What is a fair price for a muffler and tailpipe assembly repair/replacement on my pathfinder?

The starter is working. The fan and pulleys are turning. The engine won't turn over. Took the distributor cap of and tried the switch, it didn't spin when we turned the key. Is it possible that there is something disconnected in the crankshaft?

I just had over $1100 worth of work done on my 2007 Pathfinder regarding this issue. I am at 66k miles and they told me that if it had been caught earlier, they could have taken care of it at no cost. My problem is, i took my vehicle in at 50823 miles because it was acting weird. If i was at a high speed and i would let my foot off the gas it would sound as if the engine was still reved up for a couple seconds. It kind of seemed like it was taking a couple of seconds for the gears to kick in, if that makes any sense... There was also a high pitched sound the car would make when i would turn it on that would be loud at first but would quiet down but would get loud again once i stepped on the gas. I asked Nissan about that and they told me that it did not have anything to do with the current problem. At the time they told me the noise was normal. I am getting ready to call the corporate office and wanted to see if anyone could tell me if you think this is what the problem was at 58k miles. Thanks for your help

Hello, a mechanic said I need a new tail pipe. The current tail pipe is rusted and hangs low. What would be the cost for a new tail pipe and labor?
Thanks.

Auto tran repair to replace spline gear for a leak? I was told the leak was fluid coming from the top of the tran and being forced thru the wiring. This is their solution to stop the leak. Is this true?

Hey: I was wondering if you have a diagram on how to remove the door panel and sequence on how to. I removed the 2 screws on the door latch bezel and armrest. Used a slim tool to pry open the door panel. I got all around, Something behind the armrest not sure but i see a nut of some sort. Also the lacth bezel not wanting to come out. A diagram and sequence to see whats behind and what needs removing would be greatly appreciated. So far did not break anything

Upon start-up about 50% of the time a large amount of white smoke comes out of the exhaust.
After driving about 1/2 - 3/4 of a mile the smoke is is gone.
I've noticed it usually happens when the engine is cold.

Had it tested twice, and unfortunately it did not smoke when tested. Any ideas?

put new fuel pump on will crank and run unless you give it gas then it will die takes 10 to 15 min to crank again samething

I have a 97 nissan pathfinder, 3.3 liter has 137,000 miles.. cranks but doesn't start, has new fuel filter, and i changed the timing belt and water pump at 107 000 miles, i can hear fuel pump hum with key on, I disconnected the line after the fuel pump and is shooting fuel with key on. I used my code scanner and it said camshaft sensor circuit P0340,EVAP SYSTEM P0440 I tested for battery voltage going to distributor connector, where the cam sensor is located when key on and and i get voltage, plus I checked the ground wire of that same connector with an ohms meter to ground and that's good. I'm suspecting either a camshaft sensor or PCM. problem. I'm getting spark to the spark plugs, it starts when I spray a little ether starting fluid in the intake, so i know it's a fuel problem. I've always worked on my own vehicles since working in the auto repair trade for 7 years, back in 1988-95 before switching to the equipment repair trade..

could i be missing something else to test.. before i gamble on buying a distributior, since the camshaft sensor isn't a seperate part and built into the distributor. what's your thoughts.

thanks

When I bought my car, the seller said it would need a new CV boot and it was relatively easy to replace, because he did the driver's side. I have asked several mechanics and they said it's hard to replace the boot w/o replacing the joint. How do I get to the boot/how do I replace it? Am I safe for now to load the cv joint up with grease so I don't end up with serious problems?

I have a pathfinder that has several unresolved electrical problems. Ther is a relay type plug on the passenger side of the engine bay that is not pluged into anything. Is this correct or did someone remove a relay? same with one I saw under the dash on the driver's side. Next, I've had problems with the alarm system. It worked, and then did nothing, worked, and now does nothing. I thought pulling the battery cables for a few seconds would do it, but it doesn't "reset" it. Lastly, I bought replacement horns because the system was messed up. I installed per given instructions. This truck isn't used daily, so when I came to start it 3 days after installing the horns, the battery was dead. I tested the horns alot the day I installed them, but is it possible for a horn to drain the battery? Also, incase the new horn setup is draining the battery, I want to give it power from one of the relays. I need to know what wire on either the main or fuel pump relay sends power out.

How do i remove the main batery fuse

my 90 pathfinder wont start the code it gives is a knock sensor i did a compression check and it only has 60 pounds all cylinders r about the same could it b the timing belt or jumped time

Dear staff: I BOUGHT A 2004 PATHFINDER CHINOOK NOTICED THE LEFT RUNNING DAYLIGHT NOT GOING ON BUT WHEN TURNING ON LIGHTS THEY ARE WORKING FINE. CHANGED THE BULB AND THE PROBLEM IS STILL THERE. NOTICED ALSO THE RIGHT RUNNING DAYLIGHT SEEMS BRIGHT OR STRONG COMPARED TO WHEN I TURN THE REGULAR LIGHTS ON. ANY IDEA WHAT IS CAUSING IT?
HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON..... THANK YOU.

When driving down the highway the truck will start to jump side to side. When I let off the fuel it stops jumping. It is the original suspension (350,000 KM) I was told by one person replacing the struts will tighten up the front end and stop it from doing this. I had someone else tell me it could be bushings in the rear suspension. When hauling my trailer with snowmobiles it dose not do it. I would like to fix it without spending a ton of money. Any suggestions would be great

i have a flapping noise when driving down the road sounds like it is coming from wheels somewhere - the tires are good - just had them rotated also!

It gets very hot very fast under the drivers seat from the floor up

I had a collision involving the front of my vehicle. Since I've gotten it back from the body shop the AC doesn't seem to work as good as before. I took it back to the bodyshop and they put more refrigerent in it. It seemed to work better for a day or so, but now it only works properly when you are moving and not so good when you stop. They checked it for leaks and it didnt have any. someone else told me that it could be that they put too much refrigerent in it. It does have the climate control system which concerns me about how much its gonna cost to fix.
