Oh yer you just know there going to "snap off" give all the bolts a good socking in WD40 for a week or so first then if they refuse to move try putting some heat on the with a hot flame torch with a pointed flame they need to get very hot "glowing a dull red" and then they will come undone easly,,,putting the car out wont be as easy though!!!! ha ha!

      The EPA warns that prolonged contact with used engine oil may cause a number of skin disorders, including cancer! You should make every effort to minimize your exposure to used engine oil. Protective gloves should be worn when changing the oil. Wash your hands and any other exposed skin areas as soon as possible after exposure to used engine oil. Soap and water, or waterless hand cleaner should be used.

2005 nissan pathfinder gearbox valve body

Don't ever purchase a Nissan newer than a 2004. They are complete junk. I have an 05 Pathfinder that had all the records. I purchased this around 72,000. My wife & I have driven it for about 15k miles and have had that vehicle in the shop multiple times. Right off the bat, the vehicle had a leak that cost me 1200. While on a road trip, an easy fix but the thermostat went bad, $200. Among other things, Currently it is sitting down at my local trasmission shop and needs the valve body replaced- $1600. research Nissan before they take advantage of you by selling an overpriced vehicle that they consider top of the line but start having trouble around 100k, right when the extended warrenty is up.

I have a really strange problem with my Nissan 2006 Pathfinder. The heater will not heat up and blow out hot air as long as the vehicle is sitting idling. When I want to defrost the windshield on frosty...

Since your blower is working and it is a heat issue,thats where we'll start,First thing is have you checked the coolant level in the radiator when engine is cold,make sure it is filled to top,next verify you have coolant in reserve ,Start your van and get it up to normal operation temperature,If your heat gauge on the dash works correctly it should be 190 degrees,Now lift the hood and locate the two heater hoses going into the heater assembly at the fire wall,Both hoses should be hot to hold on to,if both are hot and no heat inside your problem will be the blend air door in heater assembly.
if neither hose is that hot you need to replace the thermostat in the engine to get it up to 195 degrees.
if one hose is hot and one is luke warm then the heater core is blocked and to blame. hope this helps y

it is located on driver side left of fusebox on my 91 civic hatchback. You have to look, its not under the dash but under the side portion where the air vent for heat & air cond. is. Held on by metal bracket that is attached to the relay. you may have to stand on your head to see it or remove your lower dash panel portion to get to it. probably have to pull bolt out of bracket first to access the relay. It took me a bit to find mine but thats where it was.
