Question about 2005 Nissan Pathfinder
Ever since i had the dealer service the transmission, it down shifts when trying to excel ~45mph+.. flush broke radiator and had to replace it and a cellonoid in transm. replaced fuel sending unit also, still have problems
This is what you will do. Check to see if the coolant is nice and green or if it has milky stuff floating on the top in the overflow bottle (next to the fender) and also check inside the radiator it self. Make sure that the coolant is clean inthere also. No white/milky stuff on top or on the back of the cap itself. Let me know what you find and we will take it from there. I have replaced 2 transmissions today that had fluid mixed up (trans fluid and coolant) because the radiator cooler (built in to the radiator) broke and the fluids mixed up and ruined the trany. You said that the dealership replaced the radiator. Why?? Unless the cooler broke, which means that your fluids mixed and the trans is no good. Changing the solenoid will not help. You will need a new trans and radiator ,but you already have that, so trans and cooler lines flushed only. Let me know what you find in the overflow bottle and in the radiator it self. CAUTION: open caps when vehicle is COLD, not HOT. It will burn you if its hot, so be carefull.

It is supposed to downshift depending on how much/hard you are accelerating.
