    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. i get the basic clamps with the 2 bolts on the side and the sandwich plate. These ones here are what i'm talking about which are very easy to use and install. I use them on my trailers all the time when, my personal and the ones we build for customers that require a deep cycle.
  2. next time i get up to my shop this week ill try pulling it off and playing with it. if thats not the problem then what would it be? just a hose leak then? I think its a sort of vapour because you put in the special liquid and then it sprays that. but it doesnt feel wet at all so its some sort of dry vapor i think. ill look it up and see what comes up.
  3. when i pop the fuel cap it does release pressure when i open it if that helps any. i forgot to mention that also. ill look under when its not raining but for the most part its only showing up as a check engine light thats really annoying. EDIT: technically I do have a smoke machine..... one of those Halloween ones if that would work lmao
  4. I keep getting a check engine light for a P0440 and P0446. I have checked gas cap and it appears to be fine. The car has only been legally on the road for about a month and a bit and has since then starting doing this. I have checked off the valve next to the throttle body that there aren't major cracks but not sure what else to check. the car runs perfectly fine no idle stumble no loss of power the light just comes on i clear it and then it stays off for about a week on average. Not sure where to go from here and hoping its something cheap and easy i can fix myself.
  5. I love mine. its a similar spec setup to yours same colour, 4x4 and the 5 speed i just love it so much. i love all the pathfinders but this style with the red just speaks out to me. Love your rig hope to see more of it
  6. I used a gates kit on my 97 and am very happy with it so far. the tensioner felt very nice water pump was great also. i do recommend doing the cam seals too and like said above the thermostat. when i pulled off the rear cover and the cam gears my passenger side had a massive oil leak that i didnt even know about until i got in there. so i recommend you do those too for a few bucks its worth it.
  7. i pulled it apart and got to the module. i checked over all the solder points and they look like new so i didnt bother. all the resistors on the inside looked alright too so i just cleaned off the screw contact points a little bit and now im just gonna wait and see. if it does it again ill do the solder points regardless next time if it ever does do it again. i did not see anything loose either so maybe jarring it enough to make better contact with the screws helped. time will tell.
  8. i might do that on friday. but the thing is i have my drivers test on monday and i cant work on it until friday because of school and what not so i dont want to tear into it a few days before and then have it not work at all. i might just do that because im probably over thinking it since ive never taken this apart before. would that also give me the code p0500 then if that was the issue and theres a bad joint somewhere? EDIT: just watched a video on how to take it apart so ill just try it tomorrow or something and hope that works out
  9. Well it happened again, and it gets a little weird. It stopped working the other day so I tried the same fix as the first time and that worked. Then it happened again. I tapped in the plastic and it spring to life. But then I got a p0500 code and the dash wasn’t working. I cleared the code and punched it again and then it sprung back up to working. Why?
  10. I work with aluminum on a regular since i work in a fab shop, and when you weld aluminum it burns and turns black around the welds. we use lots of rubbing alcohol to polish after welding and grinding but to also prep when welding. since theres a global pandemic and all rubbing alcohol is either sold out or extremely over priced we like to use acetone. it works fairly nice after welding and eats at all the dirt pretty quick. just make sure that its a bare piece with no paint or markings that arent engraved. theres probably some scientific thing about using both on aluminum but its just what we have found works the best and have yet to see any side affects. another product we use is actually from the dollar store. its an "as seen on tv" labeled product called "La's totally awesome cleaner" and works really nice on aluminum and anything that needs a degrease. another would be vinegar, but ive heard that it can eat at damage aluminum if left for long periods of time with out rinsing.
  11. had this problem in my armada. the glass handle would work and the hatch handle would not. there is a little cable on the inside that goes to the handle mechanism that had slipped out of its hook. not 100% sure if the pathfinder is the same but it probably will be. and you can get to the latch from inside of the car you just have to crawl in and pull off the plastic panel. the steps are listed above by R50JR.
  12. still think its absolutely hilarious how its been this long and its been in changed. BUT i ordered all the parts on rock auto and will be here Thursday including a new rad and fan since both have decided to kick the can. to anyone who is putting off their timing belt do not do it it is bad and can end horrific. im just lazy and didnt have the funds
  13. oh man do i ever! at least it gives me something to do lmao
  14. No problem! I’ve tried looking for these online before and couldn’t find any that would fit this so I said screw it I’ll just make my own. I’m very happy I did.
  15. Never had a WD21 or have enough knowledge on them so though I’d just stick it here. If they fit the wd21 then that’s pretty good to know
