NISSAN MAXIMA 5 speed manual hard to shift.

I have a 96 maxima SE with the 5 speed manual. When im rolling and slowing down it wont pop into first gear like 5 mph. It has to be completly stopped to go into first and even then sometimes it wont. I have to put it in second gear roll forward just a hair and then it will go into first. Also somethimes it when im accelerating and going to shift up to the next gear it misses the gear and just grinds.

the time the wrong gear oil is used which will make shifting more difficult and will reduce the life of the synchros. I recommend Redline MT-90 or similar basically a GL-4 only gear oil with the factory recommended viscosity will do. Absolutely avoid any GL-5 gear oil as that is the stuff that will make shifting more difficult and reduce synchro life. Lastly it could be the synchros themselves. nissan

Yeah I have pretty much memorized where to rev it to when im down shifting. It makes for a much smoother ride and is usually what it takes to get it into first. The cluch release point is right at the floor. I think all the upper pedal travel does nothing and its just a small movement at the bottom that gets it. I replaced the slave cylinder 3 months ago and i made sure it was bleed properly. I dont

DevonD wrote The cluch release point is right at the floor. That sounds like your problem right there. If your clutch released near the floor that means its not opening up as much as it should be which is what is causing your shifting problems. Go ahead and bleed the system be sure to bleed the damper as well as a lot of people miss that and that can make a pretty big difference. The damper should

NISSAN MAXIMA Hard shift from 1 to 2

When i accelerate there is a hard shift from the first gear to the second. I dont know what the problem is.. does this have to do anything with the knock sensor 1996 maxima with Injen CAI WarpSpeed Y Pipe & Hi Flow Cat Tokico HP Performance ShocksStruts V1Specs Cross-drilled Rotors 2004 maxima 18 wheels Ventus K104 245 45 18

And can this hard shifting cause problems for the transmission or any thing else

your tranny fluid If youve never done a fluid change then get a full tranny flush done. It will probably be over 80 to pump out ALL your old fluid and put in new. You can do a drain and fill but that doesnt change ALL your old fluid. Once you do a flush then you will do periodic drain and fills to maintain your fluid. When you have bad fluid it can definitely cause a hard shift. It did in my 92 maxima

hard. also if it turns out to be that none of this so far is it i agree with aaron on the tranny flush it will be a bit expensive but its worth it of instead of paying 1300 for a good rebuild of your tranny. I might also think about changing the tranny filter if its bad. I paid 120 for teh tranny flush and tranny filter so now you have more or less something to go on if you wanna do it. 1999 nissan

NISSAN MAXIMA Engine missing & Sloppy Auto trans shifting...Related

Hey all I have a 2002 maxima SE that has developed a couple of issues in the past year or so and I was wondering if these can be related. First At 18 to about 38 throttle my engine has been making noises as if it was misfiring...This clears up if you push the throttle to about 12 or greater. I cant notice any significant loss of power when I hear the noise so I am having a hard time trying to diagnose

NISSAN MAXIMA Overdrive switch and hard starting problem

Hello all. I recently purchased a 97 maxima GLE with a 4spd auto. I have two questions. The overdrive switch on the gear selector doesnt seem to work. If I press it to the off position the OD off light does not come on. This light does illuminate when you put the key to the ON position and then goes off so i know the light works. It seems to stay in overdrive during normal operation and will not shift

Hmm odd. To think that the light does show up when you shut the car off. Thats a good sign. If your tranny is shifting fine then your ecu should be fine as well. I would check to see how the connection of the wire on the overdrive button is. Just because everything else is fine but that. It might be that the switch isnt connected so its not registering any onoff command however also a possibility the cable is cut along the way. If thats not it then something could be wrong with the Ecu. The fact that the light comes on and the car drives and shifts fine makes me conclude that. But... Always wait to see what the pros think. Wait for Beancooker and the others to give an input on this before you take any of my input 2000 nissan maxima (210000 Miles) Still Runs Like New

NISSAN MAXIMA Hard Shift Btw. 1st 2nd Gear 57000

I have less than a month and less than 2000 miles before my powertrain warranty is gone. Ive had problems with the car not wanting to shift or shifting hard between 1st and 2nd gears. I was told by a mechanic friend of mine that a clutch pack is bad and needs to be replaced. Anyone have any ideas Any at all httpwww.cardomain.comride2572947

My fear is that Ill take the car in to be looked at and Ill be told to change the transmission fluid before theyll really look into the problem. From experience I know that changing the transmission fluid will only fix shifting issues temporarily meaning the car will act up again the day after the warranty expires. Would anyone happen to know if Infiniti gives out loaner cars if theyre doing warranty work on your own car Modified by ZGadson at 416 PM 10232007

NISSAN MAXIMA V CA33 Strange Transmission Problem - 2000 Maxima - Goes into Neutral while Driving

NISSAN MAXIMA P0325 code and transmission issues related

Ive been having some odd transmission issues with the maxima the past few days.

NISSAN MAXIMA Pilot bearing dead

So I have a maxima that makes a whooping noise during acceleration... I havent taken it in to have it looked at but the dealer said by my description of the sound it was probably a pilot bearing...

when i had my 95 altima i had the same issues shifting in certain gears was getting a bit harder with resistance i know not the same vehicle but trannies all act the same almost.

NISSAN MAXIMA IV 1999 Nissan Maxima SE Drop Resistor

NISSAN MAXIMA I 2000 Maxima stalling when I try speed up

Help me out guys my 2000 SE hesitates when I try to speed up. When I gradually speed up I have no problems but when I am around 45mph and try to floor it it feels like it loses power the rpms will hit between 4000 and 5000 and the engine revs up like it is trying to accelerate but it kicks in slowly. I took it and had it hooked up bc recently my service engine light came on and the computer said I had a bad o2 sensor. Could this be the cause of my problem

of power problem is not because of that. you have a bad mass air flow meter. if the final 5 digits of your meters part number is ad200 there is an updated part for that which will also require a reprogram of the ecm to the most current revision part number. be aware if you take it to the dealership they will miss diagnose this problem because it seams there is a fail safe in the computer most of nissan

is it possible to do i i just love the sound it makesand no the littles whistle thigns they sell on eaby suck httpwww.cardomain.comride2960959

Saw some incorrect info that I need to straighten out. A blow off valve relieves intake air pressure before the throttle plate after it has been shut to prevent damage to the compressor (turbo or centrifugal sc can apply in this case). If you have a turbo and dont have the blow of valve it can cause the wheel to slow down stop and even worse Ive heard that it can reverse the rotation... all of which
