Question about 1993 Nissan Maxima

1993 Nissan Maxima won't engage when in drive

My stepbrother was driving his Nissan a few months ago. while he was on the interstate, he says he thinks he heard a little pop noise, his car wouldn't speed up, as if it was put in neutral out of nowhere while it was still in drive. we got it back home and tried to get it working again. it will start with no problem. It's just the transmission won't engage at all. Any solutions?

Check to see if there is a broken axle. if not, check the shift linkage going from the hand shifter to the transmition.

    i checked under the car. the drivers side cv axle is covered in transmission fluid around the end against the transmission. would that really be the cause for this whole problem. if i replace it, would that fix the problem just like that?

SOURCE: transmission slipping

What you need is a "revolution sensor" I had the same exact problem. Replaced the sensor and everything is fine

SOURCE: ticking noise while car is running or idling

maybe is the air compresor and that's the noise that you hearing. Put the air in off if the noise stop, your problem is the compresor.

SOURCE: 1993 Nissan Altima Gearshifter or Transmission problem

Sounds like a neutral safety switch in problem #1 and a sticky or faulty solinoid in problem #2
The tranny has quite a few solinoids that are electronic which sometimes burn out or fail with high mileage.
Hope this helps
Regards
Sam

Give yourself extra time to get to work. Then start your car and allow it to sit for 5 minutes to make sure that the engine is ready to work. This means that it is warmed up, everything has been lubricated.

What light is it? You didn't say, and every light is labeled, so can you enlighten, (pun intended), me?

You might be able to look it up on YouTube, never know.

Good luck.

2001 nissan maxima won't engage in D


Hello
This engine and the transmission in this car are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM or TCM for the transmission, when problems like this occur fault code or codes are set in the PCM/TCM memory. What must be done now is to have the memory read to retrieve this fault code. This is called a system scan, the system is called the OBD2 electronic engine control system. Based on the results of the fault codes you perform diagnostics and repair the problem, that can be a sensor, wiring or even in rare cases the PCM/TCM has failed.

So the problem has been occuring for a year and you are just now trying to fix it? Sorry, I just simply do not understand why people do this...keep driving it until it won't drive anymore even though you KNOW it has a problem....Maybe you can explain this to me???

If you can hear the starter clicking when you try to start it, then you have a bad starter. If it makes no noise at all. then you most likely have a bad clutch switch.

I have a 1990 Maxima (auto trans) and Aamco rebuilt the trans a few years ago. Suddenly I was driving it and it just went into neutral and now it won't go into any gear. I checked the linkage and it is...


Did it go into neutral by the lever moving while you were driving or leve stayed in D but car was just revin g with no gain in aceleration.
It would be cheaper to get the gearbox replaced than to have it repaired.Check if you have enough fluid in the gearbox.

I thought this was free support. Apparently I was wrong. How did I fix it? Easy, I broke down on the freeway and got towed home on a flatbed! That was easy!!
