third gear is the problem they are looking for. It will gring when shifting from 2nd to 3rd. as for your reverse problem put it into a forward gear let out on the clutch then shift into reverse. that should cure the problemSilverSpec175 said:Thats what mine does when I put it into reverse. The gears start grinding. But it doesn't do it all of the time and with my luck, wouldn't do it when I take it to the dealer. I guess I'll have to wait and see if it gets any worse.
if it is not grinding every time I would say you are missing the shift point. Also if you look under the hood and look how the shifter mech works you will see why it feels chunky when shifting gears. I found synthetic tranny fluid improves the feel and action of the shifter.NISMO-CONVERT said:Well I have just sent in my 3rd negative survey to Nissan of America. Mine has ground 3rd a few times and popped out of reverse a few times too. Is there a way or place I can check for tech service bulletins on my Spec V?
Nissan only recomends a gl/4 rated oil so you do not have too many choices. Mt90 works great in mine. I switched to it as soon as I bought the car. The car takes 2 3/8 quartsNISMO-CONVERT said:The 3 surveys were for Nissan service as a whole, not about them NOT fixing the grinding issue. The service where I live SUX bad. I can shift the car perfect now that I have been driving it over 5000 miles. I am just a picky SOB because this is my first brand new car and I want it friggen perfect. If others are getting 03 tranny's and better ECUs I want mine to as well...know what I mean
BTW, what is everyone running for synthetic fluid? In some of my VW's I have ran Redline MT90 with success. What is the Spec supposed to run? Thanks in advance!
Hey I was wondering, my gear box hasnt been feeling as smooth as it used to feel when it was oh so new :-( . I was wondering if putting that synthetic tranny fluid would help cuz man i know that once the engine is broken in thats great but man i miss the smoothness of that new trannny :-(.............cortrim1 said:if it is not grinding every time I would say you are missing the shift point.
