Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hey there, thanks for the question.
is the shifter itself going into 1st, the transmission just never goes into gear?
so you bought the car this way?just trying to get all the details. thanks for the good description?
also, what is the mileage please.
how many miles?
adn I assume you moved the shiftter through the gears and watched the linkage at the CVT itself? all was fine?
does the indicator on the dash say D ? but yet when you try to accelerate it won't shift out of first just revs extremely high at low speeds? shifting to tiptronic makes no difference as well?
SOrry I am confused. This is a 2008? because the shifter should say P, R, N, D
it doesn't have a 1, 2, or 3 for the CVT model?
ok, thank you that makes sense which is exactly what I was thinking was going on.
when driving the vehicle around it didn't present any revolution sensor codes?
well it's hard to say based solely off just the symptoms. We need to look at come live data from the input and output shaft to see if your getting readings.
assuming it has the proper CVT NS2 fluid (green) and somebody didn't change it, and the linkage is working normally, then its more than likely going to be related to a sensor or a internal issue with the valve body. The only sensor that's serviceable outside the transmission is the secondary speed sensor.
Sounds good, let me know if you get any codes by driving it around slowly in first gear to make them trigger in the TCM.
If you need further help at that point I will be more than happy to assist further, just not enough data at this point to nail it down to a specific part failure.
You can run the car on the blocks i guess. If it's drive able then just drive it a little bit.
I wanted to check back and see how things were going?
If I can provide more assistance I would be happy to.
