2006 Nissan Pathfinder. Above 40 mph it has a shudder

Customer Question
2006 Nissan Pathfinder Mechanic's...

2006 Nissan Pathfinder

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

Above 40 mph it has a shudder feeling under load, in neutral I can't feel it, not rpm related, no codes for misfire but changed the plugs anyway. I also checked the intake control valve solenoid and it appears to be working.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you seen the misfire code before? Has the car been stalling?

No codes, no misfires but that is what it feels like

I would check the transmission fluid to start with. Make sure it's not over full. If it is you could have an issue with the radiator mixing the coolant and transmission fluid. I would also inspect the U joints in the front to rear drive shaft. If you have a bad joint it can cause this type of vibration under load.

Finally, it is possible there is an issue with the throttle position sensor and the computer is having issues trying to determine which gar to be in. I would start here to look for the problem. It is also possible there is a code stored in the transmission control module that you can't retrieve with a code reader.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.
