#1007 of 1201 2001 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4x4
Jun 18, 2012 (8:27 am)
Okay I have a 2001 LE 4x4 with 141,800+ Since Feb 25 2012 and 136k I have had all kinds of nightmarish crap. Btw I have had it almost 5 years and just over 102,900.
I have had the fuse blow for the starter about twice, cold start resulting in stalling unless key is turned to start before it hits zero rpms or your on the gas, and for the past 2-3 months I have had the P0740 code coming up.
I havent had the fuse blow in a while (April 10 2012 is last time).
Cold Start problem I have no clue- tried replacing fuel pump and fuel filter based on similar symptoms with a work vehicle, replaced the intake hose that was cracked (not known if it was leaking).
P0740 Code I have not gotten a definitive answer from the few people I have asked about it. I asked the dealer on cost and they said $2300 to replace the solenoid, i later found out that was all the solenoid. I got one educated guess that took a look at the car and they said its about $300.00 to fix.
Oh yeah anyone loose control of your air conditioner (on/off and fan speed controls non-operational/malfunctioning)??

I did this fix on my vehicle myself, I had no complicated install issues and so far have had no issues.

I guess your entitled to your own opinion but I was honest... I didnt say the car was or is perfect.... But now at 142,500 she is doing well for the problems she has... Running strong. And if i may.. Why you doubt my review?

same issue here.. mine was shifting really hard and over revving, it has 86000 miles its a 2005... took to dealer and I did buy an aftermarket maintenance policy so dealer calls ins. co for policy and they wont look at it unless it gets flushed. I do that and doesnt help much... so while driving in heavy traffic a few weeks later it totally dies.. I shut it off and it did restart.. took to dealer next day and it went to a transmission shop.. everyone that has driven my truck states definate issue.. but the insurance co says it has to be torn down to pin point where failure occurs.... So this is done and yup everyones jaw drops because they say no mechanical defect to warrant claim... even though there is antifreeze in tranny..I think the radiator held that time when they tested it.... the tranny.bangs into gear and over revvs this isnt normal, I did what i had to do to preserve the tranny and i will prob get stuck with a bill I can not afford......... I bought ins to protect myself and they had no problem taking the premium......... help!!!link">

Read further in the Transmission thread. There is a noted defect with the Trans and Radiator. The 2004-2006 models seem to be a problem when it comes to this.
I will recommend to you that you take it to a dealer ASAP and tell them to fix it. You may have to report it to the NTSB and or look for a recall cause this is a common issue. This needs to be done BEFORE you go over your Standard warranty/extended warranty.

#1014 of 1201 2007 Pathfinder water in trans fluid
Jul 15, 2012 (12:35 pm)
Im reading ALOT of complaints on Pathfinders and I now have water leaking into transmission fluid along with the stutter at 40 mph do I've opted to turn the OD off when driving in city. Basically my point is "am I reading all these complaints and ABSOLUTELY NO RECALL HAVE BEEN DONE, correct?
Who else is having issue of water in transmission? Its not just older models I have '07.
