Customer Question
96 Nissan pathfinder, after...

96 Nissan pathfinder, after engine is warm, motor wants to cut out and spits and sputers at 2800 rpms or higher. Runs great as long as I keep the rpm under 2800.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

Manual, 87,000

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Pathfinder yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, I do all my own work, hobby mechanic for 30 years. This problem just showed up yesterday. I've changed the fuel and air filters....no change. Not sure if its related but my driver side exhaust manifold keep snapping clean off just above the catalytic converter flange

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, thank you for the help

What Customers are Saying:

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
