Question about Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

Nissan pathfinder deisel 2007 slows down between 100-120km while foot flat - ABS and (!) light on

I recently had to have the front left wheel bearing, rotors and the whole assembly replaced as damage was done from bearing. After god done, ABS brakes not working and light on on dash, also(!) on. The Nissan shop that fixed it were very pricy and i don't trust them so I didn't get them to look at ABS. Since getting home as Im driving when I hit around 100-120kms the car slows down even when my foot is flat. Do you know whats causing this. They did also replace the sped sensor but used second hand one so not sure if its that. if i take it to a general local mechanic will they normally have the equipment to diagnose etc. Thanks

The exclamation mark is not something you should ignore. The whole thing could be caused by the ABS light because stability control is limited now because of the ABS. That would cause power to be limited also. Get the engine dignosed for free at any autoparts store that is a large chain store.

SOURCE: had bearing assemblies replaced on front wheels

good possibility that you either damaged one of the wheel sensors or junk loosened up while you were working has gotten on the end of a sensor and is blocking the signal. Make sure that the trigger wheel and sensor are clean, that wiring is connected and intact, clear code and see if it returns.

SOURCE: ABS enguaging on its own. Replaced both front

Not supposed to use air gun on axle nut

Torque Wrench -- as you did

Check Wheel Sensors -- one may be bad or more
likely the mechanic damaged it.

Use a Volt Meter --put on A/C unplug sensor &
put meter on wires and spin the wheels

Do all four & compare

  • You have done just about everything possible to this truck. I know how it feels to do so much and not have much of a change. The problem at this point sounds like the brake booster is bad. The brake booster is a helping hand of sorts used when you press the brakes. Air is used to help you stop. With disk/rotor brakes the pressure needed to stop is far greater than with the cylinder/shoe style brakes. So when the booster goes out it is very difficult seemingly impossible to press down on the brake pedal.

  • It is possible you have a vacuum leak somewhere too. Make sure no valves were installed backwards when installing the master brake cylinder.
  • You should also have the vehicle scanned and the codes read to see exactly what is going on. When the codes are read you will have a clear picture of what it can be. After spending so much time and money with the repairs you have made you would not to continue until you are sure although what I have listed are my suspicions. I also recommend you have it scanned with with a scanner not a simple OBDII code reader. You can try the OBDII but it may not be as precise. Early 2000 Durango's had a lot of problems with this.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here and I will respond.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

How do I reset the TPMS warning light on my 2007 Nissan Pathfinder ? I have inflated a low air pressured tire too the proper inflation pressure, but the warning light remains on. Can anyone help me with...

My daughter has a 2006 Murano, and has had the same problems.
Replacement Tire Pressure sensors are available from e-bay online, but when the first one of hers quit, I found out from the dealer that the computer loses track and must be reset. I would not replace any wheel sensors just yet.
Where we live, the Nissan dealer wants about $150 to reset the computer and turn off the "flat tire" light.
Recently, a local tire store has offered to do this for free.
I took my daughter's car in to have the computer reset.
The store manager says they cannot reset Nissans or Toyotas, only the dealer can.
So, my daughter is living with the "flat tire" light.

88 Nissan Pathfinder heard a loud popping noise under the front suspension of the car while driving and then a winding down noise as i slowed down

It could be a blown seal or some messed up bearings on the hub. Take it to a mechanic and DRIVE CAREFULLY! The wheel could literally come off it the bearings aren't working and overheat!
