The gear is cut to stay engaged when it wears and lose's its bevel it no longer holds. alot of these can be changed with trans removal thru cover on differantial end of trans axle

I have a 2008 nissan sentra and the gears are lagging when I accelerate the vehicle. I don't have an engine light on and the catalytic converter was replaced about 6 months ago. It sounds like it is trying...


To have to replace an Exhaust Converter in less than 10 to
14 years, tells me the vehicle has not run well most of the time
you have owned it

Cylinder misfires,vacuum leaks or rich fuel mixture, ruined it

The trans fluid HAS to be changed every 3 years or 30,000
miles or it WILL Fail, I guarantee you,having once owned a
trans shop

Check the fluid & if you don't have over 60,000 miles on it ,
change it
DO NOT HAVE IT FLUSHED ---just drop the pan---

Have to get the motor running correctly, before you have control
over the shift strategy, also.

The trans take special fluid-- so be careful

Read your Maintenance Manual about CVT Fluid

It should say 60,000 or 30,000 if you tow etc

I would do it every 30 to 40,000 max, on ALL Vehicles
regardless of trans model or fluid type

For now --ALL Nissan's HAVE to use the dealer fluid to be safe

In a couple years the aftermarket will have it & so will Wal.Mart

96 Nissan PU 2WD/5SPD, will not go in gear while running. Is it the clutch ot throw out bearing?


Your labor would be the same on replacing either one, You should replace the bearing and clutch at the same time.If a shop is doing it you should be looking at 4-5 hours of labor as trans has to be dropped. expect to pay 600-700 for repair if thats all it needs.

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

Change shift linkage on 93 sentra


More than likely it's not the linkage. Sounds like the fourth to fifth synchronizer is very badly worn, which will cause the shifter to "pop out" of fifth gear.

Transmission stuck in 5th gear???


This is most likely one of your cam shaft sensors. The reason your transmission goes to 5th gear and stays there is because the car automatically goes into "safe mode". This prevents you from running the car on high RPM's which decreases the chance of causing more damage to the engine.
Depending on the code you get from the check engine light, it will be one of the cam-shaft sensors or the crank shaft sensor. A code reader will answer that question.
Often the sensor just fails or oil gets into the connectors which prevents proper reading. This sometimes goes away temporarily when engine is hot but problem will return.
To replace the cam shaft sensors you are looking at approximately 30 min of work. Its a tight fit but not a difficult job.
Cam shaft sensors are about $80. Not sure how much crank haft sensor is.
Hope this helps, and good luck.
