it got bad enough to hear it standing beside the truck I took it back and again was told it was the fuel pump, I asked " how come it's tied to engine RPM then?"
I was told "Bring it in and we will look at it again!"
if you are NOT a Nissan tech you know nothing and am humoured, I know more than my service writer , I know this for sure.
I hope Nissan fixes this problem soon.

Re: 2017 Nissan Titan SV Engine failure !!!!!

As an owner of a "knocking" Titan and having read through all the posts in this thread it shows that Nissan Canada doesn't have a clue what it's doing. Some owners have received long block engines while others have received short block engines.

Me, I'm waiting to hear from my service manager (once he hears from Nissan Canada) what action is to be taken in my case - its been 5 weeks now

Anyone know which one 7 is if you looking at it from the front of the truck?

Don’t quote me on any of this as I do t know the exact specifics. BUT, I did read as I was studying in which truck to buy that early direct injection Ford designs tended to gum up the valve directly below some sort of oil return line or something like that. Some guys started putting the oil catch can on to prevent it. It wasn’t a problem till pretty high miles though. Wonder if this cylinder is located in a similar way.

Re: 2017 Nissan Titan SV Engine failure !!!!!

I would hazard a guess that the odd cylinders are on the driver side and the evens are on the passenger side
