2005 Nissan Pathfinder Q&A
2005 Nissan Pathfinder Question: automatic transmission
I personally haven't, older generation (early pathfinder had automatic transmission problems), perhaps call several transmission specialty shops or check the Nissan/Nissan Pathfinder forums to see if other people are reporting premature failures, - patrick mannion
Just a word of caution. If your mechanic has said that there's pieces of metal in your tranmission and that means it cannot be repaired. If he has suggested that you need a totally new or rebuilt transmission. Be wary and go to another mechanic for a second opinion. Over my 58 years on this planet, I've been told the same thing by every mechanic, when I had a tranmission problem. I was later advised that there's no way a tranmission can have pieces of metal floating around in it, and that's a lie told by those who want to stick you with the cost of a completely new transmission. - beemur2002
I have an 06 pathfinder and the transmission started shaking at 45mph and under acceleration. Started doing some research and there are a lot of 05's and some 06's that have a well know issue: engine coolant gets mixed with the transmission fluid inside the radiator. This causes your transmission to fail. My dealer has replaced the radiator and is now changing the seals in the transmission. They did not find any metal pieces in it. I am lucky that I am still under warranty, but some other cases I've read were not so fortunate and are now stuck with $ 7,000 for a transmission and $ 2,000 for the radiator. Check your coolant and transmission fluid. If they look milky, then you have the same problem. - Visitor
Nissan changed their radiator vendor in 2005. This is a known issue. Faulty part, flawed design. There are thousands of posts out there of people with the same issue. Radiator fails and coolant leaks into transmission. There's a pending class action lawsuit. DO NOT get your transmission replaced. Replace your radiator and have your transmission flushed. That might do the trick before you invest at least $5K in a 5 year old vehicle. - Visitor
