#2382 of 2771 Re: 2008 4x2 S Pathfinder Problems [dtbaj]
Jan 21, 2008 (10:25 am)
I have been getting the same problem with rough up and down shifting between 35 to 40 mph. The dealer says there is no bulletin out yet, but after showing him 12 posts on the computer from various areas of the country and calling nissan they say a fix is coming but they have to make sure it will work. They do admit to the problem and are working on it. When is my question, it is very annoying and I'm also not a happy camper. Keep on posting.

On a 2001 Pathfinder with the 3.5 what is the service interval with the timing chain?
#2384 of 2771 Final Drive from somewhere besides the dealer?
Jan 23, 2008 (5:23 pm)
I have a 98 4wd Pathfinder SE. It makes a loud clunking after coming to a stop and needs a new final drive (the term for the rear differential on the P-finder I understand). Dealer says the gears are worn out and wants $3100 to replace it ($1300 for the entire final drive).
I was looking to get a remanufactured final drive - Jasper Inc. doesn't have any but 4x4 parts does: (http://www.4x4parts.com/public_html/shop/index.php3?page=shop/browse&category_i- d=ccf6e8ad62e6ee964eaf951a3e82ccdb&ps_session=703035c25c2e3ae3780cb472e8dfc2c0)
I'm not sure this is the same as the stock final drive. Does anyone know if this is the correct part to fix the final drive???
Thanks for any help!

Tom, what do mean by "service interval"? The timing chain requires no normal maintainence.

I've never heard of the term "final drive", but these would be wild prices for rebuilding a rear differential on a Pathfinder.

I mean when do you replace them, I know belts generally last 60k.

shark715 - thanks for the reply. I think these prices are way out of hand.
After more investigating, I think the final drive on a PF includes the differential and assembly (meaning ring and pinions, and bearings). I may be a bit confused still.
Looks like I can get the labor done for about $500 at a good shop (vs. $2000 at the f-in dealer!!! (Brown's nissan, Arlington, VA ) and I'll probably go with a used final drive to save another $500 or so on the part. With my fingers crossed.
#2389 of 2771 Clock in 2001 LE
Jan 25, 2008 (12:12 pm)
I have a 2001 LE and the digital clock goes off sometimes and comes back with no obvious reasons. Its been off most of the time these days. I have read some posts where they said the clock needs replaced and possibly look at junkyards to save some money. I wanted to hear from anyone who actually got it changed at a dealer or did it themselves so I know how much time and money I need to spend.
Thanks in advance for the help.

By the way I found these pictures when I did a google to figure out how to pull the vents/clock. There was another post with a link but that link now requires $4.99 for the instructions. Thought some of you might find this useful.
#2391 of 2771 `01 stalling
Jan 26, 2008 (3:57 pm)
I bought a 2001 PF LE with 100,000K miles on it. At times it will start and stall. Sometimes I have to re-start it 5 or 6 times. This happens both cold & hot.
When it finally keeps running, it runs fine. Any ideas?
