So today I started the truck(2012 titan crew cab sl I believe) it's the bf's, and I heard a huge thump and bang underneath. this truck is his baby. I had the oil changed a month ago so not that.I continued backing out of the driveway and heard it a few more times. It seemed to feel ok and shifted fine. i heard the thump again and it shook the truck. I'm not a mechanic but i know enough to be dangerous. it sounded like the trans but it isn't. i came home a few hrs later to find fluid puddles under the left front and rear wheels. I checked the fluids and everything seemed fine. I looked under it and found wet spots on the front and rear at either end of the drive shaft. Any suggestions? I spoke to him on Skype this am because he's overseas at the moment. If it's what I think it is Christmas is kinda screwed because he wont be home til a week before that.

Sounds to me like the emergency brake shoe(s) are sticking. Crummy design on the Titan, I never apply the e brake on mine. Not sure about the puddles you are describing, are they oily?

Thanks for the reply but that isn't the problem. It turned out to be what I thought. It's the rear differential ,transfer case..? Again I'm not a mechanic but not silly either lol. I had it towed to a transmission and drivetrain specialist and for some reason he said he doesn't want to say what he thinks caused it until he talks to Nissan. Idk wth that is all about but I will find out Monday I guess.

5/60 powertrain warranty. It might be covered.
