Unhappy 1993 pathfinder - 316,000 kms.

My green pathfinder have 316,000 kms.

At Xmas, my Grannie pay $500.00 for a tune-up and mechanic change the front drive shafts and two shocks - using the parts from our red Pathfinder for the green Pathfinder. Grannie says no more of her money go into green Pathfinder.

I not sure if I should put anymore of my money into it because of the kilometers on it. What do you think?

I still have my Toyota and I pay to fix it up. I will spend my money on it, too.

If it's alot of money getting sucked into the two trucks I would consider selling it Taxi... I know it's hard to get rid of a vehicles sometimes but it all depends on how much $ your putting in and how much upkeep they need...


Good luck in deciding on their future!!

Pathys will go forever if you keep them well maintained. However unless you need two vehicles probably worthwhile to get rid of one. Personally I'd keep the toy.

It runs good. I buy the red 92 Pathfinder for parts for the green one. I use lots of the parts for the green one.

In the winter, when we start the motor, the reverse R not work. Have to let it warm up and then it work just fine. My mechanic, good man, say maybe later change the transmission from red 92 to green 93 ; if the R - reverse goes.

Maybe I keep 93 green until no more parts from 92 red are left. Good idea!

500 isnt crazy for a full tune up maint/repair on a fuel injected vehicle if paying a mechanic to do all the work.
remember most mechanics charge 75-125 per hour for there services plus supplies and parts then the goverment wants their share. it adds up quick.

when its time the toyota aint gonna be any cheaper. i think its time some of your mechanicaly inclined friends step up and teach ya a thing or two bout maintenance repairs and trouble shooting.
if ya were closer to me I'd be more than happy to show around the tool box and trouble shooting tools

Sounds like a plan Taxi; and if the Nissan runs fine and you're not hard up for cash, I'd keep them both and have fun. That way if you fuck up one, you have the other to go get parts.

My 2 cents
