Question about Nissan Pathfinder

2 Answers

My pathfinder goes into a sort of coast mode when I accelerate. It does not cut out but does not have any power. I give it acceleration a couple of times and it goes. They have cleaned the throttle etc and changed the throttle sensor but the problem continues.

    Faulty crankcase censor that sends the dignal to the throttle censor. Problem fixed.

Hi


Check the cables on the battery/fuse box to make sure they are not loose. Also check your Alternator. Your car runs off the alternator when its running, only uses Battery when it's off. Accessories also run off the battery when you're driving (dvd/cd players, speakers, amps) all of this drains the battery and the alternator recharges it. I'd check for a loose connection first, and then test the Battery and Alt. If you have a sound system, check that too. Also try removing and cleaning the Air Inlet Control Valve. Also check the spark plugs because they provide the energy for the engine.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Thank you for contacting fixya.com

Have an OBII scan done. (fault scan) Any good parts store (Autozone, Advance, etc...) can do it & FREE. This will identify what exactly is needed to be replaced, instead of throwing parts at it. When was last time fuel filter was replaced and injectors cleaned? I'd start there...

Pathfinder "cuts out" at 2,300 rpm


Replace your MAF, its a little pricey around $280.00 or so but this will clear the code but make sure you have the ECM reprogrammed to perform a "learning" sequence since sometimes the code will not clear even though the vehicle will run like new. This reprogramming will most likely have to be a dealer performed procedure.

Nissan pathfinder cutting out


I read somewhere that the problem was related to the sensor in the brake pedal, when it goes bad it confuses the computer, no input to indicate that the brake was applied, so it basically goes into limp mode, press the accelerator all the way to the floor and you get only gradual acceleration.

When coasting or slow acceleration I hear a tapping noise from the engine compartment. Goes away when I accelerate.


Check your oil immediately. Tapping is indicative of either low oil level or poor oil circulation. Running the truck under either condition is hazardous to your engine.
