UPDATE - The host suffered a "Catastrophic Hardware Failure" (*specifics not shared) on 01/13 and the "latest available" backup for the website and database were restored.  At this point they have been unable to recover any later versions of the database.

     We are going to give them another 72hrs to pull off a miracle and find something later than 05/21 before we fully move forward with normal forum operations.  Maybe we'll luck out, but to be perfectly honest, it's not looking good.

     It is still recommended that new members wait to register for the time being, as any new accounts created before our final decision on a path forward is made, may not exist once this is taken care of. This is also true for new topics, posts, status updates, profile & account changes, etc.


As always, we appreciate your patience as ask that you hold on just a little longer.

  1. Don't know if you got the answer but yes you can.
  2. 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
  3. I recall someone doing it on their VG33 without any craziness a long time ago Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. www.ruggedrocksoffroad.com get on the list as this will more than likely the last batch of Dough Thorley headers they are making. That or you buy Pacesetter headers and have them modified to fit.
  8. He responds pretty quickly all the times I have. Must be a busy weekend. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  9. You can find the dye at some auto parts store or online. I think you can also rent the pressure system tool at the auto parts tore as well...I could be wrong though. There's also this coolant elbow behind the thermostat hosing that can crack and case a leak. You're not seeing a puddle or anything under the truck? Whereabouts are you smelling the coolant?
  10. The power indicator works. I think the pressing pressing down on the gas pedal is to hit the kickdown switch. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  11. That's good stuff man! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  12. https://youtu.be/QSnt_bfXEk0 Ignition to ACC Drive OD OFF ignition ON wait 2 seconds Shifter to 2 OD ON Shifter to 1 OD OFF Depress gas pedal to the floor and release Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk

  14. My hunch is it's your coolant temp sensor for the ECM and not the gauge. If you look at the top coolant neck on your engine you will see two sensors. The foremost one is the one for the coolant temp gauge and the second one in the behind it is the sensor for the ECM. That one could cause fuel mileage and running issues because the ecu thinks your engine is not warm enough so it stops it from shifting into overdrive. The transmission has one or maybe two coolant temp sensors but I cannot remember for sure. If you were to drop your transmission oil plan you will see them.
  15. I have a 1993 Nissan Pathfinder. For some reason I cannot access the transmission diagnostic mode. I get to the end of the steps but the power indicator is not flashing on the dash. Has anyone ever encountered this issue and resolved it? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  16. I am trying to figure out why my power indicator is not flashing the codes. I would not think that my 93 model would make a difference. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  17. Attempting to troubleshoot my transmission disengaging and engaging overdrive erratically. First step is to rule out a worn TPS and try to remember how to access the transmission diagnostic mode.
  18. Wow, that's really low. At least I'll have a ballpark area to know if something bad is up on the gauge.
  19. The hatch glass just pops just enough to where it's unlock and then you pull it up to where it pushes it up on it's own.
  20. I'm running a Equus electronic oil pressure gauge (90* sweep) and the sender that comes with it has the set to where the dummy light trips on at approximately 11 psi per tech support. Seeing how at idle is 9 psi, it would make sense that I should see the dummy light on most of the time at idle---annoying. Now my question is since I don't have the FSM with me, at what pressure does the dummy light switch on for the factory setting?
  21. Most of the tools you can probably rent at the parts store or find a friend that will let you borrow it. I've never taken one apart but I can foresee using a blind hole pulley, some 3 jaw pulleys, punch, or press, or bench vise.
  22. Laughing at this thread! GoGo PAM. If you have the right tools, you can pull the clutch off and replace the bearings. Most of the bearings nowadays can be crossreferenced and replacements be found. Other suggestion would be replace compressor with a new one but that's not cost effective unless you have pump to pull a vacuum on the line and pull the refrigerant and recharge.
  23. Should be plug and play. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
