Question about 2005 Nissan Pathfinder
When accelerating hard I hear a squealing noise coming from the transmission. Also seems to be slipping. If I back off the throttle a little it will stop.
Check the fluid to see if the radiator oil cooler is bad &
ruined the trans
VERY VERY Common & WELL Known problem with pathfinder
& frontiers from 04 to 08
You may need a new radiator,bypass the trans cooler lines to it
& go to the front cooler only, then rebuild the trans
There are at least 8 updates to do to the valve body alone
Check Sonnax.Com for that
There is more info on all that on the internet,than you could read
in an evening & NO Nissan is out of the picture.
It is up to you to educate yourself before & during ownership
of any & all vehicles & check for govt recalls,it's all there
on the web

SOURCE: loud squealing noise
Probably a belt getting loose or worn. If alternator has a separate one than the rest, try just tightening it up. My guess is that it's probably all one belt with a tensioner pulley, which means you can't tighten, (spring tension already applied by tensioner) you have to change the belt, to get rid of noise, and if noise comes back in short time, think about changing tensioner.

It sounds like your water pump is going it usually vibrates throughout everything if it was your alternator it would show signs with your power the easiest way would to take your belt off remembering the belt route and spin the alternator pulley and the water pump pulley to see if they spin freely without noise

Testimonial: "Thanks, good suggestion. "
Hi Have you replaced the clutch plate? I believe the plate is worn and needs to be replaced and the throw bearing as well. Good luck.
