20 Most Recent 2008 Nissan Pathfinder Questions & Answers

So you have no spark when the engine is cranking? If so, you have identified the ignition system as the problem. You need a diagram of how the ignition works on that model. Things to check are the Ignition Control Module (igniter), the crank position sensor (this tells the computer when to send spark to the plugs.), and whether the coil pack is getting battery power to the coils.

What do you mean for ABS or speed?

Do you hear it make noise but not unlatch? Check the owners manual to see if there is a bypass to unlatch it when this happens, most cars have a plug you remove to trip the latch.

This can happen if your water pump is failing. You will get the most heat when your water pump is forcing the fluids to circulate within the engine block.

I am thinking that battery does not have enough capacity to turn engine over fast enough for crank sensor to see (ooh yeah they have a min rpm too)
as with most computers today lots of things going on all at once like counting 15 rpm of crank shaft before turning on fuel injectors

Auto club techs have special tools that can reach around the window and unlock in such a situation. They have done so for me.

This is normal for internal combustion engine. For every gallon of fuel burned it can produce a pint of water.

2008 Nissan... | Answered on Apr 15, 2015

Clear water coming out of the tailpipe is NORMAL! Of the many by-products of combustion, water is one of them. During the chemical reaction of combustion with a hydrocarbon, hydrogen is "freed" along with carbon and oxygen. There symbols are H, O, and C. The water molecule's structure is HOH or H2O. The main by- product is carbon monoxide or CO.

Anyway if the water looks like clear water, that's normal.
