SOURCE: 1995 Nissan XE Pickup Transmission Problems-PLEASE HELP

your luck as with mine is not good. thought I had a bad bearing, after droping the tranny and seperating the housing, I have a broken counter shaft. after looking for another with no luck, the tranny shop informed me that was common for these transmissions. parts are expensive, to rebuild would cost aprox.$800.00 or more. the main cause is the front bearing is supported in alum. causing shaft to move which first takes out the bearing, then the strain snaps the shaft. taking out all gears except 4th and only moves while in 4 wheel drive.

Have all gears that work find but will not go in reverse it a 5 speed

Is this a new truck to you? Some manual's have a manual reverse lock-out, meaning you have to engage the lock-out to shift into reverse. This is usually done by pulling up on a small lever just under the shift knob.

Otherwise, the lock-out is inside the transmission and if that breaks, the transmission has to be removed to fix it.

The other possibility is that you don't have a synchronized reverse gear. It will not automatically sync with the engine speed. Try lightly putting it in reverse while letting the clutch up to the engage point, you know, right where the clutch first starts to grab.

What do I have to do to fix 5 speed manuel transmission wont shift into 2nd gear 97 s-10 4cyl

If it goes into the other gears OK , then it's not the clutch. You have bad syncronizers in the transmission. You can buy them in a kit. (All the syncronizers.) It's a basic transmission rebuild.

Depending how many miles are on the vehicle, the clutch plate may need to be replaced. Do you hear any strange "grinding" noises when engaging or disengaging the clutch? I'm assuming you have checked the hydraulic fluid in the reservoir and it is full. You may also want to change the fluid as hydraulic fluid deteriorates over time and it may not be completely disengaging the clutch. Please rate this answer, thanks.

Walk away from this truck unless you have a professional look at it to determine the problem. You can spend lost of cash repairing a vehicle today. This truck appears to have multiple problems. I would not risk any real money on this truck as it may be a money pit.

I have a 1995 nissan pickup the transmission have a metal to metal. 5 sp manual 4th gear is but all other are ruff,with u let out on the clutch.

A lack of gear oil in the transfer case or gear box will make shifting and gears become ruff then destroyed within a few hundered miles, sometimes much much less. Unless this truck has had a history of bad shifting technique I have found these trucks and gears to be extremely reliable. If the clutch makes a loud wirring noise when engaged and disengaged ther may be a bearing problem. Check the U joints in the driveline. Bad U joints would usualy result in a lot of gear box twisting and jerking when starting out but diminishes with speed.

Test the transmission module. It controls everything the transmission does, the timing of shift points, gear selection, overdrive, etc
