Question about 1994 Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

1994 Pathfinder just shut off and now won't start

I was reversing out of my driveway yesterday and as soon as I went to throw it in drive to straighten it out and park it, it just shut off completely. I tried to start it right then and there and got nothing. All the lights work and everything perfectly fine. I have full power in the truck itself. I go to turn the key in the ignition and it just keeps trying to start but doesn't. It makes the sound it does when you run out of gas and try to start it, but there is a full tank of gas in it. I am completely clueless on what it could be. I tried jumping it and got nothing, even though I know its probably not the battery have power still.

Any advice would be helpful, thank you so much.


BTW, this is my brothers fixya account. Still you may e-mail me at if you wish

Sounds like it may be the crankshaft sensor

I lost reverse on my 1994 chevy suburban 454, but forward gears

You start buy pulling the unit out & having it

There is no other fix, but to completely strip your
trans & go thru it.

If the truck is not on the second trans in 18 years,
I would be surprised

Be thankfully you don't have a transaxle,they never
make 100,000 miles & in some case only a few years.

Is it manual trance-mission or automatic. If it is manual you have to check shifting leaver system & gear selector unit. If it is automatic check selector switch,wiring harness & valve body.

Auto Mits Legnum vr4 when put into drive or reverse engine shuts down. Is idling below normal. Neutral is just under the 1 but as soon as put into gear idle drops to zero.

Could be many things. Bad torqe convertor, bad idle air control valve, bad egr valve. So many things it could be. Id spend 60 bucks to get it diagnosed that way your not throwing needless parts at it. Hope this helps

Have your transmission oil filter changed;
it is located under the transmission pan
The oil is what makes the transmission shift
When you shut off the engine it stops the transmission pump then when you start up again the transmission shifts until the filter clogs again
