  1. I already got my Pathfinder 1988, in case someone is shopping for one I thought I would share this one i found on CL http://newyork.craigslist.org/brk/cto/2768585469.html
  2. Yes. My garage (nissan independent) replaced my starter with a factory nissan starter. $350. installed. The truck is running 100% now.
  3. I just heard back from the garage (a reputable Independent Nissan Garage) He checked all connections and the starter solenoid and deemed my Starter Motor DEAD. He suggested replacing it with a Beck and Arnley or a Factory Nissan Starter (the difference in price between the two installed was $50.) so I asked him to go with the factory one and if he can not find a factory part to go with the Beck and Arnley. I hope this spells the end of my starting and running issues with this Truck! With tires I am into it for $3500! It is going to be a $4000. Pathy before I know it. It better last me 4 winters....

  9. I just heard back from my garage. (Very good reputable Independent Nissan garage) My front end is "fine" he told me the only possible issue might be one of the tierod ends can not be loosened to adjust when I bring it in for an alignment. I asked him to go thru and "break" and retighten all of the adjustment points in the front end. If he comes across one that he can not "break loose" then I will have him replace that particular component.
  10. I should have added... When I bought the pathfinder 4 months ago the seller told me the alternator was "going". I brought it to Meineke and they replaced the alternator with a rebuilt one and replaced the battery with a new Interstate battery. The alternator Meinke put in crapped out after a week and I gave up on Meineke and had the truck towed to a independent. He replaced the alternator with a Beck&Arnley (sp?) one and the truck had been fine until this starter issue began.
  11. Ok MORE on my starting issues. This morning the truck started "funky" turning over slowly at first and then finally "catching" and running. I drove home shut it off. About 30 minutes later go back out to start it and NOTHING, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, NO click, nothing dash lights come on but seriously nothing... Has my starter finally bit the bullet? UGH!!!!!
  12. Well as usual thanks to everyone who replied. I am having the truck towed to a indepent nissan garage tomorrow. I am hoping it only needs one or two ball joints to remove the slight play and then I can get it aligned and call it a day. I will keep you all posted on how the front end issues get resolved once I hear back from the garage. thanks again! Andrew
  13. I am begining to think I will have a Gold Plated Pathfinder by the time I get my New to me 1988 road/winter ready!? I woke up to make a 7:30am appoint today (saturday) at a local reputable tire shop. I bought Kumho Road Venture M/T's 235/75/15 to replace the well worn Michelin LTX's that where on the Pathfinder when I bought it a few months ago. I bought 5 tires (rear mounted spare was original 1988) to replace all 5 at once from www.treaddepot.com I have purchased tires online from them for years and they always are ALOT cheaper than any other internet source I have come in contact with. That said the tire shop calls me into their office to let me know the bad new$$$ my Pathfinder needs $959. worth of front end work..UGH The truck has 170k miles on it and I am not really shocked it has some front end needs but OUCH! I did not have them do the work. The told me the truck is unsafe to drive because of a small amount of play when the tire/wheel are moved pushing at the 12 O'clock position on the front drivers side tire I do hear a slight clunk sound. The want to replace pitman arm, ball joints, tie rods... honestly I do not have the sheet in front of me so this list is from memory. Questions - can just the balljoints be replaced? and is it worth it to just replace on side balljoint if need be? All I want is for the truck to be safe and road ready to last 1 winter and then I would like to be able to decide at that point if I want to dump more money into it or punt it. Thanks in advance! Andrew
  14. So I go out, turn key and while it seems to be taking a little bit longer to "ignite" it started just fine. I tried it two times, no real problem. My neighbor was out with me and he told me "you might have had a flat spot in your starter?" what? I was hoping to have come up with a definite fix it solution as I would hate to have the Pathfinder leave me stranded 400 miles from home. Hmmmm I wonder what the problem could be?
  15. I will try it this afternoon and report back. THANKS FOR THE INSIGHT!
