Get an SR20 tranny and do an engine swap!
LOL... and throw in a turbo while you're at it...

seriosly, any tranny should fit from 91-99 1.6L sentra. see your local junk yard representative :D

I'm not 100% sure it's my tranny yet, It might be my cluch.
it was making a howling noise ,kinda what you would hear when backing up , And i could also hear like a berring and or metal scraping/grinding. A few day's ago the shifter seemed to get a bit stiff ,harder to put into gear, first gear being the hardest.

Then today i was in town and that's when it happend, all i heard was a loud scraping noise and then a clunk, after that i could not put it in any gear. So i sat there for a bit ,I was just about to call a tow truck and i tried one more time, i finally got it into 2nd gear.
When i went to pull away it kinda felt like the E brake was on but i got it rolling, I drove it all the way home in 2nd gear with my four way's on. It saved me about $60 bucks for the towing bill.
When i was driving i could smell gear oil really strong like it was burning. Now it's in the yard and i could see a bit of the gear oil dripping on the ground.

Any info or comments about this would be greatly appreciated, thanks for your help.

Did you check your tranny fluid? maybe your low. I had my tranny fixed last year b/c of the 5th gear popout. it cost me $800. (ouch!) for everything. BTW i drive a 92se.

I had a new passanger side axel put in just two week's before, I topped the tranny fluid up then.

$800

Yeah, I know its alot. Too bad the lsd wasn't out last year. Hey, maybe you should think about adding lsd if you have to get your tranny fixed.

Any RS5F31A should bolt right up. It is the same tranny that's on your car. I would get one for a 91-92 sentra because the speedometer uses a cable that attaches to the tranny. 93-94 I believe are electronic. I'm not sure though. I don't think you have to change your axles.
