Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the fuel filters?

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

No..took it in.. they didn't put any effort but i have googled this before and there seems to be a problem

where is my answer? I refuse to give more money. Businesses thrive on positive feed back. Not negative. I already got the runaround from Nissan.
Nissan Mechanic: peterpete190, Auto Technician replied 3 months ago

The most common cause of this issue here is a fault with the exhaust shields.The break loose from the exhaust and start to vibrate causing this issue here.Most common is the one around the muffler area.

You will need to have the exhaust components checked over to see if any of the exhaust components are found to be loose or damaged or broken needing repaired or replaced for this fault here.

You will also need to have the engine and transmission mounts checked for any wear or being collapsed as these can also cause this issue here.

One of these here will be the cause in most all cases that I have run into myself with the exhaust shields being the most common.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete
