Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I have a Nissan Mistral 1996 Auto 4WD Turbo diesel which is giving me a headache! I bought this from a 2nd owner and the car starts well, goes into 1st&2nd gear then starts struggling and revs go past 2.5, I press speed it goes over 3 revs then strugges past 40-50kmph. REverse is fine. I have had the gearbox changed twice now. My small town mechanic does not know much about auto transmission. Initially changing the oil would work but then it didnt so we got the gearbox changed. Then the car was fine for 3-4 months then now since changing oil doesnt work we were told to change gearbox again. This time around after driving for 1 week it has the same problems again. When the oil was changed this time it ran fine for a few minutes only. The mechanic showed me the transmission oil it had metal shavings and black rubber specks in it. What do you recommend next? I have never changed the transmission filter nor had a diagnostic scan done. Please help!!

SOURCE: auto transmission will not engage in DRIVE gear when starting.

IT IS THE STRAINER INSIDE THE PAN IN THE TRANSMISSION,WHEN ITS COOL THE FLUID IS TO THICK TO TRAVEL AND GRITTY TO GO THROUGH THE STRAINER SCREEN,BUT WHEN THE TRANNY WARMS THE FLUID ITS THEN ABLE TO FLOW THROUGH THE SCREEN AND SHIFT PROPERLY.

did you have a transmission flush? because its bad for older cars to get flushed because the acids they use eat away the seals and mess up your transmission more...i would recomend using some transmission conditioner

Nissan mistral auto 1998 losing power and sometimes stalls have to push red pin on gear shift lever to start.


The red pin on the gearshift lever is to allow selection of neutral in an emergency when the key is not in the ignition, because there is an interlock between the gearshift lever and the brake pedal. When you start the car normally you will hear the click of a relay when you stand on the brake to select any gear.
It sounds like there is a problem with the alignment of the lockout switch either on the gear lever or the switch or relay connected to the brake circuit.
get the codes read on the computer to give you some indication. I can't see how this has anything to do with the losing of power.
these vehicles have a reputation for problems with the eart straps from the engine, trans etc to the chassis. Remove and clean theses connection straps at both ends, and check their continuity with a meter, as sometimes they can break in the middle under the insulation from the vibration and movement of the components under braking and acceleration. Because the ECU depends on good electrical signals, and disturbance of the earth distorts the signal received.....

1996 Nissan Maxima no 2nd gear on auto transmission?


do not flush the trans, that will make it worse.
My friend you have no second gear, you need trans rebuilt.
If you flush it now you can cause more damage.
