2006 Nissan Pathfinder Problems

Erratic Fuel Gauge and/or Check Engine Light

The fuel level sensor can fail causing erratic or inaccurate fuel gauge readings. The Check Engine Light may also illuminate. Nissan has recalled 2006 - 2008 vehicles only for this fuel gauge issue. For more information on the recall, please click here»

Abnormal Noise From Front of Engine

A whining or buzzing type noise may develop from the timing chain area caused by excess slack in the secondary timing chains. Nissan has issued a service bulletin (NTB09-128) regarding this issue. Replacement of both secondary timing chains and their tensioner shoes will be necessary to repair this concern. As part of this repair, the engine oil and filter should also be replaced.

Radiator fails and dumps coolant into transmission fluid destroying the transmission

This is happening to thousands of mostly 05 and 06 pathfinders. Nissan denies the problem as it usually occurs after the 80,000 mile warranty period. If your transmission still has bright red transmission fluid get it to a garage quick and request that they add a transmission cooler and eliminate the cooling loop thru the radiator.

2006 Nissan Pathfinder Recalls

Engine Stalls Without Warning

A relay in the engine control power distribution module may arc and cause a failure which can result in engine stalling. Dealers will replace the relay inside the module free of charge to resolve the problem.

Nissan-Infiniti Recall for Faulty Front and/or Rear Control Arms

Nissan is recalling certain 2004 - 2010 Titan, Armada, & QX56 vehicles. Also included are 2005 - 2010 Frontier, Xterra, and Pathfinder vehicles for faulty front and/or rear suspension lower control arms. The problem is the control arm's attaching point to the vehicle's chassis. During the manufacturing process, some control arms may contain welds that do not meet Nissan's strength specs, and if they break, it may result in loss of vehicle control, and a possible crash.

Gas Gauge May Never Read Empty

The molded fuel tank can warp, creating interference with the fuel sender float arm and fuel tank. This would cause the fuel gauge never to read below a quarter tank of fuel even if it's empty. If the vehicle runs out of gas in traffic, you might become stranded or get into an accident. Dealers will replace the fuel level sending unit with one that has a modified float arm. The recall began March 22, 2010.

We have a 2006 Pathfinder and having been experiencing a rumbling sound when driveing at about 40 to 50 miles per hour. After reading on the internet it looks like we are not alone with this problem and it is going to cost us any where from 4,000 - to 7,000 to fix. Will never buy another nissan!
