    My mother bought it back in 1997 brand new and has since then kept it. ive been in this car since i was born and she has now given it to me since i am of age to drive it. the car only has 90.6k kilometers on it which is not very common from what i can see. this car is next to bone stock besides the bumper my dad and I built when i was young together. Its the standard 4x4 SE which is probably the best car i could ever ask for. I know this car better then most people since ive been in it since i was born.

  1. im probably going to go down and look for one if i get the chance to. i dont know if this 3.0 has that anti smoke stuff on it because its such low power. but knowing ford and EPA or what ever it probably does. And if you just did a direct transfer of the exhaust sensors it should be fine i think. Might have to try it out here in the next year or 2
  2. granted if its a diesel people dont know how to take care of powerstrokes. but the rest are pretty much trash anyways lol
  3. I know what you're thinking, yes this is a Nissan pathfinder forum and I'm talking a bout a powerstroke. But just wait. I'm a ford guy and always have been. I love the powerstrokes and know more about them then most people should. But just today i found out they didnt only have the 6.7L. They also make a 3.0 v6 for the F-150. Now the first thing i thought was holy crap how did i not know about this. then the next thing i thought was..... Would it fit in the R50 engine bay. From what i can see its not an enormous engine but its still out of an f150. I wanted to know if anyone knows anything on this engine and its size and if i could Frankenstein a pathy.
  4. Heres my baby. Gave her a good cleaning today. Vacuumed out the floors front and back. Sat in the rain for 2 days not being touched so it got some dust water spots so might as well grab the hose. Ignore the front wires the lights arent working. Im mounting a 25inch bar in place of them. https://imgur.com/a/LyYj52O
  5. upload to imgur and add the link of the picture to your post
  6. Weather the thing runs or not its still a pathfinder. Welcome to the forum.
  7. i just realized from my last reply that i dont give a fskc if it leaves me stranded in the middle of nowhere as long as the engine is ok thats what i care about wow lol
  8. if it leaves me stranded what ever its not hard to call my dad and get a trailer. and as long as the chances of the engine doing serious damage if the belt snaps is pretty low then im happy. i dont really have the time or energy right now to replace it and i just wanna see if i will be able to let it go for a little bit longer.
  9. so if i had the original belt on it, even just inspecting and if i can see its still in good shape (again this engine has next to no heavy use other then commuting around at this point) i can just leave it alone. but only if then but if its in noticeably bad shape i would obviously change it. This kinda what youre saying? some people say change them every 7 or so years and the manual says about 160k i believe so theres different opinions. if its in good shape would you say just leave it even if its the factory one?
  10. I'm not the best at working on engines and mechanics yet as i am still learning (15 almost 16) but i do know for a fact the the VG33E is an interference engine and that if the timing belt breaks on these types of engines it could do some serious damage. If my timing belt snaps on this engine, what are the possible things that could result coming from that happening. I saw somewhere that some pistons have grooves in the heads deep enough so that if it does break that even if the valve was open it wont do any damage and all you would have to do is replace the timing best. Is this the case and should i worry changing the belt right now. I do believe it is the same belt from factory (97) with only 90k on it. If i let it break is there a good chance it wont break anything serious or do i have to change it now.
  11. the idle bump i get when dumping the gas and letting off has been there for years, even when my family used it normally as a daily so its not a new thing. and there hasnt been any leaks since i filled the rad with water then did a flush for normal coolant. all it does now is not pressurize and from what i see it doesnt over heat anymore and that the water does circulate. then again i wouldnt know what that car looks like over heating except for the one day where it wouldnt even move a foot on its own while running (it sounds very bad i know but at that moment we werent at our shop and we were getting it there. we thought it was a fuel error) it probably is the rad cap
  12. Alright I’ll try that later
