    Allof75's 02 R50 Pathfinder Build- Still Alive!

    Does anyone have a successful strategy for preventing rodent damage? I tried soaking the engine bay (where the rats are targeting) with peppermint extract and this was the result. Seems like the ultrasonic deterrents aren’t much more effective. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Allof75's 02 R50 Pathfinder Build- Still Alive!

    I am happy to report, the Pathy is back on the road! Below is a picture of it resting at home just outside Santa Barbara. Now at 162,148 Im going to take the opportunity with the valve cover gasket replacement (Felpro) to replace the PCV valve (Beck Arnley), and intake plenum gaskets (Felpro)...

    Allof75's 02 R50 Pathfinder Build- Still Alive!

    Tragedy struck- The factory Jatco RE4R01A made it 162,007 miles before giving up the ghost. Going about 70-75, my torque converter went out last week on 101. Does any one have suggestions on quality transmission rebuilders in SoCal (Orange, LA, or Santa Barbara Counties)? It’s had a slight...

    Allof75's 02 R50 Pathfinder Build- Still Alive!

    Here’s a recent picture after finishing the brake service in Orange County when visiting family. I forgot to mention I’ve towed several trailers with the Pathy in the last year, mostly utility trailers under 2k lbs, a jet ski, and one empty car hauler that was its heaviest load at 3300 lbs. On...

    Allof75's 02 R50 Pathfinder Build- Still Alive!

    Hi All, I hope this finds all of you well given the remarkably difficult circumstances of the past several years. I took some time away from the forums to focus on school (happy to report I graduated from UC Davis in March of 2020), and work (I've started my own glass cleaning company, and...

    Interesting method on the transmission fluid, I may try to do the same. Nice and simple too, the pathy has the usual harsh 1-2 shift of that gen but seems to be a bit rougher lately. As far as pads, I've been having very good luck with my Hawk set.

    My 2001 Pathfinder (R50 ) mild/budget build

    Out of curiousity, what mod undid the line originally, and what did it improve?

    Excessive oil consumption in VQ 35 engine? R50 Pathy (followup)

    Oil burning seems relatively common on this engine family, as far as I know there are some people who continue to add oil, but at some point it may lead to all sorts of serious issues for that particular motor. That said, you might be able to find a low mileage motor in a wrecker's somewhere at...

    My 2001 Pathfinder (R50 ) mild/budget build

    Good lord it has been too long! Good to see it's doing fine, I'm loving the bumper setup. Good move on keeping it pretty light, that I know would be my issue with a bumper. Countless rigs go for bumpers that are needlessly heavy duty, and functionally no stronger, so good on you for avoiding...

    Very smart solution, that seems like it'll be a great upgrade. I appreciate attempting to stay closer to stock width. I'm sure this information will be helpful for a few sad frontier owners with busted diffs. :sombrero:

    The Lost Coast: Places I've Never Been in Northern California

    Awesome! I'd love to go back and do the entire trail sometime, that sounds like a great trip you had. Such a beautiful area, the bad weather adds to the experience too I think.

    The Lost Coast: Places I've Never Been in Northern California

    Sounds about right, on this trip we didn't meet any Tule Elk, but on a previous run up there, we definitely did. Met them coming down to the ocean as a matter of fact, which was strange at first. Thank you! Thank you! I'm glad I could help. Thank you! For me being from somewhat near Tahoe...

    The Lost Coast: Places I've Never Been in Northern California

    The next morning we went for a quick hike up to a tree farm, a misty morning awaited. We said our goodbyes, and went through town one last time. We went to the Empire Mine State Historic Park, which was the most producing mine in California during its years in operation. Providing work...

    The Lost Coast: Places I've Never Been in Northern California

    Continuing down the grade, we passed one of the last gallows used in California. The unlucky recipient of its use could not have foreseen the outlaw of its use only two years after his execution. After a rather long and winding white-knuckle drive through ice and quickly piling snow into...

    The Lost Coast: Places I've Never Been in Northern California

    Driving on through the island of Samoa, we ventured over to the OHV park to check out the surf and get in some much needed off roading. Here in California, it's rare to get to drive on the beach, outside of Pismo or a couple locations in San Diego, but to be this far North and so close to the...
