  1. Maybe 2 days ago I noticed a slight click in the steering wheel when ever I began to turn left or right. Not to say that it click through the entire turn but rather a small click at the beginning of each turn of the steering wheel, (moving or stationed). I checked the lower shaft steering column and I can twist it with my hand about that same amount I can twist it when I feel/hear it from the steering wheel. So I’m assuming that’s what the click is. Any guidance as to what this may be? Something wrong with the upper steering shaft? The lower? Or even just a bolt needing to be replaced? Here’s a link to a pic with the lower steering shaft highlighted to show what I was able to twist to get that same noise from the steering wheel. —-> https://ibb.co/s93T9nc —> https://ibb.co/7QGYbbH
  2. Hey there, I’m trying to mount a brush bar that came off a 93 pathfinder however my bumper (1991) is different than a 1993. Does anyone know if a 93 bumper will mount to a 91? I’d like to mount the brush bar with out having to cut holes or slots in my precious OEM bumper.
  3. Mine were like this as well, I got some wd40 on a rag, wiped down the tracks, regulator, window mount’s plastic slide pieces and then put a little bit of grease on the track and it works brand new.
  4. Thanks for the tips! It randomly just stopped the day I was going to take it apart and replace what I assumed was a relay. Thankfully it hasn’t came back and has not been triggered by messing with the fog lights. So ya know what they say, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.
  5. I got a brush bar off a 93 pathy at the junkyard along with some running boards. The running boards look like they will fit on fine, but i have not connected them yet. The brush bar however i thought would be an easy transfer but it looks like a little modification will have to be done because i realized after i brought it home the bumper designs are different. It still seems like it will fit, but some holes will need to be made or an extension will need to be added to the bottom of the frame to extend it. Does anyone know some wahys to do this or examples on the forum that might help. Ill link some pics of my pathy and the one i took it off. here are links of my pathy and old one https://ibb.co/swQLCg9 https://ibb.co/KbVw0hX
  6. I can feel a vibration along with the clicking noise over on the left side of dash. It only started happening after I was messing underneath the shifter and parking brake and I unplugged the fog lights, then shortly after i was finished... it started making that noise. I may have accidentally left the actual headlights on while doing that, but im not sure if that could have messed up any relays. Its odd because i cant use the power locks unless the car is completely off aswell as the rear hatch window switch, and i cant use the windows at all. I checked all the fuses underneath the driver side kick panel and im kind of at a loss. Here is a link to a Youtube video...
  7. That ended up being my website of choice for the fuel pump i installed the new unit and couldn't figure out what was wrong with the old one. anyways i alos didnt know that you had to buy an additional harness or holder (whatever the fuel pump is suspended by for the tank. i ended up using the original piece to hold it up with a new o-ring ofc. Am i going to regret using the original harness? It looked fine. but then again idk?
  8. Exactly what i thought. I did just that, and shes good as new. minus the stupid exhaust leak lol
  9. It ended up being the fuel pump as i suspected. I installed an OEM pump onto the same "harness/attachment" for the pump which i didn't know you had to order separately but works well and the pathy is loving it.
  10. Anyone heard any thing about these coils?
  11. Im sorry to do this but I have to beat the dead horse that is the ever spawning pathy Lift Thread. Ive checked almost every thread i could find and I just keep getting mixed signals. I would like to do a suspension lift and a body lift (not sure what would be good measurements would be). Im stuck because I want to learn how to do all this myself. However, I don't want to have to replace my control arms, torsion bars, ball joints if I don't need to and so many lift kits don't tell me what I do or don't need. As I'm in this learning phase, some guidance is really appreciated that being said I'd like to try and save money but not go looking for parts in a junk yard. I want a lift in the range of 2" to 3" (2" 1/4", 2" 2/4", 2" 3/4", etc....) this can be achieved through a combination of body lifts and suspension lifts as I'd like to learn both methods. I'm going to have a mechanically inclined friend help me put and teach me a bit but some guidance for purchasing parts or kids would be appreciated heavily. In the form of an aesthetically appealing measurement, my noob mind's ideal suspension lift is: 2" suspension lift + 1/4", 2/4", 3/4" Body Lift. Im a bit confused still but with the research i've done on kits, you shouldn't have to change your control arms on anything 2-3 inches typically? not sure about torsion or camber or ball joints being changed though? 1) OLD MAN EMU 1.75" i've looked at the old man emu one because 1.75" lift plus 1inch body lift is pretty alright in my eyes (because of its simplicity) but jeez 650+ is possibly doable but do i need a specific torsion bar from them for the extra money >>> 990+ is a little steep but is the torsion bar worth it? i'm not doing crazy stuff and i don't plan on it but i do plan on over landing and doing exploring. 2) Rough Country D21 Hardbody Lift (all heights) I saw a forum talking about using a 3" hardbody lift kit and only using the shocks and control arms and then just buying some springs off of rockauto.com (but i don't know how to compare the height difference id receive? Perhaps you can provide a good alternative and explain to me how to tell the difference?). This seems like the best viable and most affordable option, However i can only find 1.5"-2" lift kit. is this going to give me 1.5" lift or 2" lift or a variable height in that range? i'm confused? 3) Id like to her any suggestions or ideas you may have and even websites you'd suggest. I appreciate your feedback
  12. Alright thanks i appreciate it, i was also looking at this "premium part" from rock auto (a delphi part) for 100$ less. Heard anything about these? Im a college student so cash is very tight.

  14. Last night my pathy's engine suddenly went silent and slowed down to stop while driving down the street, still cranking but not starting up. After getting it towed home I've learned my fuel pump is what went bad and ill need a new one. That being said, I was looking for any suggestions as to a good replacement part because the one installed is a warranty part that is two months old and the brand is apparently a piece of sh*t. I was also wondering about this being a good starting job for me to learn how to wrench on it a little bit and since i know that pathy's have panels allowing easy work on the fuel pump if i'm not mistaken.
