Question about 1999 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

Nissan 1999 Altima won't go into gear properly

I have a 1999 Nissan Altima 5-speed manual. My son pulled up to an intersection and stop light. He tried to pull out, but the car didn't move as if it was in neutral and the tach surged to 6000 as he pushed on the gas. He let off the gas, shifted to second and back to first, and the car pulled out slowly. He tried to drive it home about a mile and had to shift down to first at a few stoplights and signs. When he tried to speed up to get to second gear, he ran it up to 5-6000 to get enough road speed to hit second gear. The engine rpm ran to about 3500-4000 as he tried to maintain speed in second gear. When he got home after about a mile, he rolled it into a parking spot and tried to shift into reverse to back out of the road. The car would not move in reverse, and there was a smell similar to a burning clutch or brake pad. I went outside to try the vehicle. I depressed the clutch pedal, which felt normal in tension,m started the engine (which started normally) shifted the gear handle into reverse, added gas, and got no movement. Same in 1st gear. Any ideas

My 1999 nissan maxima 5 speed won't shift from 1st to second gear.


If it goes into other gears correctly, then the issue is likely a synchromesh problem with that particular gear, and the gearbox may have to be stripped.
You may try changing the gear oil first though, as this can often fix the issue without having to spend too much money on unnecessary repairs.

Hi! i have a 2002 nissan altima(3.5 with automatic transmission). i just got the same codes today. i had 2 different nissan technicians check my car. and they told me it's the revolution speed sensor. After 30 min. of use my car revs high until 8,000 rpm and stays on the same gear for a full 5 seconds or more, then changes to the next gear harshly!! sometimes it just won't change gears and i have to stop in the middle of a highway or avenue. lol!!! when i brake to a complete stop, the transmission slips. does this happen to you? good luck, bro!

Could be a belt? Does it get worse in the mornings when the car is cold? Does it cease or get less noticeable after a bit of driving? If yes then it's a simple matter of replacing/adjusting your drive or AC belt.
