I had the same problem with my 2001 Pathfinder. I went to Nissan and bought a blower motor resistor (aka Fan control Amplifier) for about $45. You need a screwdriver and about 20 minutes from start to finish. My resistor was below the glove box underneath the dash (not behind it as some posts have mentioned - but it may vary from vehicle to vehicle). Its a plug about 2 inches wide by 1/3 inch thick with 2 scews on either side with wires running into the back. Do some google searching for "fan control amplifier" and you'll see diagrams on location and what to look for. Hope this helps.

Larry, just curious, what did the trans shop have to say about your truck?
#8123 of 8191 2008 transmission torque converter concerns
Feb 10, 2008 (11:27 am)
I am considering the purchase of the 2008 Pathfinder but have read numerous posts related to hard transmission shifting at around 40 mph. Some owners expressed concerns with the transmission torque converter , in stating their dealer's had no know fixes.
Does anyone have more information on this issue ?

The drop resulted in the way manufacturers determine horsepower. I asked about this with my uncle at nissan corporate.

I don't believe that's correct. There has been no changes to the way SAE certifies and measures horsepower ratings for many years. I'm wondering if this has something to do with the class action lawsuit against one of the manufacturers regarding horsepower ratings, and if perhaps certain manufacturers on certain engines have gone to more conservative ratings due to avoid potential litigation. Also, are we sure that something wasn't actually changed on the engine, such as minor changes to the camshaft or engine chip, possibly for reliability purposes or so that the engine creates more low end torque? Was there a simultaneous change in the torque rating, too?

I was just wondering if anyone knew of any manufacturers that may good chipsets and engine tuning upgrades for pathfinders. I have a 2001 SE

#8129 of 8191 Gas smell on '97 Pathfinder
Feb 25, 2008 (8:04 am)
Hello. I haven't posted in a while but I'm glad to see this site is still up.
I have a little problem. When my Pathfinder is running or is shut off, I can really smell gas. There are no leaks. In fact I had one repaired because Nissan stopped
manufacturing the one line I needed. The smell is on the driver's side of the vehicle. It's like the odor from fuel comsumption is being pushed out somewhere and sometimes into the cabin.
Thanks for your help guys.
#8130 of 8191 recommended tire pressure
Mar 19, 2008 (3:26 pm)
I have a 2001 Pathfinder & the recommended cold pressure is 26 psi. I seem to remember in 2002 they raised the recommended pressure... this was around the time of the whole Firestone/Ford Explorer blowouts. Anyway, I'm trying to find the Nissan recommended cold tire pressure found on the placard for 2002-2005 Pathfinders. This should be an easy one. Anyone?
