The shifter cable must be getting frayed internally. You'll have to get it replaced.

When I put my gear into Reverse, Netrual and Drive the gear is getting stiff to move. Why is this happening?


If you mean the shifter is getting hard to move, its probably the shift linkage sticking, try a couple squirts of pblaster or other penetrating oil. If the motion of the vehicle is getting hard to drive in reverse and drive the torque converter may be the issue.

I have to force the shifter into gear (all) or I can not get it to shift at all. the clutch level fluid is at max. the clutch does feel soft. Once in gear I can shift thru the gear, but hard. Some...


If you can put it into gear easily without the engine running but it grinds or is hard to put into gear when the engine is running then the clutch has not fully disengaged. If the clutch does not slip once you are moving then the clutch is not likely the problem. Instead you will have a faulty clutch slave cylinder and/or clutch master cylinder. The best thing to do is have both replaced and be sure that they are properly bled of all air. If the clutch does slip then it will of course need to be replaced, and be sure to have the pressure plate re-surfaced! Then there is the possibility, albeit rare, that all three need replacement.

The shift doesnt go into gear one and is very hard to put it in park. It feels as if it is getting stuck. How can I fix it that the shift will shift gears smoothly?


have your transmission oil replace, drain the old oil and put some gear cleanser about a liter or two then start the engine for about 5 sec., then drain again for the dirt to come out before putting your new oil...

2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec-V clutch sticking and hard shifting


I am dealing with a very similar issue on my 03 Spec V , So far i noticed the clevis pin was loose and the locking hitch pin that slips thru it had fallen out . this caused the gears to not wanna engage due to the bolt behind the clevis which runs to the master cylinder was not getting pressed in when i pushed the clutch pedal in because the clevis pin was slippin on n off giving me no pressure up top .. I had to remove my lower dash panel in order to get visual n hand access to this pin , it is a tight spot to work in as well . May be easist to remove the 4 14mm bolts that hold yur driver seat in to give ya more room to work n stretch out ur arms

Hard shifting, hard to get out gear and hard to put in gear


The mechanic should inspect then repair the shifting gears. And the gears on the transmission should be repaired or replace if worn out .the shift fork also have a problem it should be repaired or adjusted.

Can't shift


You probably burnt the clutch up.
A good indicator is hard to get into 1st with out grinding as well as reverse, and over all poor ability to shift in any gear.

air in the slave cylinder is more then likely not your problem.
Its pretty hard to do.

Grinding when in reverse and tries bogging down at lights


stop shifting so hard. your reverse gear is the same exact gear as your first, so if you shift hard and grind that gear a little then reverse will be harder to get into. you probably need your transmission rebuilt the harder your engine has to work the more its going to bogg down

Have a hard get the gear shift to go into reverse


if it will not shift out of park when the brake is pushed then in will be the shift interlock, but if it is still hard to move after out of park then it will be a shift cable
