There is an adjustment on the selector lever on the side of the gearbox (lhs) make this longer to give the gear lever more travel.There is also an adjustment on the gearbox selector sensor for the electronics system.

Sounds more like the cable adjustment to the selector lever. Position the lever in P, disconnect the cable from the gearbox, physically put the lever in P on the gearbox and see if the cable will refit easily to the lever, adjust as necessary, refit and check. hope that helps

MY RAV4 KEEPS JUMPING OUT OF 5TH GEAR


worn gearbox or engine mounts allowing the gearbox to move and unlatch the shift linkage from its position, or the shift linkage is mal-adjusted and not properly engaged in 5th gear at all.

There may be a knuckle joint that can be adjusted to give correct shifter operation, it may be out of adjustment. GM cars are prone to this after reversing uphill in a manual car, your Nissan may be similar. The engine moves away from the area of the shift lever and pulls the knuckle joint out further than it is supposed to be and causes the gears not to enage securely any more.

Automatic gearbox 1990jetta2 car rides when gearlever is place in drive but when placed in reverce car donot want to move.


You need to get a Haynes manual or similar.
There are two cables which run from the shift lever to the transmission to select the PRND21.
If these cables are not adjusted precisely, you will lose a function. After the reverse gear stops working the out of adjustment won't allow the car to go into park. The park position becomes reverse.
The Haynes manual describes step by step how to do it. Cheap book (about $15).
Try other positions like neutral or part way through neutral and park and you may find your gear there. If you do, you are lucky; adjustment only.
If the cable is not the problem....you may need a transmission.

I have a jaguar xj8 and the gear got stuck in park ,and I can't put it in reverse or drive. How can I fix this problem


Most likely the lock out switch at the brake pedal is at fault, because in order to put it in in to any gear you have to step on the brake first ! Their is a switch located which prevents you put it in gear with out stepping on the brake pedal, so check this switch first.

I had the same issue...I went to Auto Zone and got a diagnostic...Came back that my Throttle Position Sensor was faulty...However after taking it to the dealer, and paying 135.00 for THEIR diagnostic...You can't simply buy the sensor. You have to buy a new Throttle Body at 902.00 + Tax atleast here in Vegas. I hope it's not your problem, but go get a FREE diagnostic first.
