I just did the PCV valve recently (82,300 miles) and most if not all the power seems to have been restored now. The factory original PCV valve was all clogged up and wouldn't rattle at all. Still can't believe the part cost $23.99 (Intermotor), dealership wanted $27.99 and have me wait 3-5 days. The hardest part was getting the clamp off the hose.

While I was at it, I did the PCV on the new to me Pathfinder, that PCV was rattling a little, but not as much as the brand new one, it was a lot cheaper at $8.99. I replace the one on the Frontier later in the week when I do the oil. Why the engineers hid the PCV valve for the KA24DE engine between the oil filter and alternator, I will never know.

Great! I don't understand why the pcv valve is not part of the scheduled maintenance.

Glad it worked and thanks for inspiring me to finally replace (or at least order) the PCV on the X and my wife's car

So the X just got some new tires, I felt like it was time to go and move up to a M/T tire, and I decided to give the Milestar Patagonia M/Ts a try. I went up one size over stock to 285/75R16. I ordered the tires from Discount Tire and they arrived in 4 days, the price for all 5 with installation + hazard insurance was under $1000. These replaced my BFG All-Terrain TA KO2s, which were the stock 265/75R16s. I was able to complete the melt mod a few minutes after I finished placing my order. I consulted with @nworker who graciously sent pics of the spots that needed to be reshaped. After performing plastic surgery, the countdown till arrival began.

I have owned the tires just a little over a week now and my first impressions are quite favorable. I intended to test them out on the dirt this weekend, but I encountered snow that changed my plans. I have just over 300 miles on city and highway and I have to say they seem quieter than the KO2s even given the more aggressive tread pattern. I can't wait to test them out on the dirt, but it looks like that will have to wait for Black Rock at this point.
nworker and TerryD like this.
