Question about 1991 Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

When I shift my 91 Pathfinder into reverse it doesn't want to move, but if I go forward a little bit then shift into reverse and rev the engine it will slam into reverse and squawk the tires, but then it backs up fine. Have to do this every time I want to back up.

What your doing is called abuse.
I realize your just diagnosing things

Having owned a trans shop,and without knowing the mileage on your trans,it sounds as though a rebuild is in your future.

No external fix,when they don't engage

If your mechanically inclined,you could pull the valve body and clean.
If the fluid is anything other than pink and smelling like new,your done.

Have a 94 pathfinder with all forward gears but no revers gears is it the rev swith or m0re


If transmission is full of fluid, check that shift linkage is putting trans into reverse. If that's all good, you need to have a trans pro check things out.

My 2001 Pathfinder intermittently won't crank (turn key, radio and AC come on but no engine crank). If I push/pull gear shift, it starts - is there a sensor to make sure its in Park to start that may


Many cars do have a switch on the gear shift to ensure it will not start if not in park, turn on the reverse lights when in reverse, turn on the camera when in reverse, park lights, etc. Here is an article that mentions it a little bit, http://www.fourwheeler.com/how-to/transmission-drivetrain/154-0805-1987-2001-jeep-cherokee-neutral-safety-switch/.

Transmission will not go into reverse. Sometimes it will and sometimes it will not. Drives well drive and reverse once in gear.


It sounds like the shift lever is out of adjustment by a small amount. Try moving the shift lever a little bit forward & backward from it's normal position to see if this is the case.

Won't back up!


well slipping in reverse would be tranny...;but by saying the engine spits,,,sputters ,,,stalls,,,,sounds like engine not enough power to drive it in reverse...i'm guessing forward no problems...first thing comes to mind is in reverse engine moves on motor mounts as you give it gas..could be wiring harness rubbing on block causing short condition..when in forward engine moves opisite direction...while idling in park, shake wiring harness all over different spots see if you can simulate the condition.....are there any engine codes....also does it have a problem in reverse on a flat surface... or only on a incline....if only on an incline check fuel pressure while in reverse on incline.. see if loosing pressure for some reason..on incline fuel goes to lowest part of tank...

Car does not drive forward but works in reverse


Sad to say but your automatic transmission has bit the dust.

1988 Jaguar xj6 No forward in the automatic trans rev works fine


the linkage is just a slight bit off, it parks between gears when you shift into the slots. Disassemble the shifter from the center console, and slowly move just the cable its self between the positions and see if you have forword gears. When you find and sync the gears, then tighten the cable to the shifter so the positions match the notches in the shifter.

Shifting from reverse to Drive


If your van has alot of miles, then just ignore it. Get a sevice done on it and let it warm up a bit and see if that helps the problem. When the miles get put on, especially with little maintaince, they have a hard time engaging "cold turkey". Another factor is that going from Rev to Drive(1st) you are going from energizing one accumulator to energizing two, and you're switching from the Rev clutch to the Underdrive clutch which tends to bleed off pressure the most.
