    help speed sensor adapter?

    The 94+ used an electronic speed sensor and pre 94 were mechanical. You need the 94+ speed sensor to have a functioning speedometer.

    Re4R01A Hd Transmission Information

    94+ VGs switched to a different oil pump and corresponding TC and I recall somewhere that the VQs--not sure which exactly had a larger TC and the input shaft length was different. Someone may have posted this information here or somewhere in the Facebook page.

    How loud is your Pathfinder

    I have the phone at ear level while driving. I also plan on placing it all the footwells, transmission tunnel/t-case shifter, and headliner area behind my head to get a base line. My door seals have shrunk and I've been just filling in the gap with sealant. I'll use black this time instead of the red.

    How loud is your Pathfinder

    I'm am just getting a feel of how it is inside for other people with different mods. I downloaded an app on my android phone called Sound Meter. They have it for IOS users as well. 93 Nissan Pathfinder XE Cloth interior 4x4 33x10.50 BFG MTs 2.25" exhaust with generic performance muffler Windows up 78-82 dB cruising at 70 mph without music on smooth road.

    Poor insulation?

    It's a win-win if I can knock down two birds with one stone. The heat is tolerable but the noise is unbearable. It doesn't help either that I have developed an exhaust leak on the passenger side header.

    Poor insulation?

    Revisiting this again. I need to do some body work on the roof since I have rust issues around the windshield and holes I have to patch from the stock roof rack. Thinking about installing this to the roof: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Reflectix-16-in-x-25-ft-Double-Reflective-Insulation-with-Staple-Tab-ST16025/ https://www.homedepot.com/p/Reflectix-48-in-x-25-ft-Double-Reflective-Insulation-BP48025/ then I just found this: https://www.homedepot.com/p/UltraTouch-48-in-x-75-ft-Radiant-Barrier-30000-11475/100656747 which I believe is what GrimGreg used. I read the reviews and a lot of folks used this for sound deadening which is also what I was looking for.

    Tilt steering column covers

    I'll keep an eye out too. Still looking for replacement gray for mine. I had to remove the metal lower place for mine to tilt and fit. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk

    Mushy brakes

    I have an extra MC if you want it--aftermarket for rear disk. I bought it when I swapped to rear disks and removed it for the 300zx master when I threw a dana 44 up front. I had also replaced the booster too thinking after replacing the drum MC for the disk MC and didn't notice too much of a difference between pedal feel. I have always suspected that the aftermarket knuckleheads making disk and drum MCs used drum proportioning valves for the disks. Also you might want to try and redo your bleed sequence. I did ABS module first, and then LR, RR, RF, LF. Now If that doesn't work you could try the traditional method of farthest to shortest.. LR, RR, ABS, RR, LF. The rears do not really matter which you do first since they're T'd off from the middle above the diff.

    unusual 'tapping'

    Hmm. Hard for me to picture these clicks. I imagine your fluids are still good and topped off. What's the mileage? Exhaust hanger on the transfer case intact?

    Xterra tranny question

    Don't know if you got the answer but yes you can.

    Purple? Should be red. I don't know if royal purple is purple so you have to check. Check the tcu for codes along with ecu if you can get it to work. That's a start. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk

    Fan Coupling Rebuilding Help needed

    My guess is it's pressed in. Have you tried letting it soak in pb blaster or stronger rust breaker? Heat or maybe a few good waves with a hammer may break the pin free so the valve can rotate. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk

    95 pathy shift problem

    Is the throttle cable adjusted properly? It's not too tight? Have you tried Checking to see if you have any stored codes? Ecu and tcu? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk

    Headers 95 Pathfinder

    It's been a decade or so things may have changed with pacesetters or my memory had gone downhill since. Great to know Pacesetters work without many issues. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
