UPDATE - The host suffered a "Catastrophic Hardware Failure" (*specifics not shared) on 01/13 and the "latest available" backup for the website and database were restored.  At this point they have been unable to recover any later versions of the database.

     We are going to give them another 72hrs to pull off a miracle and find something later than 05/21 before we fully move forward with normal forum operations.  Maybe we'll luck out, but to be perfectly honest, it's not looking good.

     It is still recommended that new members wait to register for the time being, as any new accounts created before our final decision on a path forward is made, may not exist once this is taken care of. This is also true for new topics, posts, status updates, profile & account changes, etc.


As always, we appreciate your patience as ask that you hold on just a little longer.

  1. The switch on the steering column is notorious for going bad. Take it apart and look at the contacts.
  2. Lol, the hell with that. I've never smelled fumes so strong in my life. Also the original 26 year old starter finally gave up the ghost on the weekend. Got that swapped out fairly quickly, way easier on a manual!
  3. I think I have a few of em too from yard runs. Sadly no wd21s in the yards here for quite some time.
  4. Changed the oil. Castrol 5w30 and a random fram filter I found in the garage. Found my exhaust leak, the drivers side pipe to the y pipe, gasket/flange is blown out at the bottom. I have doug thorley headers in the closet for 3 years. So I will weld the flanges shut on these old pipes so I don't die of asphyxiation in the mean time.
  5. I'll get one tomorrow. My odo reads exactly what you want hahaha.
  6. Funny enough, at least where I live, the pathfinder is a classic now. I even have it insured with Hagerty's...
  7. Yep, mine has it, guess no one has removed the arm yet.
  8. Lol if you google "weld gas tank" most of the results suggest to fill it with water to avoid any problems... Although for a wd21 the tanks are cheap, just buy a new one. I could see how what you were working on would be harder to find.
  9. Sounds like the hell I went through putting an aftermarket one on my old 94. I got so pissed off that I just shelled out the $200 to Nissan for one that fit.
  10. Where I live that is pretty much mandatory lol... On my old truck I snapped all 6 screws off inside the tank.
  11. You mean the sending unit? Provided it wasn't corroded and your gas gauge worked fine, no issue in reusing it.
  12. There used (or still is) to be a place in California called Nissan only wreckers. I've bought several parts from them and it was great, considering I live in Canada and I haven't seen another wd21 where I live in a long arse time. So it appears to be a pretty good business lol
  13. Worst case scenario a new tank is only $110. Small price for peace of mind if you find it is full of junk. https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/nissan,1995,pathfinder,3.0l+v6,1211993,fuel+&+air,fuel+tank,6268?
  14. 3682 is the Fram number and the right one for this engine. The 3614 is just a shorter filter and not the right one. It may also have a built in bypass while the one for our engine does not (this engine has it's own on the filter mount). Someone probably just slapped the 3614 on there because they didn't have any 3682. Don't believe the BS on the fram filters, the tough guard or the ultra filters are actually very good.
  15. 31x10.5x15 was a stock size. If the rear is rubbing (like over bumps) then your coil springs have sagged.
  16. The power terminal from starter to battery is just a 0 gauge wire with no fuse so I wouldn't go sticking anything down there. You can get those strap oil filter wrenches that usually works. I've also driven a screwdriver through it to turn it loose. As long as you spray some brake clean on the starter shortly afterwards it'll be fine. I've never had oil "kill the starter" doing it this way.
  17. I definitely would have done the same... Mangle first read how to take apart later haha. If you can't get it straight enough to work I can probably send you the one I have.
  18. Sadly they are dealer or JY only. 4x4parts.com used to sell a kit but they don't anymore. And it was just Nissan parts boxed together. I would go back to the JY and get the brackets, you'll have to mangle the truck to get them out most likely.
  19. You'll need the master/slave cylinder, clutch hard/soft lines, and clutch/brake pedal assemblies from the donor. Actually, just buy a new master and slave. You will need to modify the wiring so it will start and if you want the cruise control to work. I believe someone posted on here before.
  20. I have a spare compressor I can send this guy if he needs to replace that clutch plate lol... Just have to yank it off the parts truck.
  21. If the pump truly is bad, I would only replace it with an OE pump. Aftermarket ones are hot trash these days.
  22. VG33 distributors seem to fail a lot these days. The aftermarket ones are crap. Mine is still on the original one but I've changed a few for people and my roommates frontier ate 3 aftermarket replacements in a month.
  23. I'm gonna have to try this on my Xterra, every time it rains water pours in (drivers side only). I cleared it once with compressed air but this might work more permanently. They are the same style sunroof.
  24. FFS Nissan has had so many opportunities to do it right and each time they friggin take the easy way out. I know these crossover pieces of @!*% sell more but Nissan used to be a brand people were very loyal to, look at the d21 and the Z crowd, and to a lesser extent, the Xterra crowd. I still remember all the hype when they came out, it was a big deal, and I was only 16 at the time. I will probably not buy another Nissan ever again. The new frontier is OK but no manual option means I won't be looking at it (will likely look at 2nd gen fronty's with a 6 speed). That whole no one wants manuals thing is bull@!*% and really only in North America...
