You either have a bad solenoid or the computer needs to be replaced.

My 2000 honda odyssey has no reverse and shifting from high to low the car shudders. Do I need to rebuild the tranny?


yes. I reccomend that you do a rebuild or buy a new one, buying one from a junk yard is not reccomended because you never know if your getting a good one or not, unless you can find one with low miles ( 30,000 or less) I would not recommend a used one. Honda always had issues with all their V6 transmissions. They use weak gears, and the internal tranny filter that you cant change unless you take apart the tranny is totally a bad idea. They have since upgraded the gears from 2004 0n and have put an external tranny filter on most odyssey models.

Try going to your local parts store (such as AutoZone) and ask about the transmission control solenoid. Go here for the direct link to their website with that specific part for your 91 maxima.

This is the 3rd tranny - Exact same thing is happening.


You might try to add a transmission cooler. If its getting hot it will eat the transmission easily. time to swap it out and sell the problem to someone else.

Shop one of your pick and pull yards for a tranny. You will diffenatly have to pull it out to fix the gear,unless it is just in the shifter which won't press the shifter fork in the transmission far enough press the 5th gear into mesh(or into gear).
Sounds more like it might be in the gear shifter. Linkage worn or stretched, or a bushing out of the linkage. Take the plastic console off and look at the action of the shifter if it has alot of freeplay when trying to put it into 5th gear I would say, Get a junk yard shifter.
If you go into transmission It has to be pulled out of car to dissassemble it and it really is a job for a transmission specialist. Get a Junk yard tranny and just replace it. They usually give a gaurantee of some sort with the tranny.

Can't transfer to 4L or neutral mode


Transfer cases can be quirky. I've got a 91 Wrangler, an 86 Cherokee and a 75 Blazer. When I go from 2WD to 4WD, they each have their own personality.

There are a number of things I've learned to persuade a stubborn xfer case to shift.

Try mixing these :
  • Engine running, vehicle not moving
  • Engine off, Shift Xfer case, Restart
  • Tranny in neutral
  • Shift Xfer case 'N', Tranny in gear, Tranny in neutral, Xfer case to 4HI or 4LOW (as long as you feel it register), Tranny in gear, try to move
  • Shift Tranny to Reverse, roll a few yards
  • Lock/Unlock the Hubs
To get back to 2WD:
  • Drive for a few feet in a straight line
  • Unlock the hubs
  • Tranny Neutral
  • Shift xfer case
Let me know how it turns out.
