  1. How Much will the front bumper be?
  2. Wow that looks awesome! Do you have the final prints for this? Please send them to me when you get a chance. Awesome job, Nice work. Thank you. Breemania!
  3. Thanks man! It took some research when I needed mine, I just couldn't believe the cost of these things, CRAZY! Im glad to save some people some cash, there is no reason why these are so much money at the dealer.
  4. I had This problem with my 1997 Pathfinder 4wd SE I replaced all 4 OXYGEN SENSORS not Cats, there are 4. 2 front and two back. Im pretty sure the rear 2 on the exhust are a three wire type and the front ones in the engine compartment are a 4 wire. ( I'll check when its daylight for you.) If you can manage to do your own crimps you can save a ton of cash. I bought mine on ebay from this guy, the company is global automotive. I used the (BWD) Borg Warner oxygen sensors two years ago and they are still working great! Just Cut the wire and crimp them together, then wrap them in electrical tape or better yet heat shrink! Two months later I also had to replace the Evap cannister, it was Leaking Charcoal in the lines, so also keep that in mind. Here's the link : http://search.stores.ebay.com/GLOBAL-AUTOM...0271212QQsofpZ0 Now they're so cheap you can JUST DO ALL 4! MINT!!! Saved ya BIG BUCKS on this one. Scrool down and find your model. When you put them in don't forget to use anti-seize. "Sparingly on the threads only" Also I sprayed some PB Blaster on them to help get them out. Kinda Rusted! Good Luck, if you have any other questions I can help you with send me your phone # and I'll call ya. Breemania!
  5. Also see my post on Timing Belt Problems. Search Timing Belt. The Solution was to get a strap around the passengers side cam and turn it counter clockwise and line the dots up perfectly and then match to the lines on the belt perfectly, but we already know about the dots. All three must line up perfectly with the belt at TDC. The issue was that the Cam had moved and I did not have it set to TDC at start of the job. when you first try to turn the cam backwards (passengers side) there will be a lot of spring tension and at first it sprang back too far and then I had to turn it clockwise, and then do it again, turning counter clock wise very, very slowly but then I GOT IT! The Strap I used for this was a RED Snap on Oil Filter Change strap. It wraped nicely around the cam sprocket. If any one ever needs help or has any questions on this contact me. If you still have questions send me your phone # and Ill be happy to answer any questions you have and give you a few tips on the job. Breemania
  6. Also make sure the pulley tensioner is adjusted to 5:30 on clock time. Tensioner might not have been right. Also No.1 cylinder is up front on passenger side. Meaning toward the Radiator, passenger side. Make sure to replace the Camshaft seals left and right. Your leaking oil there. I got a full Timing belt kit from Courtsey Nissan in Texas, I got it in two days with fed ex shipping. Best price I know of. Linky : http://www.courtesyparts.com/ To make it easier, here. First, thank you to everyone who replied! The motor fired up and purs like a kitten, better than ever! But now the Crankshaft pulley "Harmonic Balancer" will not go on, it is a brand new one by the way, any ideas on this will be great.

Any Ideas on the Crankshaft pulley? Thank you. Breemania Oh yea BTW the Crankshaft pully that wouldn't fit was aftermarket garbage! I went to Nissan this Morning and Got a new one and it slid on like Butter!
  7. Read my Post on Timing belt Problems. Hopefully you didnt mash the Valves. Be sure to Turn the motor by hand after you have everything lined up. Do this by putting the crankshaft bolt in and turning with 27mm socket and 1/2 ratchet. Remove spark plugs first. This way you will have even resistance and be able to have a better feel. Breemania
  8. HMMMM Thinking about it, That job is a bitch. Your best bet while its apart is to change camshaft Seals 2 L&R Side (Passengers side is almost always leaking) and the main crankshaft seal also. Along with the thermostat and new belts. Im on Long Island NY. How is the truck running and what is the milage? Has the belt ever been changed? Breemania

  11. OK I was in a rush to do the timing belt on the Wifes and Kids "making me nuts " 1997 Pathfinder SE 4WD, I did not set to No. 1 Cylinder TDC. The Question is this How do I get everything lined up correctly now? I dont want to trash the Valves. I know about the dots and how to line them up. I've done this job on my 300 zxt several times over the years but always had it aligned first. Also the belt is off now and the new cam seals are in. Is there any way to be sure? I think the passengers side cam might have moved. Thanks everybody for you help. Breemania
