Re: nissan pathfinder -service engine soon light on
ALL those codes at once ! When was it last in for service? Haven't recently filled up with gas somewhere different by chance? First thing I'd do is add some fuel additive with moisture remover, and system cleaner, and see what that does, if you can still drive vehicle without too much trouble. What & when exactly did all this start, and what is vehicle doing?

Hi, the code P1140 mens there is a problem with the right side cam position sensor. You will need to replace the sensor, this is a common type of problem and make sure the engine oil is clean and full before you replace it because this can also set the codes. You can use a 5-30w oil, you can use a synthetic oil, change the oil and filter, reset the code and if it comes back on again, then replace the sensor..
failure rate of these sensors is very high .nissan extended the warranty period on these rather than issuing a recall.contact local dealer replacement would almost certainly be under warranty.as for no start there is currently a campaign to replace ecm relays for this issue but since obviously your fuel gauge isnt accurate you may just be out of gas.
I had the same problem since May with my 2006 Nissan Pathfinder brough it to my dealer 4 times during the course if 3 mos. Then I finally called Nissan Consumer and filed a complaint. Since this was due to a recall that was done to my car, there was no charge. They had to put a whole new fuel gauge sensor. I suggest to take it to a Nissan dealer because there is a recall for Fuel Gauge faulty reading that was put out in March or so 2010, so your car would qualify for the recall at no cost to the customer.
The fuel level sensor is at fault and is setting the service engine soon light on. Your local Nissan dealer can repair this under warranty depending on your mileage. The fuel tank will need to be removed to access the sending unit.
The Service Engine Soon indicator light tells the Service tech that the Pathfinder's ECM detected and Issue with the engine's management system. Your going to have to get the Pathfinder Scanned for DTC codes so you can addressed the issues that is in the ECM's history. Once the issues have been addressed, the Service engine light will reset it self or the service tech can reset it for you. The light will stay on or come back if the issues have not been repaired. Good luck and hope this helps.
