If 4th gear is the only gear not grinding then there is a problem in the counter shaft bearings in the box
in reality there is no 4th "gear" as it is a straight through connection of the input and out put shafts and there is no load placed on the counter shaft set bearings

SOURCE: 1995 Nissan XE Pickup Transmission Problems-PLEASE HELP

your luck as with mine is not good. thought I had a bad bearing, after droping the tranny and seperating the housing, I have a broken counter shaft. after looking for another with no luck, the tranny shop informed me that was common for these transmissions. parts are expensive, to rebuild would cost aprox.$800.00 or more. the main cause is the front bearing is supported in alum. causing shaft to move which first takes out the bearing, then the strain snaps the shaft. taking out all gears except 4th and only moves while in 4 wheel drive.

With the vehicle sitting still, ease the clutch out just a little bit while trying to engage reverse. If it pops in, even with a little grinding, it seems the bearings on the counter shaft may be a little stiff. Have you checked the level of the gear lube in the transmission?

SOURCE: Nissan 300zx no reverse or 4th gear.

Hi,
The first place I would look is the shift linkage for wear and a sloppy connection from wear.
adjustments may be made as a possible fix on the linkage rod.
Glad to be of assistance - Please rate the response - I can learn from your rating. Thank you

Hi.

The switch solenoid for the first gear is probably gone. The transmission gears are operated using an array of solenoids called solenoid pack. The solenoids are located inside transmission, in the valve body. The solenoids are tested using an Ohm meter. If a solenoid is open then it must be replaced.
Wiring to solenoid pack must also be checked to be sure that the problem is not the wiring harness.

Before testing the solenoid, that is difficult to access you can also check the TPS (throttle position sensor). The TPS is located on the throttle body. Its signal is used by the transmission control module to decide when to activate the solenoids and switch gears.
The TPS can be tested by reading volts at its terminals while someone else is pushing down the accelerator pedal. If voltage has gaps (in your case this is likely the result), or if voltage does not change smoothly, then the TPS must be replaced.

Other part that can be responsible is the speed sensor, mounted on the transmission. This part is more difficult to test, and gets usually replaced if TPS and solenoids are OK.

If all the rest is OK, then the TCM (transmission control module) or a defective transmission box can be responsible for the problem.

Transmission problems may store DTC (fault codes) in the ECU (Car main computer). If an obdII reading done on the ECU returns DTC P0700, that means that there are more codes addressing specific transmission codes stored in the TCM. A scan to retrieve TCM codes can be done at the dealer.

If first gear does never kick in, then I think the problem is likely a blown solenoid. The TPS can be tested first as it is an easy job.

Regards.

Sounds like you have a defectine cluthch componant. Best way to verify is get the rear axle off the ground . So as not to let the rear drive wheels make contact with the ground. Have an assistant start the truck and put it in gear. After making sure the vehicle is secure crawl under the vehicle and listen to comfirm that the noise is coming from the clutch area.
