Question about 1997 Nissan Pickup

Open Question

The automatic transmission on my tx1 London taxi does not appear to change gear when I start moving. The engine revs and feels like a clutch slipping. When I shift it into 'low' and then into 'drive' it gets better and is ok when the engine has warmed up. I was having trouble starting but this has been rectified after I replaced two glow-plugs.

SOURCE: Transmission won't shift to second when cold

I had a similar problem, my transmission worked great in the hot weather and terrible in cold. Although for me it turned out I was running the car in "POWER", instead of "AUTO" on that switch just to the right of cruise control. Power is a lower gear meant for towing, steep hills, etc. Switched back up to auto, and my transmission hasn't slipped since. I don't know if your problem is the same.

If not, change the transmission fluid, and if that does nothing, take it to a mechanic and have him take a look at it.

i hate to be the bearer of bad news but you need a transmission, as the transmission heats up you are loosing pump pressure this is caused by to much wear in the transmission. it usely starts with delayed or erratic shifting that keeps getting a little worse over time then one day the wear goes past the maximum limit and the transmission fails......SORRY

What you need is a "revolution sensor" I had the same exact problem. Replaced the sensor and everything is fine

From what you have described it sounds like the transmission control solenoid pack is hanging up and needs to be replaced.

When you shut the car off it resets the position of the soleniod allowing it to work for a while before it gets hung up again.

Overtime turning it off and back on again won't anymore.

Are you sure the solenoids were new and installed correctly?
Sometimes the replacments you buy are of a worse quality. Their probably is another issue causing your soleniods to wear faster than they are supposed to and when you install inferior quality replacments they may just wear out quicker. I'm not saying this your problem just an idea.

If you haven't changed the fluid and filter in a while then that definetly would be the next thing I would do before anything else.

You can check your fluid to see if its dark and smells burned or if its clean and lighter colored.

I really hope this gets you headed in the right direction and good luck.
If you feel I've helped in any way please give me a fixya rating,
