Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Is this a manual or automatic?

Manual 5 speed

have someone depress the clutch and watch the slave cylinder to make sure it opens all the way

Ask Your Own Nissan Question

also is it sitting on a incline?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
A slight incline now but it wasn't yesterday when I got it and the problem was already here I had to get it towed ive never driven it

so you bought it with it stuck in gear?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question

ok have you checked the slave cylinder yet?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
it moves all the way but the seal around it moves to every time it goes in and out

so next the trans needs to be pulled and the clutch inspected for issues if thats ok and still stuck in gear it will need a rebuild

Would the camshaft or the Knox or 02 sensors cause that

unfortunately no

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I read online a bunch of threads that it goes into safe mode and locks it in gear

thats for a automatic and they are referring to a shift lock mechanism which yours is a different setup completely

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
it needs a new clutch how much dose that cost?

I dont know if it does it will have to be pulled to find out, and are you asking a shop price or just parts and you doing it ?

Parts

http://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/nissan,2000,pathfinder,3.3l+v6,1364138,transmission-manual,clutch+kit,1993

Its about 120 for a decent kit and thats if the flywheel is ok if not thats another 50$

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
