I thought it would be great to start a topic on common issues with the nissan hardbody truck. I just bought a 1994 hardbody on ebay and would like to know what are the common problems people have and things people should be aware of.

one problem is the MAF sensor going bad . Next is the timing chain tesioner going bad because it uses oil pressure instesd of a spring for tension on the chain. The port for the oil going to the tensioner is very small and can clog easy if you do not keep up with good oil changes. I learned that the hard way. but overall it in my opinion one of the toughest and best built trucks ever made mine has over 250,000 miles and works great.
