    Any concerns with a 1" spacer lift?

    Is there a spring for 1" lift?

    Any concerns with a 1" spacer lift?

    So 1" is perfectly fine, if i go for 2 do springs and longer shocks and that would prevent issues? or still have issues

    Any concerns with a 1" spacer lift?

    I thought I read here 2" can be a point of consern with the CV axels

    What did you do to your Pathfinder today?

    Got her oil sprayed to prevent any rust
  5. I know there have been many many post about lifts, and the search function here isn't great, but i was wondering if there are any concerns if i get the 1" SFCreations spacers? I know with 2+ i have to worry about CV angles and such, so is there any concern with a 1"? Just looking for maybe a little more clearance for winter. Also if there is a thread or anything that covers this exactly feel free to link it, thank you.

    Vacuum Line To Nothing?

    Yeah i have already replaced it. The loose charcoal in my lines makes me think its the canister

    Vacuum Line To Nothing?

    I believe its probably that area, i use to smell it near the front but assume that was due to the EGR vacuum line that wasn't attached. i'll pull everything apart tomorrow and figure it all out

    Welcome New Members !

    Hello, Been reading this forum since the day I picked up my 1997 Infiniti QX4 (pathfinder in a tuxedo) and have learned a great lot about the vehicle since and have already started some modifications and repairs. Vehicle mechanically seems really good and the body has next to no rust besides the side steps. Currently have an Auxbeam lightbar installed in the front grill, a roof basket with an extension and some Cooper AT/W's waiting to be put on. Decided ive posted enough to show off the new rig. This vehicle is primary a winter vehicle (not beater, more defeater ) and hopefully will get to do some light/medium off roading.

    Vacuum Line To Nothing?

    Thanks for the heads up, I knew it was going bad as I have already cleared my lines in the engine bay of charcoal just need to clear the rest. Would you agree that with the canister failing it would explain why i occasionally smell gas?

    Vacuum Line To Nothing?

    Just thought I would update, fixing this did get rid of my P0400 code. still have the 1447 to figure out but one down at least, and for free

    Vacuum Line To Nothing?

    You sir rock. After feeling around forever i found it. Had to remove the valve, to be able to access it and assuming i put it back together all right (valve sits in a really short vacuum line/adapter) I should be good i hope!

    Vacuum Line To Nothing?

    Any follow up?
  13. I hate check engine lights and I currently have one and have been working through the various codes. I have P0400 and P1447. I assume the 1447 is related to a bad charcoal canister as i cleared my lines of a lot of charcoal and i think for P0400 its due to either a stuck open EGR Valve or a bad EGRC solenoid. While working around in that area of the engine i found a vacuum line to nothing (attached image) and was wondering if anyone had the same or could show where it connects. I was looking on ProDemand and it shows on a diagram that it should T into other lines but i see no T and it's a short line that doesn't look broken or cut so i doubt it could reach that section anyways. Any and all help is greatly apprecieated

    Tcase Won't Shift Into 4Lo

    Okay, driving normally the transmission in D, lever in N, i can switch the auto mode on and it does a 50/50 torque split between the wheels when required, but stays RWD when not needed. At a stop, transmission in N, i can pull the lever back and engage 4L and see the light on the dash and lock auto enabled, and then swithc back to D. In all other scenarios i can push the lever a bit forward but not enough for it to engage anything or remain forward it just comes back to N (wigglin side to side) with no dash lights. My shift is Top H, Middle N (wiggle side to side), bottom 4L. engine is always running when attempting to switch. Here is a photo with the chart from Infiniti showing optimal settings and my shifter and such. There is a possibility N is the same as H and im just dumb but i dont think so? https://www.dropbox.com/s/91z835l54vogv86/Photo 2018-09-14%2C 3 32 42 PM.jpg?dl=0

    Tcase Won't Shift Into 4Lo

    I appreciate all of the info. In my case the problem is i physically cannot push the lever forward to engage H. I know the electric switch works because I can switch between 2WD and Auto and notice a physical difference.
