2001 Pathfinder - hard starting - a lot of cracking to start...

My 2001 pathfinder has always started immediately for over four years, recently (past 2 weeks) I have had to crank it over five or so times before it starts - then it runs perfectly. It is very strong when it is turning over. I just spent $524.00 for diagnostic works new plugs and a new o2 sensor. There are 88,000 miles on it. It is a 3.5 SE 4x4. Any ideas...
Very Sincerely, Thank you for your consideration

In the rear cargo area you pull the back plastic strip that runs around where your hatch latches and pull the carpet FROM the rear right to the front left of the cargo area until you see the round/square panel with 4 10mm bolts.  That is the cover that you remove to get to your pump without having to pull your gas tank.  be sure to label your fuel lines.

If you lift the hand brake you should find an adjustment nut (I think it is 10MM). Tighten that and you should be good to go. Be careful, it doesn't take much to adjust - turn gradually/slowly.

i hope i was able to help you with your problem! tc!

Most Chrysler cars do have an anti-theft system that can cut out the engine.

I would call the service department, with your VIN handy, and see if yours was equipped with one, and what you need to reset it.

If that isn't the problem, your EGR valve might be bad, or the sensor for it. I've seen a lot of cars where if either the valve itself, or the sensor are malfunctioning, the car won't run properly.

I would also check your MAF and IAC, as those can cause the car to not run.

If you can, get an OBDII code scanner, and pull the codes from your car, they might give you a more specific place to look. (Most parts stores will let you take one home, you put a deposit down, and get it back when you bringthe scanner back to them)

I recently bought a 95 3 liter V6 pathfinder. The engine runs fine (for 154K miles) for about 20 minutes or so then starts to lose power and seriously misfire. Let it sit a few hours and then it will run...

Sounds like a cracked coil. Once the heat gets to it the fire goes everywhere. Run it into a dark garage and with it running, open the hood and watch for sparks.

1998 Nissan Pathfinder won't start cracks but won't start. It has done this before but would start after awhile. I have notice when driving it would start to loss power and RPM go down then goes back up...

There are many possibilities, but the cheapest and first place to start is a simple tune up, which includes, spark plugs, air filter and fuel filter. These are listed in the order of most important, and any of the three could cause your problem. If these three have not been changed in over a year, definately start here. Hope this helps and have a great weekend :O) Peter
