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.

Just curious if the replacing of your IPDM corrected your issue? Did the problem re-cur? We have an 05 Pathfndr and it is doing exactly the same thing. It will begin sputtering almost like an elecrical fault is the cause-and during the sputtering session, the service engine light rapidly flashes on and off--I simply turn off the ignition key and restart the endine and that seems to "reset" this issue until next time--which could be in 5 minutes of 5 hrs. Please respond. Thanks.

My particular issue ended up being a bad alternator. I replaced the alternator and haven't had any problems since. None of the local dealers or parts stores stocked one ($185.00) So I ended up scavenging one from a wrecking yard for $25.00;
I saved the old one in hopes of getting it rebuilt by a local alternator/starter shop. Haven't needed to yet though. Good Luck!

Same problem with my 2001 and cannot find anything to replace it without calling Nissan directly and paying $$$$$. Have some paint bubbling underneath gas cover which needs fixing also.
