    Well for folks that are not aware when you have a oil change. Dealers don't check the transfer case fluild like you would think. I assumed this was being done because some quick oil change places this is on their check sheet. Anyway mine had dryed out causing thi to go out. So ask for them to check this when you have a oil change. Had a conservation with the Nissan service manager. I guess we can chaulk this up as they didn't ask I didn't know to ask. Anyway they dropped the price considerly for a transfer case from a parted vehicle from some where else. Cost difference new around 2800. dollars versus 750. for one that they found off of a 2003 Pathfinder parted out. Costly lesson.....Huh............Thanks for trying anyway. William P.S. Wish I had some type of recourse,but I checked the check off list doesn't show fluids for transfer case.

HOW DO YOU DISENGAGE 4WD 1997 PATHFINDER


Hi Diamond, These vehicles do sometimes have a problem in disengaging the 4 X 4. Start up and drive it backwards and forwards slowly (3 or 4 miles per hour will do). Gently put pressure on the lever in the direction of the 2 high and after some time it will change. (If nothing has been damaged inside the box, which is unlikely) Regards John

I am trying to fill my transmission fluid on a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder 4x4 with a 5 speed manual transmission-where is the fill hole located? What fluid should I use? Is Dextron II ok?


A 5-speed Nissan Pathfinder uses a different type of transmission fluid from an automatic; therefore Dexron II is NOT okay. This vehicle uses "gear oil" --- specifically 75W-90 GL-4 if you have low mileage. 80W-90 or 85W-140 can be used if you are up there in mileage (closing in on 200K?).

This type of service needs to be performed from underneath the vehicle.

If you have a set of ramps, now would be a good time to get them out of the tool shed. Exercise care in driving up the ramps as they can be tricky with stick shift vehicles. Once on the ramp, put wheel chocks on the rear wheels, put the e-brake on, and if possible, keep it in gear (I use reverse).

Even without ramps, there is sufficient ground clearance from this SUV for you to check your transmission fluid. But then again, the more working room, the better.

On the transmission housing, you will find two plugs. One is at the bottom (drain plug), and one is higher up on the driver's side (fill plug). If you wish to add gear oil, simply open up the fill plug on the upper driver's side. If gear oil starts to seep out, don't bother adding any --- it's full. If no fluid comes out, stick your pinky in the hole and try to reach down and see if you can touch the top of the fluid level. Top it up, then. Gear oil usually comes in quart containers that have a long, pointed tip that allows you to "squirt" the stuff into the fill hole. Convenient, no? If the fluid level is so low that you can't even touch it, you might want to consider draining what's left (why add new gear oil to old sludgy gear oil? Otherwise, fill it up until it starts to seep out of the hole; then screw the fill plug back in.

I hope this helps; take care of your SUV.

88 Nissan Pathfinder heard a loud popping noise under the front suspension of the car while driving and then a winding down noise as i slowed down


It could be a blown seal or some messed up bearings on the hub. Take it to a mechanic and DRIVE CAREFULLY! The wheel could literally come off it the bearings aren't working and overheat!

Timming Belt


be very carefull if you are doing this yourself,it is critical to get the timing marks just right or you could do some serious damage to the engine.You must turn the engine by hand with a socket or spanner on the bottom pulley until the mark on it is lined up with the marker on the casing that surrounds it.Once this is done do the same with the top pulley,the mark on this may just be a small indentation that lines up with an arrow,once this is done you can then put on the belt and make sure it is tensioned properly.Once again,these settings are critical and if you are unsure DONT attempt it.

Nissan Pathfinder has himming/hissing sound


Check for an exhaust leak if it is more hissing than humming. If humming, I would suspect the u-joint. Since it is rear wheel drive, we have drive shafts and the one that goes from the tranny to the front differential may just be your problem, especially if it were sitting for a LONG time and possibly corrosion or rust is a factor. More than likely, if the u-joint is making noise, it is degraded rollers in the bearing of the u-joint and will need to be replaced before either siezing or breaking.
