truck rocks and sway on freeway when going over dips

I have an 07 Pathfinder that has developed an engine knock. It is most noticeable as the RPM's increase and it is just about to shift. I hope that is might be a loose heat-shield on the manifold like I once had on my 96 PF but I really don't think it is. Since it has been well maintained, and I have owned 7 Nissan's, this is new for me. If anyone else has had a similar issue or if there is a recall, please let me know.

i have had the car about one year, my two kids would drive
it to work etc. They both complained about the gas the vehicle goes through and the money they were going through.
I just started driving it this week, seems to idle okay,
sometimes seems to give a little back kick when taking off from a stop sign, otherwise rides nice.
since i bought it a year ago have changed air filter tranny filter and oil as needed. my son replaced five of the six spark plugs,
he could not get one on the firewall side.
His patience were getting thin so I told hom I would bring
it in to a shop and see if they could change the spark plug.
I was looking for advice for improving gas mileage. i do not
smell any gas around the vehicle or no spots under the car that indicate a gas leak.
no red lights on the dash and no fault codes set in the computer.
I AM NOT REAL FAMILIAR WITH THE NEWER CARS WITH FUEL INJECTION AND THROTTLE BODIES.
I READ SOMEWHERE ABOUT CLEANING SOME PART OF THE THROTTLE BODY
WERE CARBON BUILDS UP, IS THEIR MORE AREAS TO CLEAN ON THEM
BESIDES THE MESH MATL. AT THE INTAKE?
REPLACING THE DISTRIBUTOR WAS ALSO MENTIONED IN SOMETHING I READ, IS THIS SIMILIAR TO THE PRE FUEL INJECTION AND EMISSION AUTOS, ROTOR AND CAP, (DISTRIBUTOR)
ANY IDEAS THAT MAY CONTIBUTE TO GETTING BETTER MILEAGE I WOULD APPRECIATE.

this IS A pathfinder 4x4 is a 1998 with 130k miles.
IDEAS WELCOME, I WILL BRING TO SHOP IF THE THINGS I CAN DO MYSELF DO NOT MAKE A DIFFERENCE OR SHOULD I BRING TO
EXPERIENCED NISSAN MECHANIC WERE IT COULD HOPEFULLY BE DIAGNOSED QUICKLY AND REPAIRED/CORRECTED.

My 2006 Nissan Pathfinder started to leave small puddles of oil on the garage floor, but appears to be leaking near the location of where the oil filter is located. I then noticed that the oil pressure gauge stays near the high, and is actually pegged at high when I accelerate. I first thought oil filter was loose, but it was hand tightened pretty tight, and it does not leak the oil all the time

I have the following fail codes: p0505, p0325, p1401, p0300, p0136,and p0156. What I would like to know is what the specific parts are so that I can purchase them at a discounted rate.

Why am I having such a hard time finding aftermarket parts for my pathfinder? When I look for lift kits and ARB bumpers. I can find them for up to 1995 or from 2000 and up but can't find them for a 1998

Why when i drive my pathfinder over 20 miles does it start tacking hard and will not hardly move when u start out in drive? It only does it when it gets hot and it just keeps tacking hard and wont change gears.

I have a 97 Nissan Pathfinder with 186,300 miles on it. Last Tuesday, Nov. 2nd, I was on my way home when my car stalled on me. I put it in neutral and pulled over and tried to get it restarted. I had about a quarter tank of gas in my car at the time. I got it restarted after about 2 tries. As I drove down the road, it would sputter on me and either keep going or stall. It stalled out about 3 times on my way home. The next day, it wouldn't start. The starter was rolling, but it wouldn't turnover. I tried adding octane booster in case I had bad gas in my car. It still wouldn't start. The next evening I tried to start my car, and it finally started and stayed running, but I noticed I had to hold the key a little longer than normal. Friday morning, my car started so I took it to work. Again, I had to hold the key a little longer than normal, but once running, it seemed fine. On my way home from work, it sputtered on me like it was going to stall, but stayed running until I got home. Saturday, my car would not start at all again. Sunday, I was able to get it started, so I took my car to the gas station and completely filled the tank. I also added the rest of the octane booster. Later that evening, I went to start my car, and it would not stay running. I am figuring the problem to be my fuel filter and/or pump. Does this sound right? If so, about how much would I expect to pay for a new fuel pump?

the ac blows on high in all levels. I was told i need to replace the ac auto amplifier. how do i get this part

I was trying to find the speedometer sensor can anyone tell me where that is located? Thank you for your help!

The heater only works when the truck is in motion. What could the problem be?

The vehicle will occasionally not start, when left sitting for a day or two it will start again. The battery is fine, the starter is new, when you attempt to start the starter does absolutely nothing, you hear the relays activate, but the solenoid on the starter itself seems completely inactive.

when i start off in first gear all is good but when it get ready to shift into 2 i get a loud sound so i slow down and then it changes into 2nd gear. This only happens the first time you put the car in drive.it will only happen again when you take the car out of drive. What could this be?

the plug in the the center consol is dead

Within one month we had to have our fuel level gauge replaced after the dte indicator dropped to "empty" on a full tank of gas and the "Service Engine Soon" light stayed on. Then at 68k miles the battery died. The vehicle drove fine to the battery place, after getting a "jump" from someone. Then, after the new battery was installed we tried to drive off and the car was stuck in a higher gear which made it almost impossible to get going at a green light, etc. We took the car to the dealership and were told that the "Valve body solenoid" had to be replaced. The car was stuck in O/D and the SEL was on. The part costs more than $900.00 plus the cost of labor. I am not sure what the battery change could have done to cause this but ... it clearly had something to do with this problem. Have you ever heard of this before? In addition to this problem, there is no way to shop around for better prices because the one part we need is an exclusive Nissan part that (as we are being told now) is on the national back-order list. So, it could take weeks before it comes in and the car can get fixed!

Just replace the slave cylinder and while i was bleeding the line, fluid filled the rubber boot and popped the boot off, is this a bad new cylinder i bought? Should I just get a new one and try again? Or could there be a nother problem?

2004 Nissan Pathfinder. While on the I5 going 70mph my engine lost its top end power. I equate it to losing 1/2 of a $bbl carb... still going but no get up go harder, faster (ie need to pass?) I have been told possible O2 sensor and Cam sensor(P0304) I've been told that the can sensor is a regular issue with this engine? any ideas and or costs associated?, thanks in advance

The mechanic estimates the cost to replace the 1991 Nissan Pathfinder starter to be approximately $500. Is this reasonable and what all should he be replacing?

truck wont start even if i jump it

I have a '98 Nissan Pathfinder. 189,000 miles. Original engine and transmission. Brand new radiator and hoses, replaced last week. New air and fuel filters, only a few months but nearly 10,000 miles ago.

Driving along at freeway speeds last night, the engine suddenly began to "sputter". RPM's would not go higher than 2,000. As soon as they hit that level, the RPM would drop down to 1,000 or so, and work it's way back up to 2,000, before repeating constantly. Maxed the speed at about 25 mph. Engine never stalled or died, and even when I came to a stop it idled perfectly fine.

When I turned the car off, and turned it back on again, the problem went away for a few minutes, and then would come back on.

Also, while this was happening, the engine's temperature gauge shot through the roof and came to rest on the "H". Stopped car immediately when that happened and called tow truck. Note that the radiator and its 3 hoses and all coolant were replaced last week after I discovered a leak in the radiator. Not sure if this is related or not, but the mechanic who did the work won't be in for a couple days, so I thought I'd try this venue out for some ideas.

I need to tap the starter to start the truck so I can get it to the mechanic.

the acceleration of the car is going low a makes the car die
