Pickup XE: My 95 hardbody with an automatic transmission will

Customer Question
My 95 hardbody with an...
My 95 hardbody with an automatic transmission will not shift through all the gears. I can start with the shift lever in 1st to get it going. then shift it into 2nd and D and the transmission will shift up but does not shift to any other gear. Other times I get in, with a cold engine, and it shifts through all gears just fine.

It will shift into one higher gear than when put in 1st but thats it. I dont think its second gear though because I can do 50mph at 3000 rpm. I think its in third gear that point!
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I first assumed it was going into "limp" mode but I can shift from "1st" into "D" and can hear the transmission engage at that time. Also, I checked the tranny fluid and it is clean and full. Actually its a little overfilled, could this be the problem?

No the engine continues to rev up and up with no shifting. if I release the accelerator doing say 40 mph the rpms drop to 1000ish. when I push the accelerator again it revs to about 2k to 2500 then the tranny "catches" again and truck will accelerate

is the fluid bright red or is it a brownish color?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No...when I shift into first, it seems as if it is in 2nd by the amount of power I get. then I shift into 2nd or D and it shift up a gear but no further. There is no difference between 2nd and D.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
no check engine light or error codes to be read. I went through the diagnostics procedure, modes 1 to 5, and no codes and everything worked as its suppose to.

Nissan Mechanic: Tim's Auto Repair, mechanic replied 2 years ago
you need to check the wiring to the transmission to make sure it has no damage,,if the wiring is good,,i would think it is the solenoid unitthanksPLEASE COPY AND PASTE the link below to your browser, I have uploaded more info on this there please copy and paste the link below to your main browser[INTERNET EXPLORER or FIREFOX].https://www.dropbox.com/s/wm8hzm55fcnocw5/0715-pathfinder-Close%20Window.doc?dl=0.if the link doesn’t work that way, try it this waythanks.www.dropbox.com/s/wm8hzm55fcnocw5/0715-pathfinder-Close%20Window.doc?dl=0.
