    With all the recent talk about fluid changes, I thought I'd ask what are the fluid capacities of the transmission and t-case? I read the t-case is 2.375 qts. How much should I refill in the transmission, if it's just a simple drain-and-replace? I plan to use Mobil1 synthetics in the tranny and t-case, so it would help to know how many quarts to buy ahead of time. Thanks.

    Sad to say that my 2001 PF does not have these lower anchors, I'll keep using the seatbelts. Hope that your install goes well.

    I just bought a 2002 Pathfinder. The volume goes up to only 31 is this standard for everyone else or do I have a problem or is there another way to adjust it. Cd's play very low.

    Mine only goes to 11.

    Keep posting like that and your audience will get more selective ;-)

    Spinal Tap references aside, I have the '01 PF which has no visual reference to volume...kind of annoying, but I can live with it. I guess you'll need an '02 owner to confirm whether 31 is really the max.
  • My volume only goes to 31 also. But my wife only limits me to 10.

    Happy Pathfinding!!!

    I realize that there must be a posting somewhere on this but can't find it. Can anyone tell me their experiences in using none factory cd's ( ie computer burned) I realize what the manual says but I 've been told that there shouldn't be any problem with home made ones. Obviously I don't want to wreck my new player.
    Also anybody purchase Weathertech floor mats ? How do they fit and look ? Thanks!

    with computer burned CD's. I do it all the time. I understand how you cold be concerned that they wouldn't play but how could you possibly think it could tear something up?
  • dieselonedieselone Posts: 5,641
    I think I currently have 6 cd's in the player that I've burned myself. No problems. I just wish the cd player had an mp3 decoder built in. Oh well.

    I am average height, but when seated normally in a Pathfinder, the rear view mirror is right in my line of sight. I cannot see to the front right without ducking down to look under the mirror. Does anyone know of a replacement mirror that could be mounted an inch or so higher than the factory one. I can't slouch low enough to be helpful.

    Anyone know if it's OK to mix synthetic trans fluid (such as Mobil 1) with the Dexron III? I'm about to change my trans fluid, and I assume a synthetic fluid would be good because of all the towing I do. But when you drain the trans using the drain plug(versus a complete re-build) there are still several quarts of fluid left in the trans, particularly in the torque converter. So if you re-fill with synthetic you are mixing two different products. Is that a problem? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hey SHARK715... I asked Mobil1 the same exact question & was told that Dexron III & Mobil 1 are completely compatible. E-mail me if you want me to forward you a copy of their reply (

    I don't have personal experience, but others have had problems with the 6 disc changer and certain CDs. I'm told if you put a label on it then it will be thicker than a standard CD (which have the label painted on). Just leave the stick-on labels for the single CD players, and use a pen to write directly on the CD and you should have no problems.

    Does anyone here know who manufactures the stock DVD player that comes as an option on the LE?
  • bigorange30bigorange30 Posts: 1,091
    Yes, its CE (China Electronics). I have it installed on my QX4. Do you have a question about it?

    Does anyone else experience the rattling noise in the back of their 01' PF when going over bumps (even small ones)? This minor design flaw can only be heard if and only if you have PF equipped with straight tailpipe and factory installed tow-hitch. It came to my attention to inspect my PF SE's rear-end after hearing the irritating sound when I go over bumps. After spending so much time searching for the noise inside the cargo compartment, I finally realized that it's the muffler or tailpipe (for the lack of accurate term) rattling against the tow-hitch (Nissan design center is located in a beautiful county of San Diego and i guess they spend more time on the beach than in their work area,hehehe). To satisfy my curiosity, i have also spent quite some time checking out other PF's rear-ends,heheh, and found the same problem. As the result of this, i decided to pay a visit to a local dealership in san diego, Ca and to talk to the service folks. They responded by telling me not to worry, it's normal. Very disappointed there! So i walked out to their PF lot to check out the 02' model. Guess what? Nissan's engineers found out the design flaw and fixed it by creating more space between tow-hitch and the muffler or tailpipe. So i showed this to the salesmen and asked them what i should do. They responded "The dealership is not responsible for problem such as that and the owner need to fix it on his/her own!". This was from the biggest Nissan certified dealership in san diego,ca. Even more disappointed now! Does anyone have any tips/hints and/or solution to this design flaw? Final note from a product development engineer, this problem should have been caught during the driving test performed at the factory before releasing a $30K product. this is from a semi-happy owner of a PF just for its outstanding performance so far!

    factory hitch or aftermkt?
    I have a solution that has worked GREAT for my aftermkt hitch the past two years.

    1)-Slice lengthwise an six to eight inch section of 1" in diam. automobile water hose (black kind with nylon fibers embedded in it).
    2)-Apply a liberal amount of silicone adhesive to the inside of the hose.
    3) slide hose over/onto right hitch hanger (where contact in occurring) and let set.

    It has worked flawlessly for two years, let me know if you want pics, I could have them posted after lunch.

    good luck

    Hey gpsnav, for whatever it's worth, I have an '01 PF with a Nissan dealer installed hitch and there is about an inch of clearance. Have never noticed them hitting each other, and there's no marks on either piece indicating that they have touched. I live in New Jersey, and in my area the Nissan hitch bars are dealer installed, not factory installed.
