I think my clutch went out in my 96 nissan pickup it will change gear aft it runs a while. If stop u have to turn the trk off to get it bcl in 1st or anygear

I suspect an air in the hydraulic system or problem clutch slave or master cylinder
the having to stop to select a gear indicates that the pressure plate is not being properly moved as a result of not enough movement in the slave cylinder
that can be air ( bleed the system-check fluid level) or problem master cylinder --- replace
clutches either work or they don't so leave the clutch idea as a very last resort

Slave cylinder 2001 nissan altima

Check the linkage under the dashboard. Many companies use cheap plastic clips that get very brittle over time.

Hydraulic clutch in a 2001 nissan altima gxe 5 speed manual

Open the hood and look for the clutch master cylinder.
It is smaller than the brake master cylinder, but should be very near it.
The clutch master cylinder is about half the size of the brake master cylinder.
Take the lid off and see if it is full.
If it is empty, the likely problem is the slave cylinder (which is mounted on the transmission at the other end of the brake fluid line), has failed and needs to be replaced.
It will likely not do any good to fill the clutch master cylinder, as you will trap air in the line.
The slave cylinder will need to be replaced, and the line bled to get the air out.
Be blessed.

1997 nissan altima 5 speed manual transmission will not shift, is it the clutch, master cylinder or slave cylinder?

first check to see if you have any fluid in the clutch master cylinder which is mounted by the firewall on l/h side of car. if fluid is inthere, follow the line/hose to the transmission. this line/hose goes to slave cylinder mounted somewhat on the front/top of trans with 2 bolts. that is the slave. have someone push the clutch as you are watching the slave cylinder for operation. it should move with clutch beeing pressed. if it doesnt move than you have a hydraulic issue/leaking master cylinder. if it moved nicely, tha i would be looking at the clutch.

Hi. I have nissan almera 1996, 1.4 manual. I am getting some grinding sound when I move in 1st and 2nd gear, and a little bit when the car is stationary but switch on. The sound disappears when I press...

sounds like your thought out bearing is making noise which is not that big a deal right now and the second thing is that it sounds like you aalso have a synquinizer that is going bad. In this case you would need to have the trans rebuilt to fix problem or chance a used one.

My 1994 Nissan Altima's clutch is leaking fluid and the clutch goes all the way down to the floor, it will not go into gear

The solution is pretty cut-and-dry. Fix the fluid leak and your transmission will go into gear. I don't know what to tell you to fix exactly because I do not know where it is leaking from. If it is leaking from the slave cylinder, replace the slave cylinder; If it is leaking from the master cylinder, replace the master cylinder, etc.

Fixing just one part of the clutch may not be the best option for you however. Clutch parts seem to wear out all within a few thousand miles of one-another. Depending on how many miles are on your vehicle you may want to do a complete clutch replacement so you won't have any further clutch problems for several years.

Problem with 1993 nissan altima PLEASE HELP

It is a clutch problem. Do you know if you have a hydraulic clutch or a clutch cable? If you have a cable, it might need adjusted. If you have hydraulic you might have a bad slave cylinder or clutch master cylinder.
