  1. Not sure if the Nissan one is as detailed, but for my 4Runner the Factory Service Manual wiring diagrams are extremely detailed, telling you every connector and ground (and where they're located) that wiring for each system goes through, which may be handy in tracking this issue down a bit on paper before going nuts tearing your interior apart. It can be very frustrating trying to figure out where a wire comes out once it enters a dash loom and you can't see what's going on.
  2. If you're concerned about broken wires I'd find both ends (which will likely be spread across various plugs so it'll be a bit of a pain) and start doing some continuity testing with the ol' multimeter. I agree with Slart though, sounds to me like one major plug is messed up somewhere.
  3. Good point, forgot to mention that. The part you remove for my solution is where that sensor is normally mounted. I drilled a new hole in the side of the airbox for the sensor. Never had a code issue.
  4. Looks like you guys had a lot of fun! I know Tyler is a cool dude and has a well set-up Pathfinder so should have been a good time. Cool to see Buttercup on some rocks!
  5. A regular change is no big deal (like drain the pain and fill back up the appropriate level), the issue is a flush which is at a higher pressure and can loosen up that accumulated junk.
  6. There will be at the end of the year, Truck of the Year is handled by voting amongst the year's monthly winners. @YegorTheLlama hasn't won a month yet this year so if he or someone else were to submit this pic in an appropriate TotM nominations thread and won that month, the pic would be in the running for TotY.
  7. I believe @hawairish has a thread with info on super-packing an LSD somewhere. You can make it super tight if you want.
  8. I'd say your easiest solution would be to get an LSD from a Pathy with the right ratio and add more clutch material from any other LSD diff to make a good diff that'll easily fit in/match up with your rear end.
  9. Congrats @RainGoat! *Pending official border.
  10. READ AND FOLLOW THE RULES! NOMINATIONS AND POSTS NOT CONFORMING TO THE RULES LINED OUT BELOW WILL BE DELETED WITHOUT NOTIFICATION. 1. You can nominate only Pathfinder/Terrano/QX4 trucks belonging to Registered NPORA Forum Members. New members will have to wait 3 months and have a post count of 100 before they can be nominated. Members who are banned, currently on suspension or for 1 month after their return from suspension will also be disallowed. (If you are banned you won't be able to be nominated for 2 months). 1a. Include the name of the NPORA Member who's truck it is that you're nominating (even if it is yours) 2. NO FAKE OR JOKE ENTRIES. 2b. Only original, unaltered photos with out graphics, advertisement or watermarks will be accepted for nomination. (Actual permanent stickers are allowable.) 2c. Final acceptance of TotM Nominations pics and winner submissions is at the sole discretion of the NPORA Moderation Team. 3. First 20 nominees are up for consideration and the nomination thread will be closed after the 20th submission or the 20th of the month, which ever comes 1st. Voting will be from 21st-31th. 4. One pic per nomination post, pics must have at least 640x480 of usable image space for use in the in the official boarder in the event that it wins the popular vote.All nominations are subject to the approval of the Mod Team and all decisions are final. Try to make it a good one or nobody will vote for your nominee! A recent pic is preferred but if the Pathy is still in the same shape as your last pic, go ahead and use that. An offroad setting or action pic is also preferred, but not necessary. 5. Only one truck nomination per member per month. 5a. If multiple people want to nominate the same truck, it is up to the nominee to decide on which pic to run with. In the absence of the nominee, the decision will be made by NPORA Moderating Team 6. Winner gets 3 pics of their choice of their Pathfinder pinned in the TOTM forum (PM me the links please) and is ineligible for the remainder of the calendar year. 6a. A Member can only win once a year - multiple pathfinders does not mean multiple wins. 7. No post whoring. 8. Not reading these rules may result in a zombie attack. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TOTM: THEMED MONTHS The idea was put forward by packie88 with then intention of getting people out in their pathys to get themed shots. It is only each alternate month that is themed, so you can post up whatever pic you want in the in between month (Some people will never see snow). It is a kind of rule, but a loose one. For example, water crossing nominations may be considered if there is a mud crossing, the truck is in water, or crossing the road in a torrential rainpour. If you post up a pic with no water in sight, then that will be removed. Below are the monthly themes: January Anything goes February Snow pic March Anything goes April Water crossing pic May Anything goes June Sand pic July Anything goes August Flex pic September Anything goes October Sunset pic October Sunset pic November Anything goes December Mud pic This nomination thread is open through October 20 or until 20 submissions are reached (whichever comes first).
  11. The only moving pieces on it should be the U-joints and slip joint, realistically the only part that should wear on it would be the U-joints which should be easy to check. It is not a "2-piece" style with the carrier bearing, that was only for the 2wd's I believe.
