#765 of 2763 HELP::::: 2003 PF Engine Noise!!!!!!!
Nov 21, 2003 (11:54 am)
I am new at this website. I think it's great that everyone sharing their ideas regarding vehical.
I just got a new 2003 LE. It's much nicer than my old 95 PF. For Nissan Pathfinder, it has come a longways.
One Problem I am experiencing is a noise coming from engine JUST AROUND 2,900 RMP to 3,100. Have not had a chance to bring it to the service department yet. It sounds like crakling noice as you are in too high of a gear in stickshif. Has Anyone experienced this problem? If you did what was the problem and the solution?

He should be able to provide you with the correct part number for your oxigen sensors (the ones before and after the catalytic converter) then you could search here for your part or some other web site.

#769 of 2763 Port-installed satellite radio
Nov 22, 2003 (4:21 pm)
Has anyone had any luck with Nissan in getting their "satellite-ready" radio correctly modified? I was on the message board several months ago about this. I had bought an '03 Pathfinder LE and purchased the "satellite-ready" radio option. The radio was to have had a satellite tuner installed when the dealer got them. After many months of zip response or help from Nissan, they finally said they weren't going to install them (they said quality control problems) and I was out of luck unless I wanted to get an FM modulator, which I don't. I would like to hold out for true digital satellite sound. Has anyone else with this problem had it resolved? Thanks in advance for your response.
#770 of 2763 02 sensors
Nov 24, 2003 (7:53 pm)
I have a 99 3.3 lit. pathfinder. I am having problems with the 02 sensors like a lot of people do with these models. I was wondering whick set of sensors go bad is it the ones before the catalylic converter or the ones after it.
#771 of 2763 need to get spare tire out of the cargo area
Dec 02, 2003 (8:56 am)
i just bought a 95 SE sport, It is exactly what I was looking for except that the spare tire is mounted inside the cargo area. It kills the cargo space. Last week I had to take out the spare tire mount completely to fit something in. Its a terrible design, it definitely has the room to haul, but not with the tire mount in place. Has anyone tried to attach a pathfinder swing away from the junk yard? Any problems with that? Is there an after market solution? I've spent the last week trying to find a solution and have seen nothing relating to my car. Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance.

There may be aftermarket solutions for your model year. Try http://www.4x4parts.com. If you don't see the part listed anywhere on their site, give them a call and they should be able to point you in the right direction.
#773 of 2763 How much time for diagnosing Check Engine Light
Dec 02, 2003 (7:42 pm)
The steering lock of my 99.5 LE 4x4 decided not to budge forcing me to get a wheel lift tow to the nearest dealer today afternoon. Since the truck was with the dealer, I have also asked the shop to read the engine computer to tell me the reason for the persistent but intermittent Check Engine Light problem I have been having.
What do you think should be the cost (diagnostic time) for the Check Engine Light issue? My gut feeling is that it should not be more than 30 minutes of work to plug into the computer, download the records and then look up the appropriate books. Any thoughts on this?
BTW, this was the third time in the past six months that the steering lock got stuck. On the two earlier occasions, I was able to solve the problem without taking it to the shop (use shift release to release tranny from P, rocking the steering wheel while turning the key etc.). However, this time it would not budge though I tried multiple times, including an overnight rest.
The dealer has given me an estimate of 3 hours of diagnostic for both the problems which to me looks on the steeper side!

Local dealer charges $25 Can - about $19 US to read the codes.
