    Running funny

    So I didn’t get the OBD2 port working but I replaced the spark plugs and it’s running back to normal now. Not sure which plug it was but they did look pretty old Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    No dust or anything under the cap. When I try to connect the scan tool, it will not work at all. Is there a fuse that might be bad? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Would it be the whole distributor or just the cap? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I’m wondering if it’s a misfire. I connected a Obd scanner to it to see if it it was misfiring and it won’t even register the scanner was there. I was gonna replace all the plugs but I will take a look at the distributor first. Thanks man! You’re always very helpful Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Running funny

    Hey all, My Pathy has been running fantastic for the past few months but the other day I was driving it and it didn’t sound right. It also didn’t have any power. It wouldn’t get past 65 and then I remembered that I put 89 octane in it with the thought that it may help improve fuel mileage. I only had about a quarter of a tank left and so I added about 7 gallons of 87. Then it drove fine again. I went to drive today and it’s actjng funny again. Could it be the fuel? Is there something else I need to check. No cel either. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Still getting poor fuel mileage

    Hey all, I posted about a month ago I was getting about 14mpg in my pathy. I realized the knock sensor was throwing a code so I relocated that. Still getting poor fuel mileage. About the same. Anything I can do other than not drive it to improve fuel economy? Thanks. 96 pathfinder SE 4wd 5spd manual 3.3l Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fuel Mileage

    Just to fill everyone in, I relocated the knock sensor like all the videos have shown and have since fired it up and to my surprise, the p0325 code went away! Hopefully, I see an improvement in my fuel mileage. Next I think I’m gonna replace the o2 sensors like was previously suggested. The hardest part of this whole process was crimping the wires together. I’ve never done it before so it was a learning for me! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks for the tip! I found a video that shows exactly how to do it. Hopefully the wires colors will cooperate with me. Lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fuel Mileage

    It has been from full tank until I get to empty. So by my calculations I am only getting about 11-12 mpg. I ordered the knock sensor and wiring harness today. Which o2 sensors should I replace? I’m sure the sensors are old. I have only owned the rig since August so I am not sure. I had and 02 xterra a few years ago that would only get 14mpg too. Bugged the living heck outta me! I loved that rig and am sad that I got rid of it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fuel Mileage

    Nope! I didn’t have CEL but I did scan for codes and I am getting a p0325. Knock sensor. This sucks. I definitely don’t have the money to take it in to get replaced, nor the patience or knowledge to do it myself. However, I did read something about relocating it. Not sure if that’ll make a difference at all but I guess it’s worth a shot. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fuel Mileage

    I am not sure how much my fuel tank holds but I get about 250-270 (if I am lucky) miles to the tank. Anybody else getting these numbers? I know v6 isn’t gonna be the best on fuel mileage but this seems really bad. Any suggestions to help with fuel mileage at all? 96 pathfinder 3.3l 5spd manual 4wd Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
