Question about 1990 Nissan Pathfinder

Open Question

Nissan Terrano 1. (Same clutch & Engine as 2) My last gear box was worn out. I have fitted a MK2 gearbox & new Clutch 3 part. The car drives fine, Gear change is fine & no slip or noise. PROBLEM! In tick over & not pressing the clutch there is a desturbing knocking noise. Press the clutch 50% to complete & no noise at all. Foot of clutch & the noise returns. Any ideas? I have been told there is a bearing center of the flywheel & this coul be broken. I have checked the Nissan PDF files & cannot see anything like this.

SOURCE: terrano gearbox keeps jumping out of overdrive and

Nissan Terrano's have an Electronic Computer that controls the gearbox. It is hidden behind the left hand rear Speaker box, right hard up against the rear seat back rest. This system controls all functions regarding the gearbox and it's rev rates. If your vehicle is shifting back on long drives then it is possible that the computer sees any slight increase in revs as a desire to "Kickback" the gearbox to a lower gearing, hence it dropping out of overdrive. Unfortunately a gearbox specialist with a computer "Plug-in" is needed to fix this, but it is fixable. This problem should not be too expensive in comparison with a new gearbox.

SOURCE: clutch grinding sound when engaged

it is the throw out bearing and if you go through that,you may as well replace the clutch,which must be removed to replace the bearing anyway.the clutch comes with a new bearing.

SOURCE: I have fitted new clutch

Hi

It sounds like during installation one of 3 things could have happened.
1) The splines got messed up stabbing the transmission, or
2) the plate got bent itself or
3) the plate is in backwards
Also If you do have leaking on your master cylinder then that will be your problem obviously.
Your master cylinder is designed to compress DOT3 Fluid with one cylinder piston, against another cylinder piston which creates force against a clutch fork that presses your throw out bearing. Your TOB then presses against your clutches pressure plate, the pressure plate releases from the clutch disk which is transferring torque into transmission from your engine. Now you have gears within your transmission that are moving at two different speeds, and a synchronizer within your transmission slips onto teeth to match those two speeds and to lock the gears to a shaft and transfer your torque to an output shaft and then on wards towards your differential gear and thus to your wheels etc.

SO, if your clutch isnt being released enough to allow your synchronizers to lock onto the wanted gear, then its obviously not going to go into gear.
You could try and bleed it one more time but it sounds like the disc is hanging up and not allowing the transmission to spin freely. Either the clutch free play needs adjusting (non-hydraulic clutch) or the pressure plate is not stopping the flywheel and will need replaced. Try adjusting the pushrod between the pedal & master to give you more clutch travel.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

I have problem with my Nissan terrano 2 mechanical gearbox. It's hard to put to 1st gear. From 1'st to 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, are also hard. Is it necessary to change clutch?


not a clutch problem unless you have just done a clutch kit change
more likely a hydraulic clutch problem ( air in the system) or master cylinder needing replacement .
if it is a cable operated clutch , replace the clutch

Replace clutch


this is easily done on this engine. just need a jack and some wheel ramps. take the battery off undo the starter motor, undo the box bolts to the engine and take the plate out. jack up remove the engine mount on gearbox side. ,then jack up after so engine is at an angle and pull off the gearbox and clutch housing oh forgot to say remove the gear link pin and clutch cable. now you can see the clutch and remove it. when putting the clutch back in locate the new clutch with a socket one of the long types think it was an 18mm just fits in right for the locator. then bolt down the new clutch take out the socket. and put back the engine in reverse. wiggle the gear box and casing to locate back onto the new clutch if dont fit in first time.

Where is the torque converter and drive plate on 97 eclipse gst manual transmission.. so i may markmatch it before removing the tranny


hi, if you have a manual gearbox then you dont have a torque converter a torque converter is what changes the gears in an automatic gearbox as your is manual all you will have inside your gearbox is a pressure plate a clutch plate and a thrust bearing witch operates the clutch when you press the pedal down.
The only thing you need to line up on a manual box is when you have fitted the new clutch you need to have a tool that holds the clutch plate central so that when you tighten the bolts up on the pressure plate the clutch stays central if you dont do this you wont be able to get the gearbox back onto the engine as the spline from the gearbox wont be able to go through the center of the clutch into the engine.

You can make or use you own tool to hold the clitch dead center as long as its a good fit and about the same size as the spline, so once you have the new clutch in and the pressure plate loosely bolted on you can still move the clutch around behind the pressure plate now right in the center their is a hole in the pressure plate and the clutch plate this is where the tool needs to be put so that the clutch plate remains dead center whilst you tighten the pressure plate up this will then make sure that the spline on the gearbox lines up properly not doing this will make it impossible to get the gearbox on properly.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Just bought a passat estate . when i first start off when the engine and box is cold know problems .but when the engine and gearbox are hot i find it hard to find reverse gear and a bit tight going thought...


Dose the clutch pedal drive in gear 1" from the floor OR 1"" from the top when you let it out. if its drives when almost out and there is a vibration on the pedal then the clutch needs replacing and it has nothing to do with the gear box or oil
But the gearbox has to come out before you put a new complete clutch in

Peugeot ae ****


1) CHECK THE ADJUSTMENT OF THE CLUTCH PEDAL, CHECK ITS FREE PLY.


2)ALSO THIS CAN HAPPEN IF ENGINE, GEAR BOX OR SELECTOR SHAFT SEAL IS LEAKING

3)PEUGEOT OFFERS A WARRANTY OF 1 YEAR FOR THE PARTS FITTED. EVENTHOUGH THE WEAR & TEAR PARTS ARE EXCLUDED, IF YOU HAVE FIXED GOT IT FIXED EARLIER WITH IN THE PEUGEOT NETWORK & IT REALLY IS THE DEFECT OF THE PART, YOU STILL HAVE A CHANCE.

Gearbox


It sounds to me like the clutch is not working properly.
This may be an adjustment problem or signs of a worn clutch.
Try selecting 5th gear and with the handbrake on let out the clutch, if the engine stalls then the clutch is probably ok and may just need adjusted. If the engine doesn't stall then your clutch is shot and unfortunately its gearbox back out to fit a new clutch.

the front drive axle on one side may have not been installed all the way in to the transmission, check to see if it is loose and have some one look under front end with engine on, front end jacked up, emergency brake on and in gear to see if a axle is turning. if one is and yhe other is not put the car in park and turn\ roll the wheel that was not turning by hand if it rolls your problem is most likley to be the axle has come loose from the transmission

Selespeed gearbox


Check that you have oil in the gearbox and that the drive shfts are securely fitted in the box. If all this is ok, then a reconditiond, second hand or new replacement box is the order of the day. Before you buy another box, when the box is off the engine, dismantle the clutch and inspect it. It may be the preasure plate is breaking up. Anyway it is only another ten minutes on the job. If you find wear in the clutch, repace it at the same time as you change the box. Sorry for the bad news.
