My first thought would be that you have a brake that is sticking, or dragging, or not fully releasing (on the right, front side). In 2-WD it creates a drag on the right side that causes the vehicle to pull to the right.

In 4wd, the front wheels & all 4 wheels are effectively driven at the same speed, so it compensates for the dragging brake.

I'd start there, and also inspect the cv joints and front drive system to see if there is something out of kilter.

I'd consider front end alignment issues, but does not really sound like that is the issue.

Brake light will not go out, replaced switch still stays on will go off if i unplug new switch, is there a relay for brake lights? Sorry i have a 1996 Nissan Pathfinder 4 wheel drive


Two things. First there is an adjustment for the switch. Try this first. Second you bought a bad switch. When the switch is working right it kills the power to the lights, like unplugging it. So you problem is still with the switch or adjustment.

1996 Nissan Pathfinders engine dies after driving approx. 1/2 hour, then will start and run for a short distance, what could be the problem. Please help!


Does it happen when idling is gear? (I.e. at a red light, then when you try to accelerate it stalls?) Have you tried keeping your foot slightly on the gas pedal? If so, this could be a vacuum seal problem. Get a Vacuum Gauge, then use this site to help determine what the exact culprit is:

When i push gas pedal my stearing wheel sudenly pulling left and then when i release gas it is go back. and this car has 5 speed manual transmition.


Front wheel drive ? it would seem that the right wheel is not pulling it's weight for what ever reason. In order for this to be corrected you will have to have the right front wheel hub and transmission inspected. That is what is causing it. The left wheel is being forced to do all of the work.

check the plug at the mass air flow sensor (MAF)
Corrosion is a common problem at these plugs.
clean the corrosion and then protect it with dielectric grease (silicone grease) I use mag wheel cleaner. the etching kind has phosphoric acid in it and disolves the ccorrosion. just dont forget to rinse well and then protect it afterwards. If you dont it will corrode quickly
