  1. Like others here in Washington, most people are following along with the stay at home order. Me, I am teaching now instead of turning wrenches and I have had to move all of my classes online. Its been tricky but Im hoping I can get students in Lab to actually do some car stuff. I have nurses in my family who are taking care of those who are sick. they are seeing fellow nurses contract Covid and are sick now and a few have died. My wife who teaches nursing is terrified to send her soon graduating students out into the field. Those who don't hear or see what's happening on the "front lines" have no idea. Im staying home otherwise. Last thing I would want is to pass the virus onto someone and have them die. That would haunt me forever. Stay safe out there everyone, it's gone be a while. Living without a few things for a while is not going to affect you as much as you think it will.
  2. I have been posting this a lot lately on our FB Page, maybe it should be pinned to find easier.
  3. You do not need the iridium plugs. V-power plugs work fine, change them every 50k. NGK wires will last you 100k. Same with the O2 sensor. Be sure to double check the timing while your at it.
  4. I wouldnt want to take any business away from Rob, but if he doesnt work there anymore, I can recommend my good friends Shea and Geoff at Tacoma Nissan. They are two of the best Nissan parts guys Ive ever met. Plus Ive known them for over 10 years now. They know their Nissan stuff. Give them a call and tell them Derek recommend them they you.

  5. Do yourself a favor and grease the bushings before you install them. I use Sil-Glyde all the time and lasts a long time. It will keep the bushings from drying out, rubbing together and wearing prematurely. You may also be over or under tightening the nuts when you assemble them.
  6. Most likely you have lost the small magnet that is attached to the key cylinder inside the door. Take your door panel off and pull the plastic water shield back, look up with a flashlight at the key cylinder and there should be a small plastic "key" on the back of it. There is a small rectangle shaped magnet. Look around inside the door of its not there and you should be able to reattach it.
  7. Depending on which trails you take, a stock rig could do most of Elbe. Remember, sometimes it's more the driver than it is the rigs. What date are you thinking?
  8. Are you sure it's not the inhibitor realy? Big blue realy next to the battery.
  9. It may of needed to learn the closed throttle position as its drive by wire. It's easy to do, but is time consuming. Don't rush it and things should go fine. What you want to do is sit in the car with drivers door closed and no loads on. Keep your feet off the pedals. Cycle the key to the on position(do not try and start) and let it sit for 10 seconds. Once 10 seconds is up, cycle the key off for another ten seconds. You have to do this about 20 times. This will learn the throttle pedal closed position as well as the throttle body closed position. You should end with they key on. You can then try and start it and see what happens.
  10. What year is your rig? Which engine?
  11. That's weird! I was just on his website a few days ago. But I think is was on a different host or something now that I think about it.
  12. Uh, yeah! Japanese engines love NGK plugs! I've changed far too many cheap plugs from Nissans in my time.
  13. Put new spark plugs in tonight. They were overdue but not in bad shape.
  14. If you listen to the Nissan Nation Podcast, they are currently talking to a guy who did it last year and he is sharing his experience. He did it in a Xterra, modified some and pulled a trailer! The TAT is in my bucket list also!
  15. Well, if we can't get one in soon, I know I will be going on Memorial Day weekend(probably Sunday). I've been doing so for the last two years and this might make it a thing 3 in a row! Sorry about the loss! Oh well, you got to have lots of fun in it!

  17. Remember I have a 5 speed that needs rebuilt and you can have it. Might save you some downtime.
  18. Check this out if you haven't already... http://www.nissanpathfinders.net/forum/topic/19755-fix-your-keyless-entry/
  19. We could hit Tahuya in April maybe?
  20. Instead of buying a tool, why not rent one from the Home Depot or something? Possibly cordless? So you might have to buy a blade, big deal.
  21. Courtesyparts.com has a timing belt kit. It's everything you need.
