I am looking at a 1992 Nissan Maxima to replace the vehicle I have and my husbands uncle has it. He said that it runs great but when he put it in gear it wouldn't go. Then he shut it off for a few minutes, restarted it and it went fine. Is there a trans lock or something on the manual 5 speeds that could be going bad?
No trans lock. The clutch could be bad or the clutch master or slave cylinders. Check the fluid level in the clutch system resivoir.\015\012How does the clutch pedal feel? Is it firm and returning normally? ... Nissan Maxima
My 97 maxima shuts off while driving only sometimes. completely unpredictable but only when in gear. three mechanics have not been able to figure it out. i do notice that its more prevalent when the engine idles. it will shut off. i will start it back up. as soon as i put it in drive it will sputter and shut off. it will start again and struggle to stay on. i see the rpm drops below 1k when its about to shut off. i little while later its ok. by that time i dont want to drive it anymore. i now us

My trany on nissan maxima 1996 works ok, when it works, but it jumps out of gear and makes griding noise, but when it locks in it sounds like new, problem is it jumps out of gear at any time, very unreaeble, is it bad PCM power train module or AT solenoids?????
This is going to be one of the Solenoids or the TCM module. Have the TCM tested, if it is good you will have to pull the pan and test each of the Solenoids, I forget if there are 3 or 4 of them. Now, I'm sure one of these are the problem however, i ... 1996 Nissan Maxima

I have a 2001 Maxima with approx 142,000 miles. When the car is warmed up good, it sometimes will either not shift out of 1st gear, or it shifts into neutral & I have to stop the car to either shut it off for a 5 -8 minute cool down, or let it shift back to 1st gear before proceeding. I have a intemittent "service engine soon" led which I had checked and the code that we got was "J74" which I was told was a transmission speed sensor malfunction or failure. I took the car to my Nissan dealers
Possibly get speed sensor replaced this could be causing problem without speed input to control module the module doesnt know what gear it should be in or use\015\012have this part of speed sensor circuit tested ... Nissan Maxima
I have a 1993 dodge grand caravan with a 3.3 liter motor and a overdrive transmission that has 248000 miles. It was working good no problems till about a month ago. Then one day it didn't want to shift up any higher than 1rst or second gear. After shutting off the engine and restarting it was fine. This routine went on for a week or so. Then it started shuddering bad and stalling at stop signs ect like it was'nt shifting down into 1rst gear. Restarting the engine doesn't solve this problem. I've
Can't say I know more about that transmission that you but i will tell you this much, that I have been there, done that, and both times ended up at a tranny shop, too late to save it. &1500-$2000 later, back on the road. I hate to admit defeat a ... 1993 Dodge Caravan
Buick Lesabre I have a 91 buick lesabre .i drive it every day .one day i took off it would mot shift out of first gear. so i took it home and shut it off and checked vaccum lines all was fine. cranked it drove it 5 more months till it did the same thing want shift out of first. this time it stays in first gear no matter what .i think its not a bad ****** .any advice would help. 91 with a 3.8 6 cyc
I would check a couple things, the vacuum modulator and the passing gear cable, a clogged filter will not prevent it from not shifting, it would slip instead so that can pretty much be ruled out. you have the old school 3800 and they have decent ... Cars & Trucks
94 Olds Cutlass Supreme driving after warm trans free wheels until you pull over put in park and shut car off. Start car put in gear and drive away untill it does this again. Seems like a sticking pressure releif valve or the govenor valve sticking. I had a 93 Grand Am that had a bad torqeconverter solinod that acted similar with the shut down wait restart but it would lock the converter and not release so car would buck and die like not putting the clutch. This has me stumped Thanks for any Hel

05 Pathfinder, 97,000 miles, always had updated maintenance and runs great. Yesterday it shook hard at 45 mph like trying to shift but kept going. 1 minute later it started shuddering, in gear, and would not move when I pressed the gas. The check engine light and other things were flickering badly. I put it in park, shut it off. It started and ran fine after that. What happened? Computer chip? Dropped cylinder? Transmission?

Hmmm you have addresssed a lot of the possibilities and I sympathize with you for the headaches, did you have a look at another coil or leads? I would triple check the ignition timing. Sorry couldn't offer much more help, really need to visually insp ... 1983 Dodge Cargo
I have read the question about the crankshaft pulley wobbling really bad and needing a harmonic balancer and my question is....is the harmonic balancer and the crankshaft the same thing? I have the same problem with my 1996 maxima and I was doing research but people are telling me that the harmonic balancer and the crankshaft pulley are the same exact thing! Is that true? I am confused and i need to know cuz i have to fix my car and i dont want to buy the wrong part!
The end of the crankshaft is usually called a snout, because that is \015\012what it looks like — just a shaft sticking out of the front of the \015\012engine between 1½" and 2" in diameter, with a threaded hole in the front, and a key-w ... 1996 Nissan Maxima
Burns gas rapidly; exhaust emissions has pungent smell and is dark brown/black; idles rough at standstill whilst in gear; shuts off at times; fuel injectors were cleaned. One mechanic suggested throttle body is bad-maybe, maybe not. Help.
Try changing the engine coolant temperature sensor, and has the check engine light ever came on and stayed on? Durring this problem. If so have the on board computer scanned. Good Luck. From Ernie @ RedDeer, Alberta, Canada. ... Nissan Sentra

2 problems. first problem, once the truck is started it won't shift out of park. i have to shut it off and shift into neutral and start it again and then shift into gear. second problem, the truck sounds like its missing and then it sputters badly when accelerating. hooked it up to a computer and it said number 4 plug wasn't firing. i replaced all the plugs and plug wires and still got the same problem. replaced the coils and it still didn't work.any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
The shifter problem sounds like the shift interlock is not releasing, check to see if your brake lights work, if not probably a fuse or brake light switch. Your misfire could be a bad injector or no compression in cyl 4. You probably had code P0304 ... 1998 Ford F150 Regular Cab
