You may want to check the linkage for adjustment or the shift cable for excessive wear.

Have a 91 Nissan truck just purchased, it's stuck in reverse and 5th gear, how do I fix

If the problem is in the shifter lever assembly, you can remove that from the top of the transmission after you remove the floor mat/carpeting, slide up the boot, and remove the six bolts holding it to the transmission. But, if everything seems to be free and moving smoothly in that assembly, the transmission will have to be disassembled to find which shift forks or associated rods are bound up or broken.

Transmission fluid is pour out near the back of the transmission on my automatic 2.4 liter 1990 nissan stanza. what possible problems does that tell me about?

One of your axle shaft seals or the speed sensor o-ring is leaking. Those are the only three things back there that can be leaking. Have them all checked out and replaced as needed.

93 nissan d21 4 cyl automatic trans wont shift into OD. rpms reach 4000 at 65 mph.. what is the problem?

well there are a few reasons that could cause this problem some of which are easy fix others are a major fix.
1)The throtle valve cable could be out of adjustment, for this to be corrected it is best to be taken to a transmission shop, or you could buy a Chilton or Haynes repair manual to see how to adjust it yourself.

2)The O.D. solenoid (which depending on the transmission in the truck) is either inside or on the outside of transmission, could have a bad wire going down to it, or have a bad connection to it, or it may not any power getting to it /// First Check All Fueses on vehicle then locate where solenoid is the check wires for power. The solenoid could also be plugged or bad depending on condition of trans and the ATF.

3)In side the transmission the is whats called a Over Drive Clutch Pack and the cluthes could be worn out or completely gone this happens quite often with older vehicles. If this happens to be the problem then the only possible fix would be what is called a OVER HAUL in which the transmission is removed from the vehicle, disassembled, all clutches and damaged parts in side are replaced, then transmission is or should be cleaned and then reassembled and then the transmission is reinstalled back into the vehicle.

So depending on where you live there might be a transmission shop that might diagnose the exact problem of your 93 nissan and give you a quote on fixing it. Some shops do this for free other do not. My shop does this for free. So I hope this helps you with your truck.

Transmission , trans is slipping after it warms up, or after few miles, can it be my filter dirty? or do you think it needs to be replaced or rebuilt? rb

For any auto transmission always think basic solution, in this case change the filter, replace with new fluid, Sure repair shops want to replace the entire unit,why more money. a new trans will fix the problem. but so might a filter and fluid change do the trick for alot less money. New trans costs 2500.00 filter and fluid 50.00. you do the math

!992 nissan stanza standard trans fluid

If your referring to the manual transmission where you do the shifting. Your going to be using gear lube, not to be confused with transmission fluid. Which is red in color, they are not interchangeable transmission fluid is only for automatic transmissions. Gear lube is much heavier in weight, you want to get a gear lube 80-90 weight this lube is perferred for your vehicle

That trans is an RE4FO2A or V and check the fluid level,if the fluid level is good,check the axles to make sure they are seated all the way in the trans,and that the axle's CV joints aren't broken.Other than that,likely an internal problem with the forward clutches,torque convertor,or pump assembly.
