3.5 128k miles; Go to drive, and acceleration nearly bottoms out, but keeps going slowly. seemed to only be on hills for awhile but now on flat roads too. SES light on when it bottomed out, and after driving for awhile & put in park the idle is rough--kind of louder than normal; whole cabin shakes like someones jumping in around inside; if given enough opportunity (say on the interstate) itll start sluggishly, but eventually able to get to 65, and cruise--if I hit the brake
tho it starts all over with only going very slowly (had to put flashers on)--kind of rough in the shift. Took to garage day before yesterday--said code was for a camshaft sensor--they replaced it; drove it off the lot, and the SES light pops back on when I go to accelerate & it again bottoms out to a slow speed only.
JA: Is the rough idle intermittent or consistent?
Customer: intermittent (seems like only after driving for a period of time).
JA: Are you fixing your Pathfinder yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: NO--my garage guy installed a new camshaft sensor (that was the code he got from it), and no change.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: my pathfinder has burned oil since ive owned it. have to top it off regularly or it goes empty (no signs of leaks anywhere).
