I can't tell you exactly what's going on, but I do have some ideas for improvement.
Try changing your Transmission fluid, Redline is some good stuff.
Also for a more drastic change install 2JR Trucite Shifter bushings and 2Js Short Shifter it will make your shifts feel solid, direct. My 6th and Reverse are so easy to get into after the install.
Try putting pressure on the gear shifter (pushing on it towards 6th gear) while SLOWLY letting out the clutch. If you let it out too much with it halfway in gear it will grind but if you do it just right it will allow it to pop into gear. This is how I get in R. If this works for you I would assume this means your 6th gear syncro is shot.
2k2specv I was thinking about twm short shifter any thoughts? I'll probably switch to redline this summer cause I just had the Trans serviced
06epeed it doesn't move into gear like shifter is stuck just kinda sits there lol
Jon I just had a new clutch and slave put it so they relubed it with new Trans fluid and doesn't get easier
Thanks guys I really appreciate the feedback some one said it could be the bushing after driving think that could be it lol and it's funny this happens after I decided to not sell it lol
Where did you have it done? Nissan is specific about what is used and its not usually available at lube places. Nissan dealers usually use the correct fluid. After many lube changes over 295,000 miles I have noticed that the correct fluid makes a difference. Especially in temps -20 to 20f
See if it gets better when it warms up and ask them what they used. Realizing they have done many transmissions they still can use fluid that doesn't perform well as a daily driver in really cold weather.
I have an 07 spec v and this happened to me a few months ago i was up shifting to pass a car on the high way when it was almost like i missed 5th gear it ground a little then went in to gear after that though it was hard to get in to 6th then a few weeks later i was accelerating and i believed i missed 4th and it seamed to fix it then just last night i was passing another car missed 5th and back to being really hard to shift in to 6th again any thoughts what may be broken that can be replaced? my thoughts are maybe i bent something when i missed 5th and unbent it when i missed 4th
Dave stole my post. From what you say I would lean against a bad shifter bushing. Only other thing is the syncro. The bushing are rubber and break down. The bushings are easy to see by just pulling the cover to the shifter. I would think the 6th gear syncro is highly unlikely but you never know.
When I pulled my engine, I placed the shifter into neutral and hoped for the best. I did mess around and move the shifter arm on the transmission several times. After reconnecting the cables, the shifter doesn't feel like it is going into the gears correctly. I don't have the engine running yet...
I'm not really sure if this is the correct location for the posting, but this seems to be where the B16 owners get the most traction for views. Anyone going to Import Alliance in April? I plan on going, and I'll be leaving from Kentucky. Maybe a convoy?
My 2008 SE-R Spec V 2.5 engine has a rod loose. I am almost sure there is more damage to the engine than just the loose rod. I have tried to find another engine to replace the one that is damaged but so far no luck. I am willing to go back with a different size engine, if I can find one that...
Hello everyone, I recently joined this forum in order to help my friend with his 2012 Nissan Sentra SL. I'm a Honda guy by nature but love wrenching. Not new to the game but new to Nissan's so any info would be greatly appreciated.
My friend put Autolite plugs in and started getting a misfire...
