    Does anyone have any pics or can anyone explain how to position the manual valve when reinstalling the valve body on a 1st gen AT? I completely forgot to position it during reinstall last week and ended up switching all my gears to drive 😅. Getting this thing back to a place where I can work on...

    Hey, I changed all 5 of spark plugs, tempted many times on the 6th. Ran out of time, and daylight: 2 weeks later, successfully changed 6th spark plug, ran fine for about 2 trips to local store, now not wanting to switch gears. It hesitates, tries to go, and then catches. (slings me forward)...

    I'm rebuilding my transmission and would like some advice on my findings. The only symptom was that my 2004 SC 4x4 (RE4R01A) wouldn't move in reverse. The major problem is that the reverse clutch oil seal on the oil pump cover supply shaft was destroyed. Since pulling it apart, I can see why it...

    Hi Everyone, My mom is having problems with her 2006 Xterra. Because of COVID-19 I haven't been able to go over there to see for myself so I'm trying to help her diagnose and best as I can. She is describing a weird situation. Reverse works normally, but in drive there is NO power. She is...

    Installing a sending unit for a A/T temp gauge. The instructions say to install the sending unit into the transmission test port, but looks like the X has two of em? Any idea which one would be best for the most accurate reading? FSM diagram: These are technically line pressure test ports...

    So I just recently purchased an 05, with 106500 on it. It just started not starting in 1st. I've checked the trans fluid, it's nice and red, and doesn't smell. If I turn it off and restart, it starts in 1st, until I stop, and then it starts in 3rd again. Help

    TLDR; Local scrapyard has a 2001 V6 4WD 5 speed. I have a 2000 V6 4WD Automatic Xterra. I've already robbed the clutch and manual brake pedal off of it. I can purchase the entire Frontier for roughly $300 to use further as a donor vehicle. Just wanting to confirm interchangeability between...

    2004 1st gen Xterra, supercharged. My transmission is making an audible clunk and making the whole car shake when switching from P to R, from R to D and back, etc (basically shifting gears while stationary). Only does this when the car is cold (after sitting overnight). After the car is driven...

    Okay, I picked up a 2002 VG33ER X with 210k on the body and 170k on the engine (not sure if it’s the original transmission) and I’m pulling my hair about thinking of what I should do with my transmission. It’s an automatic, and the day after I got it my reverse went out. And by went out I mean...

    So to make a long story short, sunk $3k into the tranny still runs loud and now I’m throwing 0744/0740 codes. I have cleared them only to have them return, this after the fact the mechanic supposedly rebuilt the tranny. How do I fix the codes and should I attempt to take it back to the same...

    Hi All 2007 X with about 185K miles. I had a problem with my automatic transmission last week. Check engine came on after a hard shift from first into 2nd. Pulled over. Found I had no reverse and wouldn't shift out of 2nd. Took it to a shop with a mechanic I trust who told me without...

    Reverse decided to stop working, noticing it only happens when car hasnt been running for a while. I have to turn the car on and off a few times to get it to reverse. Drive and neutral works fine. Transmission oil is good. My motor was also replaced during the summer due to over heating. Has...

    Hello folks, new guy here, but I've had my '06 Xterra since 2010. Now up to 170K miles. Just encountered the dreaded radiator/transmission problem, had my truck towed to a shop, and just got my quote yesterday for ~$5200. Ouch. This is really the first major repair I've come up against with...

    Hi, I've looked around the forums for awhile today and haven't been able to find any answers to my problem, so I apologize if I missed a thread on this. Sorry in advance for the long post!

    I was driving the Xterra Saturday. We went to leave the store and about 1000 feet into the drive, the vehicle shifted hard. I look down and all the lights on the dash were on, check engine, abs, brake, you name it, it looked like a Christmas tree. I slowed down to pull into a parking lot. It...

    Hi All, I just recently replaced the clutch in my 2000 Xterra. It was a PITA to get it out and back in, but it's working great now...well....except for the fact that transmission fluid is now leaking out at the front where it connects to the engine. Sooooo....I'm assuming that in the removal...

    I have some weird electrical problem. Basically the car loses power for a split second and then it comes back. When I say it loses power, I mean everything: lights, radio, gauge cluster, etc. When it comes back on, if my foot is on the gas, it is now in neutral, and the O/D light is on...

    My 01 Xterra has just about 176K miles, automatic SE V6 3.3L version, and I've been noticing that it has been shifting a bit poorly now I have many questions to ask. I don't think it was ever changed out to begin with. I wasn't able to find a Transmission filter/pan on Auto-Zone and couldn't...
