Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1998 Nissan Pathfinder Owner Comments

problem #1

Pathfinder 6-cyl

While on my way to Virginia from Florida, my 1998 Nissan Pathfinder began to jerk, sputter, and cut off on interstate 95. So I took it to all tune & lube on Friday morning for a tune-up, after they replaced the spark plugs, wires, fuel filter, air filter, oil change, new belts, reset timing, fuel injector cleaning. It still did the same thing, so dave at all-tune kept my truck four days running all kinds of test and still could not figure out the problem, he called a friend at Nissan and he knew what the problem was. It was a casting flaw on the intake collector, leaking anti - freeze into the intake mixing with the gas and air. He told me that Nissan knew about this problem and never recalled the Pathfinder. The bulletin came out on April 1, 1999 T.S.B #ntb99-015. All-tune told me that it would cost me $700 dollars to fix this problem. I drove my fiancee to Virginia to start her new job at V.C.U she has to take cab to work for $80 a day for a serious problem that Nissan should have taken care of along time ago.
