1.Could be a torq converter or a vacuum leak.2Also could be the converter or a tune up or both.3Sounds like a wire shorted behind the stereo.4It could be the power steering pump going out.

you might want to take the car in to the dealer there was a lot of recalls on that car i know i have one and i just took it in they did a recall on the computer and the catyltic converter the cat shoots pieces of the cat called catalyss into the pistons and blows the motor it only cost a 125 dollars for the dealer to check it and if it is a recall you get that money back!!!

not necessarily, i have saw cadalatic converters on vehicles with 30k on them be pluged up so tight the vehicle would barely idle... i was going to guess that was your problem before i read what the computer said..

jason, im gonna bet the farm that you have a clogged catalytic converter, if you can get the vehicle to your nearest muffler shop most of them will test the converter for free. they simply drill a small hole in the exhaust pipe in front of and behind the converter and compare the pressure to see if its clogged, call ahead to see if they will test it for free, most will, hope this helps

Testimonial: "thanks im gonna give it a shot "
SOURCE: 96 nissan sentra 5th gear grind
Mor than likely damaged one of the planetary gear sets. Grinding in a trnasmission or rear end is a sign of loss of contact between meshing gears. Automatic transmissions engage two sets of gears internal to the trans to create a forward drive gear, changing between the gear sets creates different ratios anwhich in turn aloows for higher speeds. If the trans only grinds when in fifth range there is mopre than likely internal damage to the gears which 5th needs to operate. I would start by pulling the dip stick for the ****** and check for black or shiney material on the stick. I would then take a sample of oil from the trans by draining some from the drain plug if it has one, or possible drop the pan and check for foriegn matter in the fluid. Peices of metal shaving point to gear damage, and black material pont towards clutch wear/ damage. A worn or damaged clutch will cuase that specific gear not to engage and cause a grinding noise. Either way the concern is internal
