  1. Hey all, Just scanned my 2002 Nissan pathfinder LE since the check engine light has been on/blinking for quite some time now. I posted previously about this but I gave little detail, so this time I come bearing codes. The codes are 'P0304 Cylinder 4 Misfire Detected' and 'P0740 A/T TCC Solenoid Circuit Malfunction'. I am by no means a car guy so I don't know what these mean, so I came here for assistance. I probably have tools to repair most things but I'm on the edge about buying parts for repairs because I could use that money to save for a new car instead (I don't know if I will bring my pathfinder to college). But if the parts aren't too pricey I'll try and fix the car up. So far, I've received suggestions that I should swap cylinders from another to #4, replace spark plugs (although my dad replaced plugs fairly recently), and even to use a compression tester (?). So, would a beginner be able to tackle these repairs (P0304 & P0740) or should I take it into the shop instead? Extra unnecessary info: It might be worth noting that my dad owned the car for about 20 years so he knows some repairs but not the specific codes that came up. I've done research on the codes in the forums here and saw that there could be a pressure leak in one of the cylinders (?). Images of the scans are attached (in case you can't see them, the only additional info are parts that the scan recommended I buy for the repair). Thanks, Cameron Sprinkle
  2. Hi all, Hang with me here as this is going to get a little wordy. I got a hand-me-down 2002 LE pathfinder from my dad and lets just say it has a couple problems . I'm not entirely sure what specific issues there are with it but my dad took it to the mechanic a while back and they said that there may be an issue with one of the ignition coils in the engine(?) and that it would be somewhere in the back side of the engine so it would be hard to reach/replace. The pathfinder still drives fine but its a little rough and when its idling, it sort of "chugs" in the sense that you can feel the inconsistency of vibrations in the seat as well as hearing the engine noise inconsistency (I don't really know how to describe it, sorry). They also mentioned that the catalytic converter may be clogged, potentially making the ride choppier and preventing full acceleration. Since I live in WA state, I could technically just straight-pipe the car but I have no idea how to do that so I'd have to bring it in to a shop, and I'm not sure if they'd even do that for me. I think we have one of those readout displays you plug into the dash to diagnose problems, but last time we scanned the pathfinder, I think it said something about ignition coil #4 being faulty so my dad went in and replaced it but the readout still kept the same error on re-scan. Ignition coils #1 and #3 have also been replaced recently by my dad, but he also said that the spark plugs should be replaced (not sure what effect that would have). I have asked a friend of mine who repairs cars and he said that there's a common problem of the cylinder leaking pressure (?) which I am unable to validate as true or not but I figured it could be a possibility with my car. Anyways, I've basically just been handed this car with quite a few quirks to it and I don't want to spend so much money to the point where I could have just bought a used car instead, so I'm looking for a bit of help and/or guidance on what to do TL;DR - Catalytic converter clogged (diagnosed by mechanic), trying to replace ignition coil #4, and a couple other issues worth mentioning that I am not able to fully describe in-depth Thanks, csprinkle p.s. I apologize if I am not using common car vocabulary to describe these issues as I am no car expert myself
  3. I've been researching what shocks to get for my 4" lifted QX4 and I've settled on the 5165 but I'm not sure what bushings i need to fit into it. I read in some posts that it is a necessary step. And its understandable of course since the bushings are unsupported sizes for the r50. Is there a part number anyone could provide me for 5/8 bushings that fit the 5165 25-261400's? I saw that Jax99 ran that model. Also are there any inconveniences or tradeoffs anyone experiences from running the 5165s with the external reservoir? Things like whether or not the tube rubs the tire. My front end is spacer lifted 2.5" and my rear has LR 9448/9449 coils providing 4" of lift. I had looked at the 5165 25-187748 because it has a 17.93" compressed length which is very close to some 5125's (33-185569) I've seen some people running that have a 17.91" compressed length (with 11.8" travel). However the 25-187748 5165 has 17.93" compressed length AND 13.1" of travel. Which is quite an upgrade. Not to mention both of these shocks use 5/8 bushings for both top and bottom. Is there something I'm missing on why people aren't using the 25-187748 5165's? I saw one or two posts about people using the 25-261400's. Those come stock with 12mm eyes. To me at least it doesn't quite add up on why people would buy shocks that have incorrectly sized bushings that they have to switch, over just getting a model that has 5/8 eyes to start that, (to my knowledge) work on the r50 out of the box. But there may be something I'm not aware of. The way I see it, the 33-185569's seem objectively better due to the higher travel. And the fact that it has the same mounting length as other shocks I've seen r50 owners run means i know that the length is supported. And the 5/8 fitting seems perfect as I wouldn't have to switch the eye out. This is the parts+size chart I used - https://www.shockwarehouse.com/pages/bilstein-b8-series-measurements Sorry if this is a big information dump and a lot to ask but any info helps. I appreciate anything. Thanks in advance
  4. Live in new york and have a catalytic converter that is causing an engine light to come on making it unable to pass a new york state emmission test. Let me know if anyone has any info on either getting new cats or installing cheapers one that will work. Any cites or link will work too.
