Question about Nissan Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder with 103,000 miles on it. When in four wheel drive in reverse it feels like it is "binding up" and is difficult to turn the wheels. It was not like this when new but

Extremely tight when backing up, even seems to slip.

Feels like front diff is binding


Is it possible that when you replaced the differential you bumped the shifter, causing it to not completly shift into gear? The phrasing of your question is difficult to understand, but good luck.

2005 Kia Sorento - in 4 wheel drive, on dry pavement, going slow in forward, turning a corner to the left the rear drivers side wheel tries going in reverse and when turning right the passenger side wheel...


Hi,
Yes, this is normal while in four wheel drive on pavement.
I will try and explain why.
In four wheel drive the front and rear drive axles are linked together by a chain in the transfer case and gears in both axles. This is a direct link with very little play between the front and rear axles.
When cornering a rear wheel will spin faster, or slower depending on the direction of the turn. this causes a binding in the drive line because the drive line wants all the wheels to turn at the same speed. So the wheel "skipping" going in reverse, is the drive lines way of compensating for the different speed of the wheels turning.
Never should a four wheel drive be used on dry pavement. I could cause a break in one of the drive line components. On a slippery surface , snow, mud, gravel, grass, There is enough slippage in the surface to aloow the driveline to compensate for the different speeds of tire rotation.
So do not try at highway speeds on dry pavement.
Your four wheel drive system is working just fine.

My nissan pathfinder is 220,000 km, im not sure if they change the timing belt, i went to mechanic and he told me i have to change my timing belt,do i have to change my timing belt now, it works fine now


Nissan suggests the timing belt be replaced every 103,000 miles. If the belt has never been changed I would say you're living on borrowed time. This is an interference engine so if the belt fails you could end up with a seriously damaged engine.

Your motor mounts are either worn out or broken causing you to feel the vibration from the engine. Another possibility is that your exhaust pipe is touching the body somewhere.

Connect four wheel drive for a freelander land rover 2005


The Freelander, along with all Land Rovers are permanently in 4 wheel drive: You need to take the car to a workshop to see what is happening. Freelanders have big problems with the transfer box, this maybe the problem. When you reverse the car and put the car steering to full lock whilst reversing, do you feel that the car is blocking or binding, as though you have the brakes on. If so this is an indication that the transfer box is faulty. These boxes cannot be repaired, replacement only and are quite expensive.
Hope this helps
