  1. By filter you mean one of these? :https://www.amazon.com/58964-Magnetic-Line-Transmission-Filter/dp/B0014BCFC0
  2. So I don't know when or if the transmission fluid has ever been changed in my wd21. Its from 1995 and is creeping up on 108k miles. I was thinking I would do so my self to learn the process, but I have no idea where the dip stick is to check the fluid, or where to add and drain said fluid. I have goggled and looked in the FSM and come up empty with what I am looking for. I also have what I think is stiff shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. Its a clunk like feeling that feels like it occurs from the rear of the pathy. Would that be the transmission I am feeling or the rear differential? It doesnt occur when driving except for initial acceleration from a stop.
  3. I know the rig was supposed to come with an alarm but I never turned it on because I have sensor issues with the doors and assumed they would trip an activated alarm. When the rain ends I will try to trace the wires and then if possible remove the rusty cancer and tuck or ground the wires elsewhere. Thanks!
  4. I was sleeving a wire the other day and realized that this metal thing that other wires ran to was heavily rusted and was wondering what it was. I am thinking some form of ground point but there are no other ground points like this in the rest of the engine bay that I can locate.Was hoping I could remove it and ground the wires to a less rusty surface as I am afraid that continued rust buildup will give me a ground problem, if indeed this is a wire ground.
  5. I don't suppose there is a work around for that? Starting to wish I had waited for a 4x4 but this pathy was only 101k miles on the original motor and trans so it was a steal for me.
  6. My exhaust system is pretty much the only rust issue my pathfinder faces and I will eventually be needing a new muffler because of this. I also appear to have the manifold stud ticking issues as my pathy will initially tick when it first starts till it warms warms up. Because of this I was thinking about putting in a new exhaust system completely. So now I have questions about how to go about doing this. I was thinking about going with Doug Thorely headers but as I have the 2wd model I think there might be some issue with this? I have not found specific reasons, just various posts that say it is not as straight forward to install because the y pipe has to be modified. 1. Can a 2wd 1995 pathy have doug thorely (or any) headers installed? 2. If so, can they be installed and then taken to muffler shop for final welding or would it be best to have a shop doing the whole installation? (trying to lower shop costs) 3. Any reason why I should or shouldnt have it all done at once (Headers, Cat, Muffler?) 4. Any idea what a ball park cost a shop would charge for something like this?
  7. Prior to my purchasing of my pathfinder someone had attempted to get into the car by trying to pick the drivers side door. They failed miserably and just managed to fubar the lock. The key somewhat goes in, and wont turn the lock. So I have to open the rig by the passenger side. This is slightly annoying hehe. So, my questions is how difficult is it to replace these, and does it make sense to attempt to rekey one myself? I have access to an r50 pathfinders cylinders and am wondering if they would be similar. I imagine that having a dealer replace the lock would be ridiculously high.
  8. Replaced a faulty battery that bit the dust during some cold temperatures. Got it replaced for free since it was not even 4 months old! Pathfinder roars to a start now
  9. I drive a pathfinder because I learned to drive in an R50 and love how similar vehicles ride. I always liked the feel of the pathfinder, so when I was looking for a hard body truck and came across a great deal on a pathfinder I scooped it up. Now I have the best of both worlds, a suv that looks and feels like a truck should
  10. Thanks! Ill go take a look at that when it warms up a bit this afternoon.
  11. My pathy is 1995. Looks like the consensus brake sensor plug. Ill look into that some more today. Next question, what could have caused the plug to burn up?
  12. I have no idea Have yet to find a plug that's missing. I shall endeavor to look tomorrow.
  13. I am trying to figure out what this wire is. I have used the FSM and I think it may be related to the brake fluid? Unsure as this is the first time I have gone through an automotive wiring schematic. Any ideas? http://s90.photobucket.com/user/HastingsIV/media/20161128_145038_zpsxx2gwzkn.jpg.html
  14. Replaced the alternator today. Thanks everyone for the help, it was not nearly as hard as I thought. Today's dry weather helped immensely too.
  15. Figured out how to remove the belt with everyone's help and a reading of the FSM. Thanks! Now I just have to figure out how to get the damn thing out. Will be picking up a set of box end wrenches tomorrow as my socket set doesn't give me enough room to work in the cramped conditions. Nissan really made getting to the alternator a pain in the ass. And the ground wire on the alternator could not be in a more awkward place either hah!
