So the car is now back at the dealership. I got about 1/2 way there & lost all power, so I had it towed in. When I got there the tech pulled codses & found P0300 - random misfire. He thinks that because the PVC hose broke. that allowed raw fuel into the exhaust & has caused the cats to fail, blockin...

It would be great if it's the ecm relay as that has not been replaced under waranty. I thought it may be fuel related because it happened about 12 miles after I filled up. The car has been at the dealer since Monday. They found a PCV hose was leaking, but keep getting the wrong replacement hose. Hop...

bad fuel

I got a tank full of bad fuel in my 06 path & I think the cats have failed. The check engine light is on - I haven't pulled codes yet, but intermittantly it looses all power.
I live in an area that has no smog checks so can I gut the cats & hopefully regain performance ?

I've towed east on I90 from Seattle to Moses Lake & Lake Chellan many times in the summer with out any problems. My average towing speed is about 65. I'm a li...

Go with Weathertech. I have the carpet lined rubber ones front, middle & a full size one behind the 2nd row seat. They are great. Even the grand kids don't hurt them. To clean them just take them out & hose them off. The only complaint I have is that the drivers side one doesn't stay fastened to the...

Licence plate light

Can any one tell me how to replace the licence plate light bulbs ? Does the chrome trim come off or is there some other way to get to the bulbs ?

I just towed a 4x8 UHaul from Oakland to Seattle in the rain & got 15.6 mpg running about 65 mph. I guess the trailer loaded weighed about 2000 #. No problems towing it.

My passenger seat squeaked when ever anyone was riding in it. It turned out to be rubbing where the seat mounts to the floor. I installed nylon flat wahers between the mount & the floor - no more squeak. I also had a squeak from the inner panel on the right front door. Removed the panel, put a strip...

That sounds like alot of BS. I would have them put the tires from the other Pathfinder on & take you for a test ride. In 4hi, there can be issues with drive lines binding & not shifting out of 4hi, but turning left / right to get it to shift is odd. AWD / 4wd should have enough play to shift in & ou...

Wow. I find it amaising that so many Pathfinder owners have so many problems. My 06 LE now has 82k on it & I run the wheels off it - a 65 mile round trip commute, towing a boat & many long distance trips. So far ( knock on wood ) the only problems have been a broken center console latch, the covers ...

Being in the japanese auto repair business & owning an 06 Pathfinder LE, maybe I can shed some light on this concern. When the pathfinder is in 4h or 4l, it is as though all 4 wheels are locked together & turning at the same speed. When you veer from a straight path - turning right or left in forwar...
