Changed the dashboard switch for 4wd. That didn't work. Still cannot get into 4wd.


The NVG 263 transfer case features a three button shift control switch located on the instrument panel. When the ignition is in the RUN position, the transfer case shift control module (TCCM) starts monitoring the transfer case shift control switch to determine if the driver desires a new mode/gear position. At a single press of the transfer case shift control switch, the lamp of the new desired position begins flashing to inform the driver that the TCCM has received the request for a new mode/gear position. The lamp continues to flash until all shifting criteria has been met and the new mode/gear position has been engaged. Once the new mode/gear position is fully active, the switch indicator for the new position remains ON constantly. In the event that the TCCM can not or will not complete the shift, the indicator returns to the previously selected position; this is a Transfer Case Shift Control Switch Indicator Flashes, then Returns to Previous Mode condition.
The New Venture Gear model NVG 246 RPO NP8 transfer case is a two speed automatic, active, transfer case. The NVG 246 EAU provides 5 modes, Auto 4WD, 4HI, 4LO, 2HI and Neutral. The Auto 4WD position allows the capability of an active transfer case, which provides the benefits of on-demand torque biasing wet clutch and easy vehicle tuning through software calibrations. The software calibrations allow more features such as flexible adapt ready position and clutch preload torque levels. The technology allows for vehicle speed dependent clutch torque levels to enhance the performance of the system. For example, the system is calibrated to provide 0-5 ft lb of clutch torque during low speed, low engine torque operation, and predetermined higher torque for 40 km/h (25 mph) and greater. This prevents crow-hop and binding at low speeds and provides higher torque biases at higher vehicle speeds, in order to enhance stability.

Car sometimes wont start even if just turned off replaced starter motor and ignition barrel


Try starting it with the shift lever in neutral, if it starts, the transmission switch is bad (automatics), or with the key to start position move the shift lever thru the range of gears. If a stick shift and the clutch pedal must be pressed down, the clutch switch may be going out if intermittent starts

My 1989 nissan maxima wont shift into first or second gear. the clutch linkage needs adjusted. how do i repair it ?


The clutch n this make model and year is a hydraulic design, it is not adjustable as it is self adjusting. If you have a hard pedal and no free play the clutch disc is worn out and you need a new clutch,.

How do I fix my Nissan Maxima 1991's shift gear?


Do you hear a click near shifter when ignition is on and you step on brake? if not you have a Shifter Interlock problem. you ennd to check fuses for a possible blown fuse. If it is not a fuse it could be the Switch or solonoid. If you hear the click and can not shift, can you press on shifter lock button? if not Shifter Lock is malfunctioning. It must be taken apart to diagnose what it is exactly. If you CAN push Button then it could be the shift cable itself is frozen, and needs replaceing

Clutch not returning to start position, shifting


check cable tension the cable stretches over time cheap and not too hard to replace unless you drive very hard it is unlikely to be the clutch itself

My 2001 lincoln ls wont go into 4th or 5th gears. Took it to a trans shop and they recommended a rebuild for 3000+ dollars. But Ive been reading that alot of lincolns with the same problem getting err


call your dealer to get an estimate too.

Shift Patterns Upshifts
Transmission upshifting is controlled by the powertrain control module. The PCM receives inputs from various engine or vehicle sensors and driver demands to control shift scheduling, shift feel and torque converter clutch (TCC) operation.
The PCM has an adaptive learn strategy to electronically control the transmission which will automatically adjust the shift feel. When the battery has been disconnected, or a new battery installed certain transmission operating parameters may be lost. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) must re-learn these parameters. During this learning process you may experience slightly firm shifts, delayed, or early shifts. This operation is considered normal and will not affect the function of the transmission. Normal operation will return once these parameters are stored by the PCM.

Apply Components Band — Overdrive
For component location, refer to Disassembled Views in this section.
During 2nd and 5th gear operation, hydraulic pressure is applied to the overdrive servo.
  • This pressure causes the piston to move and apply force to the band.
  • This action causes the overdrive band to hold the overdrive drum.
  • This causes the overdrive sun gear to be held stationary through the adapter plate and the overdrive drum.
Band — Low/Reverse
For component location, refer to Disassembled Views in this section.
During 2nd gear operation, 1st gear operation and reverse, hydraulic pressure is applied to the low/reverse servo.
  • This pressure causes the servo to move and apply force to the low/reverse band.
  • This action causes the low/reverse brake drum to be held.
  • This action causes the low/reverse planetary assembly to be held stationary.
Band — Intermediate
For component location, refer to Disassembled Views in this section.
During 3rd gear operation, hydraulic pressure is applied to the intermediate servo.
  • This pressure causes the servo to move and apply force to the intermediate band.
  • This action causes the direct clutch drum to be held.
  • The intermediate band holds the intermediate brake and direct clutch drum to the case in 3rd gear.
  • This causes the input shell and forward sun gear to be held stationary.
Clutches — Direct
For component location, refer to Disassembled Views in this section.
The direct clutch is a multi-disc clutch made up of steel and friction plates.
  • The direct clutch is applied with hydraulic pressure and disengaged by return springs and the exhaust of the hydraulic pressure.
  • It is housed in the direct clutch drum.
  • During 4th, 5th, and reverse gear application, the direct clutch is applied transferring torque from the forward clutch cylinder to the direct clutch drum.
  • This action causes the forward sun gear to drive the pinions of the low/reverse planetary carrier.
Clutches — Forward
For component location, refer to Disassembled Views in this section.
The forward clutch is a multi-disc clutch made up of steel and friction plates.
  • The forward clutch is applied with hydraulic pressure and disengaged by return springs and the exhaust of the hydraulic pressure.
  • The forward clutch is applied in all forward gears.
  • When applied, the forward clutch provides a direct mechanical coupling between the center shaft and the forward ring gear and hub.
Clutches — Coast
For component location, refer to Disassembled Views in this section.
The coast clutch is a multi-disc clutch made up of steel and friction plates.
  • The coast clutch is applied with hydraulic pressure and disengaged by return springs and the exhaust of the hydraulic pressure.
  • The coast clutch is housed in the overdrive drum.
  • The coast clutch is applied when in 1st, 3rd, D4, and reverse positions.
  • When applied, the coast clutch locks the overdrive sun gear to the overdrive planetary carrier, thus preventing the one-way clutch from overrunning when the vehicle is coasting.
    • This allows the use of engine compression to help slow the vehicle and provide engine braking.
Clutches — Intermediate
For component location, refer to Disassembled Views in this section.
The intermediate clutch is a multi-disc stationary clutch made up of steel and friction plates which are in a module assembly that includes the cylinder and frictions.
  • Applied with hydraulic pressure.
  • Disengaged by a return spring and releasing of hydraulic pressure.
  • Hydraulic pressure is feed through a feed tube in the case worm trail.
  • Uses a bonded piston in an aluminum housing.
  • Applied in during a 2-3 shift event.
  • Transfers torque from the sun gear to the planetary carrier.
  • Torque transfer causes the one way clutch to engage and holds the sun gear from turning, delivering 3rd gear.
One-Way Clutch — Direct
For component location, refer to Disassembled Views in this section.
The direct one-way clutch is a sprag-type one-way clutch that is pressed into the center shaft.
  • The direct one-way clutch is driven by the ring gear of the overdrive planetary carrier.
  • The direct one-way clutch holds and drives the outer splines of the center shaft in 1st, 3rd, 4th and reverse gears.
  • The direct one-way clutch overruns during all coast operations and at all times in 2nd and 5th gear.
One-Way Clutch — Intermediate
For component location, refer to Disassembled Views in this section.
The Intermediate One-Way Clutch is a sprag type one-way clutch.
  • The Intermediate One-Way Clutch connects the intermediate assembly to the input shell and sun gear assembly in third gear.
One-Way Clutch — Low/Reverse

****! 1989 Ranger stuck shifter on new clutch!


Somehow you have it stuck in two gears. If I remember correctly your shift mechanism is inside the unit. If so, you will need to remove the trans and the cover, then re-position the shift forks. If you get lucky, you may be able to free it up by wiggling the shift lever but I doubt it.
Do not run it 'till you manage to free it up or you can break a gear. If you removed shifter when working on it, first check that you put it back in correctly before tearing everything apart!

No clutch resistance


You seem to have a damaged slave cylinder, just going off of previous experience. The master would normally leak . Good Luck
