Re: Timing Chain/Guides - Preventative or Wait for Symptoms?

Unless it's making the "whine" noise, I'd let it go.

Look at what's on the inside of the gas filler cover. If it says that premium is recommended for maximum performance, than you can use 87 octane. If it say premium fuel is "required," then use premium fuel. That said, in my experience, VQ and VK engines tend to run a little smoother on premium.

Re: V8 or V6.... That is the question????

I guess that's all fine if one is going to drag race their Pathfinder, but how many Pathfinder owners need to do 13.2 in the quarter-mile?

I can't see why an automotive upholsterer wouldn't be able to make a carpet for the back of your Pathy?

Re: Does the V8 have any known weaknesses?

The only thing I've come upon is that Nissan's V6 & V8 models tend to leak at the oil filter due to sludge build up from lack of oil service intervals. There's a rubber o-ring behind the oil filter housing that eventually leaks and will need to be replaced. I had to do it on mine is why I found out...

Re: Intake Manifold Power Valve noise ????

I’m experiencing a loud annoying noise when accelerating. It resembles spark knock and or a heat shield rattling. If I accelerate slowly or romp on the gas it may not occur. If I let off the gas it stops. One mechanic was able to mimic the noise by holding the break and revving the engine to approx...

There's definitely plastic at the firewall/heater core area also, but I couldn't find it on Nissanpartsdeal.com nor have I tried hard enough to find the part number for it. I'll look harder once spring rolls around.
The V8 part is 92408-ZS20A. It's under "body electrical-heater piping."

Re: Another V8 Brake Upgrade Complete

I find the EBC yellow stuff pads and GD rotors (slotted/dimpled) to be a little too aggressive. If I were to do it again, I would go with the EBS green stuff pads and their RK rotors. Since you already have the larger brakes, you're good on the calipers. You could try just the pads, but it's best to...

Re: Any shocks other than Bilstein 4600 GTG with Moog springs?

I have the Bilstein 4600 on the rear of my 2006 and KYB Gas-a-just on my 2008; I really don't notice any difference between them.

Re: Couple of thoughts on the Yoko Geolandar AT G015

They might be; I'm just going by what CR lists. "T" rated is up to 118 MPH and "H" rated is up to 130 MPH. I think your good in either case! If not, don't try going that fast in Farmville; they arrested my former boss because he argued with them after they pulled him over for the front window tint o...

Re: Any shocks other than Bilstein 4600 GTG with Moog springs?

The only other rear shock I would consider, personally, would be the KYB Gas-a-just shocks, which are an upgrade over the "factory stock-similar" KYB Excel-G shocks. Both are a monotube design shock absorber. I've always been happy with the factory-installed, front struts, which are also very simila...

Re: Any good alternative to the Moog Springs?

As you know well, the percentage of V8 Pathfinders to the number of R51 Pathfinders, overall, is somewhat small. We probably get a lot more feedback at TheNissanPath than just about any other forum. While we know that the Moog 81119 rear coil spring is superior to the factory part, adds a little rid...

Re: Need brighter lights

That sounds like a good plan! Outside of spending a lot of money for HID conversions, that'll be your best option. Neither the R51 05-07 nor the 08-12 headlamps are very good and, at best, are "adequate." The stock lighting on my 03 Frontier lights the road so much better than my Pathfinder.
