orileys told me that they can get me one in, I just have to know what vehicle I need to order it for.
I thought some people with r50s had them installed. So no one does?
I would like to relocate my oil filter. Does anyone have pictures of their different setups? I would like to know what brand and what vehicle its for. I would like to mount my filter under the hood with the bottom facing up preferably (like on old rx7s)
I would like something I could walk into a parts store and order, Parts stores in my town are Autozone (I dont like our local autozone though), O'reiles, advance auto, car quest, and napa. Part #s would help too if you have them. Basicially, I want to change my oil at 6k miles since Im using fully synthetic but I still want to change my filter at 3. Plus I dont like spiling the oil all over the frame where it does.
Any pics of where you mounted the filter would help. Thanks!
I have the same problem with the rear one not working. All fuses under the hood and dash are fine. What I figured Id do is hotwire the rear one. Just have been too lazy!
your not going to get anything other than stock travle struts
They have bitten the rear bumper wings and ripped the corners off though.
You must have a strong mouth
Which pictures are you refering to?
the one I posted under the other pics in the quote
wwops, just checked, them tires in the pic are 255 70
and im 4wd, not that it matters because I think 2wd and 4x4 have the same suspension
My 02 has LT245R16, no suspension changes:
245 is just your width, whats your aspect ratio?
I have had a 255-65 on mine with stock suspension
its more of a local thing. he will get them made as he has had them made befor
I didnt know it was possible. I would spend close to that in american if it were possible because its probably going to be cheeper than the tickit I will get some day
16x8 with a 5" backspace
thats less than stock :o
What tire size do you have on there again?
Its a wonder how someone with a ride like that has never poped up on either of these boards.........
That isnt a kma bumper is it?
It also is kinda wierd to have a 8.5" rim with only a 265-70, My 7s work fine for 265 75
damn tyler. I have to get your lift!
Its probably the input shaft o-ring.
thats what I ment, I just couldnt think of its simple little name though
she dont want you to perform surgery from her....
Humm, I dunno about the pellets. I have heard just as many people say they work as Ive heard say they dont. If my tires go out of balance this quickly, Id rather not balance them at all, and if the pelets work I only have to do it once, if they dont, Im out a few $.
Maybe I should try marbles lol. No searously, how bout them?
Id say tq convertor seal
4x4le, do you have any pics or anything of where you put those little foam pads? anything would be greatly appreciated.
No, sorry, I didnt think to take any pictures. All I did, was have someone drive my truck aroud on bumpy back roads while I didasameled the dash and glove box and vents. I had some foam blocks I stole from work (I work in a factory making interior items for nissan) and stuck them in places to eliminate the rattles. I stuck my hands on the vents and the such when there were rattles and then put stuff in there to make them stop rattling. I put a wash cloth in 1 spot. The thing is, everything rattles again. I probable fixed the old rattles, but i think the rattles I have again are new. I think my rattles have to do with out of balance tires. They were balanced when I got them, but I think they need them again, I think Im going to but airsoft pellets in them so they will just be balanced and stay balenced. My pictures probable wouldnt help because our rattles are probable different.
Some places I know I put them are:
In the sun glasses holder to keep resistance on it when its shut
in the glovebox to keep resistance on it when its shut
under the windshield window pillar
and I think that the rag went under the tube that leads to the central vent and I think I accessed it through the glovebox. I think that I did something when I took the center plate off and stuck something under the center vents.
If you build it, they will come. I bet if more people made stuff for the pathys, more people would buy the stuff, then people would see other modified pathys and then modify theirs. That is the main reason there are all these other aftermarket parts for other vehicles. People probable never get the pathys in the first place when they realise there isnt much that they can do to them and get something else that has parts avabiable for them. Thats why there isnt much of a market for them. I see people all the time in r 50s stairing at mine and have even had people ask me where I got my lift and stuff because they didnt realise that anyone made anything for them.
I have alot of rattles too caused by the tires at certain speeds. I shoved a rag in 1 spot inside the dash, and I have stuck little foam blocks in other spots. I have given up for the most part but when I get really bad ones, I work on them again.
Just today I was thinking to myself, how much nicer my pathy would ride and how much better the gas mileage would be, and how much better it would be on the interstate I it was stock again. F*** THAT!!!
max, I think he ment what engine would be his.
It is a VG33e
3.3liter single overhead cam electronic fuel injected v6 in the vg block family
Or you could wait for the new skyline to come out and surely someone will wreck one within the first week of them coming out and then you could wait for that and put in the vq45dett. Your best bet since what your wanting is a easy swap is seing if you can get a vg33e long block from somewhere and bolt all your stuff on it.
A vq40de would be soooooo nice though.
when my motor starts acting up, Im going to start saving for a vq40de swap sly
Im coming close to 100k miles, so I have tons of time to save
BTW, how many miles did your engine have on it when it went?
What actually blew up on it?
therefore know more about it than you do....
like i care, I wasnt trying to be in competition. I was just adding a correction
The r50 doesent have ucas
Trailer Wiring question
in 96-2004 R50 Pathfinders
I got the kit from ac. It is easy to install and works nice. My only problem with it is that it dont have the wire to override surge brakes in reverse. I hope its not thred jacking, but since you have everyones attention, Is there a kit for our pathys to overrride surge brakes while in reverse or can I just have a swith that either grounds or provides 12v that I can switch on when I go into reverse?
Anyways, I thought that might be something to consider if your trailer or any trailer you might tow has surge brakes.
