#1725 of 8191 SUPERCHARGER for 3.3L 170-hp engine
Mar 10, 2001 (11:40 pm)
I spoke to a sales manager yesterday at a Nissan dealership, and we were talking about the upcoming 2002 Xterra that will have a 210-hp supercharged engine. Currently the Xterra uses the same 170-hp engine as the 99.5-2000 Pathfinders. He said the only difference between the 210-hp engine and the current 170-hp engine is the addition of the supercharger. He then told me that Nissan will begin selling the supercharger as an add-on for the 3.3L 170-hp engine, which then could supposedly be added to the 3.3L Pathfinder.
Anyone else hear of this or can confirm this?

#1731 of 8191 Premium or not
Mar 11, 2001 (12:55 am)
I read this article that maybe worth sharing.. for me if the engine was designed for premium gas to run its best, that is what I will follow. The sensor will adjust the engine if regular gas is used to run less efficiently and I don't want that to happen to my engine.
"Vehicles with high-performance, high-compression engines do need premium fuel to run their best. Fortunately, most cars on the road today that were built to consume higher octane gasoline come equipped with electronic knock sensors. Pump in regular and the knock sensors tell the engine management system to run a little less efficiently, protecting it from the ill effects of knocking, but with a consequent minor loss of power"
I think I messed up and the message was posted twice.. hope I was successful deleting, if not I am sorry it was not intentional.
#1732 of 8191 Cruise Control Light
Mar 11, 2001 (6:37 am)
This has happened twice on my 2001 SE 4WD:
The CRUISE light is illuminated right after I start the engine (The SET light stays off). Cruise should stay off until selected, right? I can extinguish the CRUISE light by pressing the CRUISE ON/OFF switch. This problem is intermittent so the dealer is not offering much help so far. Any ideas or similar experiences?
#1733 of 8191 Moldings for lower door panels
Mar 11, 2001 (1:32 pm)
Does anybody know if you can get the moldings that are on the lower door panels of an Infiniti QX4 for the Pathfinder. It's a great solution for door dings and it would fit perfectly, even it it had to be painted to match.

Has anyone replaced the antenna on the 2001 PF with the power antenna? Does it mount easily? Does the radio have the connections already set for power and radio on/off. Any information would be appreciated as on my last Pathfinder, when the carwash removed the antenna, they scratched the paint. On my new one, I remove it first but I'd rather have a power antenna.
