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.

Hey, my name is Scotty but I go by Doc also. I have a 1995 4 door VG30E Auto 2wd WHD21 213350 on the ODO. Rare in that it is rust free, unmodified and stock as a clock with working windows and door locks, original transmission which is slipping.... All the gears are there but it does slip, slow to engage into drive, slight drive train shudder at certain speeds and if you stomp on it, it tries to catch but if your 30 percent throttle and roll into it, it acts like an ok 1000 dollar truck....no updates from the dealer either, like I said 100 percent factory...lol. From someone who grew up in the rust belt up upstate ny, it was such a great to see factory paint marks, good brake lines in 20 plus year old truck... The sun has done a number on the seals around the windows and some minor bushings... and so have the previous owners with missing wiring and random bolts.. Torsion bars are in decent shape... I have Been a mechanic or tech for 15 years. Always will be a ford guy but I enjoy rare Normal vehicles and Yknot a 11second 2 wheel drive pathfinder to add to the mix. Yknotauto on Instagram having trouble uploading on here for now.
I got a 95 pathfinder with 213300 plus on the odo, 2wd auto RE4RO1A trans.... There is a rattle and a tinging noise from the front of the engine like a bearing or bolt rattling around, I'm thinking timing belt related but settles down after 45 secs to a min and there is no noise when its up to temp, no misfires or engine codes...it just seems to be the worst on cold start ups. Belt tensioner cause this? Idler pulley? If I take things apart most of it cant go back on the engine to put it simply so taking time to troubleshoot so its not down for a month. Its weathered so new hardware is needed to anything I take off lol. It all looks original. After a hard pressure wash its also rust free and you can tell it sat for years but little rust so I'm saving her lol. Also have an oil leak from somewhere around or on the side of the engine cover around the oil filter and where the timing cover meets the upper plastic portion cover... Anything known to crack or wear out in those areas? I'm new to the VG engines and pathfinders in general. Hope the day goes well!
