There is a rattle on the back right side sounds like it metalic. I'm thinking it's the strut, but maybe not. The batery and cables are on that side and I'm pretty sure it's not them. There is nothing else loose in the trunk. Any idead?
Here in GA we have an emission test that requires the vehicle to be run on a roller at about 15 miles per hour, holding steady for a few minutes. On the last test, my Pathfinder almost wouldn't do this. Holding it at 15 miles per hour, after a few moments the exceleration falls off. The tester barely could hold it steady enough for the computer test to complete. Any idea what is causing this? The tester thiks it has something to do with the idler/choking device between the air filter and the intake! Is that right? Fixable or needs replaced? We don't really notice anything while actually driving except that it might be a little sluggish in excelaration - but it is old you know!
