Question about 1998 Nissan Pathfinder

Slams into 2nd Gear

I just bought a 1998 Pathfinder. It accelerates fine through 1st gear, but when it goes into 2nd gear it SLAMS in. All the other gears shift no problem. Anyone have any suggestions on what it could be and how to go about fixing it?

    I have a '97 with 140,000 miles on it and I have owned it for six years and within the past year it has been shifting rough as well

    I ended up bringing mine down to the nissan dealership and they had discovered that the throttle positioning sensor had not been put on properly. So they wound the coil and now there is no problem. Also a fuse had been blown from the incorrect placement of the sensor , so we replaced that!

This is a very common issue with Pathfinders and in most cases smooths out after the vehicle is driven for about 5-10 minutes. Nothing to worry about. These things are tanks.

Transmission overhauled, however, band overadjusted


Bands are not adjustable. Why do you think it's a band issue? The band only comes on during manual second gear, not second gear while in drive. It sounds like a check ball was inadvertently left out of the valve body during reassembly.

Car slams in and out of gear between 45-65m.p.h., Starts ruogh..


The switch that tells the computer what gear the car is in is bad. It's located on top of trans and can be replaced fairly easy. If it is white or gray it has been revised to black. Believe it is called range selector switch. About 80.00 at Ford dealer.
