Had same thing happen to our 05, turns out it was the front drive shaft Ujoint on the front diff. It got progressively worse. Took it apart and it was all hollowed out. Bought part at nissan 45$ tech there put it in for me there on his own time for 25$, rides as smooth as silk now.

Exact same thing happened to our pathy, took it back to dealer, put it in the air ran it at different throttle positions and you could hear a low grumbling at certain RPM's but no tech could ever find anything loose or any holes anywhere. After about 2000 miles it has gotten better. Nobody can expla...

What does a ujoint going bad sound like?

Had tranny and rad replaced last month, started noticing this week when coming down to a stop I can hear something like clicking or tapping under the vehicle but stops when stopped, cant hear it under acceleration but there is a slight vibration at higher speeds. Is this a ujoint or something else? ...

I have just had this done by the dealer. 76k miles but it started giving us problems at 62k. Did a flush and fill and went away for awhile but came back and we drove it probably 8k miles shifting hard then the shuddering started at all speeds. Took it in, all they did was look in radiator and said y...

Got pathfinder back and wow what a difference! We had been driving it broke like this since 64k miles and it now has 76k on it. Shifting is as smooth as the new 2012 altima they gave us to drive while pathy was in the shop. Great experience through this whole thing, even asked for some oil plug crus...

80K miles and 84 months is the warranty extension.

Like to get one of those Aussie nissans up here in the states. Everything up here is lowest bidder wins the contract which equals junk in most cases.

Sorry to hear that. Mine is in the shop at present for the new tranny and rad, I am under 80k so nissan is paying for it. I most likely will not buy another nissan again after all the recalls and problems with these vehicles. It definitely leaves a bad taste in your mouth. From here on out, every ra...

What is the "shuddering" you mentioned? My 06 shudders randomly when I'm sitting at a light, in gear, with my foot on the brake. Now that is a different shudder that I have too and the dealer said it was normal for all Pathy's and Titans. To me it seems a bit rough though. I get that low idle rumbl...

FYI, Tranny contamination *update pg.2*

It has been steadily getting worse with shuddering at all speeds now and at 76k on the clock . I had the t...

Did you take it to the dealer? I took mine to the dealer for it doing the shuddering at 40mph and they told me it was a sensor that is on the transmission shifter that is about $500. Taking it on Jan 2. That sounds like what it could be, its like it cant get back into a lower gear once computer tel...
