      They will make noises while the vehicle is moving, have too much play, could cause a vibration, damaged seals and rust.

    Why does my car shake when i go faster than 45 mph.
    120000. the wheels are balanced. the front end is aligned. 80% tread on the tires. ball joints and all the steering components in really good shape. i feel the shaking between the steering wheel and my feet.

      just a hunch but, just because your tires still have plenty of tread on 'em doesn't mean that you may not have a tire with a bad steel belt. Have them checked for that.

    Jerking when shifting into Drive
    I just bought the car and it had been sitting for 2-3 years. It needed a new motor. Everything is together, when I put it in drive the 4th time it jerked really hard. Could it be there's not enough pressure from the transmission from sitting so long? And I can't ...

      I think there's no dipstick for the transmission. Check under chassis, investigate transmission area and you may find the check valve of this.

      1. Check for good power on the BTSI fuse using a Digital Volt Ohm Meter (DVOM) with the key on the run position.

      2. If the fuse does not have good power, check for an ignition switch problem.

      3. If the fuse is ok, verify power on the Pink wire at the shifter assembly with the key on and the Dark Green/white with the brake released. Power on the Dark Green/white should go away with the brake applied. If no power, check for power into the wiring harness. A console wiring harness inline connector (C240) exists in the harness.

      4. If there is voltage before C240 and nothing at the shifter, repair the broken wire.

      5. Check for a good ground on the Orange/black. If no ground, jump the Orange/black at the park/neutral switch to the Black and recheck shifter operation.

      6. If the solenoids now work, replace the park/neutral switch

      How long ago was the transmission rebuilt? If you had a shop do it I would take it back to them and possibly have it fixed under warranty. Usually the shakes is a result of low transmission fluid level or contaminated transmission fluid. If the transmission was rebuilt more than 30,000 miles ago I would start by changing the fluid. There are also many additives available that help lubricate the parts and restore seals and so forth. I would pick up one of those products and add it to your fluid change per the directions on the product.

    Why would my shifter be hard to switch from park

      If you are parking with your front wheels hard up against something, it can cause the parking pawl to hang up.
      10/4/2010 karen
      no it happens all the time and the car isnt park against anything. My key sticks in the ignition and and the gear shifter is very hard to shift from park and once i get it out of park it is easy to shift from the reverse to drive.

    Shifter stuck in park and wont move
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      Could be park switch is defective. You can use the "Find a Shop" feature of AutoMD for nearby shops in your area.

      If the car is parked with the front wheels pushing up against something like a divider strip and then placed in park, the parking pawl may be sticking. If you can push the car foreward just a bit it may come out of park.

    One of the transmission cooler lines leaks, Do both lines have to be replaced ?
    Where the lines are attached to transmission, they are secured with a plate that has no cut out to remove either line individually. Looks if either line needs replacement, both have to be done.
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      Sure this is not a DIY job. To free you from hassle and worries, let the mechanic do the job. You can use the "Find a Shop" feature of AutoMD for nearby shops in your area.

      What have you done so far to resolve the problem of your vehicle? It is usually not a DIY because it is located inside your transmission. You can visit this link view an image of your torque converter clutch solenoid (TCC)
