  1. it was one of those things i totally forgot to replace. which is why i was looking into a magnetic drain plug. looks like its a no go. the magnet wasnt too bad when i cleaned it. so im thinking tranny wasnt dirty to begin with. as for new cars, i replaced transmission fluid on my 2015 Jag xf with lifetime fluid. The plastic pan has 2 magnets inbuilt and the job was alot easier than the pathfinder. would sticking the magnet from outside help in any way at all?
  2. Thanks for the suggestion. looks like its an online part. ill try to get one ordered up. looks like installation isnt too bad. much better than reinstalling the pan.
  3. i changed the transmission fluid anf filter over the weekend. buttoned everything up and found out i left the Magnet outside . would it be safe to drive? im looking for a magnetic drain plug but havnt had luck finding one.
  4. Thanks for the reply. For the transmission i believe valvoline maxlfe and castrol muliti should work. Is there a preference?
  5. I Just got the Pathfinder started after sitting for 2.5 years. got it working thanks to the helpful peeps on this forum. Now I'm in the process of doing some maintenance. I'm looking for recommendations on transmission and diff fluid for a 2002 Pathfinder with 4X4.
  6. Just heard from the Dealer. they found out one of the pins in the ecm were bent, after straightening it and plugging it back in started right up. finally some good news today. will be picking it up after work. thanks alot for all the help. will report back on how everything goes.
  7. also found out the check engine light doesn't illuminate when turning key to On position. everything else lights up but no check engine light.
  8. wish i could even connect my reader. i get no codes and no connection to the car.
  9. thats my thought as well and i have sent the car off to the dealership to reprogram or reset the the security system. I could not connect any of my equipment to read codes. i tried it with my neighbor's Autel reader and no luck. it just wouldn't connect. so i swapped the ecu to the used one i got and still no luck. Today the dealership tells me they are trying to read codes but no luck. but they are still working on it. hopefully its not a big issue
  10. As for the security system, it blinks without key and stays on when ign on. Im thinking its supposed to go off when ign is on. Is there a way to bypass the security system?

  12. So im in the process of testing and found out relay 2 (passenger side) is working and clicking as well. Seems like i have no power to the relay 2( drivers side). I bypassed the relay by connecting 2 points together and fuel pump is working. But i still have crank but no start
  13. i have checked for power at the pump connector and theres 0 Power
  14. thanks. the only reason i ask is because the previous owner tells me he had the TPS go out and took the ecu mosfet with it. he keeps insisting its the TPS and not the IACV lol.either way he sent the ecu out to be repaired and put in a new TPS. it never started after that. he thinks its a faulty TPS. i just talked to him last night and this is what i got from him.
  15. I will definitely doing this procedure this weekend and let you know how it goes. Also many thanks for the diagrams. It definitely helps a electrical noob like me. If worst case it ends up being something like an ECM thats gone bad. Would another ECM just plug and play from a different car?
