Hello! Have a question about my 97 pickup transmission

Postby SPEED/// » Wed Apr 27, 2016 6:26 pm

Hello everybody, new guy here. I just bought a 1997 Nissan hardbody 2 wheel drive. It was driving great until this morning. I was going up a hill for work, and shifted from 4th to 5th and it did not go in. And after that no gear would go in. Transmission was shiftingperfectly u til this. A few times while taking off in first gear the truck would kind of struggle as if I were releasing the clutch to soon. The truck turns kn good and everything but if I try and put it in any gear it just grinds and don't go in.
Anybody have this issue before.?
Any help is appreciated. I'm hoping it's not the transmission. Because I don't really have that kind of money to spend on it. As why I bought it as a daily.
Thanks guys!

Almost sounds like the slave or master isn't pushing on the throwout bearing enough. Maybe get someone under the truck to look at it while you hit the clutch to verify its moving a good inch or so.

I have a 96 hard body and today I pulled out from a red light and everything was fine until I got to 5th and nothing, 1st through 4th are just fine but now there's no 5th or reverse

You should probably just start a new thread. That's an entirely separate issue.
