Question about 1994 Nissan Pathfinder
You have an oil leak somewhere. If the engine is dirty, one morning, drive to the nearest carwash, turn off motor, and use the pressure washer on the engine compartment. If it is really nasty, buy a cheap can of oven cleaner, (ammonia) and spray it on the engine before using the pressure washer on it. (DONT spray the coil packs, or spark plugs if possible) Then take it for a drive, and look for where the oil is coming out. Probobally an intake gasket. ALWAYS keep your engine compartment spotless! It makes it easy to repair, and troubleshoot. I am up to three people here locally who thought I was full of it, let their engine get nasty, and their cars burned to the ground. Also, when I worked as a service tech, I charged extra, (a LOT extra) if I had to get dirty while fixing a car. I also charged $20 for every time someone called to check on their car prematurely.
