While cranking the engine I would see voltage jump to 17V at what appeared to be regular intervals. I then checked to see what voltage was leaving what appears to be an integrated coil and saw 11. But times, competition, and consumer tastes change. Figure on a couple hundred dollars in repair every year or so. Great Suv — its Fun. Semi-tubular running boards and black roof racks enhance the sport-utility image. Yeah i just went and looked at my '98 Pathfinder and you are right, i didn't even notice when i replaced my distributor cap.
This may sound silly but did you check all your fuses? The spare tire is mounted under the body for streamlined aerodynamics and increased cargo utility. There was a touch of carbon dust along the rotor contact and the rotor 'blade' has a few small scorch notches in the leading edge but not what I would consider to be serious or bad scorching - though it could be enough I suppose. Also a distributor cap with a missing carbon button which rides on the top of the rotor may be missing. I think that it could use new spark plug wires as the ones in it are factory. It has lots of room for people and cargo, and is very versatile. It's roomy for its size and easy to get into or out of even without running boards.
All buttons and switches work as intended and convenient. Mines at 113k miles and paid 2 grand for it. If it's dirty, you won't be able to start the engine. Could be a little more comfortable on long trips. Completing the interior package is a user-friendly instrument panel and comfortable seating for all passengers. You can't have it all.
I ended up trying to drive 35 miles with an overheated engine late at night on the highway. The 1998 Pathfinder introduces one new exterior color, Sierra Silver, in addition to previously available colors of Cayenne Red, Neptune Blue, Mahogany Pearl, Sahara Beige, Rain Forest Green Pearl, Super Black and Cloud White. A well-designed instrument panel, tilt-adjustable steering wheel, and useful storage areas in the doors, seat backs, and console make for a good traveling environment. I would like to be able to get it started and home before we get some bad weather tomorrow. Not sure if that is contributing to the problem or not as I don't see any visible signs of damage to them and the contacts inside of the boots are extremely shiny. I use it as my daily driver and enjoy the ride everyday.
I then decided to attempt to replace the 2 spark plugs that are in between the intake runners and noticed that they looked to be a bit on the white side but not too terrible not like they were running super lean or anything. However, being handy with a wrench, I dedided to replace a few maintenance components like rubber bushings, tie rods, and ball joints. Submit Company releases or Product News stories to. So it sounds like you are getting spark to the distributor but not to the plugs, and the rotor turns. Anyone have any suggestions or anything that I might be missing? Invisible deteriorated ex-pavement at the bottom of a new pond on the freeway was handled in stride. Road trips, camping trips the pathfinder could do it all.
Every Pathfinder comes with a standard power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering system for ease of maneuverability and a tight turning radius. Everything else is working fantastic!!! Thank you so much Nissan!!! The Pathfinder is a thoroughly modern car, er, truck, with a firm but comfortable ride. They do go bad, Keep us updated. Found this gem on a local site the sellers had really loved the truck and it was obvious they had done their fair share of upkeep on the truck. We always use 5w-30 Valvoline Motor Oil with Lucas protection.
Put 3 sets of tires on it. So far we having replace the radiator. The new version integrates the three nostrils into the grille, and the trick rear door latches are still used. I bought the Pathfinder 3 years ago with around 167k miles on it. No rust appear on body so far. Its now 2016 still have it and now has 240,000. Same issue I was having before - strong crank but no ignition.
If no spark or weak spark, i would look into replacing the coil. The most commonly referred to information displays are centrally located in the driver's field of vision and switches are varied in size and shape to minimize control confusion. The previous owner mentioned they towed a boat occasionally with ease. I am not sure how long ago those parts had been replaced. The only real catch it to make sure that you index everything so that you can properly align the new distributor and get it in the same position as the old one and verifying timing with a timing light is a plus, but if you index things correctly checking it is just something to put your mind at ease. The Pathfinder's extremely flat torque curve - more than 90 percent of the engine torque is available in the 1,500 - 1,800 rpm range - offers increased responsiveness, off-road control and a towing capacity of 5,000 lbs.
The bicycle fit with room to spare and the liftgate kept my head dry. I just looked at an xterra the other night with this issue at a dealership. I've tried testing it but not sure that what I'm finding is showing that it is good or faulty because I cannot find any diagnostic procedures for the distributor or coil in the Pathfinder. I read a couple stories about the same as yours but, nobody ever came back and said what they did to fix the problem. Check to see if its on the recall list for fuel pump grounding harness. The original Pathfinder had unique, sporty styling, and made a good reputation for itself.
I just read another post and the guy was saying that the distributor bearings are know to fail, and to test this pull the distributor and turn it by hand to see if it's hard or rough to turn, if that's the case replace the distributor. Distributor cap, battery new hoses and belts including the timing belt. There will be minor repairs with age rear trailing arm bushings need to be replaced every 60-80K , but mechanically, it is as bullet proof as can be. Well I have some further revelation: I pulled the 3 easiest spark plugs while at work the other day and they looked to be pretty fouled up and had the slight smell of gas 1 of them might have been slightly wet. The Nissan Pathfinder utilizes a 5-link rear suspension design with coil springs and shocks that are placed outboard to enhance stability and increase control of body roll. Given the potholed, frost-heaved, poorly-patched nature of many American roads today, heavy-duty suspension components, extra ground clearance, and skid plates make sense in the city or the outback.
