Master Cylinder ( maybe leak? )
windcalmer posted a topic in 90-95 WD21 PathfindersI was getting my 94 Pathfinder back up and running, replacing belts, etc. The brakes had a leak back when it was running, but I never had time to track it down. The leak was small and would need new fluid added every two weeks or so. So we bleed the brakes and everything works fine. We check all the connections, and hoses and nothing is wet. No wetness around any of the calipers either. Then I notice there is fluid leaking out of a hole on the master cylinder. (Attached photo shows were the hole is). So I go looking for a new master cylinder and notice that around half o f the photos I see have that hole totally covered up. So my question is could a screw have been in that hole and fell out causing this slow leak? Would covering that hole prevent the leak?
Intermittent issue - sounds like a vacuum leak?
willaay posted a topic in The GarageHey everyone, I'm new to the forum but have lurked for answers for a while. This issue has happened to me twice so far that it left me stalled in the road and I'm not sure exactly how to pinpoint it. I bought a 95 Pathfinder with auto transmission in November and in January for seemingly no reason the RPMs seemed to drop really low after I had been running errands and left the car parked for a couple of minutes. This happened after the engine had been warm and driving for a while. When I was coming to a stop at a light, the car stalled. I was able to start it no problem but the car would keep stalling unless I kept the revs up. Luckily I was close to home and when I got there I checked the codes and none showed up. After I checked the codes the car seemed fine and drove fine for a week and I brought it in for an unrelated timing belt replacement. It's been a couple weeks since then and the car has been fine until yesterday which was the first day I had used the AC (maybe since the initial stall). The car sounded like having the AC on was using a lot of power: some RPM changes, at a stop it would kind of 'lurch' a little until finally the revs got pretty irregular and the car stalled again. Again, I could start it fine and I turned off the AC and drove home and by the time I got there it seemed to be totally fine. Today I tried to replicate the issue by just running the car in drive (but at a stop) for a while with the AC on. The car eventually started running odd and eventually the RPM irregularities returned. Not only that but the car took 2-3 times to start only when warm and I've been noticing a weird no-crank start on some trips lately but haven't been able to pinpoint a cause. A video of the irregular idle is here: https://streamable.com/sh1lh3 Anyway sorry for the wall of text but I want to take a long trip soon and don't want to worry about this weirdness. It sounds like a vacuum leak but could that be so intermittent? I've sprayed some carb cleaner on the lines earlier today and noticed some rev changes but can't be certain if they were accurate - when the engine warmed up I couldn't get the spray to change revs.
Leaking fuel line
98fixemup posted a topic in General ForumsHello i recently bought a 98 pathfinder to be fixed up because i am still learning and need something to practice with. I found a fuel leak under my passenger front tire and wish to patch this with a nylon replacement given that this portion is the only portion rusted at all. I found the leak i believe but i dont want to cut the wrong line. Please let me know what line is which from the picture ill provide. Any help is appreciated!
Stock as a clock. 2wd anyone?
Yknotauto posted a topic in General ForumsHey everyone, I'm Doc, I have a 1995 2wd auto 4 door XE with 213350 miles on it. Having trouble finding a leak, my floor boards get wet on the drivers side after a hard rain so I'm stripping the interior now. Any common area to watch out for leaks under the dash or hood cowl area? Also this is a rare find, Its 100 percent unmodified and no rust to see so I dont mind keeping it that way
