  2. After the new replacement parts the car needed a trial run. A delayed overnight hike in the cascades provided an opening, so we took the pathfinder out east.  Did a few miles heading south on part 5 of the WABDR. Everything checked out. 👍

  3. My buick has a mechanical choke on its carb and would give me something similar, albeit with the legendary consistency carbs are known for. Things got better when I noticed the choke cover had a hole in it and I got rid of the points. The fiat spider I used to own had webber carbs. Can't recall I ever messed with them. The simplicity of classics, to be able to customize without huge aftermarket support, or no support in the case of the buick. That trooper looks mega utilitarian. Box on wheels. I like the different names they released it as. I don't think I've heard or read of another car released under so many different names. Apparently even in it's home country it got a name change after release, lol. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk

    Checking out website function. Minor profile changes. Mostly use a different app to browse for info as needed.  





  5. Keep posting. I can't vote for yours as truck of the month until you're 3 months in and have 100 posts...apparently. What's up with that super clean lookin interior? [emoji102] Did it transfer over to the engine bay? Warn's are nice, I've enjoyed them, and I believe have paid for themselves. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk

  7. I'm a staunch advocate of new to you, replace all fluids and filters so it's not a guessing game. You'll know the condition of all those for best longevity and future trouble shooting. Except for any previous issues that caused it to sit and rodents, I'd imagine it would start up like nothing happened. Perhaps with a few pumps of the peddle? Smells like strawberry milkshake but doesn't taste like it. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  8. I like it very much. Please humor me and consider the following: give it a truck bed but leave that triangle window and turn it into a baby monster truck. Like a trucked out el camino, that thing would be majestic, where it should be. Or give it a sleek aluminum roll top, maybe the old top could be made into a camper?

  9. Update from last post. Based on my tests and services the decision was made to drive it until it goes. Tranny gave out trying to get us to the oregon Bigfoot festival. Rip tranny. Before those hills(I knew it didn't like hills) it was a perfect beast of the concrete jungle. Would probably be out there roaming around still on that older tranny but the pathfinder wants to hunt, it doesn't want to be fed. So I dropped the transfer case, tranny, and a lot of other stuff lol. Not all was dropped though[emoji57], I managed to hoist on more than I took off, including rear main seal, new water pump, thermostat, front wheel well covers, new radiator, rear hatch button, etc. "The sightseeing stuff" if you will, while you're there you might as well check out...

  10. Having gone through some transmission issues recently, my thoughts go to the shift solenoids. Hard to really put all my chips on any particular path I might offer, but if you got a new radiator because the tranny cooler leaked, and or milkshake or worse was found in your transmission, if perhaps you don't know how long it had been running that way when you started having issues,(maybe you were on some logging road when it first gave out). I'm going to suggest you might need to have your transmission looked at. You can test your solenoids, and a host of other things which will cause you to learn a bunch about the true state of your aging Pathfinder and vehicle maintenance and diagnostics along they way. You could save time by taking it to a professional. If the tranny is the main concern, or perhaps tranny related, having them diagnose the transmission puts the job closer to a rebuild financially and physically so you might as well save/rebuild/replace. But of course you should have the evidence to support it. It's always tough to end up at such extremes, but if it needs it, it needs it and deserves concern. I thought it the best of both worlds from my recent experiences. Professionally rebuilt tranny/learned a thing or 22 about my current dd. (fsm also an "interesting" read. haha.) It's great when/if you can get on top of it, but mileage will vary. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk

  12. I will definitely look again for a breather line. I checked the transfer case and it was low. Previous owner took it to a place that put gear oil in(based on receipt) I drained it and put in atf. The gear oil did kinda sorta look like the stuff that poured out on the road. I'm going to drain and refill transmission fluid tomorrow. I'll probably drain the transfer case once more as kind of a flush. After changing front and rear diff oil, engine oil and filter, transfer case and fuel filter I took it out and put it in 4wd HI and LO and I could hear it engage and it seemed to be working properly. I got out several times to look underneath and there were no leaks. I know the cooler lines aren't kinked from being under there all day. I'll check for a clog tomorrow while it's drained and I'm replacing the transmission filter and whatnot. Turning out much better than my initial thoughts of a dead transfer case! Go Pathy Go!

  13. Well I just got back from making a fluid and parts run. I plan to check the transfer case for oil first and go from there. I've been reading the service pretty heavily this past day and I'm considering taking the Horde in to a dealer so they can see if there are any 4WD codes. Doing the on board diagnostic yielded nothing so I'm curious if theirs would be able to provide any info. Other items I will be getting on today include changing front and rear diff oil, engine oil and filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, and checking power valve screws.
