    I use my '97 Pathfinder just to haul **** around in on weekends.  Put maybe 2000 miles a year on it.  Last summer I had the battery die (only 2 years old).  It would jump start easily enough, but then be dead two days later.  I bought a new battery.  Then, 2 months later, the same thing happened.  Took it to the local Nissan dealer and they say the brand new battery is bad.  Doesn't sound right to me, but I'm taking the battery back to be replaced.

    I had the same problem and realized my 40A ignition fuse keeps blowing. When replacing the fuse the car runs fine up until a few startups then it blows again.

1998 nissan pathfinder oil pressure problems


Could be the oil pump.

Could be a major blockage in the lubrication system possibly due to major sludge build up.

Could be a faulty oil pressure relief valve.

1. How many miles are clocked up on the car?
2. How often does the engine oil and oil filter get changed in the car? Every 6000 miles for example.

Its a 1995 eclipse gs. Cranks but doesnt start. The fuel pump kicks in and fuel rail has gas flowing. Its just backfires and sounds bad in general. Ive had several people look at it and no one can so


There are few possibilities that cause such problems.
No start problem,backfire issues.
I suggest you few help links related to these issues.

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Fuel air mixture too rich on a 98 nissan pathfinder


My guess would be a fuel injector or fuel pressure regulator problem, or a Mass air flow sensor.
The O2 sensor does not come into play until the engine has run for a couple of minutes.
Is the check engine light on ?

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.

My 2005 nissan pathfinder acts like its out of gas. Put gas, started ran like normal for about two days. Then just stalls out with no warning. Will start back up like twice before it finally just...


My 2005 pathfinder was having the same problem. Took it to the dealer and they told me that there was a re-call on a relay that goes to the ECU. They suggested a engine diagnostics. If it turned out to be the relay, the part/labor and diagnostics would be free. My pathfinder is running great now. Hope this helps.
