    Why does my car not want to shift gears
     
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      Low or contaminated transmission fluid is the most common cause. Change the fluid and observe the changes. Shift linkage is probably loose or cable is broken/detached; worst case, there's an internal damaged that requires a check up of professional.

      p1456 means you have a leak in your evaporative system which collects the evaporative gases from you fuel and reroutes them back into the intake. you will notice increased fuel usage and possible overheating problems. there is a possibility that it might only be the fuel cap

      P1739 i a problem in the third clutch pressure switch. Most of the time this DTC follows some type of shifting problem, like late shifting to 3rd or 4th gear. It may be a bad connection or an intermittent problem, but usually it just means the switch is bad.

      P1456 - Replace the fuel cap. This is the cause most of the time on Odyssey.

      P1739 - Get your meter and tools.

      1. Using a digital voltmeter - not a test light - check the voltage on the White/Red wire at the 3rd gear pressure switch or at the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) terminal B24. There should be approximately 12. 0 volt reference from the PCM until the transmission shifts to 3rd gear, and then the voltage should drop to 0 as the 3rd gear pressure switch closes and grounds the circuit. If there is no reference voltage to the 3rd gear pressure switch, check the White/Red wire for an open or a short to ground between the PCM and the transmission.

      2. If there is a reference voltage to the 3rd gear pressure switch and it reads 0 volts all the time with the 3rd gear pressure switch plugged in, either the 3rd gear pressure switch is defective or there is actually oil pressure to the 3rd gear circuit all the time.

      3. If there is reference voltage to the 3rd gear pressure switch, but the voltage never drops to 0 volts when the transmission is in 3rd gear, the 3rd gear pressure switch may be faulty or there is an internal transmission malfunction.
      Potential Causes:
      3rd Gear Pressure Switch
      3rd Gear Pressure Switch Circuit
      Automatic Transmission

      The 3rd gear pressure switch is located under the vehicle on the front of the transmission and has a single White/Red wire to the switch. The ground for the 3rd gear pressure switch is through the body of the switch through its mounting in the transmission. The 3rd gear oil pressure switch is a normally open switch that closes with the transmission oil pressure in the 3rd gear. It is very common to have an internal transmission problem.

    After engine heats up trans w/n shift out 2nd gear. gears shift(automatic) when engine is cool why is this?
    check engine light is on, has about 150k miles, driving along when engine heats up trans down shift to 2nd gear and w/n change.
     
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      Have you been into transmission service before this happened? The transmission builds up pressure inside and the excess pressure should be released, if there more fluid inside it will get easily pressurized and possibly will seize the shift actuator. Clogged oil vents in the transmission and line to fluid cooler may also raise the pressure. Check the condition of the fluid and its level if correct; change the fluid and filter and if possible flush the transmission.

    Pilot is a 4 wheel drive with new michelin latitude tour tires, do I need chains when going into snow covered roads
     
    • J and K AUTOMOTIVE TOWING AND REPAIR
      i lived in boston mass and there we had studded snow tires and some still use chains its what you feel comfortable with

      The Latitude Tour is Michelin's Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season light truck tire developed for the drivers of crossovers, sport utility vehicles and light duty pickups looking to combine comfort, wear and fuel efficiency. Most Latitude Tour tires meet Michelin's Green X standards for long tread life, good wet traction and low rolling resistance, as well as provide year-round traction, including in light snow.

      Latitude Tour tires use a silica-based tread compound molded into a symmetric tread design optimized with Michelin's MaxTouch Construction to deliver more miles of treadwear. Stable shoulder blocks and a continuous center rib enhance responsiveness and highway stability, while wide circumferential grooves help resist hydroplaning and multiple sipes provide biting edges in snow. Latitude Tour tires also feature Michelin Comfort Control Technology that combines computer-optimized design and precision manufacturing to reduce vibration and road noise. The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts under the tread area on top of a polyester cord carcass that enhances ride quality.

      NOTE: While Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season light truck tires offer all-season versatility including traction in light snow, tire sizes featuring extremely wide tread widths may limit the traction this type of tire can provide in deep snow.
      Hope this help and be SAFE.

    What would cause automatic transmission to slip?
    The only time is happens is between 55-65mph. It's just like driving and pushing clutch in until it partially disengages except it's an auto. Fluid level is ok and was going to get trans flushed but they suggested not doing that yet and take it to trans shop.

      Sounds like you were given good advise. There are many additives that claim to stop slipping if you wanted to try them first although you will need to pump out a bit of fluid to make room so you don't overfill and possibly blow a seal.

    Why does my car jump
    When I am sitting still at a red light or something; my car will start jumping front to back, but when you go it stops, and when you put it in between gears it runs great. What is wrong with my car?
     
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      Check your alignment and suspensions; perhaps it needs adjustment or replacement. Bring to a shop for inspection. A worn engine and transmission mountings should also consider. Have the engine diagnose by a scan tool.

    Automatic Trans hard downshift to First gear when stopping
    When approaching a stop as I slow and the RPMs get to about 1000 rpms, the car shifts down hard to first rpms just to 1500 then idle at stop at 500 rpms. If I come to a fast stop, hard on brakes no hard downshift. My transmission guy said yea they can do that ...

      Do you have an automatic transmission? Because if you do, it is possible that your main control solenoid is stuck or damaged. If possible diagnose your vehicle with a scan tool to know if there is a stored trouble code in your vehicle and if all your electrical controls and sensors in your transmission are still working great. The other common (but not limited) possible causes of it are damage main control separator plate and loose main control assembly bolt or its gasket is damaged.

      Whose fault was it? Either way you still have to bring it to a repair shop, transmission jobs are not generally a DIY activity. And incase its not your fault, aren't they covered with warranty? your car is barely 2 years old.

      Also, this is the firs time i heard of a DTC with Code E, most DTC's start with a Pxxxx

      bim i google what you said that code E is that on your radio?
    • J and K AUTOMOTIVE TOWING AND REPAIR
      bim here is what i found out for you i have no clue if this will help you but good luck................................................I have a 2009 CR-V EX-L, the battery went dead and I got the "Code Error E" message. I did not know where the reset code was, so I went to the dealer. The guy at the desk found the code in my service book. He tried to re-set and couldn't, then he removed the "backup" fuse for 10 mins and re-installed The Code Error E was still there. I couldnt leave the car so I left. I tried removing the "Backup" fuse, while it was out I checked the radio, still had power, just the door locks didnt work. Finally I disconnected the battery for 10 mins, when I re-connected and turned on the rado, I had the option to enter the code, I did and it worked. Note that the owners manual said after an hour you would be able to re-enter the code if you got the Code Error E message, but that did not happen. Only thing that worked was disconnecting the battery.

      Do you mean that your transmission fluid is low? Do you have a transmission fluid visible leak? What have you done to fix your vehicle?

    What are the problems of my car because I have engine light and SRS light on?
    I have 175000 miles. Codes are P1167 and P1162
     
    • Autobahn
      11/29/2010 Autobahn
      P1167/P1162 Before and after ccatalytic- Usually this is an O2 sensor code, BUT that is quite different from the front sensors, most people thing its an O2 sensor but it is an A/F ratio sensor. Make sure your car is under the correct emiisions label because there are times that a car in hmmmm let say New York that has the CA emission label and those mismatches trigger the code. Also F23A1 is VTEC and the F23A4 is ULEV VTECH. There is a big difference when it comes to the correct O2 Sensor.
    • RC
      11/30/2010 RC
      P1167 is HO2S S1 heater failure
      P1162 is (AF Sensor) (S1) failure
      You probably need to replace the AF sensor before the cat. The SRS light is the air bag. I've seen some Honda dealers that will check and reset this for free (first time). If it comes back they will need to troubleshoot the SRS system.
