Hey hey new member here in the Graham Washington area. Anyone local to me want to do nissan stuff?  Hahaha. Anyway, i have been reading about cars for years obsessively but am new to wrenching on things. Any help tips and comments appreciated. I have an all nissan lineup in my household currently with my pretty rare 93 NX2000 (sapphire blue), 95 pathfinder SE-v6 (forest green), 2004 Xterra se-v6 (yellow), and last but not least is our 2008 Altima with the 2.5 4cyl motor and a CVT “shudders in disgust” (white).   I am looking at trying to get together with local Nissan Nuts to wrench, talk, learn, and play with out in the woods. lol. Thanks for having me!!

Just saying hi. Just moved to Australia and after looking at a few cheaper 4wds I ended up with a 2001 Tiv6 pathfinder. Its not in bad nick, couple bumps, couple rust spots. But mechanically it seems great.

 

Was intending to put a 2in lift on it but to my surprise it had 1 fitted already with king springs and shocks less than 12 months old. Score.

 

After some ideas floating around my head, plan is to turn it into a day/ weekend camper. A dual battery setup with fridge and draws will be fitted. As far as offroad gear goes, I won't be going mad. It has the factory alloy bull bar fitted and a non descipt bash plate fitted as well.

 

All ill be fitting will be additional lights, recovery points from and rear as well as a roof tent setup. As well as all the required recovery gear.

Hello all,

 

Picked up a 1997 Pathfinder XE, manual transmission, about a month ago. It's my first 4x4 and will be moving us from Virginia to Colorado next month. Previous owner put 31" tires on, but didn't add a lift or get wheels with the right backspace. So there is some rubbing right now when the steering is turned all the way. Overall pretty happy with it so far and looking forward to getting it fixed up and out on some trails. 

 

One of the first things I had to do was replace the coolant recovery tank. They initially sent me one that didn't fit (although the sticker on it says it fits all pathfinders 96-04/QX-4 97-03). Might see if someone on here is interested in it.

Hello - new member in the southern part of heaven (North Carolina).  Have a 1995 Pathfinder - SE.  Bought it with 3 miles on it - just turned 307K -- and may be time to put a lift kit on it and let the "old girl' have some off road fun.  Look forward to connecting, helpful hints, etc.

Just ran across this forum. Hoping i can learn a few things. I am  kind of new to owning a Pathfinder/Teranno. I've had many Nissans over the years, 520, 620, 720, D21, Sentra, A60 first Gen Titan, currently own a 2nd gen Titan XD and now I found a JDM Nissan Teranno R50 R3mR 4x4 with the Td27Ti engine. This is my first small diesel. I was a Nissan dealer tech for 17 years and for the next 18 I have worked at Nissan North America factiry as an engineering technologist. My only real experience with a pathfinder was on the USA version from what the customers brought in. I have a lot of things I would like to do to mine as time and money allows, and that was a long time ago. Hopefully I can get get back up to speed.
