my torque converter seems to make excessive noise and suddenly went quiet for a couple miles for the first time since i bought the vehicle 1000 miles ago?

The lights in speedometer, fuel indicator and the console is not working. What should I do to fix this problem

From the start the machine starts to move in first gear, then the acceleration goes to the second, then third, etc. After stopping with the engine running (for example at traffic lights) is not transferred to the first gear. Remains at the third, which therefore makes it difficult to follow the beginning of the movement. Said that includes a third emergency third gear. After turning off the engine and then turn it on again triggered the first program again, etc. What could be causing this malfunction.
Thanks in advance.

not overly excessive play in steering but i definitley would like steering to be "tighten up" is lower ball replacement and alignment the solution?

My car quit running and was towed to a shop they say it's the timing belt. What is the estimated cost of a normal repair job for a timing belt?

Pathfinder would stall and not restart, but then would start and run fine. It was random both in stalling and when it would start. Used dry gas, changed fuel filter, had fuel pump checked and reads +50 psi, also pulled fuel line from rail and no problem getting fuel, cleaned MAF with MAF cleaner, new distributor installed, spark is blue at cap and spark plug. Knock sensor code was only code showing. Engine turns over but won't start now. Tried starter fluid in snorkel, engine still won't start. Any suggestions?

Will the aftermarket Maf sensors that can be found online for about 100.00 work as a replacement for the original part that Nissan is still charging 500 dollars for. The problem with these two codes is driving crazy! At this point changed every part except the MAF. Thanks for the great information! Wish my repair place would have looked at this. The MAF would be the last step.

I have a 2005 pathfinder with 72,000 miles and sometimes I hear a squeaking type noise that seems like it is coming from the dash area, but can't really pinpoint. Doesn't happen all the time, just random. Any ideas??

What is the fair value of my above car ? or am I better of trade in (at what valUe?)

How do I change in cabin microfilter?

Vehicle sometimes feels like it takes too long to stop, I put the rear wheels in the air, using a floor jack. Put the vehicle in drive, and spun the rear wheels, when I would depress the brake pedal the rear wheels would keep spinning,and the anti-lock light is on. Is this normal? already tried replacing both wheel cylinders for drum brakes, and shoes are also new. Can anyone help me with this issue? any suggestions?

Trouble Pulling Fuel Pump From 2000 Pathfinder

The lights on the instrument panel wont come on. I check the bulbs and they are good and it does have power. Could it have something to do with the computer?

Im looking at buying a used pathfinder and want to know what to expect in repairs down the road

Need to have the water pump, timing belt, thermostat replaced

As the new owner i'm not aquainted with what's going on with
this particular vehicle yet. So, wanting to avoid breaking the timing belt. I should take what steps to check it?
I should prolly just have it replaced? That way I know huh?
Can I get an upgrade? Would like to start upgrading everything I replace. What's the hot ticket for upgraded/racing parts? Who's who? Maybe that's a bad idea.Looking for direction.

Everything in the car is working with the exception of the signal lights.

I just bought a 98 pathfinder. The instruments including the gas, speed, rpm, and even temp will work one minute but not the next. Sometimes some of them will work, but not others. Can I confirm that replacing the cluster will fix this problem or might it be something else?

Where's the best place to get good repairs and affordable prices? I have a hard time believing it costs over $1000 to change out a waterpump and replace a timing belt... please help
