Hello! Have not been on here in a while. Due to other projects and me using another car a lot, haven't been using the pathfinder, my dad uses it more often than not.
Quick update on it tho, we change the timing belt and water pump on it, the people who shipped it gave us the water pump and timing belt for the next generation, I will put it on a different topic to sell that one.
We are also changing the front and rear speakers, the 6x9 in the back and 6x6 in the front I believe. Took a bit of fabrication in the front because they did not fit to spec, which is okay because you cant tell once the panel goes over it.
Changed the exhaust because the old was rusted all the way, and added a tailpipe for some swag.
Next project is adding a trailer hitch for our project boat!
I have to say thanks for all the people who contribute (or contributed) to this community. This REALLYYYY helps because there isn't much pathy content on Youtube. Thank you all who made NPORA possible and thank y'all who are helping me out with my questions. I think Im here to stay....?
Ok First of all im gonna say..... I love my 1988 Pathfinder. I told my friends id choose this over a brand new lincoln....i find myself rubbing the dash calling her my phat girl! Ive been working on her so much and always new parts. So i have issues beyond meassure.
Ill just start with the major one.
So theres a scrapping noise coming from under the car.... I thought it was my clutch release barring so WSL sold me one seperately. Of course 3 cross members i took off the gear slid transmission back. Popped in the barring. The noise was still there. So then i ordered the whole clutch kit which comes with the releade barring and the special tool to put it in.... MY GOD LOTS OF WORK! Finally i got it in.....nothing changed. Of course i drained fluid and refilled before and after.... I dont know what to do next?
Details on the engine running:
*sound is during idleing
* 1st gear
*not in 4th (so im constantly trying to drive in 4th at 60km to save the embaressing looks)
*5th even louder grinding
When my clutch is down to switch no sound. But neutral idling its grinding
