    Gas mileage...

    We're still doing about 13, maybe 13.5 on premium at about 4300ft elevation. Early VQs were thirsty beasts. I'll do spark plugs and the maf cleaning stuff at 200k (194k now) and we'll see if it improves

    What did you do to your Pathfinder today?

    The problem with it is it's too damn long so you cant bend it a bit to twist it like the vg30 which makes it just that damn much harder. Unless you drop the diff (on a wd21 st least) and pound it through that side I'm convinced the only thing you can do is beat the crap out of it with a flat bar and pry it up. Heating doesnt seem to change anything and sticking it back in freezing the tube and lubing it doesnt really change much either. A flat dipstick would be a preferable swap in my opinion. I like them better than the wire and weight but either work

    That sounds about right, to be honest I get better gas mileage from my 500hp Trans Am...

    I wonder if there’s a flat dipstick we could use in place of the wire rope from Nissan. Next time I’m at the junkyard I’ll go on a mission to find one that’ll work.

  8. I’d rebuild it. Unless of course I could afford a 2020 Bronco (IF it’s solid up front), then I’d sell it.

    The VG33 dipstick also sucks ass. My xterra one is a pain to remove and it is hard to check the oil.

    speedometer issue

    95 is an electric speedo. You can try taking the cluster out and cleaning all the contacts and tightening the brass screws.

    Gas line size

    Yep, 5/16". Or 8mm. I ran all new lines last year, that was fun.
  12. It’s a toy... it’s a ooo fskc moment. Soo DO IT
  13. So like the title sez, I went wading through a waist deep muddy rain water puddle the engine sucked in some water through the intake and one or more of the connecting rods got bent. As well, as I went 4 wheelin' at midnight (lol) and managed to lose my goddamn cell phone in the puddle I had to leave it in until morning to recover the car. It had some water seepage into the cab on the driver side, but it did stall on the side of the puddle so the passenger side of the cab did not have water ingress. After a hilarious recovery operation and a weekend at the shop (got the water out of the engine and it still runs), the engine is now making a loud ticking/knocking noise, but all the electrical components seem to work and there are no ODB codes being thrown. Edit: seems the tranny and t-case still work ok... can still shift into 4Lo and the 4Lo indicator does not blink Sooooo my question is, is it worth it to rebuild/swap the engine? Or has the partial flooding doomed my rig? Any input appreciated. Press F to pay respects. P.

    Swapped vg33 into the truck and used the vg30 oil pan since the 33 wouldnt clear the diff and I neglected to swap the tube out then so had to do it now. Wont regester the correct oil otherwise. Apologies for all my spelling issues and confusing sentences I post on these damn things. Phone cant keep up with my typing I guess. Makes me look like a damn child I know.

  19. So it's the bell housing is different on these trannies. My thought too, already saw one but just wanted to be sure. Thanxx Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk
  20. My understanding is yes, it will work, just change the rear bell housing if it's from a 3.3L, the front bell housing is the same, I was going to do this swap, but the valve body fixed my issue.

    Gas line size

    Got a leak in a gas line along the frame under the passenger door area. Is the size 5/16?

    Cargo area interior light flashing

    The latch-mounted switch didn't work on my '95 either. The assembly wasn't built to come apart for cleaning, and I was surprised at how hokey the actual switch was once I got it open. I didn't have the tools I have now so there wasn't much I could do with it. I ended up rewiring the cargo light to the switch for the tire carrier (for the idiot light on the dash), but I'm guessing your '01 doesn't have one of those. There might be a good spot on the body to drill a hole and mount a generic door switch, or maybe you could fab some kind of bracket to add a proper switch to Nissan's hokey solution.

    Tachometer Resister

    When the coil field collapses most of that arching high voltage energy goes to the spark plugs, but some of it rings back onto the DC input side of the coil. The condenser, which is generally a capacitor, but perhaps Nissan used a combination of a capacitor and a resistor, dampens that ring back. If it isn't dampened, it can do bad things to other electronic devices, especially hall effect RPM sensors if that is what the VG uses. I'm sure it is in a substantially bigger case than necessary. But you can't base a resistor size on its ohm resistance. It will have a power dissipation factor too. At 2200ohms, a tiny resistor for a tiny load might be 1/8 watt, or one as big as your fist in an industrial application might be for a 100 watt load. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Tachometer Resister

    How would that effect the tachometer? That also looks a lot bigger than 2200 ohm.
