From what I have seen, when this happens the transmission clutches inside are damaged and you will need a transmission overhaul or replacement of the transmission, reverse band and clutches bad. Thanks let me know if you have more questions, ROY!

Seems strange that manual low is not affected. I am a licenced Auto Service technician. Not too much experience with Nissan, but seems strange to me. Never seen an import loose a gear so quickly. Is there a quick fix? Or do i have to rip her down? 287,000 Km. It was suggested that my reverse servo seal needed replacing. Would appreciate a confirmation. Yay or Nay?

This a common problem on the pathfinders the clutches go bad I would tear it down in spect clutches and seals for leaks inside . Thanks ROY!
