  1. Is that one leather? I already have a 4 spoke that looks like that but it's not the leather one:
  2. Fan control amplifier is on the evaporator box, behind the glove box, see here page 67: http://www.nicoclub.com/FSM/Pathfinder/1997_Pathfinder/ha.pdf
  3. The clutch safety switch just provides a ground to the starter relay under the hood. Easiest way to bypass the switch would be to disconnect the wire coming from the switch at the relay and run a new wire from a ground to the spot on the relay where you disconnected the wire. If your having problems with the truck is starting, the starter relay is a common item to fail.
  4. more under the dash than behind, you have to remove the glove box and the plate behind it, disconnect the 2 AC lines under the hood at the firewall, than remove the screws that hold the evaporator box to the firewall, and the box should pull out. Once out, remove the clips holding the 2 halves together, and remove the top half of the box to get to the expansion valve. There is also a plug or 2 ( been a while since I messed with one) to disconnect before removing the box. The foam they use between the box and the rest of the AC under the dash usually will fall apart, so you will need something to replace it, in my former sentra, I ended up wrapping some AC tape around the ends of the box to keep the air inside from leaking out.
  5. Make sure the vacuum line that goes to the fuel pressure regulator is still attached and that it does not have any cracks in it on the ends.
  6. Anyone know if Nissan ever had a 4 spoke steering wheel in red (burgundy) leather? Referring to on a WD21 If you have one or have seen one, please post a pic, Thanks
  7. I use this one also: http://www.rimsntires.com/specspro.jsp
  8. anytime you open the AC system, the drier and expansion valve should be replaced. Not that hard to replace.
  9. Shouldn't need 2 electric fans if the fan clutch is working correctly. Are the electric fans turning the correct way? Pushing into the radiator?
  10. Typical replacement item, not something that should fail often. if replaced it probably won't have to be replaced again.
  11. That is an exhaust mount, I replaced that one on my hardbody, it should look like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NISSAN-OEM-BRACKET-20611-31G00-BRKT-EXH-TUBE-/221740928839
  12. I don't recall a mount or stabilizer on the transfer case, could it be the rear trans mount? Does it look like this?:
  13. headlight switch is a common item that acts up over time, at least you were able to fix it. I cleaned the contacts on the headlight switch on my former sentra and it was good for a few days than acted up again. was going to order a switch from rockauto but found the OEM switch was a few dollars more and figured the OEM switch lasted 19 years so it was worth it to pay a few dollars more to get another OEM part.
  14. Close to me, I'm about 5 minutes from Mount Dora, if you need help with anything let me know, used to own a 94 Pathfinder as well as my current 93 Hardbody, formerly 87 Hardbody (and others !) LOL
  15. The switch has a separate contact for each low and each high beam. Check the bulb as was suggested (swap them) if still no low on the one side, check for power at the headlight socket, if no power, you may want to pull the switch and pry the clear (white) plastic off to expose the contacts (shown below) and try cleaning the bottom of each contact and the small metal "pad" the contact sits against. Be careful not to bend the contacts or it will never work right again. Some people just run some fine sand paper to clean the contacts. Switch looks like this ( the contacts):
  16. I can decode the Vin number and tell you what trim it is and what the original options were that came on the truck if you would like, just PM or post the Vin number
  17. When I had my 94 PF I picked up a JDM engine for it, paid about $600 for it and it ran perfect
  18. Usually when the fan clutch is bad and doesn't engage it will only effect the cooling when in traffic as when you are driving your getting plenty of air flow across the radiator. No, never heard of using a bolt to rig the fan clutch to always turn.
  19. I thought the overflow, drained out the bottom ? No the older VG30's (87ish) had the air bleeder screw in the upper radiator hose, the VG30E's have it near the intake manifold, right side towards the rear. Your last pic looks like a pic from a used car lot, where they spray that crap that makes everything shiny to make it look new ! Metal tank radiator too ! Nice, Most running hot problems are due to a bad fan clutch I notice.
  20. You can download the manual for the 93,94 or 95 as they are all very close to your 92. http://www.nicoclub.com/archives/nissan-pathfinder-factory-service-manuals.html I thought there was only one hose going to the over flow bottle ? The coolant flows to the overflow when it has too and the engine draws it back when it needs it, I do not think it is an everyday every time the engine is running thing, usually if the engine gets to hot (overheats it will pull fluid in.
  21. I just filled the system with the flush and water, let it warm up to op. temp, than drained the radiator, repeated about 3 more times and refilled with anti freeze. Make sure to remove the air bleed screw located on the side of the intake manifold when doing your final fill, after you get a steady stream of coolant coming out, put the screw back in, and also make sure to have the heat on so the coolant will circulate through the heater core.
