  • Your Pathfinder Info
    Basics: 1988 Nissan Pathfinder SE-V6 4x4 5Spd, 430,000+ Miles. Background Info: I originally purchased this truck in December of 2001, but held off on doing any modifications, for the most part due to the many problems I had with it early on… such as vary poor performance that ended in the truck being completely un-drivable. This was corrected with the replacement of the ECU (which was the root of most of my problems). Soon after that was repaired a broken Camshaft gave me quite the headache, but I luckily came out of that with minimal damage. This was followed by both keyways in the crankshaft rounding out, which led to a new(used) engine. Engine: Performance camshafts, Dual Oil Filter Relocation Kit. The engine was replaced with a used unit (131K) at 291K when both crankshaft keyways rounded out on the original. And this was after the right hand camshaft broke around 270-280K. Waiting on Install: Headers Drivetrain: WARN Premium Manual Hubs, Nissan Hardbody transfer case shift lever (to compensate for the 3in Body Lift). Waiting on Install: LockRight Rear locker, 4.6 in Rear Diff. Convertion to Rear Disk Brakes, Front Diff with 4.6 R&P Suspension: Superlift UCA's, JGC Coils (approx 3in Lift), Sway-a-Way Torsion Bars, ProComp ES3000's, Energy Suspension coil spring isolators/spacers. Steering: Upgraded TK1 Style Centerlink (fixed by Trailchaser since Phil Dawkins of L&P Performance refused to replaced the life endangering Centerlink which he supplied me with) Double Shear Pitman and Idler Arms, Idler Arm Brace. Steering Stabilizer. Body: Performance Accessories 3in Body Lift, Custom Roof rack (adapted Chevy S10 Blazer rack), Ventshade vent visors, Deer dent behind drivers door... and a dent "in" the deer by the ARB *grin* Thule Roof Rack/Cargo Basket. Waiting on Install: Factory Fender Flares, Xterra Roof Rack Electrical & Lighting: 110AMP (Quest/Villager) Alternator. JVC HDR1 High Definition Radio/CD Deck, Overhead DVD system, Navigon 2100 MAX GPS, 1100 watt power inverter and a Cobra 25LTD Classic, Rear High Mount Speakers from a '94, nothing really special yet in the speaker departments. And a pair of PIAA Fog Lamps on the front of the ARB. 5-6 100watt Offroad Lamps. Waiting on install: Two 55watt Rear Facing Lamps for the Thule Basket. Tires/Wheels: 33x10.50 BFG Mud Terrain KM2's on Ultra 589 15x8 wheels. Armor/Recovery: ARB BullBar, HiLift, 12.5K T-Max Winch, recovery straps, portable shovel, axe, First Aid kit, dual tow hooks, etc. Interior: Rear Belts w/Shoulder Harness from a '94, '95 Center Console w/tall arm rest, rear floor ducts for the climate control. ------------------------------------------------------- Did I mention that Phil Dawkins of L&P Performance built and sent me a Centerlink that seems to have been made to endanger my life??? And that he has refused (by ignoring all my attempts at contacting him) to correct the situation by sending me a properly made Centerlink or reimbursing me for the costs involved in having it properly fixed... did I also forget to mention that this has been going on for well over a year now??? Can you guess what my opinion of such a stand up business man and all around great guy Phil Dawkins might be??? Contact Phil Dawkins @ 217-351-8316 and ask him why he has not corrected this situation and why he would endanger my life, my kid’s lives and the lives of those around me by building such a poor product and then actually sending it to me thinking that I am some idiot customer who blindly installs anything I get (Phil, I look at EVERYTHING before I install it, I will not install anything that is questionable to me before making sure that it is safe.. and everyone agreed that the CL you build was NOT even close to safe!!) If you get an answer from him, please let me know, because he sure as hell will not answer those questions for me! Pictures of the Centerlink in question, along with the story can be found here: http://www.nissanpathfinders.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=14730

    Mushy brakes

    17hr day, not thinking straight so forgive if I am stupid ...Air gets by the bleeder valves? Tried replacing them too? And yes you can use Teflon tape on them or at lease I have in the past (not the Pathfinder) and never had a problem. If air is getting by them under vacuum, then it's reasonable that air is getting into the system because of them too.

    Help please tbi issue

    Perhaps a picture of what your looking for/what is missing would be helpful. Have you headed to local wrecking yards to browse around for what you need?

    Need to fix my AC

    You may find that just charging the system will meet your needs for the summer, may even do the trick for a few summers, but ultimately you will need to find and correct the coolant loss in the long term.

    Tow hitch

    As long as it's spec'ed to fit a WD21 87-95 it should be fine. Got mine from a wrecking yard for... $50, I think... was a long time ago. You'll need a converter for the lights as well, 4-pin converters are not that expensive and not too hard to install either. Not sure, but if they made different class hitches for WD21's (not really sure why they would have bothered with anything other than a 2in) but if they do and your going to install one, just go Class lll (2in) don't risk needed it after going with something of lower capacity.

    Couple things regarding the text box. Emoticons If you start to type the code for an emoticon, then the options that match what you have typed should appear. For example lets take the thumbs up emoticon ( ) . For that the code is either of the following two options :aok: :Aok: If you start to type that code you should see the following pop up (may take a second or two) The more letters in a Emoticons Code name you type, the more fine-tuned the list will become. *note that typing native forum emoticon code while using a mobile browser, such as that on a cell phone, will bring up the forum emoticons corresponding to that code (in addition to those which may be native to the mobile device itself) Member Mentions They have finally added a "Mention" ability. By typing @ followed by a members name you can Mention a Member in your post. Please note that by using this feature the forum will automatically sent the mentioned member a notification (per their notification preferences) As an example I'll mention myself.. Here is the code you would use to "Mention" me in a post. @RedPath88 Starting to type that will pull up a list of members similar to this. The more letters in a members name you type, the more fine-tuned the list will become. This will result in the following in your post @RedPath88

    Mushy brakes

    So I don't really know why I never asked this before, as it's one of the things I normally check and verify myself, but a resolution post in another thread reminded me... Have you pulled the drums and visually check that everything was good on both sides of the back end. Are the adjusters working property, shoes, springs, levers, etc in good shape... or pads if they are disks. Is it possible that one of there rear cylinders/calipers seals are bad and sucking air back in when brakes are cycled?
  10. @fleurys Looks like we may have a winner??
  11. Well that really stinks... maybe it's just being overlooked, so perhaps if we keep this thread active someone will notice it!
  12. Hey Scott... you are close enough for option 2 \/ \/ \/ And those of us who have been around for a while know that your more than capable of the installation... as long as it does not require the use of fire
