BTW, they are going to want to charge you a diagnostic fee to check the oil leak. If they find the leak is something they worked on and should not be leaking that soon THEN they will cover the diag fees.

It sounds like you are being very emotional and dramatic. If you approach the situation all steamed up and demanding then you are more likely to be ignored. Being calm and rational gets you much further. Yelling sue sue sue! Shows an immaturity and will get people to ignore you in a hurry. Start leaving bad reviews on Yelp, Facebook and Dealer Rater. Make sure you tell the whole story too. It seems after all these posts we are still not getting both sides.
Thatís the entire issue. They refused any & all dealings with it & blatantly said they did not ďwantĒ to do anything with it.

On a better note, my dad called Nissan customer service a couple days ago (my bank account got hacked at the same time the timing chain went out & he let me use his credit card for repairs until I got my account sorted. So, he has a dog in this fight, too) and spoke with a different person than I did. He was told there is a 12 month/12k mile warranty on all Nissan parts & labor. He got in touch with the service manager & informed him what Nissan said & my truck is being fixed. I did get a call today & was told not all the parts were Nissan parts; and, that itís valve cover thatís leaking, but theyíre going to fix it all for free anyway. Honestly, I donít believe them. I had a 3rd party, independent shop confirm my suspicions. Why did my valve cover gasket suddenly start leaking after being at a Nissan shop? Why wasnít I made aware of this when the original repairs were done? Sounds extremely sketchy to me. I really feel like Iím being lied to so they can cover their tails. But, itís getting fixed & Iíll never go to the local dealership again.

They are still technically screws whether Nissan calls them bolts or not.

After working at Fastenal and selling all types of fasteners for 5+ years, the technical fastener discussion was the highlight of this thread for me.

No one mentioned tap bolts though...

This thread has now a very "out to get me" vibe...

After reading this thread, I think I need a "safe space".

I say, use some 4 inch self tapping wood screws to hold that cover on. And Gorilla Tape. And maybe a zip tie if you're feeling fancy.
