Question about 1990 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

I have 1990 Nissan Maxima.The car will not move in any gear.Tranny fluid is full and not burnt.The linkage is fine.Checked the emergency brake sensor which only has one wire, when I disconnected wire the brake light on the instrument panel went out, so I know that is working fine.There are no engine lights on. Are there any other sensors that might be keeping the transmission from engaging?

SOURCE: 1990 nissan maxima trunk release switch

Actually, this car has security system that prevent the trunk opened without using the master key. I often use this to lock my trunk. Just slid up the tiny lever upward to allow the trunk open from inside. the lever is on the back trunk (in the center, behind the Tail light) where the trunk door hook up with the lock system.
Cheers..

The best way is to use a scan tool to clear the codes, that will turn off the light, also disconnecting the battery over night may work, but no completely sure about that, it varies from year to year.

SOURCE: 1990 nissan maxima automatic transmission

I suggest this is the Vechicle Revolution Sensor is causing the problem.

Run Diagnostic on the Transmission and review error codes.

An error (1) Code would confirm this.

If no error code exists then the problem is the band needs tightening. The gear to slip is always 2nd gear in this vechicle first then other latter as the problem becomes worse. There is only one band in the transmission and it is fairly simply procedure to complete but you need 1-10nm Torque wrench and to remove the valve body to get access. Don't attempt if you don't have good mechanical skill or have exp. on motorbike or other auto transmissions.

2000 Nissan Altima What would make it not move forward or reverse the car starts the gear Shift moves but the car doesnt move. When put in a gear the engine idle changes as if


Transmission is either low in fluid or has gone out. Crank it up and let it warm up to operating temp then pull emergency brake and put car in neutral. Check fluid to make sure it's full and not a dark color. If it's real dark then the trans is burnt up.

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.

1996 NISSAN MAXIMA, IT IS AN AUTOMATIC, WHEN I PUSH IN THE CLUTCH IT STILL CATCHS BUT THE GEAR SHIFT DOES NOT AT ALL. I DON'T EVEN NEED TO PUSH IN THE CLUTCH TO MOVE IT. WHAT COULD THE PROBLEM BE?


I believe you mean it is a manual tranny. I believe the shift fork in the tranny is messed up or the linkage from the shifter to tranny is diconnected. In order to check the linkage pull the car up on ramps and lock the rear brakes. Find the shifter under the car and follow the linkages to the tranny. The shift fork will have to be checked at the shop.

1990 maxima when I shift there is no sounds and nothing happens


If you press the accelerator, you hear the engine going up but it does not move then it is probably a trans problem.

There is a sensor on the hand brake wiring, that wont let the gear start, when no gear is engaging, that is usually cause for the problem.

Transmission Shift Problem...


That trans is either an RE4FO2A or V or RE4FO4A orV.Things to check when no 4th gear are:Inhibitor switch or control linkage misadjusted,no revolution sensor,speed sensor,or fluid temperature sensor signal,damaged overdrive switch,shift solenoid A,or brake band.
