Question about 1994 Nissan Pathfinder

Open Question

My 1994 Pathfinder won't shift when cold. Sometimes it takes up to 2 hours of idling before it will shift into first gear then runs perfect until you shut it off. If the outside temp. is below 75 degrees (F) its going to be a while before you get anywhere.

SOURCE: My 2003 Nissan Xterra is shifting hard from first

When was the last time the transmission was serviced? It should be serviced every 40,000 miles or so. I would think you should service it and make sure dirt & grime are not causing the shift solenoid or the valve in the valve body to stick

My 1994 5-speed manual Pathfinder sputters and jerks when it's cold


Here are the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle, it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and/or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving

Pathfinder "cuts out" at 2,300 rpm


Replace your MAF, its a little pricey around $280.00 or so but this will clear the code but make sure you have the ECM reprogrammed to perform a "learning" sequence since sometimes the code will not clear even though the vehicle will run like new. This reprogramming will most likely have to be a dealer performed procedure.

Car runs terrible at cold starts, once warm it runs perfect


engine coolant temp sensor is your most likely culprit, when engine is cold it uses the readings to set air fuel mixture, injector pulse

Well, I have a 1994 Toyota Camry XLE V6. I bought it from someone almost two years ago, knowing that it did not have reverse. When we bought it we noticed that the transmission fluid was very low to none...


if the gears were "melted together" then the trans wouldn't shift at all. since the car runs fine sometimes and sometimes it doesn't it sounds like an electronic problem. the trans uses shift solenoids to acheive gear changes. is the fluid dark brown in color or smell burnt? if so you may have some slipping of the clutch discs/ bands, but it doesn't sound severe if the car runs fine at times. i suggest you have a trans shop to drive the car and get a more accurate diagnosis.

Why won't a 1995 nissan pathfinder shift into third gear


Does it stay in second or does it make the shift and go to neutral or first?

2000 toyota echo, transmission won't shift to 4th


First thing to do is check the fluid level if that ok you may want to think about having the transmission filter and fluid changed, there are other possibilities but check these first
