Is the shift lever going threw all the gears? If not, it could be the shift linkage or the shift gate.

SOURCE: my 1994 truck shift fine

Could be as simple as a vacuum line leading to the transmission vacuum modulator is off or the modulator itself is bad, check to see if you have the hoses all connected first, because if there is no vacuum the transmission thinks you are under a heavy load and your foot is to the floor, this means the engine is creating little or no vacuum. So the tranny will stay in a low gear

Just read where this can happen due to a computer error. Unhook your battery and this will clear the error. Try driving it and see if that was it.

Have you checked the transmission fluid level in park when the engine and transmission are warmed up? Is it full?
Does the fluid look red like it should or look dark brown and smell burned? If it looks and smells obviously burned, that is an indication of internal damage and it will need to be rebuilt.

Otherwise, there may be another problem with this specific transmission that I am unaware of.

It's possible you may have a faulty air flow meter. Recommend a trip to the garage for an analysis. Motor will not achieve the speed it should have such a defect. OJS

Theres a smell of gear oil in the cab when driving.What could it be?


(1) motor oil only smells when its being burned.
(2) the output of the air ducts is in front of the gear shift area.
So, I'm thinking that you have an oil leak in the engine compartment (which may be dripping onto the exhaust system), and the oil has found a hot part of the engine/exhaust, and the smell of heated oil is wafting through the cabin air filter into the passenger compartment through the air ducts in the middle of the dash to just above the gear shift area.
If my theory is correct, you should be able to re-route the burned oil odor by changing the setting of your air ducts by changing the setting from its current setting to a "defrost-type" setting, wherein air entering the passenger compartment comes from the ducts below the windshield, rather then entering through the openings at the center of the console.
Ultimately, your fix will be to locate and resolve the oil leak.

Here's your list of possible culprits for the 1997 Nissan Pathfinder

Priority Action Part Type Cause
1 Inspect - Valve Cover Gasket -- Valve Cover Gasket Leaking Oil.
2 Inspect - Oil Filler Cap -- Oil Filler Cap Damaged or Missing.
3 Inspect - PCV Valve -- Plugged or Damaged PCV Valve.
4 Inspect - Oil Pan Gasket -- Leaking Oil Pan Gasket.
5 Inspect - Head Gasket -- Leaking Head Gasket.
6 Inspect - Oil Pump - divided O-ring or Oil Pump Gasket

If the odor really is gear oil (aka transmission fluid) and not motor oil, then there's a leak coming from the automatic transmission/manual transaxle.
Look under the transmission after the car has been parked awhile, and look for a reddish oil spot/blot/pool. transmission fluid is dyed red just for the purpose of differentiation from other automotive lubricants. You can assist the process of color differentiation by putting newspaper under the vehicle once it's been parked for the night.
Placing enough newspaper may also keep your Pathfinder from depositing a nearly-impossible-to-remove oil stain onto your garage floor overnight.
If you already have an oil stain on the floor, try a spray can of engine degreaser first. Citrus degreaser next.

My truck will not shift past 2nd gear. It shift 1st and 2nd and R. No matter what gear you manually shift into it will not go past 2nd gear.


Your transmission should have shift solenoids in it. You could have one that has failed or you could have other internal problems. To acess the shift solenoids you must remove the trans oil pan. If the oil is dark or smells kind of burnt I would suspect bigger problems than a shift soleniod. Also inspect the pan for chunks and a lot of debris. A little bit is normal but more than that is not good.

Transmission seems to shift into gear but will not go


You did more harm than good by changing the filter and fluid. Did you have the system flushed or just drained? If you drained it then you might have gotten some larger particles of dirt caught in a valve body component and thats probably why it wont shift...

1999 ford taurus automatic wont go into any gear -engine is fine


Just a couple of things to check if you haven't compare the smell and apearance of the tranmission oil to so new, if it looks dark and smell burned you probably have a bad transmision, clutches or burned up. Does it whine or make any noise? a stopped up filter will do this. also is it full when warm on the dip tick runniing in park?
