what causes the distirbtor to break going down the road

Is it possible for my truck to not start when its cold out. Truck is parked inside garage at night.

how do i get to the transmision filter things are in the way to remove it what do i take off to get it out

The light of the Airbag is flashing I checked it with the scanner they told i need to change the rotary casette what does this means?

2007 Nissan Pathfinder. New battery. Occassionally is hard to start. Happens usually in the morning when cold. Engine is turning over good but not catching. After letting sit, it will start the 3-4 time. Never shuts off, just hard to start. Suggestions??

How do you change it? The reverse light

THE ONLY WAY TO MAKE THE BREAK LIGHTS TURN OFF, IS TO REMOVE THE FUSE. I replaced the break switch, this did not work. Break lights stay on (with fuse in) even when truck is off. At a loss, what shouls I try next?? Checked all fuses, all good.

Hi Staff,
My factory fog lights on my 1994 path finder have gone out I need to locate the fuse any one with a fuse diagram?


where is the IACV located at. part #AC4016

Everytime I release the gas pedal, then hit it again the truck begins to wobble....why? My tires have been rotated, and balanced, shocks have been replaced....idk?

climate control just shut off for no reason I press any button and nothing works including the rear defroster I checked the fuses and they seem ok What could it be?

The cooling fan revs really high , at idle . Sounds like I'm doing 90 miles an hour when I'm really doing 5mph

How do you tighten the engine belts on a 1994 pathfinder??

Heater works OK while vehicle is in motion. However when vehicle is stopped, at a traffic light as an example, the heater blows cold air. As soon as the vehicle goes back into motion the heater starts working again.

Trying to repair an overheating problem with this vehicle. All culprits from the radiator to water pump, hoses etc. checked. Then vehicle seems to be running rich. Computer check revealed nothing wrong. Other symptoms, under load at 3K rpm the vehicle is sluggish. Checked injectors, fuel system, ignition and drive train. Wondering if it could be a blown head gasket and low compression. Any thoughts?

The rt front passenger window on my Pathfinder won't roll up, and I need to know how to fix it

In cold weather (below about 28F) my brake warning light stays on. Brakes feel fine, and hand brake operates normally. No squealing from brakes. Fluid resevoir is at mid level. No ABS problem.
The pads have been in for about 40K miles. I haven't checked them yet. Does this light come on when the pads get low?, Is this my first warning of low pads when the temperature is cold?

how hard is it to replace and where is it located? what need to be taken off to get to it and how long would it take?

my truck stops moving but the engine is still running, if i cut the truck off and restart it then put it in gear, it will drive and then it rolls until i stop it and do the same in cut it off and restart it. could it need the linkage adjusted and the filter and pan need to be changed?
