  1. That's code for alternator going out. Probably the voltage regulator or whatever. It's a hit and miss with remanufactured alternators. I cannot offer any tips or advice since I've never worked on an 02 model other than unplugging the battery first lol.
  2. It's held in place by a woodruff key like the crank pulley. I'm figuring you already have the belt off and what not so you can spray it with some penetrating lubricant and some light taps should work it loose....or wedge something behind it and leverage it out a bit. It's been a while since I've done it...
  3. You sure that pump is bad? How do you know your pump is bad? Did you test it to see if the pump is actually getting power ans actually pumping out fuel? Yoi can disconnect the fuel line feeding to the fuel rail to make sure it's pumping.. the pump should prime for a few seconds when you turn your ignition on ans you should hear your pump click on. I'm using a cheap pump off Ebay for 60 dollars. So far so good. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  4. It could be the ignition switch going bad. You could hot wire it or bypass it to see. I'd check your connections to make sure they're not loose or corroded. Check the voltages too as well as the starter relay.. I had the same issues and replaced the ignition switch and so far no problems. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  5. What i didn't know was that part is different between thr 2wd and 4wd. I did my 4wd conversion and found that out eventually. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  6. Curious, what is your mileage on the truck? Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks for the laugh this morning! Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  8. It was cheaper to just by a new maxima alternator 90A. Bolts right up after you swap out the pulley. I had to file down the OE pulley for clearance (YMMV). Easy 20A upgrade. I still need to upgrade the wiring as it's not cutting it for the occasional winching.
  9. Hahaha. That surging is all too familiar with me. I deal with it on a weekly basis. The later models (94/95) came out with a TSB where they added a pigtail with an external ground to the MAF harness plug to the sensor. Poor ground or corrosion/connectivity will cause that idle surge and stalling when rolling to a stop.
  10. This is done with the engine running? I have really not heard of this. What I have heard done was having the injectors cleaned and flow tested (I've done this) and most folks replace faulty ones as needed/indicated.
  11. Damn. That's a lot of oil. Have you figured out the source?
  12. Edit: crossed the fuel hoses at the pump.. all good now other that the sputtering and missing. Guessing from the bad fuel.. Truck won't start. Fuel related. I prematurely thought it was my junkyard pump going out since my tank is slight rusty. Pulled the pump to see that the pre-filter broke off. Swapped in a new pump and nada. So assumed that the fuel filter is clogged. Pulled the filter and it was dry. Disconnected the line and placed it in a bottle and primed the pump. I hear it prime but nothing is coming out... I'm sure I connected fuel lines back correctly. What am I missing? I turn the ignition on, I hear pump prime and stop. Turn off the key and I hear a click from a relay seconds later.
  13. You can try a bolt extractor for rounded heads or weld an open end wrench to it.
  14. Yep. Rusty tank from sitting too long. Still trying to find a good tank. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  15. Check the small rubber hoses going to the evap canister and the lines going to the fuel pump and tank. You can unplug the door lock timer because it'll try and apply power to the lock actuators if it is malfunctioning. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  16. Well, it was a good run. Junkyard pump's filter disintegrated and killed it. Going to pick a new pump motor off Ebay now. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  17. Nah. No whirring of the pump Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  18. I'm thinking my fuel pump died. I could not get it to start. Normal I'd smell fuel from turning it over, but nada.
  19. It's amazing what a little cleaning and paint can do.
  20. Hey Pam! It's been awhile! Did you get rid of the old pathfinder for new one? I've never personally done it nor have I seen what the r50 compressor looks like, but It should be kind of easy to do. I"m not sure if you have room in the engine bay to pull the pulley off though. Generally, you remove a nut the hold the clutch in. pull that off. get a 3 jaw puller thingamabob to pull the pulley off. crossreference the bearing and press the old bearing out.
  21. Was that you that posted pics of the board on facebook?
  22. Make sure your terminals are not corroded along with the wires. It does seem like your starter is failing. Could also be from bathing in oil and mud which kills the starter faster.

    progress is progress!
  24. Felt like painting the last bit of my bumper brackets. I still need to grind a but to clear the radiator support. I have enough squeaking as it is already so I don't need more. I also am prepping for the 90A alternator swap. My 70 Amp pulley doesn't clear the alternator and will require me to shave the casing or the pulley where it necks down. I'll have to hold off on getting the 150A in for now. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
