    The headlight on the drivers side goes out while driving, and the headlight on the passenger side only works on dim.

There is a short somewhere and check all the connections and you could have actually gotten a bad bulb sometimes the manufacturer messes up

2005 nissan pathfinder gearbox valve body

Don't ever purchase a Nissan newer than a 2004. They are complete junk. I have an 05 Pathfinder that had all the records. I purchased this around 72,000. My wife & I have driven it for about 15k miles and have had that vehicle in the shop multiple times. Right off the bat, the vehicle had a leak that cost me 1200. While on a road trip, an easy fix but the thermostat went bad, $200. Among other things, Currently it is sitting down at my local trasmission shop and needs the valve body replaced- $1600. research Nissan before they take advantage of you by selling an overpriced vehicle that they consider top of the line but start having trouble around 100k, right when the extended warrenty is up.

I have a 1991 Nissan Pathfinder the passenger side headlight will not come on but there is power and if I plug the bulb into the drivers side it lights. I have checked the fuses under the hood and they are...

if it's like a Quest, the relay on the passenger fender controls the left headlight and vice versa.

Could also be the headlight switch, I have seen that too.

If it is a hydraulic clutch, find the reservoir and top it up with fluid and then you will have to find the bleeder screw and bleed the clutch. It is the same process as bleeding brakes. Not sure on these vehicles where the bleed screw is but in most cases it is on the transmission. It can be easily found if you follow the line from the clutch master cylinder to the transmission it should be close to where the line goes into the transmission.

1997 nissan pathfinder shuts off right after starting

There is a relay on the rh passenger side kick panel above the automatic transmission module that is controlled by the ECU through the MAF sensor that controls your fuel to the engine so the air / fuel mixture is correct. I fixed a pathfinder one time with a similar stalling problem.
