Hello and thank you for your question!
My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with your question today.

Is the check engine light on?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
No

Does it do it consistently enough that I can have you try a test and you will know if it works?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Hmm I dunno, sometimes it starts perfectly with no problems

I am going to have to open this up for the other experts. We don't have diesel Pathfinders in the US so I simply don't have any experience on them.

Please do not reply or it will lock it to me.

Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

I will be online later this evening around 7:30 pm EST. Can I work with you then?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Sure thing

Has the glow plugs been checked?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
No

That would be the first thing I would check cause if the glow plugs is not warming up the cylinder enough, it may have issues igniting the fuel when first trying to start.

Do you have any more questions on this?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
We replaced the filters and added some injector cleaner that's all so far

Has that helped?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Not yet. I can buy and install glow plugs cheaply though. I'll try that today/tomorrow.

ok

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I asked a mechanic to try it, but he said you need a Nissan dealer to replace the glow plugs because it requires a special tool.I put in some liquid that removes water from the bottom of the fuel tank and some cleaner and that has solved the problem.

Glad you got the problem resolved.

If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask.

If not, and you're satisfied with my help, please Rate me. That is how I get credit for my work. I hope I have provided you with Excellent Service.
