About Nissan Titan
Breaking the stereotype of the Japanese make small trucks and the American make big trucks, Nissan Titan has been built by the outstanding Japanese multinational automobile manufactured Nissan Motor Company Ltd since September 21, 2003, as a full-size pickup truck. Originally introduced to compete against the Toyota Tundra, Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Titan is very similar to those domestic full-size pickup trucks. Titan in its name derives from the Titans of Greek mythology, it even won the five-star rating from the National Highway for Traffic Safety Administration. Now, it is in its second generation.
The first-generation Nissan Titan was produced from September 21, 2003, to 2015 based on the Nissan F-Alpha platform. It went on sale on December 1, 2003, as a 2004 model and was offered in two body styles, 2-door truck and 4-door truck. Titan originally came in four trim levels: S, SV, Pro-4x, SL (SE and LE were replaced by it). During this generation, Nissan Titan was powered by a 5.6 L V6 rated at 305-317 horsepower and 385 lb-ft of torque and this engine sent power through a 5-speed automatic transmission to rear wheels or four wheels. The current Titan was unveiled at the 2015 North American International Auto Show as a rebadged version of the Dodge Ram. It offers extended-cab (King Cab) and crew-cab styles and gets trim levels carried over from the previous generation. Now, Titan still gets power from the 5.6 L V8 and this engine is mounted to a 5-speed automatic transmission.

Once the coolant starts to leak and the engine stays at a high operation temperature, its performance will also reduce dramatically so that it may misfire, stall and even suffer from starting issues.
