#2458 of 2771 2007 Nissan Pathfinder AC Drain
Apr 03, 2008 (3:56 pm)
I wanted to post my experience with my 2007 Nissan Pathfinder (Bought new in June 2007) that has the AC drain problem. I took it to a local Nissan dealer who initially told me that the drain problem was only with Titans and he had not heard of a problem with Pathfinders. They kept the car for a day and supposedly repaired the leak. They did not replace the front carpet, however, and after I complained, they offered to replace the carpet, which they did. Note that the pad under the carpet is micro-cellulose composition - there is NO WAY to get the water out of it. In our case the carpet smelled of mold/mildew. If you have this prooblem be sure and have the carper REPLACED.
Anyway, 2 months later and the same problem came back. I am planning on calling the dealer tommorrow to see what their response will be. My last NISSAN was the best car I ever had in 30 years of driving. I bought this one expecting even better quality. But after only 8,000 miles I have this. So far, its disappointing. I can get over it and like this vehicle again if the drain problem can be fixed.
#2459 of 2771 Mass Air Fow Sensor
Apr 04, 2008 (7:10 pm)
My 2001 Pathfinder has been "pinging" on and off and the shifting has been very "sloppy" for over a year but no codes then a month ago the SES light came on and it was a lean condition on the left side, as it turns out it was the mass air flow sensor, I replaced it and it had to be re-programmed ($80) now it runs great.
I bought my mass air flow sensor off of ebay for $160 shipped and that's less than 1/2 of the lowest price I could find online.

So, we both have the same problem about the same speeds. That 35 to 40 mph is very rough.
I have also noticed that my fuel economy is much worse than my 05. We recently took a 6 hour trip on major highways, no traffic, driving cruise control and the best we could get was 17.1 mpg.
So, the other day, I had a 1 hour highway drive, minimal traffic. Reset my fuel economy log, turned on cruise control, flipped to manual mode. The indicator showed 4th gear at 75mph. I shifted to 5th gear and drove for 45 miles. Fuel economy 21.9.
On the way home, drove same speed in cruise control in automatic mode 17.6 mpg.
There is definitely something up with this transmission.

That is very interesting.....I am going to try that approach and report back. I am also going to drive in maual mode and see if I get the same thump/shutter at or around 40mph as opposed being in automatic drive mode. I would try this yourself as well and see.
I too get about 17.3 mpg with a combo of city and highway travel. Geez we should have went with the V8 engine....

#2464 of 2771 Front struts on 2001 pathfinder
Apr 19, 2008 (8:53 pm)
I need to change the struts on my pathfinder, can anyone lend me some advice as to what tools I will need, what to expect, and anything I need to look for?

Just curious, how do you know when you need new struts in this truck? I have an '01 with 120k miles, and the struts have never been replaced.

I was looking at the front brakes, and noticed that one of the struts was covered in oil. I think it may have a blown seal. That it the reason I am thinking they need to be changed. I know that you cant change just one, and I have a basic knowledge of how the repair is done, I just needed some input specific to the Pathfinder to make certain that I have all the information I need to do this right the first time.

Anyone have input on replacing front struts on a 2001 pathfinder? I have never done this, and would love to hear from you guys about your experiences doing this.
