98 pathfinder has intermittent spark issue. start and drive for an hour+-, quits, at slow speed -25mph. sits for 30 min, then restarts and drive.replaced ignition coil, no help. waiting on ignition control...


Was there only one ignition coil to be replaced or did you replace all of them? How do you know its due to intermittent spark and not a fuel delivery issue? The ignition control module is a good next step if you have changed all of the coils and confirmed it is not a fuel issue.

Sounds like my 2002 nissan pathfinder is bogging down when i gas it , it runs fine but gets crappy gas miledge


needs a tuneup, definately change fuel & air filters, replace spark plugs & wires, distributor cap / rotor, change oil & filter, it would'nt hurt to replace cat conv., it restricts exhaust flow, between you & me , take it off, put a straight pipe in its place, is your inspection up to date ? you'll have a year to replace your CAT, before next inspection. just remember that. nissans this year usually need to have the timing belt replaced, nissan charges $900 + to do it. BIG DIFFERANCE ! see how it runs after tuneup, also , you may end up replacing both the cam & crank sensors down the road. I would replace the OXYGEN sensor/s as part of tuneup, it will help a great deal.

My 95 Pathfinder has sat idle for a couple months and now it won't start.


letting a vehicle sit idle for months is not good !!! now you need to do some work, so get out your check book ! replace both air & fuel filters, replace spark plugs, plug wires, distributor cap & rotor, add fresh fuel & fuel injector cleaner to tank @ same time. why are you going from accessory to run, that doesn't make any sense, stop it, please ! now get to work, good luck !

1998 Nissan Pathfinder stuck in Limp Mode just had the distributor & spark plugs replaced now the vehicle stumbles & is sluggish on take off ?


Sound's like the timing is off, check the timing. Firing order is 1-6 counter clockwise and the engine is Front pass side 1-3-5 drivers 2-4-6. Timing is 13-17 @ 700-800 rpm for manual trans and same for automatic (in neutral)
Hope this helps.

Engine sluggish


By all means tweak the distributor and adjust the idle to get your vacuum up to where it should be. At the same time have you checked the timing with a timing lite? If you have and it is bang on you may want to consider taking a look at your timing chain in the near future as it may be stretched a little. But before you do that, check your compression. hope that this helps and that you take the time to rate this information.

Ignition coil??


Its the distributor that needs to be replaced. Its probably the coil alone that bad but the coil is built into the distributor, so you will have to replace as one unit. Make sure when replacing the distributor you set the car in base timing thats the rotor head tointed to cylinder #1 and number on piston on TDC(topdead center)before you remove distributor shaft then repalce in the same position and your problem should be solved. Good Luck
