does anyone have any luck with replacing the MAF on a pathfinder with the one from a maxima? According to the link alot of people have but would hate to suggest it to a family memeber and have it not work and end up costing us more. 500 dollars for a pathfinder MAF and around 120 for a maxima one? Also it would have to pass Smog. why do cars have to be so......... UHHHH

"you probably spent over $150.00 on parts and research ,so now your $250.00 shy of taking it to a Nissan repair shop, I have been in some situations like you and many others ,some you win and some you loose . but when it comes to sensors or diagnostic equipment needed to resolve the real problem bite the bullet.
I once had a stalling and low power problem with my engine , after a full tune up and parts, it didnt cure it, Nissan found out it was a speed sensor ON THE TRANSMISSION OF ALL PLACES there you go

my 05 pathfinder heater cools down at idle? I checked the coolant level, it was about a pint low however I found that I have a pressure cap on my overflow reservoir and a basic cap on my radiator. Could not having a pressure cap on my radiator be causing my heater to cool down at idle?

could some one have mixed the caps ,I dont think so because they are different sizes, however if you didnt have a pressure cap on the radiator it would expand and blow something like a hose unless this cap is just sitting there and not tight and lets some of the pressure out, it has to go somewhere usually back into the overflow tank and that tank has no pressure in it. the heater only gets cool for 2 reasons,1 not enough water mix in the radiator ,,,,2 clogged heater core. better get the right caps and filler up but put a little stop leak like bars stop leak then fill the Radiator run it hot , let it cool ,add more water mix .

I have an 06 Pathy, that HAD the same problem,, you most likely have a one or two seals that are worn out on the drive shaft,, mine were replaced and 90% of the vibration is gone. You will not be leaking any fluid,, but if you got more that 40K miles, I would have it check,, the seals are cheap the labor is what is going to bite a bit.. Good luck

Hi, Just wondering when is the right time for a 2006 pathfinder tune up. Mine has a 79000 miles and has no problems. I bought it when it was about 77000 miles and doesn't know the previous owner's maintenance records. And, how much do they usually charge for it? thanks!

I'm pretty sure my '08 is a lemon. Nonetheless, wondering if anyone is having similar problems.
From day one, I noticed "quirky" problems that I wasn't sure were problems. Mostly a light would be on (4wd, or VDC)) Then, I had the issue with the "pause" at 30 mph which was fixed with a service bulletin posted here.
So, more odd things were happening, the red key light flashing for keyless ignition while I was driving, then the battery went dead within 10 minutes of turning off the car. (I parked, sat in car waiting to pick someone up, tried to start/dead).
So, the whole time the service guys are not listening to me, finally they took it in and they had it for 17 days!! It seemed like they fixed it, the receipt was sketchy as to what they actually did.
Now, I'm having same issues...battery dying for no reason, keyless entry and ignition working intermittently, 4wd light on when car is in 2wd, the outside temp starts at below zero and "rolls" up to the current temp, Once, the keyless ignition wouldnt work, I put the key in and the ignition still wouldn't turn over (car was parked on flat surface and wheels were straight) I finally got out of the car, locked it, re entered and the keyless ignition worked.
Several other things fixed within the first week...the back hatch didn't self rise on its own, the car could be turned off when in D, after 2 months, the stitching on my seat was completely coming off.
I've had 5 pathfinders before this one. Never.a.day.of.trouble. Now, this particular one has been the biggest POS and I may not buy another next year when my lease is up.
Anyone having these types of problems?
