2002 Nissan Pathfinder SE 3.5L MIL Lamp on VIN: JN8DR09X22
thanks for the replies. I was overthinking this problem. The swirl solenoid was bad. Apparently resistance checks don't always tell you if a part is bad. Replaced the solenoid & it clicks loudly & allows vacuum to the swirl actuator like it should. Trouble codes: P1130.
