    now that my transmission/radiator have been replaced...my gas guage is acting up...is anyone else having this problem on the 2005 pathfinder? I called in to Nissan NA and the 2005 is not part of the recall, give me a break here - I love my truck but all these new issues are driving me insane!!

    For sure, to everyone having these problems, keep calling. I guess they need to know you are serious. Although, the BBB got back with me after Nissan gave me the ok on the transmission and said they couldn't have helped me bc my 2005 was too old. Did you guys get that response from them too? I know it's not new but it only has 56,000 miles. Just thought that was weird. Not sure what my next move would have been... annoying Nissan some more I guess. As far as the gas gauge, I haven't had that yet but I've read quite a few complaints about it when I was researching the transmission/radiator problem, something to look forward to?! Geez!

    Hi All, I have been reading through this and have a cple questions. My pfinder is a 2005. I have replaced 2 ujoints because of vibrating while driving. I have also replaced tires - all of this becaue the dealership told me I needed to! UGH!!! Seems to now be corrected.

    Now, I am facing transmission issues. And could use some feedback, help.

    I have 95K miles on mine. When I tried to put the car in reverse, the gear shows as in P unless i just wiggle it a little bit. Then when I place it in D - it shows either P or R unless again I wiggle it a little bit. If I dont get it just right, it pops. So, I read thru this figured out how to check the fluid and it is a pinkish color. I think that is bad. But I am not sure. Does anyone know? Also, what have people had to do in the past to correct? Replace it completely? Or I saw something about turning it over to your Insurance for replacement if there is water in the radiator? I am just wondering what my options are. I swear they rip me off everytime I go in just because I am a female. So, if anyone could give me some guidance, I would really appreciate it.

    Oh last I was in, they said I needed to replace the catalytic convertors because the Check Engine light was on. And that I need back brakes. Covertors - $3K, Brakes $500.

    I really am a smart business woman, but I don't know diddly squat about vehicles.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Sounds like your dealer has been hosing you. Seems like the generic problem on 2005 Pathfinders is faulty radiators that leak coolant into the trans, contamintating and eventually ruining it and then the trans fluid leaks back into the radiator ruining it.
    The vibration you heard and problems you have in different gears are from a failing trans. You have to be persistent. Call Nissan North America. Be prepared for their refusal to cover costs of trans and radiator because of your mileage. Keep on their backs. Keep asking to go a level highter. Call your local TV and Radio stations. Try to get in touch with the person that has a"Help Me" segment on the news. Don't take no for an answer. And, find a new, honest dealer. Good Luck.

    Is it true that the years prior to 1995 were OK and the transmissions did not give any signs of bad performance do the the Leakey radiators? :confuse:
  • lildavidjaxlildavidjax Member Posts: 68
    I've been watching this forum ever since it started, so I really don't think any years prior to 2005 were affected. Radiators are just like tires these days: they can have any number of manufacturers. Just so happens that in 2005 whichever company that Nissan was receiving radiators from obviously had a defect built into every radiator.You are probably safe as long as your year-model is not a 2005. Good luck!

    :( I have a 2006 Pathfinder with 78,500 mile and I too have the vibration or what they call a shutter in the rear. My gas gauge has been broken for 6 months and I am not part of the recall. Today another dealer replaced my catalytic converter which is covered under the manufacture warranty for 80,000 miles. As for the vibration the first shop said they only thing they could find was that I threw a weight off my drive shaft (which is common) so they fixed that for $350.00 and it did not work. They continued to try and figure it and finally gave up. They recommended bringing it to a dealer. The first dealer said replace tranny for $5700 and I almost died. Then I brought to a tranny specialist said torque converter $2500. Called Nissan at 1-800-Nissan-1 and after 3 days they said that I was SOL. Brought it to another dealer and they are really not sure what the problem is but if I replace the tranny it should fix the problem. After reading this blog I am going to have my tranny fluid checked since I had to fill my radiator recently. I thank everyone for posting it helps to trouble shoot when no one else really gives a hoot.
  • gharpmangharpman Member Posts: 88
    Have to replace tranny, radiator (original source of trouble) check and replace hoses if contaminated by tranny fluid. Report it to the DOT. I was lucky and persistent. It took me about 2 wks from my start of contacts, 'til I got justice. I paid $450 (1/2 dlr labor cost) to replace tranny and radiator. Luckily, I had a good dealer for the work; but I did all the footwork with Nissan North America. Keep calling them. Tell them you know the problem is widespread. Don't threaten them.You'll piss'em off and won't get anywhere. Good luck.

    I just went to the DOT website and I could not find anything that would be related to car issues where did you report to? Also, what year and how many miles does you truck have?

    Recently, our 2006 Pathfinder SE 4x4 starting shuttering or vibrating in the rear. We took it to a local mechanic and he said the transmission was ok and the 4x4. That the problem was the ECU (brain) and we needed to take it to a dealer. We have 80,000 miles on our vehicle. Yesterday, we took it to the dealer and they called back and said that we needed a new transmission and new radiator. They said it would cost $5,400 and we about died. Also, my fuel tank is doing exactly what the recall says and they said I was not part of the recall and it would cost $468. My husband and I both feel like we are being taken for a ride and they just want us to buy a new car. When you use the word tranny - are y'all referring to the transmission? Wonder if I call Nissan if they would replace it even though its not under warranty anymore though? We are very upset and if it ends up being the transmission - we've already decided - no more Nissan's for us b/c this is the first foreign car we've ever purchased.
  • gharpmangharpman Member Posts: 88
    I had 39,000 mi when I reported issue. The mileage was a positive in having Nissan cover the parts. You have to really go over the DOT sight to find where to report issues--or call them. good luck
  • stacy20stacy20 Member Posts: 15
    You are so right about "not threatening Nissan." We were getting so flustered by the whole mess, we did throw out some threats which got us nowhere. After several phone calls etc I collected my thoughts and told a manager that I wanted to be loyal to Nissan and stick with their product but they were making it very difficult. This approach seemed to work (thank goodness!!). My Pathfinder goes in Monday. I'm still not exactly sure what all is covered, she just said Nissan was taking care of it. I of course am hoping that means ALL of it ( I can dream big). I will keep you all posted. Did anyone ever have any luck with BBB?
  • charlie102charlie102 Member Posts: 1
    my daughter's car in southwestern Va. same problem. radiator coolant in transmission 2005 pathfinder. quoted price for repair 4200.00.

    I am a federal congressional relations person. I intend to file an FTC charge if not corrected. This is certainly a case for recall. please urge anyone who has the same problem to sign to forum. In a small area of less than 10thousand people they have 2 cases this year. I note there are 27 forum cases. I suspect there are thousands nation wide.
  • gharpmangharpman Member Posts: 88
    I had problem. Went after Nissan like a shark on a bloody fish. Have to be relentless.Nissan Na will find every reason to reject. It's like having a pre-existing condition. They should be held liable. Probably don't want a recall because it's too expensive.
    Unless they are honorable (ha!ha!) Nissan dealers try to take advantage of customers on this issue. They are too lazy to fight for you. My guys were ok, after a kick in the rump from me. I reported it as a safety issue to the Government agencies. It is a safety issue. If the trans quits when you're on the road, you're screwed.

    I would up paying $450 (half the dealer labor charge) for radiator,trans. I shouldn't have had to pay anything. Good Luck. Use your influence.

    My issue with them is simple. I was out if warranty when my issue occurred, but the were well aware of the problem long ago. Had they informed everyone of the potential of the transmission failure because if the faulty radiator, we all could have replaced the radiator for $600 instead of the radiator and transmission for $5200.00. They knowingly did not inform us with the hope that the majority of us would be out of warranty when the issue occurred...

    So I have the same issue with my '05. I need a trans and radiator. I bought it used about a year ago. I called to ask for some type of assistance with the issue. I spoke with Nissan North America, no luck. They said nothing they could do, my vehicle was used. She just kept insisting that the vehicle was used. I know a vehicle should have plenty of life left at 70,000 miles used or not. I was angry, so I think I made her angry which got me nowhere. I am expecting a call from further management on Monday, I will try the nicer approach. I do feel on this issue all day they probably say no. I really wish there was something we could do. I will look into the lemon laws for my state to see if that will help me. I was extremely excited when I purchased my truck, now I'm discussed and will never buy another Nissan. I just had a baby and haven't been back to work in 7 months. this is a huge expense for a new mom. Good luck everyone, can anyone say class action suit, I'm down!!!!
  • gharpmangharpman Member Posts: 88
    Time to report this to your congressman and senators. problem seems to be widespread and covers several vehicles. good luck.

    Thanks so much for the info. Something needs to be done!!!! I contacted all sources you suggested. I was also told to contact the Consumer Protection Agency for my state. Thanks again!

    Here's an E-Mail I sent to my Senator, Scott Garrett. Anyone can use the guts of it and adapt it for their use.

    Nissan Corporation is shafting virtually all owners of 2005 Pathfinders. They installed a bunch of faulty radiators in production and the end result has been that the radiators leak coolant into the transmission and transmission fluid is leaked back into the radiator rendering both ultimately inoperative.

    If you go to the Edmunds.com Forum and click through to 2005 Nissan Pathfiners-Transmission problems, you will find a host of very unhappy owners who got little or no satisfaction from Nissan USA.

    The problem happened in my Pathfinder. Because my dealer( Hackensack Nissan) informed me that the leakage had started and worked with me, and Pat Barrett Transmissions (great honest guys) told me to get a new radiator and trans from Nissan, I took up the good fight and finally got Nissan to replace the parts gratus while I paid half the Dealer labor charge of $450. I still think I should not have paid a dime.

    Nissan is dancing around a recall and frankly, pissing off alot of customers. Additionally, many dealerships are charging customers for :ghost repairs" or from between $6,000 and $7,500 for the transmission and radiator replacement.

    Make no mistake about it. This is a safety issue. If the radiator and/or trans fails on the road, people could be put in danger. We need someone to expose Nissan NA and the widespread problem they are trying to cover up.

    I was hoping to find others with this same problem. I was fortunate in that I bought an extended warrantee. I figured many others were out there who hit around 80K who weren't so lucky. Around 10k miles ago my Pathfinder started to make a whining noise. I took it in, and was blown off. Took it in again and was told that it was a bad camshaft solenoid. That was replaced. No change in the whining. Finally the shuttering started. I took it in and demanded the mechanic ride with me in the drivers seat. It shuttered 2 times between 25 and 50 mph. I offered to take it on the freeway, and he nearly jumped out of the truck. He was adament that I take the vehicle back to the dealership. After 10 minutes on the lift, the service manager came to me with the news that I needed a new trans and new radiator, and refused to let me take the truck home while I waited for parts to be ordered.

    The whining persists, the shuttering is gone, but now the oil gaged dips down to the lowest range of normal when I brake, and spikes up the highest range of normal when I hit the gas. But, not all of the time.

    I too have friends and family in the legal field. I will be sharing this blog with them. This is unacceptable that a known problem such as this was not grounds for recall, so all vehicle owners without extended warrantees were offered the free correction.

    Does anyone else have issues with the vascilating oil gage, or failure of the heater to work at times?
  • cobra1994cobra1994 Member Posts: 3
    :lemon: I had the same exact problem, but unfortunatly I had no warrenty in my Nissan Pathfinder, But I did took it to my Mechanic and he told me that I definetly needed the radiater replaced and the transmission replaced. He also check the oil gage fluating flip flopping and he told me it was the engine going bad. I had no choice then to trade in my Vehicle. I Will Never Buy A Nissan, And I will Share my story with my family and friends. I do Agree they should of had a recall on this problem, but i guess they dont want to deal with it. Good Luck with everyone who owns a Nissan Vehicle. :lemon: :mad:
  • dbussell78dbussell78 Member Posts: 4
    I am have the same issue minus the oil guage. I went out and bought an extended warranty just waiting to use it until I need to. Don't know if I have to wait thirty days and so not want to take the chance.

    The heater was not working unless I was driving at a higher speed. That was my heater core which was not too bad. The part alone was $160 then I had my tires replaced because my now "old" mechanic told me the rumbling was my tires. The labor for the heater core is at least six hours. My new mechanic said it took him longer but did not charge me the additional labor.

    Now just playing the waiting game for the warranty. I figured I would do it in august when we are due to go away and I do not my car.

    Good luck to everyone!
  • gharpmangharpman Member Posts: 88
    Had trans and radiator problem. Got it taken care of after several communications with Nissan NA. Paid $450 (half dealer labor charge). Filed complaint with DOT.Sent E-mail to my senator in Wash DC. Got to be relentless to bring Nissan to justice. They are no different than any corp. in any business. Sacrifice a few. Hope you don't get caught. Pretend to have the consumer's best interest at heart, "We care about you."" _________is a name you can trust." Deliver on the bottom line. Only way to get back in long run is not buy their product.

    Hi, All

    I've seen this same complaint posted everywhere, and am having the same problem with my 2005 Pathfinder. I'm in the process of filing a lawsuit against Nissan to have this problem fixed. If you're interested in joining me in the suit, please email me.

  • mtcamaramtcamara Member Posts: 2
    Yet another 2005 Pathfinder with the same radiator trans issue. Mine has 70,220 miles(my next service at Nissan Servicentro Hato Rey, which by the way is excellent!)was to take place at 70,500 until the check engine light came on - I guess a little too late...I heard a funny humming everytime I got to 40mph little did I know that the radiator fluid would leak into the trans,etc. and that my car would die, just like that. The repairs in San Juan, PR can also add to $6,000.00. The check engine light should come on once the radiator begins to crack, this design really sucks! Nissan should also be sued for this....
  • stacy20stacy20 Member Posts: 15
    My 2005 pathfinder is in the shop now (for almost 2 weeks) getting the radiator and transmission fixed. Shockingly enough, Nissan is covering everything. The dealer (where it's getting fixed) called to tell me all the hoses need replaced also, which had messed up my heating - sometimes it worked and sometimes not. I immediately called Nissan of NA and talked to the manager who had agreed to pay for the problems and she said Nissan would also be covering the hoses. I do have to pay for a squeaky belt and a couple minor things not related to the radiator/transmission. I think they maybe coming to grips with their responsibility here, dare we hope?!
  • srexy1srexy1 Member Posts: 7
    I wish there were a way to put together a database of everyone on here that is having or has had the Radiator/Transmission issue, Heater issue, etc. Would also be nice to include mileage at diagnosis, date of diagnosis, VIN number for location of assembly, cost of repairs, who got fixed under warranty, who got partial reimbursement, who didn't, etc. It would be nice to know how many have had the issue and when Nissan first knew about it. I seriously wish they would have informed me of the issue when they were first informed about it. That way I could have replaced the Radiator for the $600 - out of warranty - and not had to deal with the transmission issues. If anyone is working on such a document, please inform all of us on here to be included... Thanks...
  • condrenvcondrenv Member Posts: 9
    Congratulations !!! That is amazing....I spoke to a number of people at Nissan NA and I got no where. I can not even get them to fix my fuel gauge that was recalled on most not all 2006 Pathfinders and mine was broken. I decided to invest in an extended warranty for 24 months or 24,000 for $2500. I will continue to drive my truck until tranny competely gives up. When I purchased the warranty I went to a different dealer that had no idea I was having issues. Good Luck :)

    2005 Nissan Pathfinder Off-Road *New Transmission AND Radiator?
    R U KIDDING ME? :mad:

    It figures > 1 payment left and just about to hit 100,000 and WHAM!!! Maybe buying a first year new car design wasn't the best idea. Can someone explain how water from the radiator can get into the transmission? And if $5,600 is the most "cost effective" I would HATE to see what isn't. Can you say :lemon: Maybe NISSAN will react to a class action lawsuit? :P
  • gharpmangharpman Member Posts: 88
    Call Nissan North America and be forceful. Forget the mileage. It's their error.

    The coolant leaks through the trans cooler into the tran. And the trans fluid follows the reverse path to the radiator. Repairs can run between $5000 and 7000 without Nissan's intervention. I just contacted one of the local Tv stations' News Dept. and told them about the problem and thatn there should be a recall.

    Here's the e-mail. Maybe you can use some of it to contact your local Tv station.

    Nissan is trying to ignore and cover up an important problem with their 2005 Pathfinders (could also be some 2006's involved).
    They got a bad batch of radiators,installed them during assembly, and the result has been leaking of coolant from the radiator to the transmission and corresponding leakage of tran fluid in to the radiator, rendering both and all possibly, delivery components (hoses) damaged. The first sign of this problem is a vibration in the rear of the vehicle, especially on the highway. The end result could be radiator and/or transmission failure. There are over 26 pages of complaints and stories on Edmunds.com -Nissan Transmission problems (here's a sample)) http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/WebX/.f177b6c?displayRecent.

    The out-of-warranty repair costs between $5000 and $7000. Some disreputable dealers (as described on the Edmunds site) replace other parts and milk their customers.

    I had the problem. I had felt the vibration. Because of my background with cars, I suspected it was the transmission. Coincidentally, I went to my dealer, Hackensack Nissan, for a cooling system service. Upon completion, they told me that they found trans fluid in my radiator while they were doing the service. I called Pat Barrett Transmission (who I use for various repairs) and they told me about the extent of the problem and told me to have the trans and radiator replaced along with the hoses if needed. They also said that my trans should be covered under the vehicles Power Train Warranty.

    I went back to Hackensack Nissan who said they would work with me on the problem. I then called Nissan North America. Initially, Nissan said that the trans, but not the radiator was covered by the warranty. I told them that there was a synergistic effect present. The leaking radiator caused the trans and radiator problems. After several phone calls, they said thet they would replace both parts, but I would have to pay $450 - half of the dealers labor charge from Nissan. I also would get the money back if there was an official recall on the problem. I agreed to the settlement, since there was no better alternative. Hackensack Nissan was agreeable all the way and did a careful and excellent job replacing the parts, testing the vehicle and returning it to me. The entire process took about 2 weeks from diagnosis, only because I was relentless. I have to add that a big factor in Nissan N.A.'s decision was that I only had 39,000 miles on the vehicle. I have to commend Hackensack Nissan and Pat Barrett Transmission for their help in resolving my problem.

    As noted in The Edmunds Forum, there are many customers who have not faired as well. It seems that mileage is an important factor in Nissan's decision. And even then, they have held back from helping customers on this and other issues such as fuel guage malfunction,etc.

    If you read any or all of the pages relating to this topic on The Edmunds Forum, you will see an underlying or maybe overt reluctance on Nissan's part to correct this problem. Once again, an auto manufacturer is hiding its head in the sand hoping to not get caught and have to spend millions to right a problem. So much for "Good Will."

    Thanks for your time.

    Does anybody have any VIN nymber correlation to the Transmission problems? I have an '05 manuf. in 3/05. I replaced my rear ujoint at about 80,000 miles and thought that was odd. Then I got to digging around on the internet and I cant help but think that the reason it went bad is because of water in tranny.....Not sure though. Everything else seems ok.....Should I bypass that cooler and add an aftermarket one? I feel like I am going to vommit.....
  • gharpmangharpman Member Posts: 88
    your pathfinder has two trans coolers. you can reverse the hoses on one which acts as a bypass. If you live in NJ, Pat Barrett transmissions in westood can do it. they are the best. honest and skillful;or find a knowledgeable dealer/mechanic that understands the hookups and can do the job. good luck

    Our 2005 Pathfinder is also at Nissan in their service shop "waiting" for disposition from NISSAN NA since 4/6/2010. Would you be willing to share your dealer name and location?

    I hope so :]

  • mtcamaramtcamara Member Posts: 2
    Well my advice would be to try for the service shop to honor a warranty on the trans through Nissan and then you pay for the radiator. Apparently this is the unofficial way they are dealing with the problem here in PR. The way I see it is that I pay for about $400 on a new radiator and save $3,000+ on the trans., legal fees,etc. The dealership would probably not help as much. Good Luck! :cry: I do not expect to have my car for the next 3 weeks! ">

    My dealer is in Northern Indiana. They weren't any help, it was a Nissan NA manager who finally agreed to cover the costs (including the radiator - so keep on them bc for some unknown reason to me they covered both). I just got it back and seriously, the air conditioning doesn't work. I wish I was joking. UGH!!! This car is going to be the death of me. HATE it!!

    Just bought our 2006 Pathfinder in Nov. 09, had 120,000 miles on it. Purchased privately. The guy kept it meticulous, all maintainance records. High miles due to his employment. Well- @127,000 miles a rumble starts to occur around 40-45 mph, also notices rumbles mostly in overdrive when torque converter locks in and when unlocks. I started to notice this about a month ago. My wife drives it 99% of time. Well this week she explained that it's not shifting correctly. Well now I really suspect something, going on. I pulled the dipstick out and low and behold it looks milky, not at all the nice red even slightly brown red, just plain milky brownish red. As any backyard mechanic would realize oh S#$T! I popped the radiator cap and found the anti-freeze amazingly similar in color as the tranny fluid. Well I got on computer, typed in 06 Nissan Parthfinder tranny problems and here I am. I really thought Nissan made a good quality product. We've owned mostly Honda's for cars and GM products for Trucks and SUV's. So this was our first test. I am afraid we need a new tranny which we really can't afford. I know the thing is out of warranty, but geez this is ridiculous. This is such a cover up by Nissan. I don't understand how not replacing radiators isn't cheaper than the lawsuits to come if they don't just fess up about the defect.

    Well, it's in the shop right now, but looking at everyones e-mails with similar issues, things don't look good. It's a good thing we still have our 97 Honda with 270,000 miles. I will do my best to get the word out to friends, family, BBB, Nissan, and who ever else will listen. :sick: :cry::( :mad: :lemon:

    Do us all a favor and call Nissian Corp. and report it. The more people that complain the better off we are. Not only do have the tranny problem I have a bad fuel sensor they wont fix for $500 and had to replace catalic converter . We have a Toyota with 250,000 miles that never needed any major work. This is a disgrace to say the least.
  • elfman1elfman1 Member Posts: 1
    I had the fuel gauge issue at 60K and it was fixed under warranty. In Jan 2010 my check engine light goes on and its both cady converters at 81K (1000 miles out of warranty), that's an expensive repair btw, then in April I get hit with the dreaded "coolant destroying the tranny" problem. Thank God I paid for the extended warranty.....so it was all covered. But my check engine light goes on again the day after I get it back from dealer and I am told that its one of the cady converters AGAIN!
    I love how this car drives and all, but I cannot keep shelling out time, money and emotional energy. I don't think I have any choice but to sell it and move on from Nissan. It is going to take a lot to get me to buy a Nissan again after all this.
    I do not know much about cars.....can the CC issue be caused by a bad fuel sensor or something else that might not show up on the computer????
