Having problems with your 2005 Nissan Pathfinder LE ?

I just purchased a used 2005 Pathfinder and just learned of my potential problem with the radiator/transmission cooler assy.

\015 I just purchased a used 2005 Pathfinder and just learned of my potential problem. My question is wouldnt it be wise for me to have a new radiator/transmission cooler installed to prevent this from ever happening? Did they redesign the new radiator//trans cooler to prevent future occurances since this is only on models thru 2010? Should I have a new radiator put in and a new transmission cooler that bypasses the radiator system.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 18-02-2019

Answers :

You have no choice but to buy & install a new radiator

That is something you should have researched before
buying,not a big deal unless the trans cooler fails then
so fails the trans

Also I believe you have to drop the fuel tank & change the
sending unit as the fuel tank is deformed
That part may be avail under some govt mandate & free
but not the radiator

The cooler your asking about is inside the radiator, not the one
out front of condensor you can see

You don't by pass the radiator nowadays with all the computer
controls unless your a sharp & perceptive person who can know
the results of doing so.

There is lots to read on the internet & I have done a lot of it,
years ago considering buying a nissan frontier, I have yet to
decide about

I would buy an aftermarket big name radiator & install yourself
then see if you can get the sending unit for free frem a dealer
& intall that as well

When you get a timing chain noise- the updated Borg Warner ones
can out in Nov 2009 for the 2010's on the assy line
