Re: Security indicator light staying on while car is running

Best thing to do would be to get the security system code read with a scan tool. You'd have to go to a dealer or independent shop unless you know someone with a capable scan tool.

Re: Headlights

2005-2007 were the same as the Frontiers for a number of years. In 2008, Nissan extended the nose 3-inches, giving it a steeper rake to the grill as well as the headlamps.

Re: Custom Wrap?

I've pondered wrapping mine in the ol' Datsun/Nissan red, white & blue pattern they used on the baja trucks or like the paint jobs of the Brock Racing Datsuns. Of course, that would take money I don't have!

Re: Need to replace cross bars

It's probably be better and cheaper to get your buddy to make some if he has the ability to do so. If he can MIG weld, I would get them done in aluminum to lessen the weight on the roof.

Re: I have to Start Driving To Get The Front Climate Control Blower To Come On...

Perhaps the contacts are failing in the motor and once you start driving, the air coming in starts to turn the cage fan and sorta "bump starts" the motor to get it turning? Just a guess.. If you can duplicate it not working, try tapping on the blower motor a couple of times and see if it starts work...

Re: MAF sensor issues.... Stumped

It's VDC-Vehicle Dynamic Control. When they illuminate with the CEL, start by checking codes for the ECM. When the ECM detects and engine management problem, it will disable the traction control system, which causes the VDC/SLIP warning lights to illuminate to let you know the system is disabled. Ma...

Re: Wheel Bearing Hub

Rockauto carries Timken and a lot of other brands. I did purchase a Beck~Arnley rear hub assembly for my 2008 and it only lasted a couple of years. I was disappointed because they are usually pretty good with their parts, but not in this case. There was no part numbers or brand names on the hub, so ...

Re: Transmission all of a sudden won't shift properly

The factory ATF is NissanMatic Type "D" ATF. To top if off, Dexron III/Mercon ATF can be used, although it's not recommended if you were doing a full service. Most synthetic ATF's are fine for full servicing, including Valvoline Maxlife Full-synthetic ATF and Castrol Transmax Import Multi-vehicle AT...

Re: Gas cap tether (aka "gas cap strap") fix

Sorry to hear it didn't fit your 2012. It's interesting because aftermarket caps show the same part numbers for 2005 through 2012. If you still want the tether, Motorad sells the whole cap with a tether and clips for around $5 at Rockauto. The part number is: MOTORAD MGC817T.

Re: V6 to V8 front brake conversion

I can help you out; I did it to my 2006 LE. All you need is the front brake calipers w/ brackets, pads and rotors for a 2008-2012 Pathfinder V8. It's a bolt-on mod as the steering knuckles, brake backing plates,caliper mount bolts, hub assembly and even the brake hoses are all the same. FYI, the rea...

Re: Gibson 12210 Exhaust on V6 4.0L 2009 Pathfinder

V6 exhaust is pretty much the same from 05-12. The "Y" changed a little from 07-08, but the parts are all interchangeable.

Can one run o2 sensor spacers to mitigate that lean condition and codes?
The O2 spacers on the rear sensors help with the catalyst efficiency codes from triggering, but it will have no effect on the lean condition nor the "system lean" codes that may occur. It's also an issue on the 5.6L V8.

Re: Any high mileage R51's out there with little problems?

That's a pretty rare occurrence on the R51's. That's good to hear. I heard about it on the Xterra forums and I was getting concerned since its same powertrain.. also conversely if its rare on R51 that means its also rare on Frontier and on Xterra. I can't say it "never" happens, as I do hear of a c...

Glad to hear you got her thru so many miles! :D I always worry about the cats.. if the front ones go they could spout particles into the engine and ruin it.. So I am toying the idea of punching them out myself. Of course I am only at 148,000 Oh, and welcome to ThePath!!! :lol: That's a pretty rare ...
