Question about 1999 Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

I just purchased a 1999 Nissan Pathfinder SE from a dealership based on their 101 point inspection indicating everything was in good order. Now there is leakage from the center thermostat housing. My mechanic says there is lots of staining indicating the leak has been there for some time. Due to residue he identified, he also believes something was added to temporarily stop the leak, but now it's started up again. Dealership says it is the water pump. If they replace the water pump, does it mean they also replace the gaskets and whatever else could be causing the leak in that area? Also, I've heard that a used car dealership in California must identify documentation indicating timing belt has been replaced, or must replace it, or must disclose to the purchaser that they have no indication it has been replaced. Does anyone know anything about that requirement?

Yeah, it's called the "Lemon" law....take them to court or approach them first and give them a heads up of what you are about to do. Not a joke.....that is why the lemon law IS the lemon law to prevent business prractices like this.

Battery or radiator light on a 1999 BMW 318i SE

The below is taken from another site written a year ago:
What you are looking at is the Service Indicator. The green, yellow and red lights let you know when service needs to be performed. The green lights mean everything is still good. The yellow lights mean "anytime you're ready." The red lights mean do the service ASAP. There are also two other lighted areas. One says "inspection," the other says "oil change" (or oil service.) An oil change is an oil change. However, there are two inspections: Inspection 1 is normally at every other 15,000 miles; Inspections 2 is at every 30,000 miles. Your local BMW dealer should have a pamphlet listing all duties performed for each of the services. Inspection 2 can run you around $400-$800 depending on the service station/dealership's labor rates. Inspections 1 should be around 1/2 of that. You should have your oil changed about every 5000 miles. Dealership oil changes can range from $35-$65. A BMW that is well taken care of will last a long time. 

FYI, don't be surprised if the SI (service indicator) board decides to **** out one day. I'm surprised to see yours is still working (they usually die within 10 years unless someone went thru the expense to have it replaced.) If/when it does go, just gauge your services by the mileage intervals I've listed above. I'd also recommend when you stop into (or just call) the dealership, go to the parts department and order an owner's manual for your BMW. Should be less than $20 and get to you in about a week unless they have one in stock.
When the service tech has performed the necessary service(s), he will reset your SI board so that only green lights are showing.
