  1. I thought i was looking for Ford heritage.... sorry....?
  2. Same her, I have changed the knock sensor several times, changed injectors, MAF... I woks for a time.. and then.. again... My mechanic said one time, might be the ECU.. i do not know... Still hace knock sensor code...
  3. Mine, a 2000 manual gear, 3.3l, previous owner did a full engine repair at 240.000km (150.000miles), at 260.000km i broke 2 valve lifters.. have to replace them all 12, and re build the camshafts... So far.. it has been a great ride, have done some "long" trips with my family (2.500km - 1.550m), now it has 278.000km (173.000m). Did MAF replacement (Altima OEM), 1.5" spring lift, and some minor stuff... And...We are thinking not to sell it... for now...
  4. I used some thick transparent heavy duty hose... and it worked well, don´t forget to put some grease on it.
  5. Some people have installed thr MAF on Nissan Xterra V6, and nisans 3.3 v6 engines , since both vehicles have the same engine I think it should work ok...
  6. I found this one on Amazon, but I think is the same as RockAuto... And asking about it, I think it works. I hope so... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004SJL8DM/ref=psdc_15730591_t1_B0074NKINA
  7. After changing the MAF, do i have to do the "IDLE AIR VOLUME LEARNING"..? Or just plug ´n play ? (for VG33E engine) https://forums.nicoclub.com/how-to-ecu-relearning-procedures-t445702.html Thanks
  8. TowndawgR50, Thanks for the info... but does it work only for 3.5L engine?
  9. I have been looking sevral models... The model my Path (Vg33e engine) has is the Hitachi 22680 2j200 AFH70-14 At Rocker they have this one to CARDONE SELECT 869937 https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=928354&cc=1212051&jsn=494 or this one refurbished A-1 CARDONE 7450014 https://www.rockauto.com/es/moreinfo.php?pk=417311&cc=1364138&jsn=11 They have cheaper options to....
  10. I am looking for a MAF sensor.. So where to buy the Hitachi afh70-14? Is this one a good option? https://www.rockauto.com/es/catalog/nissan,2000,pathfinder,3.3l+v6,1364138,exhaust+&+emission,mass+air+flow+sensor,5128 thanks
  11. For what i have read... Does the knock sensor in the VG33E engine is "dumb", or something like that... I mean, the engine has a distributor to ignite the spark, so the knock sensor can not delay or advance the ignition... I do not know if I am wrong...
  12. Those two months had been changing and repairing parts from the pathy... on June two valve strikers broke, no mayor damage... Had to change all the valve strikers and repair one camshaft, no damage on the engine. Since they have to disassemble the engine, we change the knock sensor (it had 0325 code) with an OEM sensor... After that... again... 0325 code... so.... One moth ago, I went to gas inspection, did not pass... We found that all the injectors we dirty, clean them up... and all the injectors start to leak... I change the injectors with Hitachis... and change again the knock sensor with one that my mechanic had.... Again.. 0325 code... We verified the cables, conductivity, etc.. and it is good.. no problem with that... Ask with another mechanic about sensors and told me that maybe some OEM sensors may not be read by the ECU... because of materials, construction, frequency, etc... So I decide to buy the original.. (Hitachi) I bought at RockAuto.... Installed... And again... 0325 code... Maybe is how the mechanic install the sensor, should the two cables that comes out of the harness have to be welded... or just one cable and ground (screw) What should I do... Ignore the code? Thanks
  13. Something similar happend to me... Go to the #68 and #72 posts... Works for me... http://www.nissanpathfinders.net/forum/topic/42046-mickmutantes-2000-r50-vg33e/page-4
  14. Fixed the dashboard clock of my father in law's Pathy 2004 R50... You have to resolder all the resistances... NicoClub instructions... http://forums.nicoclub.com/pathfinder-clock-fix-t465835.html
  15. The weird vibration continues, not so much but still, the smell of gasoline too... and O2 sensor code P0150 (bank 2 sensor 1)... Today i went to the mechanic.... I had told him about the weird vibration and gasoline smell, and the code... So... He did a what we call here "synchronization" clean parts, change spark plug, change cables, clean injectors, etc...
  16. Changed my 1 1/2 year old battery for a new Bosch.... Lets see how it goes...
  17. Delta50, Bobbyyy (I use google translator)... I thing al my metal parts are in good shape and rust free... i know the performance of the truck with poly is going to be little harder/solid, and durability of poly is much much longer than rubber... Should I continue with my rubber/standar bushings... Or jump to poly?
  18. I tried to send the set of poly bushings to a cargo in NY, I had been buying stuff and send it there so they send me the stuff to Colombia, really good price and fast shipping... But at 4x4parts they do not send to a different address from the billing address... I tried to change it fron paypal... Not possible... I was looking for distributors of those companies but it is difficult to have them shipped here... About OE replacements here... we have a lot... It is easy to find them but they are really expensive... But I want to change to poly... For now, I thing I would buy the part I need, until I find how to buy the full set of poly...
  19. Upload them on PhotoBucket or similar... And copy and paste the IMG code...
  20. Which is the web site of AC? I tried to buy from 4x4parts but I was impossible... Long story... I really need poly front and rear bushings... Thanks.
