    Just did this a few months ago on a 2000 pathfinder I found for $350. Definitely a PITA.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars B B says:

    I have always thought that Japanese cars were a nightmare to work on. This video proves me right

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ol'Roy says:

    Right when I'm about to comment about missing the last clamp I hear "you thought you caught me slippin" 😂 good job Ray!

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Garybonz says:

    Free Tip 2 : make pins out of spare longer bolts by cutting the heads off and slotting the end with a saw. Thread them into a couple holes with a screwdriver/ fingers so the pan doesn't slide around while installing the first few bolts.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Garybonz says:

    Free Tip : Aviation permatex ! I never have paper gasket problems when I use it. Not A Sponsor . . .

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Onaopemipo Odetunde says:

    Reeeeeeeeeeeee

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars james tanner says:

    Little bit grease on gasket works well and easy to remove pump next time

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gino Bragoli says:

    The only thing I would have like to seen is you clean the old oil/grease off the lower and upper cam belt covers! It wouldn't have taken long.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SEKAF says:

    Thank you and well done!

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wallace says:

    o m gggg! This job Proves that you are one of the toughest people on earth. Never work on these junky vehicles, again. Just so NO!!!

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars EP says:

    Pretty good work for a South Paw. Forget about it!

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Poita_m says:

    Man that's one big can of worms, your a patient man Ray. Good to see there are still people of integrity and honour out there👍I sure will never own one of these Nissan for sure.🙄

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mice InOz says:

    I am stunned, given the difficulty of getting the pan in, why you wouldn't put the silicone on the block surface instead of the pan to make the job easier? I have always considered it a matter of good practice and professionalism to properly clean the oily covers that were removed. Clearly, the covers were not cleaned. With work of this magnitude, I always replace all serpantine/drive belts whenever a timing belt is changed. Never had a customer complain or refuse this yet. Er, you missed tightening the inlet clamp closest to the Airflow sensor.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars KITEY 52 says:

    Good job Ray on the epic Nissan vlog . A long fix but a long lasting repair , well it may come back next week for a finer tune 🙂

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars B Moore says:

    PERSEVERANCE !! Great quality Ray ..

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars just a corgi says:

    Ray you need to get some sneak energy powder,all day energy no crash,zero sugar,low calorie,natural colors and flavors

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James DeArman says:

    cookin with propane on the front burner – you go!

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rennia Trayvold says:

    It might have gotten out of hand, but I bet it felt really nice to get it all put back together, didn't it?

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kenneth Harrison says:

    Went back and you did at the end. LOL

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kenneth Harrison says:

    You forgot to tighten the clamp behind the maf sensor.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Big Al says:

    Very cool

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RadioReprised says:

    I was trained to roll the motor at least 360 degrees and re-check timing marks when doing belt or chain?

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Velkanis says:

    hey ray you did exceptionally well with this nissan! i hate this engine in these pathfinders, so dam cumbersome 😂

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Victor Sears says:

    Your patience is enviable!

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jack cirrito says:

    Goooo Ray👍 I’m going to go out on a limb and say that almost anything work on from here on out will seem easy compared to this.
    I have one of those Pathfinders. It’s the hardest thing I ever worked on.
    But……..273,000 Miles on original motor, burns no oil and stil runs fairly strong. Amazing vehicle.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Les Reeves says:

    Why not put the sealant on thr block?

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars hot red says:

    Worst vehicle for even to add a quart of oil you have to have a special tool to open cap. I had a Nissan Sentra. Not anymore now I drive Toyota Corolla better gas mileage.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ian Small says:

    After watching this, I bet those PT Cruisers are lookin' a bit more "user friendly" than before

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vernon Bruce says:

    I think you are beginning to feel the pressure of owning your own shop. You are starting to ping off the wall with your thinking and it's effecting your work. You need to take a day off from EVERYTHING and regroup.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ReXeR says:

    Unproper tension on that timing belt and you owe that guy some new valves… not to talk about you not turning it quarter of a turn back then turning it twice to line them back up…

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars steve konrad says:

    You missed tightening the clamp At the intake. The clamp at the mass airflow never got tighten back up.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Glenn Webster says:

    Dude WTF..,, you didn't count your clicks.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Marty H says:

    That was a tough one… Great job as always!!!!!

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alex D says:

    Man he got me at the end

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tony Strollo says:

    Great Job Ray, you did it, I knew you would, you got everything back together, no leaks, and it sounds good. I know this job had you stress at times, you stayed with it, and got the job done. Proud of you buddy !!

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bruce Schmidt says:

    You didn't clean all that oily grunge with brake cleaner hehe

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jack cirrito says:

    The bottom of the fan shroud is removable so you can put the fan on first.
    Great perseverance Ray⚠️

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ReXeR says:

    Lmao no sealant on the oil pump gasket…. oh ohhh

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ed Wymer says:

    Good job Ray…
    That was a marathon job.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars FFGIG says:

    You're a good mechanic Ray and a great person don't rush it. Pace yourself, try not to stress, we want you around for a long time. Love your videos, thank you.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eric Filsinger says:

    Would anti-seize be a good idea on that main shaft under the sproket?

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Doug Vates says:

    After watching all that, I'm never buying a Nissan. Lol. Good god.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brad Martin says:

    "We're in the home stretch." Check video, 30 minutes left 🤔😆

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars George Bryan says:

    The pain is real!! I felt that. Great series Ray! The end was worth it☺

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tiffany Bolen says:

    My bad Ray after pausing and getting close to the tv I do see you installed the outer timing guide washer thank God that would be brutal hoss if you had to do that all over again job well done

    When your work on your own dime, your always lagging.
    When you work for someone else, your taking your own sweet time.
