    Hi,

    I am from Trinidad and Tobago. I have a 2001 Nissan Y11 Wingroad that uses the QG15DE engine. I am doing a transmission replacement this weekend and Im wondering what is the best ATF oil to use and how many Quarts of ATF will it take to do the replacement of the transmission? See link below for the actual picture of the car...

    Hi
    Do you know if this issue affects the 2.5L diesel version of the Pathfinder? All the references I have seen have been to the 4L petrol.

    I was wondering if I could ask you for some advice? I don't want to be an askhole and pick your brain for some of your hard learned knowledge(and no doubt costly), but this is simply regarding tools, so I hope you won't mind.

    The only thing I might add is that there has been a lot of weird starting issues caused by bad battery connections; loose battery cable connections seem to be common on these Pathfinders and same generation Xterras and Frontiers. Try turning the connection at the battery by hand and see if you can get it to turn. If you can, clean and tighten or replace the terminal as needed.

    My friend had a 2005 Pathfinder in the shop that had intermittent no start issues with no stored codes and it turned out to be a faulty ECM. I do remember other Nissan models (I believe the L31 Altimas were one of them) that had ECM issues in very cold weather. Obviously, it's difficult for me to say what your problem is from where I'm at and the last thing I would want you to do is replace an ECM and still have the same problem. One thing I would be interested to see when you duplicate the problem is if the injectors are firing; this can be tested by installing a noid light into one of the fuel injector harnesses and cranking the engine. If the light flashes, that means the ECM is "firing" the injectors. I'm not sure if that would help with the diagnostics, but would be of interest. I also don't see where jumping the vehicle would cause the coils to start firing. The power transistor is built into the coil. All the ECM does is trigger the coil as to when to fire.

    ... Sorry, here's the rest.
    I can jump the truck off of a charger set at 10 amps, or off of another running vehicle and it will start fine. Bought a nice jumper pack (350 CA). It or a non running car will not start the truck when having this cold crank but no start issue. I assume therefore, that with enough amperage, wherever the problem is, I get enough spark to get though to the coil packs and fire the engine off when jumping from the charger or running car.
    I was wondering if you have come across this issue. (BTW, I have a buddy that works at a dealership. I've had no check engine light but had him put it on his scanner (was not cold and starting fine when we checked it) but it showed nothing.
    I really appreciate any input you may have. So sorry for such a loooong post. Just wanted to give you a somewhat detailed explanation of what I've tried so far.

    Thanks again for your time,

    Jim

    Hi smj999smj

    I have a 2007 Pathfinder that for the past 4 years has had a crank but no start issue in temps in the single digits (which we get a lot of here in Wisconsin). Every time the temp dips below around 10 degrees F or so I have a consistent cranking but no start issue.

    When the issue happens the engine cranks normally but never starts. I have an ignition issue (or at least not fuel related). I hear the pump prime and I get no spark at the coil packs when the cold crank issue occurs. During nice weather I've tried separately cold storing in the freezer, at 0 degrees, both the ECU and the IPDM overnight to mimic the issue. Sadly, the engine starts fine after doing so. When the no start occurs in cold temps, I've tried heating the ECU, IPDM, Cam Sensor (drivers side bank, the other is a little difficult to get at), and crank sensor, all separately with a hairdryer to warm them up enough to start, but still the engine doesn't start...

    Well, if it's not leaking oil externally and you are losing oil, it much be burning it. Hopefully they sent the head out to get resurfaced before they re-assembled the engine. Another possibility would be a clogged PCV system. If the PCV system is working properly, my next test would be a cylinder leakdown test.
