NPORA Old-Timer (5/5)



  1. Totally agree! I checked it with the wheels down but i do need to lift her up and try again. Is there anything specific to look for w the CVs? I know they are old and seep grease but the boots are actually ok.
  2. Greetings all, It's been about 7 or 8 years since I posted, but I still own my pathfinder! I have recently had battles keeping the maintenance up to date. I have struggled for 2 weeks sorting out a four-wheel drive issue. I have manual warn locking hubs that I just serviced to work correctly. My four wheel drive works as it should. However cruising in 2 wheel drive with the hubs locked I get a single thud fairly randomly from the front end that you can feel shock the truck has if you hit a bridge abutment. Running the truck in 4wd hi seems to alleviate the problem but I have felt them much more subtley in 4hi. If anyone has any thoughts or any experience with this please let me know!
  3. If plastic look for the aluminum ones on ebay....they are the best! Just need to order 1 new coil pack to fit correctly....I believe it was #1 spark plug.
  4. Anybody here with a late r50 monstalined?
  5. /\ /\ /\ Same for my 02. Click the button a couple times and shes back to normal.
  6. Seafoam is our friend! This stuff does wonders the first time you use it. I used this on a Mazda mx3 with 249K and it really woke the car up....amazing.
  7. You may as well get at that rear thermostat while your that far...and the PCV valve too. In this pic the PCV can't be seen but is on the rear of the valve cover on the left...it is a PITA.
  8. I get between 16-17 with open hubs, 4.6 gears, AC lift, and lowly 31" tires.
  9. The VQ is a top performer, so of course it needs more attention...great vid! I have had both VG & VQ. I miss my VG, mostly due to its gutsy never give up feeling. I have JWT S1 cams and they livened up the load...but never to be confused with my VQ. .....I am not looking forward to the RMS leak, but I already have the valve cover thing on the drivers side...dang expensive covers for fiberglass huh? ~01Silvapathy~ Your vid shows the path running an 8 sec 0-60....this is exactly what the car mags qouted them at back in the day! This was faster or as fast as the Tahoe which was a huge deal at the time!!
  10. Ahh, this forum is the best. Most all the folks on here have the best intentions! I got another strut mount, from Advance this time, and will be mounting both sides on top of the mount isolator....I will post my outcome. Thank you all...again!
  11. Beautiful! Thanks for the link! ~Devonianwalk~ Have you experienced any issues with the axles?
  12. Yes sir. Bearings and mounts. My spacers look like NX4's top mount style, but I have been using them inside the coil set up. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hmm, it appears that by using my spacers on the inside there is no support under the rubber mount, so they are more able to pull apart. I have used these spacers for 6 years and only replaced the drvrs side 1x and now the passenger is headed for its 2nd one. Anyone have pictures of there rig with the top mount from NX4 in use? I think that I might try them on top of the strut mount, but don't want to be taller in the front than the rear.
  13. Hi all, been a long time since I really posted much of anything. I have however continued to love my pathy...well it hasn't been mutual lately. I have the AC 2" coil lift set up with a 3/4" spacer, which is mounted inside the spring/strut combo. I recently replaced the passenger side strut mount and have driven it approx 3K on road mles and it is wrecked again (rubber seperated). I am fed up with this totally. Please post up with your set up (inside strut combo vs outside vs just spring lift), and your woes. Maybe you can help ease my pain! **If I was spending more dough on the pathy I would lose the spacer and get a SFD kit, but that is a "new" bathroom amount of money away.
  14. Yo! It looks great, nothing like a mid-sized V6 being a beast and not wearing jeep skin! I love it! My .02 I regeared when I had 265/75's on my stockers (same wheels as yours too), it was awesome...the 4.63's make her jump to attention. I can only imagine the difference you will feel carrying those anvils (OEM 30lb whls)and entire rubber trees around after you swap! I WILL say that my 1.5" spacers did eat my wheel bearings so dude with the backspacing comment on wheels your right buuut they will still wear shht out...as will 35's lol, but we do this knowing that! Maintainence is easier than the customizing he has done, therefore almost fun! Just remember, once you cut up your buggy, it won't be "stock" anymore...right now you can still claim that~~~oh yeah and you can't put that metal back on like Nissan had it! Nice work man enjoy! ps. I have gone back to 31's and have aftermarket wheels...I know, I suck. I have however wow'd a few Silverado fans in my area, especially when I leapt over a small stream and ripped my strut insulator apart!
