#2295 of 2763 Power Steering
Jul 06, 2007 (11:14 am)
I have a 2004 Pathfinder SE which has had an intermittent problem with squealing belts. The issue started approx 2 years and I have had the car serviced 4 different times for this particular problem. The problem was initially diagnosed as a CS belt/pulley problem. At first the belts were reset, then replaced, then the pulley was cleaned and reset. After each adjustment the noise would stop for a variable period of time and then recur. The NIssan service center performed these services for free as the problem was first diagnosed while the car was under warranty.
Now the Nissan service center says the squealing is from a broken power steering pump and that it is not the same problem as all of the previous squealing. They further state that it will not be covered by the warranty since this was not the problem initially and the car is out of the warranty period.
My question is: is it possible that this was the underlying problem initially? Is it reasonable to think that a similair squeal recurring over the course of 2 years is the same issue or is this two distinct problems? How would I differentiate? And how do I know that the fuel pump was even checked during any of these other visits.

Haven't seen you post anything more on Bose Clarion CD changer issue. How did it get resolved? I have the same problem. Did you make a deal with Nissan not to post any more comments about this issue if they took care of you?

Hi, i have a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder SE has 4wd and my right headlight stays on sometimes too, if you look under the hood and see the fuses for headlamp, remove them and replace them, i had to do that, could be a bad connection or fuse. Or just take the fuses out for headlamp only and put them back in about 15 mins later. ive had to do that too. hope this helps.

I just purchased a Nissan Pathfinder 2001 LE yesterday, and my bose 6 disc cd changer isn't working. It seems that I am having the same problem that you are having. Has anyone figured out a way to fix it?
#2300 of 2763 98 Pathfinder Cooling Fan Removal
Aug 06, 2007 (2:49 am)
Hi all. I'm currently attempting to access and replace the timing belt in my 98 PF. However, to do so you must remove the fan/pulley from the water pump. I've removed the cooling fan (the plastic part)from the shaft and removed the 4 nuts that feed forward from the water pump, but I cannot see how to remove the pulley/fan shaft. I cannot use a pulley puller because the fan shaft is in the way. Has anyone done this before?

This happen to my 2001 LE also, first time is under warranty, but second time costs me $285 bucks to get it fix. I found the unit on Ebay also selling around $250 bucks if you can install it. I had the technician installed pretty esay.
#2302 of 2763 2001 nissan pathfinder mass air flow sensor
Aug 15, 2007 (2:25 pm)
Hi everybody ! I have a 2001 Pathfinder and some while ago the car started to loose power sometimes at any speed. Then in the mornings when I start the car the engine sputters and sometimes dies - then I start it again and try to keep 2-3k but cannot keep it constant. As soon as the car warms up it works almost fine - except sometimes it looses power (at any speeds) - not very often though - well, I guesss more and more lately. I took the car to my mechanic - he checked it out but he wasn't sure - he was suspecting though the mass air flow sensor - so he sent me to somebody else who had a better OBD reader (although my check engine light is not on) so he confirmed that the mass air flow sensor needs to be replaced. Because the part supposedly is pretty expensive I would try to buy it online but I had a hard time finding a place that has them so any ideas would be welcomed.
#2304 of 2763 solution to my whirring noise
Sep 03, 2007 (9:26 am)
Well after the dealer ripped me off for for $113, I saw the the noise was caused by loose heat shield. Parts of it had rusted and all the dealer did was put two $1 clamps on them to tighten them and problem solved.
But, of course did not check if all the heat shields were tight, so got a 4 clamps from home depot, cleaned up the rust and put the clamps on the other parts of the heat shields to prevent future issues.
