    I'm trying to find the original service bulletin on the 2014 pathfinder cvt issue. I believe something came out in 2015 or 16. All I can find on the internet is the 2017 version. Any ideas?
  2. R52 Transmission
    In the "bad old days," a common trick with shady used car dealers (not just the "Easy finance" operations out of a trailer, but even mainstream dealerships) to hide a bad engine was to replace the standard motor oil with a very heavy single viscosity oil like SAE 90 or the like, or fill it full...

    R52 Transmission
    Having a high pitch wine noise like a power steering leak but on the transmission side of the pathfinder. Is this the transmission starting to go? I have only had the studder a couple of times.
  4. R52 Transmission
    I recently bought a 2016 PF SL with 103,000 KMs on it. I have no idea if the previous owner changed the CVT fluid at 96,000 KMs (as instructed by the manual) so am going to get it flushed and replaced. I have a local transmission shop that services CVTs, and it's cheaper there than the dealer...

    First time poster... 2014 PF SV AWD. 2nd owner (unsure of previous services as it was a trade-in on a new Chevy). 225,xxx miles when I bought it 11-20-2020; 233,xxx now 12-05-2021). Jutter between 35-40 mph. I find it isn't as bad in tow mode (I inadvertently hit the button and noticed it didn't...
  6. R52 Pathfinder Service & Maintenance
    One of YouTube’s most popular auto mechanics, Car Wizard, purchased a 2013 Nissan Cube last year. He changed the CVT fluid at purchase, and recently he performed a 20,000 fluid change simply to show what a CVT looked like. Even The Wizard was amazed by what he saw. He discusses the need for...

    I have my PF since 2013 finally the cvt started acting up really bad and the dealer ask 6k for a new one whenever the ac is on the car gets really slow and hard to take off is it worth replacing the tranny? Car is fully paid I'm thinking on park it and wait the the 2022 pathfinder that's coming...
  8. R52 Transmission
    Well, the dreaded CVT failure finally happened to me. I was doing 50 mph with a car traveling closely behind me when my 2014 Pathfinder (with 94,500 miles on it) suddenly lost power and decelerated to less than 20 mph. The car behind me swerved and narrowly missed me and the car behind it almost...

    Hi, I'm a new owner of a gently used 2017 fleet vehicle. Realized the other day while looking at the driving history this vehicle was basically parked since 2018! Bought it to tow travel trailers (~3000lbs) and do mountain driving when the Kia Niro PEV would struggle through the snow... I still...
  10. R51 (2005-2012)
    Hi everyone, I have a question, could be stupid, but I’m just getting into working on my own vehicles and am eager to learn! Does having too much trans fluid in my 2006 pathfinder pose any bad issues for the future? I replaced my radiator, and lost some trans fluid in the process despite...
  11. R52 Transmission
    I have a 2014 pathfinder SL AWD. While out of town, I experienced violent shudder at 10-15 km/hr, this happened few more times before going away for no apparent reason. Continuing my trip home, after about 600 km I heard grinding noise, decided to have my car towed home. Nissan dealer's first...
