Question about 2001 Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Nissan Pathfinder and the muffler is not completely attached. whenever i turn a corner you can hear the muffler going, "clank" "clank" "clank". How much would it cost to have someone reattach it the right way?

    my husband had fixed the problem b4 by using bonding tape to keep it in place. He said nothing was wrong with the muffler, just that some of the nuts & bolts were missing.

It is likely the muffler is rotted out or broken, so u will almost certainly need a new muffler and perhaps a section of new exhaust pipe, the average cost of the job here is around $100-150, any muffler shop will inspect your exhaust system for free, so the best thing to do is have a muffler shop look at it, just takes a few minutes for them to decide what to do and how much it will cost, it could be simple as repairing a broken exhaust pipe hanger, $25.

    so u are looking at $25 max if u are right about the muffler, but like i said have the muffler shop inspect it, it is free, if the muffler falls off u could cause an accident if it hits a car behind you, so have this fixed as soon as u can.

2001 Nissan PAthfinder 4-wheel drive malfunctioning'


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Will a 1997 3.3 Nissan Pathfinder engine be good to swap out a 2004 3.5 Nissan Pathfinder engine ??


being that you have a complete donor car the swap would be easy enough, one thing to keep in mind is the fuel management system and ECM will be different between the two. you may want to research the swap before you dive into it. it most likely will be cheaper to find a low millage motor at a wrecking yard that the same displacement and generation.

Is it easy to replace the muffler on the 2001 Pathfinder?


I do not know the particulars of the Pathfinder, but on 99% of cars, you need 1) to lift the truck to working height. Never work under a vehicle on a makeshift lift, such as a standard car jack. 2) You need to unsolder the old unit and solder back the new one. 3) You will be working with a hot torch, and sparks near the gas tank.
I recommend that you leave this unpleasant work to professionals.

Funny noise/squeal from LH wheel area on turning RH bends


Check your brakes for excessive wear or uneven wear. There are metal objects attached to the brake pads, that when worn they touch the rotors creating a metal squealing sound. This serves as a warning to prevent additional damage to your braking system, replace if pads are worn. If this isn't the case, if 4WD have your shafts, hubs bearings checked, if 2WD have your wheel bearings checked. Hopefully this helps

Exhaust pipe rattles when car idles. Had muffler


Check the heat shield on the Catalytic Converter, after a few years they start to rust off and rattle. Crawl under the Pathfinder and bang along the Converter and muffler area and see where it's coming from.   Good chances are, it's from the heat shield since you already had everything changed from the Cat back.
Good luck and hope this helps.
