Hey guys I'm new here and not sure if this is where I'd post an introduction thread IF you guys need one at all.
Names John I'm 21, been driving a 1993 Maxima GXE for two years and belonged to Maxima.org for those two years prior to getting pushed away by ignorance. I'm fairly good with cars and have done all of the work on my Max on my own along with the gfs dads help (30 year retired mechanic)
Picked up a black 1994 Pathfinder SE-V6 from work (I work at JY) guy was junking it cuz alternator was "no good". I checked why the car didnt start without a jump and appearently the belts arent being driven at all, the crank pulley is OFF the engine just kinda hanging.
Its got 89k miles on it, heated leather, sunroof, appearantly sonar suspension, I guess this is considered loaded right?
When battery is jumped, it starts up like a dream and idles nice and smooth along with smooth quick reving. I havent left it on for more than 5 minutes as the belts arent turning and I'm afraid of letting it heat up.
First thing before driving car:
Gonna check if the nut/bolt that holds crank pulley simply was loose and came off..if so will proceed with following new as it looks a lot easier on the pathy than it was on my max and on the gfs, yes she's got an 89 max
-all new drive belts
-full tune up
Here's a few pics of my new pathy
