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

1997 Carolla- engine dies when shift to reverse or drive, starts again when put in park. Is this a transmission problem or starter/ignition problem?

There is a switch that only only allows you to start the engine in Park or Neutral. It sounds as if yours is faulty or has a bad connection. Finding it will be the problem.

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.

Hello, I went outside yesterday to leave for work and when i put my 1992 toyota camry in reverse it was not doing so... we had to push it out of the driveway so I could drive... every other gear is...

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
