    What makes transmission high temperture light come on
    transmission strains also builds up speed slowly rpm builds high before gear change
     
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      It is possible that your transmission is overheated and you may notice a smell from the transmission after you have driven it for awhile. You may also notice some slippage or delayed shifts while driving it. When you check the fluid level of the transmission, the fluid smells burnt. These are because of; your fluid level is low or the transmission's oil vents are clogged with dirt or undercoating; your transmission cooler is bad or (if equipped) the thermostat in your transmission is bad; the wrong type of fluid was put in your transmission, or the fluid is contaminated; in worst case, there's an internal problem in the transmission. Have your car checked professionally.

    Trans will only function in 2rd and reverse
    transmission will only operate in second gear or reverse. Transmission has been rebuilt and placed back in vehicle. still will not operate reght. suspect an electrical problem, what do you think.

      It could be the gear shift linkage is binding and the fluid is low. Also the throttle cable to the transmission is broken or disconnected. It is also possible that the vacuum modulator on the transmission is faulty, or the vacuum line is disconnected. Worst case, it’s an internal damage.

    P0756. Why the car hesitates when i step on gas, check engine is on.
    Lost the power and went back to 2nd gear with a maximum speed 25 miles/hour.Clear the code, the car back to normal, then it's cycled again. P0756 called for transmission solenoid B, it's been changed, the engine control computer tested good with a shop equipment.

      Google it and found the answer.
      GM has issued a TSB # 01-07-30-036C to cover all 2001-05 passenger cars and light duty trucks equipped with the 4L60-E or 4L65-E transmission. If the vehicle shows trouble code P0756, it’s a sign of a mechanical failure, not a problem an electrical connector. GM says that a small orifice on the top of the spacer plate can get clogged with debris and cause this trouble code. The repair involves removing the valve body spacer plate and inspecting orifice #29. The code can also be caused by a cracked, broken, or leaking 2-3 shift solenoid. A stuck or hung-up 2-3 shift valve could also bring up this code. If the vehicle is still in warranty, it will be covered. Otherwise, you will have to discuss the cost of repair with your dealer to see if GM is willing to pay for it as a goodwill gesture.
      The mechanics who asked that questions, will start to work on that issues.

    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      It could be your U-joint is out of grease or worn. Check under chassis to verify this. Also include in check up for loose exhaust hangers and wheel lug nuts.

      Bad instrument panel cluster. Contact a local GM dealer and ask them about the "goodwill repair"as there is a widely known fault with the clusters on GM trucks and there is a ton of them failing all over the place. This is not a recall. they are not obligated to do anything for you but I'm in this business 35 years and I know for a fact that they are goodwilling a ton of them. Be nice but get it done. One of my own clients took his Escalade to Cadillac and they replaced his for under $200 with all parts and labor about 6 months ago.

      What have you done so far? Don't start it, get rid of the contaminated fuel first. Did you already drain (siphon/drain your fuel from your tank and disconnect the fuel lines from the fuel tank) your fuel tank to get rid of the contaminated fuel (and flush it to remove the remaining water in your tank)?

      You can visit this link to have more idea how to drain your fuel tank http://www.automd.com/.../ on this page just follow step 1 till step 8 before you drain the fuel in your fuel tank.

      And check out this link if you are certain that the contaminated fuel is eliminated http://www.automd.com/.../

    My truck makes a clanging noise coming from the exaust - any ideas on what may be cuasing this?
     
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      I suspect that a worn or defective U-joint and an exhaust hanger are loose. Check under chassis and inspect these parts. Maybe U-joint needs greasing or replacement or the exhaust hanger bolts needs to be tightened.

    Recently I have had my transmission rebuilt, lately there has been a delay after I shift it into reverse.
    The time delay varies. Recently while driving down a road at a slow speed I saw something and wanted to back up. I put the shift lever in reverse and waited for the truck to backup, it never did shift into reverse. When I am going out in the A.M I shift into reverse ...

      You have to take the pinion and the ring gear out of the diff and you will find numbers on them.

    I got 33 inch tires what gears would give me better gas milelage
     
    • HouseCallAuto

      Don't even think about it. You would need to replace the gears in both front and rear differentials and it would take 50 years to amortize the fuel savings if there were any at all. The fact that you already have 33 inch tires on there is already giving you a benefit for your final drive gear ratio. 33 inch tires are already much bigger than stock. Bigger tires usually gives better gas mileage but take off power is affected.
