I have a feeling you have the transmission extremely over full. I actually am pretty familiar with maintenance service. When you drain the system off the pan you only retrieve about 35% of the fluid. I would start by checking the level on the stick agian and confirm it. If its over full drain it agian and add 4 qts for starters. Start the truck and with the brake pedal compressed place gear selecter in each gear for 10 seconds then return to park and check level agian. Total transmission capacity is 9qts. and the preferred fluid is DEXRON III / MERCON.

My 2005 nissan pathfinder does a shudder when hitting 60mph, but only when the overdrive is on...what causes this?


it sounds like u have transmission torque converter clutch shudder, I recommened you change the fluid and add 2 ounces of gear oil friction modifier, this works very well at curing this type of shudder issue.

Same as a lot of folks. 1995 Pathfinder. Without warning will not reverse. Hardly any difference in RPM between park/Neutral/Reverse. How can I tell if I need a rebuild ?


if it is the automatic transmission and the other gears work but it wont drive in reverse. then I suspect the transmission fluid is too low.
are you checking the fluid correctly?
my sister had a car that reverse went out on. my dad asked her, how long has it been doing this?
she said 6 months and that she had to always park in a position that she wouldnt need reverse.
my dad asked how is the fluid? my sister said its always full on the dip stick.
she showed my dad it was full.
she didnt check the level correctly..
she checked the fluid when the car was cold. she checked the fluid when the car had been sitting for quite sometime and when it was not running.
.
run the engine till the transmission is warm. shift the car in all the gears. leave the car running in park on level ground and check the fluid then.

Change transmission fluid and filter


You need special tools to do that plus you need to change both differentials and transfer case oil so my advise is just find a good mechanic who will do it for cheap. Thats what I just did anyways and it ended up being $240 for everything plus $50 for the special tranny fluid that I had to buy myself at the dealership.
