Customer Question
Have a 2000 Nissan...

Have a 2000 Nissan pathfinder , its my sisters , they have had problems with the cars ability to stay running , and when it does stall , it wont restart , only to start later like nothings wrong , code pops up P0500 , can you give me some tips ?

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

There is no noise , its stalling out , lol

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

My nephew changed the distributer and fuel filter and pump , worked for about 1-2 months and boom , here we are again

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!
