Question about 1997 Infiniti.5 J30

1 Answer

Infiniti QX4 possible transmission replacement. My car ended up in a 2 foot puddle yesterday. The person towing it didn't wait for me to put it neutral. The infiniti starts fine and runs but it will only drive in reverse. Do you have any idea what could be some possible reasons for this? I don't want to go th the mechanic without some information. Thank you

Hi,

Do you see any Check Engine Light Being ON?

Read :-

http://www.fixya.com/cars/r4008552-check_engine_light_being

Get the Car Scanned and tell me the Codes so that we could proceed.

If the Check Engine Light is Not ON, then I suspect this may be a problem with the torque converter in the transmission. For some reason it may be locking and stalling you out. I can'[t think of anything else that would allow you to drive it fine in reverse but not drive. I would first and foremost check the transmission fluid and make sure it is full. If it is, there really isn't much else you can do from home.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Where is the torque converter clutch solenoid?


The torque converter is inside the transmission. The (electric) clutch solenoid - usually - is on the outside of the transmission case.

Get a flashlight, get under the vehicle and look on the transmission case for electrical wires..

The link below will give you a general idea of what it may look like:

Urgent - Stuck at a Campsite and Won't Hold Transmission Fluid???


Smoke may indicate a transmission leak, with fluid getting on the exhaust system. Puddling underneath when adding fluid seems to confirm that.
We can only hope that it didn't burn up any internal parts.

A few questions that might help you to get an answer:
1) Does the dipstick indicate full, or close to it?
2) Can your son be more specific as to where the fluid is leaking, and how much? Whether it is from the front or back part of the transmission, or elsewhere. Also, is it leaking out a LOT of fluid when he adds some?
3) Is the pickup parked on level ground? If not, which end is pointed up?
4) We are talking about a rear wheel drive P/U, not a 4x4, right?
5) Has he tried to put it in L1 if the pickup has it?
6) He knows to add the fluid while the pickup is running, right? Just making sure.

Sorry for all of the questions. Hopefully it will narrow down the possibilities.

About how much do you think it will run me to fix my torque converter clutch on a 1998 infiniti QX4.


If the clutch is bad the transmission will have to be removed and the entire torque converter will have to be rebuilt or replaced so I believe you're looking at $1000 minimum.

Moisture in distributor cap of infiniti qx4


dry out the moisture and possibly spray the closed distributor cap and wires with silicon to protect from moisture. Do this only if the cap is not cracked and is properly mounted on to the distributor.
