In the maintenance history of my 2005 pathfinder, they replaced the impeller shaft in the 4wd system. Not sure what the failure mode is, but perhaps worth a check?Ride2Live wrote:I pulled the truck back out again today to see if this issue magically cleared up.
It's still there I pulled out on the road put it in 4wd it engaged. Drove it 50 ft. then stopped put it in park switched to 4LO put it in drive and got that audible sound again, a 4wd light came on and the lcd goes blank. Put it in park, shut it off, wait 10 sec. Start it back up and everything clears. The truck goes back into 2wd and is able to move again.
I will say that the PF is a great truck except for the reliability issues so far which are a bad fuel (P0463) sending unit, emissions (P0455) valve, and now something with the drive train.
I have taken meticulous care of this truck only putting the best of everything in it during maintenance intervals.
It is still covered under warranty and will be going in early next week.
Thanks man, WOW I feel like a dumb @$$ now. It has no problem going into 4LO when properly engaged . I guess I should of stopped and started a little slower, maybe read the manual again!cbsmith wrote:The transmission should be in Neutral to shift into 4LO, not Park. Not sure if that is part fo your problem or not.
Vibration was from a bad u-joint in the rear driveshaft. I am out of town this week so my wife took the truck in yesterday. I called and spoke with the service manager prior to the appt.trance34 wrote:It's the driveshaft/propeller shaft. Mine did this and it is covered under the drivetrain warranty. Save yourself the time and just take it in.
Glad to see they hooked you up. I have already replaced a few u-joints on my truck and also the sending unit...now I have the p0455 code lol. Just curious did they put that kit in according to the bulletin or did they just replace the solenoid vent valve?Ride2Live wrote:
Nissan picked up the tab, they replaced the U-joint, fuel sending unit, and fixed the Po455 Evap code by installing the valve kit mod.
It was good to see Nissan stand by their product.
