2001 Nissan Pathfinder with gas leak. Consumer states fuel leaked from the vehicle making it unsafe to drive. The dealer did not have all the parts to repair the problem. The consumer discovered there was a recall for the exact same problem they were experiencing. The engine light was on. The dealer replaced the 02 sensor. (recall 07V435000)

God, I a nurse I need to get to my patient as we speak this car is at the dealership they told me they cant find nothing wrong with it. Isn't there a problem with the catalytic converter with this vehicle.

The contact stated when attempting to pass state inspection the vehicle failed emissions testing due to a faulty rear oxygen sensor. The inspection site performed a diagnostic test that produced this code. There was a technical service bulletin NHTSA item 628220 concerning this problem. The vehicle has not been seen by a dealer or repair shop. There were no warning indicators to let the contact know there was a problem with the emissions system. Updated 03/09/06.

The oxygen senor failed. This caused the engine warning light to illuminate. The dealership repaired the oxygen senor.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 37,810 miles
My 2001 Pathfinder had only 37,800 miles when the service engine light came on. My dealership says it needs both rear oxygen sensors at a cost of over $500. It was my understanding that oxygen sensors weren't supposed to need replacing until 90,000 miles. There is a service bulletin (02006) regarding this issue. I feel that at least of portion of this cost should be covered under warranty. How do I check on this?
