1987 nissan d21 5 speed trans specs

I have an 1987 nissan d21 with the naps-z 2.4l engine and 5 speed standard transmission. i had to replace the transmission and i got one from a 1997 pickup with the ka24e. i'm trying to find the gear ratios of the 1987 transmission to compare with the new one to know about how much tweaking i need to do to my engine to work right with the newer gearing. can't find any info on the 87 transmission online. any help would be appreciated thank you =]

the pcv valve is behind the alternator between the alternator and oil filter. when you remove the oil filter you can see the pcv in the intake manifold. best way to get to it is through the pass side fender under the rubber mud flap thats between the wheel and engine.

SOURCE: 300Zx will not shift out of 5th gear

Dear javatrader: There are very few solutions to this problem. The fact that you had mentioned 5th & Reverse, tells me that you problem is has two possibilities. Both relate to the same component.
The shift fork for Fifth gear and reverse are the same as well as the hub which the fork fits over.
When you Move the stick shift, it moves one of 3 rails in the transmission of which one is 5th and reverse. The hub is what locks the transmission in gear. The gears are what are referred to as synchromesh. This means that when you shift from gear to gear, it makes it possible to easily make the transition without the gears grinding while the car is in motion. The synchros are in fact, kind of a "BRAKE" for the gears so that when you go to shift into that gear, the synchronizing ring, slows the gear down enough to match the speed of the counter gear allowing it to engage with it, without grinding. As the hub slides into gear, there are spring loaded "KEYS" which are small pieces of steel about 1/2 inch long, 1/4 inch thick and 1/4 inch wide with a little hump in them to push up into a small cavity machined into the hub when it slides over it, thus locking the gear into place until you pull the stick to move it out of place. If a key pops out, it could cause the gear to stick, not allowing you to pull the hub back because the key has popped out at an angle which prohibits the hub from sliding over it.
Another possible senario: The fork is secured to the shift rail with a part called a "Roll pin". If this part shears, the car will be stick in what ever gear it was in at the time the pin sheared. If the pin shears, the stick will still move out of 5th gear position but the transmission won't.
This problem, unfortunately is not one a layman can fix. This is best left to a professional.
Good luck......If you are pleased with my answer, please write in, that you are satisfied with my answer. I am new in this "FIXYA" group and need more people responding to work my way up the ranks.

SOURCE: Transmission pops out of 5th gear

The synchro's in your transmission are shot. Time to replace them or the transmission fully.

SOURCE: 1995 Nissan XE Pickup Transmission Problems-PLEASE HELP

your luck as with mine is not good. thought I had a bad bearing, after droping the tranny and seperating the housing, I have a broken counter shaft. after looking for another with no luck, the tranny shop informed me that was common for these transmissions. parts are expensive, to rebuild would cost aprox.$800.00 or more. the main cause is the front bearing is supported in alum. causing shaft to move which first takes out the bearing, then the strain snaps the shaft. taking out all gears except 4th and only moves while in 4 wheel drive.

I have a 1987 nissan pick up d-21 with the 3.5 DOHC engine and a 5 speed manual trans in this 4X4 I am pulling the engine out, do i have to pull the trans ? or can i oull just the engine? The oil pan seems...


I don't recall what those are like under there but things I have done to leave the transmission in are,
Pull the drive shafts and unbolt the transmission mount so it can be slid back but left in the truck.
Unbolt the mount (or leave it bolted if it will move enough) so the transmission still sits on it but jack the front of it up while lifting the motor so it can be pulled out of the trans enough to clear the input shaft.
Sometimes they take a little pull the motor forward and inch and then lift and inch then pull forward another inch and then lift another inch.....

Good luck on your swap. I was just doing the head on a 87 Nissan D21 with the Z24i and was looking for a later donar with ported injection for it instead of that TB injection also.

call a junkyard or look one up on the net. you are going to spend a thousand dollars doing this and end up with a 400 dollar car. for a grand you can buy a working car 13 years newer. sell that one off piece by piece on eBay or craigslist.

The short answer is no

the list of replacement parts would most likely exceed $8000, trans, trans control module, engine control modules, complete engine & trans wiring harness, trans, modifacation to the firewall, complete pedal assemblies, and the complete engines were different if look at the specs at dodge.com

Dodge ram50 1992 swap 2,4L to 2,6L


Greetings!

Yes, the engine mounts and bell housings are the same.
The swap should be straight forward, however be sure to swap all the vaccum controls and emission system from the 2.6L.

Have fun!
