Question about 1995 Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

I recently bought a 95 3 liter V6 pathfinder. The engine runs fine (for 154K miles) for about 20 minutes or so then starts to lose power and seriously misfire. Let it sit a few hours and then it will run fine for 20 minutes and repeat the process. Any ideas what the prob could be or just where to start. Don't want to throw out stupid money so would like to have a clue where to start. Thanks.

Sounds like a cracked coil. Once the heat gets to it the fire goes everywhere. Run it into a dark garage and with it running, open the hood and watch for sparks.

Ford 460 loses power then dies. Starts back up. Idles fine.


It sounds like you might have a clogged catalatic converter on the exhaust system.
