Recently my 02 pathfinder is losing power and shifting poorly into overdrive. This clears up when the vehicle is let to cool down and has happened only 2 times over the past 2 months. Any idea what might cause this? 65,000KM.


  • I have a similiar problem with my 2001 Pathfinder. It happens periodically and on occasion my cruise control has cut out going up overe a hill. I would selomce some assistance with this also. 200,000 kilometres
  • Similiar problem with my 2001 Pathy. The dealer suggested that it may be the catalytic converter(s). Check your exhaust when in park for the amount of exhaust being emited...apparently this is a tell tale least it is something to look into....Have a great day and if you find something else out please let me know..
  • Was having problems with my 2001 Pathy lack of power. Filled it up with Premium gas.... seems to be working fine now. any suggestions

    Has any one ever locked there chip type key in there pathfinder and then used your extra spare remote to open the door? Will it work or will the chip key inside the car stop your spare remote from opening the door?

    My 01 automatic transmission, 4x4 Nissan PF engine these days stalls when in D mode and I have to apply the brakes to stop in traffic. The problem starts about 1 minute after stopping in D mode. It sometimes happen in P mode when warming engine, for instance. You would notice a sudden drop in rpm on the odometer, then off the engine goes. Servicing and oil level are ok. A brand new transmission was fixed before the vehicle was shipped tp Ghana.

    Can anybody advise please?
