Question about Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

I have a 1988 4x4 Nissan Pathfinder that makes a squeaking noise when I let my foot off the accelerator. I'm not stepping on the break either, just freewheeling. It sounds like a steady squeak with each rotation of the tires, but I'm not sure where its coming from exactly

I'm guessing either a belt getting worn, or a little rust build up on brake rotors, or warning tabs on brakes rubbing on rotors. Have someone walk along both sides, of the vehicle while you drive slow down the street, or laneway, they should be able to pinpoint it better for you that way.

2000 Nissan Pathfinder, makes loud squeaking noise while driving between 0-35mph, bought a new timing belt a year ago and had AC belt replaced recently, squeaking is so loud it is almost disturbing to...

Very often the power steering belt can cause this noise if it is loose or just worn. The pump itself can cause a noise check and make sure it is full of fluid.

I have a 1998 Nissan Pathfinder. When the truck

you could possibly have a throttle positioning sensor going bad... you could also check to see if you have an idle air control valve.... that would also make the rpm go up while the foot is on brake, the engine is hunting for fuel... hope this helps

Propshaft noise

Propeller (or driveshaft) will transmit noise check the joints at both ends for binding or rust (best done with it out of the car)

Steady squeaking noise after taking foot off accelerator

sounds like you have a pad rubbing on a disk/rotor, if you jolt the brakes does the noise go away? if so it's probably a pad loose
