2001 Nissan Pathfinder Problems

Engine won't crank due to starter relay failure
The engine may not crank when the key is turned to "start" if the starter relay fails. This can be confused with a defective starter motor.
Check Engine Light Due to Failed EVAP Canister Vent Valve

The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to a defective charcoal canister vent control valve. The charcoal canister is a component in the Evaporative emissions (EVAP) system.  Our technicians tell us a failed vent valve will require replacement.

Engine Stall and/or No Start Condition

The distributor shaft bearing can become rusty, and seize causing the engine to stall or not start. The failed distributor will commonly require replacement.

2001 Nissan Pathfinder Recalls

Injury Due to Airbag Deployment

Airbags use a chemical reaction contained in an inflator module to create the pressure necessary to inflate the bags when deployment is required. These vehicles are being recalled because the front passenger airbag inflator may produce excessive internal pressure when deployed. As a result, the inflator module could rupture, causing metal fragments to strike vehicle occupants. Dealers will inspect and replace any defective passenger front airbag inflator modules found.

Rust May Form on the Strut Tower Housing

In areas where winter road salt is used, a mixture of snow/water and salt may enter an assembly location hole in the upper strut housing. This corrosive mixture can collect on the mating surface of the strut housing panel and the inner hood ledge assembly; over time, this can cause rusting of the strut tower housing. The rust can weaken the housing, causing it to crack and pull away from the inner hood ledge assembly. This can lead to grinding noises and increased steering effort, which, if severe enough, can cause the steering column to break. This would result in a loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the strut housing and repair the vehicles as necessary. An interim notification letter should be mailed to owners prior to May 16, 2011.

I have nearly 300,000 miles on my pathfinder and it continues to run without a flaw. I have done very little except regular oil changes. I never even had to change the spark plugs. The rear stablizer bushings needed replacing and I took it to a shop to press in the bushings, rather than buying the whole assembly. The tow package is exceptional too. I had the ball hitch on the tow bar and was...
I love my pathfinder, I have crashed it a couple times by going into a ditch or I hit ice and spun out of control went over a curb and was stopped by a rock wall but then drove off like nothing had happenned, this suv likes the abuse and it never stops I just keep up with all the maintinece
Basically and extremely reliable SUV. I have had some problems with the front brakes. Lots of vibration through the steering wheel etc when applied- even after they had been replaced. Must be a much more complex problem than simply replacing the pads.
