Question about 2005 Nissan Frontier

1 Answer

3 second delay (when warmed up trans engaging from park to drive

I have an 2008 nissan frontier, & noticed (since purchased new, at 50 miles on odometer) that once warmed up, there's about a 3 second delay when i shift from neutral or park into drive (or reverse).

It's also a 'gentle' engagement.

When at fast idle , eg, when it's cold) there is no such delay.

Seems to otherwise shift ok when on the road.

Acceleration a bit low.

It now has 900 mles on it (most short trips). have i damaged it, or are short trips my salvation (assuming trans fluid is low)?

Other identical models don't have this delay. (i drove 2)

    Just took it into a dealer.



    They said "Nissan says anywhere from 1-6 seconds is 'normal' for their brand", and "no trouble codes from the trans or engine computers, so there's nothing wrong".



    Trans fluid is normal level.

2007 frontier, won't start following transmission failure


run fault codes and look for a TCM failure. Most vehicles have an oil cooler for the transmission in the radiator and it is known that the cooler develops leaks and the coolant gets into the transmission oil or the oil gets into the coolant. This problem is for all makes and is not ford only. The solution is to fit air to air aftermarket oil coolers

Remove the transmission pan, change the tranny oil filter & adjust the low-reverse band. Any chilton or haynes manual gives the tolerances & step by step procedure to effect repairs. You will need approx. 7 qts. of tranny fluid. Hope this helps. Good luck!

94' jeep grand cherokee trans. delays in reverse


Hi ray_c_brown, This pause is determined by a time lag test, and you can check this yourself with a stop watch.Engagement time in "D" range should be a maximum of 1.2 seconds and the engagement time for reverse should be a maximum of 1.5 seconds. So with your vehicle warmed up and assuming curb idle speed is correct set the park brake,make sure ac is off (air cond) shift transfer case to 2H or if it is a NP249 transfer case leave in 4H,put your vehicle into neutral and set your stop watch shift to Drive and record time repeat this a couple of times and do the same with reverse,as you said the delay is with reverse so if it takes longer than 1.5 seconds here are a few things it could be:shift cable adjustment,low line pressure,worn direct clutch, first/reverse brake worn or a worn or damaged overdrive clutch.Hope this helps you good luck :)
