Hi, I am new to this site. I have a 2000 Pathfinder SE 2WD. By the way, this site is very helpful to me, but I have been having some tranny issues.. it shifts very hard from 1st to 2nd, but the rest of the shifts are smoother than the 1st, but not a total smooth shift. It seems to have a longer rev from 1st to 2nd. I changed the fluid but no difference. And also when I first start driving with a cold transmission, it seems to act wierd when I brake from a slow speed. Maybe you guys may have an idea before I bring it to the shop? Thanks

i noticed the same thing on my pathy (whith is a y2k) but i think its normal. i get out of 1st at about 3500 and second around 3. but for a 8k redline it isnt terrible. also it helps if you let off the gas between shifts, if i dont let off it will go to about 4k before 2nd gear if you let off it will shift quicker and smoother.

thanks for the reply. yes, thats exactly what its doing. i guess its normal. i took it to the shop earlier today to get a tune up at 135,000 miles and also checked out the tranny, they cant find any problems with it after driving it. i do find it easier to let off the gas between gears also. besides that, the pathy runs excellent..they are very dependable.
