When drivimg after awhile maybe one to two min's the truck will stop going likes it's in "N" gear the moter runs. If you turn off the eng and wait a little while then you can go again but then it does it again. It's a automatic. Could this be something simple. Thanks

    Unfortunately it is unlikely to be anything as simple as a fuse. If the engine stays running the engine is mechanically OK, the fuel and ignition system is OK. Something is causing the drivetrain to disconnect form the wheels. I presume your Pathfinder is an automatic transmission. How often does this happen? Could be a transmission problem. What do you do to get the power transmitted to the wheels once this happens?

    I'm not really a tranny person but I know that a clogged filter (screen) will cause that also. Especially, if you haven't had the tranny serviced in a while.
