How do you take a 1991 nissan pathfinder out of 4wd?

By now you have either learnt to drive this vehicle or consigned it to the wreckers.....
Read your manual, or get one, or get a friend who knows the vehicle to explain how to do this.
You can slip from 4wd high into 2 WD without stopping, and back again at up to 50mph, but only on slippery surfaces, otherwise you risk damage to the transfer box.
from 4 high to 4 low, go as slow as possible or stop completely.
If you need to use 4 low, the more time you sit still and think about what's ahead, the fact you should already be in 4 low before you have to ponder life, the universe and everything...
do not exceed 30 mph in 4 low.......and that is where you are now.....Push the transfer box gear lever downwards into the gearbox, push the lever forward to 4 high, now forward again to 2 WD.
don't forget to unlock the front hubs..if they say auto hubs on the outside, just drive backwards a couple of yards in reverse in 2 WD. If they are manual fakers you will have to get out of the vehicles and rotate the arrow in the middle of the front hubs so it lines up with 4 x 2.......
join a 4wd club and learn the right way to do this before you wreck the vehicle, someone else's vehicle, or a life ........

Does the 4 door , 4wd nissan pathfinder have abs?

It should of had ABS. It might not have it anymore. Do you have a light on the dash board that lights up when the key is turned on? How about the owner's manual say anything about it? Most ABS systems go bad in 10 years. and most people pull the bulbs out or put black tape over the light. The brakes still work fine, but no ABS. Check it out, Hope this helps.

My 4x4 is stuck in four wheel low it is shift on the fly and i have already replaced the transfer case motor

Ok here is a long shot but sometimes it will work. Put the 4wd position switch to 4wd Lo, put your transmission in reverse and back up for about 50 yards, stop and put your transmission in neutral, then shift the 4wd to 4wd hi, wait a few seconds and shift the 4wd to 2wd hi, Sometimes the t-case will get stuck and this is how you reset the computer. I have known people that really got their t-cases messed up because they thought that shift on the go meant that they could shift the t-case into 4wd LO while moving but shift on the go is only for 4wd hi the gears will not mesh up fast enough for 4wd LO because the ratio is 1 to 1 . I hope this helps you.

first thing is to make sure trany fluid is full,start engine and check while in park,if oil level is good then i would have to say trany is bad,usually the motors are pretty good,those cars are famous for trany problems take it to a trany shop and have it checked out. good luck.

Sounds like you don't have a good ground at the battery. Take the clamps off of the battery and give them a good cleaning. Then, put some dielectric grease on the battery posts when you put the clamps back on.

1991 Ford Escort fan will not turn on and motor overheats.

some water from the tail pipe is normal but if the car is running bad then it is possible the head gasket is blown. on the escorts that i have owned i have found that the main relay is usually burned and needs to be replaced. it is possible that the fan is dragging and burning this relay up if this relay is good then you may be better off taking it to the electrical shop.
