I have an 08 V8 that's a CPO. I'm coming up on the 100K miles and I took the advice of another forum member and stopped by my local dealership yesterday to see if they would replace the radiator based upon the possibility of leaking into the transmission while still under warranty. They took the pathfinder overnight and were doing overall inspection of the vehicle to see what they could/need to be replaced under warranty. Today they called and they are replacing a few seals and the auto belt tensioner. No luck on the radiator. They said there does not seem to be any cross contamination of the fluid. They had to order the belt tensioner so I should have the Pathfinder back tomorrow.

I just added some cross bars for added cargo capability. I'm like going camping with my family and friends. Got these genuine OEM Nissan Cross Bars at a nice deal online and I'm really happy with my purchase https://www.nissanpartsprime.com/oem/ni ... it-pa.html

lately this thread has picked up a bit in energy.
Keep 'em coming fellas!

In past month:
I got a drain and refill for the tranny and the rusty rear diff cover taken off by my guy.

derusted with a wire brush.. repainted with anti rust covering and then of course the rear diff fluid re filled when it got back on the car.

Also brakes bled and new front pads so the braking feels much better now.
New Hankook Dynapro ATM 3 weeks ago dont hurt either.
New top hose ( the one coming from the engine). Easiest to get to and also most stressed hose since it carry the hottest coolant and is most likely to be fingered.
Partial drain and fill of the radiator with Nissan Blue coolant.

Oil change on Saturday with Mobil 1 5w-30 High milage extended drain. usually an expensive oil was on sale at walmart for 25.50 dollars per 5 t jug!
Topped it off with a Mobil 1 extended capacity oil filter.
Adjusted the fill level so its just a tad below maximum.
Cleaned the engine bay.

Also
The battery is 6 months old AGM dry cell Bosch Platinum, this truck WILL start in the winter no matter what!

Gave mine a good clean today. The good thing about the British southern weather is its still 10 degrees and dry this week. Poor truck looked filthy, but al clean and shines again.

Ive ordered some carbon look door sill strips to try and pretty up the sides especially when the door door rubber comes and fitted.

I supplanted all my inside arch lights with LEDs. Simply trusting that the sun will go down so I can perceive how splendid they are.

Hello from New Zealand,

My name is Mike Bishop and I have been working as a Junior Tech Assistant in a company that provides services about Automotive. I don’t know if Mentioning the company is allowed or not. LOL.

I found one of the thread of this forum on google last night and I really like the way you guy helped each other. I feel like I also should make an account here, maybe I can help somebody. Or at least get some updated information about Automotive.
