Customer Question
Well I have a...

Well I have a new battery & alternator and no charging. It is a 1987 Pathfinder. I also replaced the timing belt & distributor.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the timing belt? Have you ever had to change it before?

ZERO

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

Yes, replace alt. Check all fuses. Not sure what else to check. I do have quit a bit of mechanical experience. Not a mechanic though.

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

That's all I can think of

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!
