Hello, I got a 1993 Nissan 240sx auto, an I have heard that the stock trannys in these cars are not the greatest. I have also noticed that when its going from second - third sometimes it just wont shift i guess, an it just revs reallly high. I was also just lookin over some threads here an found that it could be Torque converter (something i know nothing about). Let me know what you think!

Do your self a favor...check all your fluids dont over fill the trani may also change the trani fluid and filter. If it smells burned or brownish then it may be more serious. But try the fluid change and filter change 7 quarts of fluid if you goto change the fluid and filter.... The torque converter...This attaches to the flywheel and then the trani. The trani weighs about 450lbs. You will need to remove the trani to get to the torque converter. NOT an easy first timer job unless you have the correct tools.....

Sounds like your tranny is starting to go.You may need to get it rebuilt or consider another tranny =(. Ever think about going 5speed?Im in my 3rd s13,ive never even driven the automatics but I do know that the 5speed trannys are pretty reliable. ANy other opinions?

Hello anyone need a bellhousing flywheel torque converter etc. to convert a sr20 rwd to an automatic i bought my car someone had done the swap and it was already automatic the transmission is the exact same as what comes in 240s or if someone wants to try putting a sr20 in a 4wd pathfinder/pickup automatic it would also bolt up for that. If anyone is interested make an offer i'll sell it through ebay

Did you also replace the tranny filter? It may be plugged up.

Always check the ATF level with the tranny fully warmed up and engine idling.

Did you notice if the old ATF had a burnt smell to it. If so, the clutch disks are shot.
