#2686 of 2771 2 small problems with my 1992 Pathfinder.....
Mar 05, 2010 (6:07 pm)
I just purchased a used 1992 Nissan Pathfinder about three weeks ago. The previous owner took immaculate care of it with regular 3000 mile oil changes and garaged it's whole life. Needless to say, it is in GREAT condition. It runs great and I have fallen in love with it. However... after driving it around for two weeks it developed a squeak in what sounds like the drivers side front shock area. It squeaks when you go over bumps in the road and when you apply the breaks. It is more of an up and down squeak not a break related squeak. I have looked all over up in that area and can't find the source, any ideas or help in this area would be appreciated. Also would like to find out how to replace my rear window washer pump. Won't spray washer fluid on my rear window. Any help from anybody is greatly appreciated. Thanks.....
#2687 of 2771 Stupid starter

Hi all, recently the starter went on my 93 pathfinder took a dump on me and I know I can fix it myself but I don't want to start until I know whether or not I need to remove other parts to lift it out. Anyone who has spent time under a car knows the surprises one can get when trying to do a simple part swap. If anyone can help it would be great.

If you do find out how to replace the rear window washer fluid pump can you let me know as well. Its such a pain not to have it working.
#2689 of 2771 1997 PF with Service Engine light
Mar 12, 2010 (11:13 am)
1997 Pathfinder with 94k on it.
For about 2 years, the Sevice Engine Soon light has been coming and going. Car runs smooth and never seems to be running differently whether the light is on or not. It's made it thorugh 2 inspections without throwing a code. I've replaced the fuel and air filter and cleaned the throttle body and the light still comes on every now and then. When it comes on, it will usually stay on solid for a few days and then turn off for a few days.

Your engine computer is detecting something, but only intermittently. When it does not detect the problem after a certain number of "drive cycles", it will turn the light off until it detects the problem (or another problem) again. The only way to determine what the problem(s) is to download the fault codes (which will be stored in the engine computer) with a OBD (On Board Diagnostics) scanner. You can buy an inexpensive scanner, or alternatively Auto Zone will use their scanner and read you out the code(s) for free. It's easy, you (or they) just plug the scanner into the OBD port on your truck...on a '97 PF it's under the dashboard if I recall correctly. Let us know what you find out.

Your squeak in the driver side strut area sounds like the Upper Insulator needs replaced. I had the same problem with my '02 Pathy where it would squeak over bumps. I took the whole strut assembly apart on the driver side to see that the Upper Insulator (the triangle-shaped part that actually mounts to the vehicle frame under the hood) had all of the rubber eaten out of it. I went to Nissan and bought a new one for around $50. Problem solved, Hope this helps

Did you ever get an answer on this or find out what was wrong? My car is kind of doing the same thing. I have a 1996 Honda Accord. Thanks.
