2005 Pathfinder Heat Flow problem

I have a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder with 50K miles, Heat comes out of trhe vents only when I press on the gass or I am moveing. As soon as the truck is idle the airflow slowly gets cold again. 2006 Pathfinder LE heat flow problem. 60k miles. The A/C front and rear blows cold air even at warmest setting unless the vehicle is moving. When the vehicle stops the air in the front goes cold again.
Side note: the rear air stays cool whether the vehicle is stopped or moving.

I am having/had the same problem. My rear heater has not worked the last 2 winters, still trying to figure that one out. But I think I solved the front heat problem myself. The heater was blowing cold air while idling and hot air when the car was moving.

I jacked up the front of the vehicle, took the cap off of the reserve tank for the radiator, turned the car on and ran the heat (AC off) for 15 minutes. This is supposed to release any air bubbles in the coolant system and I did see air bubbles emerge as I was watching (this might be normal occurance, I'm far from a mechanical expert). Anyway, this did not immediately solve the problem, still blowing cold air as it sat there idling after 15 minutes. Dejected, I put the cap back on, lowered the vehicle and resigned myself to taking it to a dealer.

But a funny thing happened the next day, the coolant level was a lower (no leaks on the floor) so I filled up, and sure enough, when I started the car and let it warm up a little, hot air started coming out of the heater!!!

As far as my wife knows, I fixed the problem for the price of a bottle of coolant, so I am a hero...but at first I thought it didn't work. Here we are a month later and still blowing warm air and haven't had to replace any more coolant...the internet is a wonderful thing!

Hope this works for you, and I hope I can figure out my rear heater problem as well.

Change your thermostat and check the water level in the radiator. If it is low on water this can happen.

Fuel air mixture too rich on a 98 nissan pathfinder


My guess would be a fuel injector or fuel pressure regulator problem, or a Mass air flow sensor.
The O2 sensor does not come into play until the engine has run for a couple of minutes.
Is the check engine light on ?

Heat not getting hot in my nissan 2007 pathfinder


As long as there is air coming from the vents, i would assume that you have a bad thermostat. The thermostat is located at the end of the top radiator hose where it bolts to the engine.

Take a look at Nissan Technical Service Bulletin NTB05-15b. Title = "Rattle Noise From Vias Power Valve Actuator / Intake Manifold Collector" This appears to describe your problem exactly. I have the same problem with my 2005 Xterra and I am going to try the recommended fix myself at home.
