Question about 1990 Nissan 300ZX
When I drive my car for about 5-7 miles and come to a stop, on restart the transmission will not shift it gets stuck in 2nd gear after I stop the car for an hour and drive again at 45 mph its shifts fine?????
The car is going into what is called "limp mode". It's detecting a problem of some sort that is drivetrain-related (which could mean a faulty sensor or transmission controller, or a fault with the engine), and it's locking the transmission into second gear to protect it from excessive road speed and RPM. Do you have a check-engine light on? Whether you do or not, you may have a stored fault code in the car that can be read with a code scanner, and if so, that'll be a good starting point. If you can get the car scanned, it'd help a lot - post back up with what you find out and we'll take it from there.
