Listed below are Nissan troubleshooting tips given by Experts.

What does the P1320 misfire code on a 2001 Nissan Pathfinder indicate?

The P1320 code is for the ignition primary and usually indicates a bad coil or bad wiring from the coils to the ECM. The code is tripped when there is an open circuit between the coil and the ECM. Check the connections of each coil. If you find a defective coil replace it with Nissan factory coils.

Why is my 1997 Nissan Pathfinder not starting and not causing any spark?

To find out why there is no spark you will need to remove the distributor cap and crank the engine to see if the rotor spins. If the rotor is spinning it means that your timing belt isn’t broken and you may have a bad distributor. Bad distributors usually cause no spark issues. Another reason for no spark could be a faulty aftermarket alarm. You will need to locate the aftermarket alarm control unit, unplug it and see if it will start. The sensor that usually causes no spark is the cam sensor in the distributor. The cam sensor also determines injector pulse. If there is no injector pulse and no spark then you may have a problem with your distributor.

Why is the blower on my 1999 Nissan Pathfinder not working?

To find out why the blower is not working you will need to check the blower motor and the fuses to the blower meter for power. You will need to turn the key on and turn the blower on high to check for power at the blower motor. If there is no power then you will need to check the fuses. You may have a bad blower meter.

Why is my 1998 Nissan Pathfinder overheating?

In most cases overheating is caused when there is air trapped in the system. You will need to bleed the coolant system. To do this you will need to remove the radiator cap and install the coolant bucket. Fill the bucket in half and then raise the front of the car as high as you can. This causes any air in the coolant system to be brought to the highest point. You then need to turn on the car and put the heat on speed number four, recirculation mode and face mode. Rev the engine a few times as it helps move the coolant around and get the air out. After it gets heated and if there are no bubbles in the coolant bucket, the coolant system has been correctly bled.

How do I change the camshaft position sensor A circuit in a 2006 Nissan Pathfinder?

The best way to access the cam shaft sensor is through the passenger’s side front wheel. You will need to remove the wheel liner and then you need to visually inspect the electrical connector and harness for any loose, broken or damaged wires. Loosen the fixing bolt sensor, disconnect the crankshaft position sensor harness connector and remove the sensor.

To ensure that your Nissan Pathfinder is running smoothly and free of problems you need to keep it well maintained and get it regularly serviced. To find out how to get better Nissan Pathfinder gas mileage and solutions to common Nissan Pathfinder problems speak to an Expert.
