Re: New Sludge Question

According to the Nissan parts catalog, the part numbers are different for the valve covers for the 95 Pathfinder VG30E and a 2001 Frontier VG33E (I had to use Frontier because a 2001 Pathfinder has the VQ35DE engine). All are shown as discontinued by Nissan. You could try Car-part.com to look for a ...

Re: Where under the hood is the heater inlet pipe?

For my Xterra, I went with Dorman # 626598 outlet side hose @ $30 from Rockauto and the inlet side hose I got for $42 w/ spring clamps from Z1offroad.com, which has a bleeder: https://www.z1offroad.com/z1-products/z1-off-road/z1-frontier-pathfinder-xterra-vq40-billet-heater-hose-inlet-p-18561.html?l...

Re: what do folks think of this upgraded heater hose assembly?

It won't work on the V8 (#92408-ZS20A). It's only for the V6 R51 w/ rear HVAC. I'm not sure if that's the same as the one another member tried; he said the hoses on the bottom came up a little short. I also would have preferred that they use constant tension clamps like OE rather than worm gear clam...

Re: Thermostat Gasket

Permatex Copper Spray Gasket is a good option.

Re: Crappy Nissan battery.

With the overtime at the prison, the closest I get to going off-road is my driveway after the rain! Going back to batteries, I remember when I started working with Nissan, they used to sell fresh-packed batteries. We would get the Nissan batteries shipped to the dealer and then would purchase batter...

Re: Stmble on a slight hill

Yes, but isn't this everywhere? Let's take eyeglasses, for example. I purchased a set of reading glasses from Walgreen's last week. It seems well constructed, looks good and consists of a frame and lens for around $10. Meanwhile, if I were to get a set of just basic glasses from my Optometrist, I'd ...

Re: Engine Z24 cuts out ONLY when turning left, WD21 1989

I remember working on a 2001 Buick Park Ave. that would stall out on right turns per the customer and I verified. Turned out to be a bad ignition switch. Terminal 1 on the switch provided power to both the turn signal switch AND the ECM. There was some apparent resistance within the switch for termi...

Re: Crappy Nissan battery.

With the purchase of the '12 Xterra to replace my Pathy, I decided to go with a Diehard Platinum AGM battery from Advance Auto Parts. It was $209 at the time, which was earlier this year. It's made by Clarios, which bought out Johnson Controls, and has a 3-year replacement warranty. Compared to the ...

Re: 2008 Pathfinder w/275k miles

If you're going to replace the radiator, you might as well replace the heater pipes on the firewall before they break!

Re: Anyone here a member on clubfrontier.org?

Is anyone here an active member on the clubfrontier.org forums? I found a listing on their parts for sale forum for a set of wheels. I registered so I could contact the seller who is in the next town over from me, but members need to be registered for 10 days and have 10 posts before they can reply...

Re: 2008 Pathfinder w/275k miles

If it makes you feel any better, I have a 2008 SE 4x4 with 275,000 miles on it still going strong! Replaced timing chains at 148K, Moog quick struts and KYB Gas-a-just rear shocks at 250K. It's had its share of maintenance done, of course, and minor repairs over the years, but it keeps on going! I w...

Re: Reviews on the 2022 Pathfinder!

Biggest mistakes they did to the R52 was put a CVT transmission in it and not give it a name other than "Pathfinder!"

Re: TPMS sensor question

The R51 Pathfinders and D40 Frontiers all used 315-mhz TPMS sensors, so they will work, but they will have to be ID registered to the vehicle. This can be done a number of different ways. Easiest way would be to get a TPMS trigger tool, which runs about $15-$20 and a scan tool that can access the TP...

Re: Reviews on the 2022 Pathfinder!

I was at a Home Depot in Lynchburg, today, and saw my first one in person. I'm not sure I prefer the look over the R51, but it's definitely an approvement over the R52!

Re: Oil recommendations?

You can ask 20 different people and get 20 different answers when it comes to what's the best oil. Any API or ILSAC certified 5W30 motor oil will work just fine, conventional or synthetic. Nissan has changed their mileage intervals several times over the years, going from 3750 miles to 7500, back to...
