#116 of 125 Distinct whistling while shifting
Mar 05, 2011 (10:38 am)
Ahhhhh....the Pathfinder.....lovely vehicle, isn't it?!?!?!?! Please accept my apologies in advance....after replacing u joints, mutiple sensors, radiator and transmission (x2), I have grown a little bitter about Nisssan as a company and Pathfinder as a product. So, after I had my transmission replaced, one day in to driving it and I am noticing a distinct whistling while it is shifting through the gears. Now, I drive this p.o.s. everyday and this noise was not there prior to the service. I have had it back tothe repair shop twice, they can't find the source. I am certainly not a mechanic but doesn't it stand to reason that there may be something going on within the transmission that is causing this annoyance? Please help!!!!

I have been there enough times .
I had an engine problem with mine once that was intermittent , dies on the road and restarts when cooled off, so after many returns and under warranty they replaced coils wires, plugs, timing belt and more, its problem wasn't fixed, so I got in touch with a rep from main headquarters for them and insisted I talked to a diagnostic specialist, he was very understanding so from 1200 miles away he called the dealer and walked them through the diagnostic to find it was a transmission sending speed sensor ,that never gave any trouble until I let them do their great transmission flush and they must have broke the sensor ,all I can say is I should have never let them flush the tranny .there wasn't anything wrong before that. LOL

I have a similar noise and it is caused by the spare tire. The spare tire is bolted into a well which is underneath the vehicle and directly below the cargo area. It is common for the tire or associated hardware to squeek. If you can get your vehicle up on a lift, you can try tightening and/or spraying with WD40. Best of luck!
#120 of 125 05 nisan pathfinder engine mount
Feb 04, 2012 (6:48 pm)
I have a 2005 nissan pathfinder LE. Today i went to change tires and while inspecting, the mechanic found both engine mounts are cracked. They are saying to replace it and it will cost about $900 to change both engine mounts. Now, I am not sure what engine mount is and what it does. Does is cost that much to replace it? Do i really have to replace it? I dont have any issues with the car. Sometimes I hear some cranking noise coming from underneath while getting out of the car. Not sure if it has to do with engine mount or not. Anyway, any info on engine mount will be greatly appreciated.

did you have the mounts changed, and yes it could cost up to $900 for both. They need to raise the engine.

On top of the transmission/radiator issue....Has anyone also experienced their pathfinder NOT STARTING/CRANKING. I brought it to the nissan dealership and they could not determine anything and assumed it was the ecu being burned out, i also looked online and they said it was a matter with the valve body having a short circuit. Does anyone who has experienced this problem know the real solution/problem?
#124 of 125 noises from rear suspension
Oct 16, 2012 (12:46 pm)
I have a 1999 Nissan Pathfinder with 96,000 miles. There are noises coming from the rear suspension. It sounds as if it it bottoming out sometimes when crossing railroad tracks or hitting potholes or expansion joints. It has been doing this for at least a couple of years. I got new shocks and it seemed to quiet down just for a couple of months and then came back. Saturday a new noise started. When backing out of the driveway where the driveway meets the street there is a thump thump sound. this just started Saturday. The repair shop seems unable to tell me what it is. Does anyone have any clues?

The only time mine has failed to start it was either the ignition switch or the battery.
