Question about 1997 Nissan Pathfinder
I have a 1997 Nissan that is leaking coolant from UNDER the engine. I had it to a mechanic last night, he added coolant and told me to go home put cardboard under it to see if it was leaking. I did just that. It is leaking. I just took a flashlight out there and looked under the car, I can see the leak and it's under the engine on the bottom along a plate/metal area running horizontal. The mechanic is now out of town for 3 days. I have a baby that I take to chemotherapy treatment every 3 days over 50 miles away, added to that my hisband is stationed in Afghanistan and I can't reach him about this problem! I'm located in Seattle. Any suggestions? - Heather

replace the front oil seal. first i would clean the engine with purple power (degrease etc.) then look at the engine and make sure the leak is not coming from above like possibly the valve cover gasket or from the oil sending unit. try to tighten the bolts on the valve cover and even the oil pan. you never know, you may get lucky. i don't know where you are but front seals are cheap but the labor on the job is what costs you.

Well the head gasket job will cover the valve cover gasket ( you have to do one to get to the other) Bring it to a repair shop its about a $1500 job.

you can purchase a chilton or haynes service book for around 10-15 bucks, it has lots of good info and will save you alot of headaches. however intake gaskets are cheap and one solution would be to remove the intake to get a better look, its an easy process and only takes about 15 minutes
