1997 Nissan Maxima 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 12500 miles
the transmission doesn't want to work in 1st or 2nd gear. It stalls as soon as I let the clutch out. Reverse however works splendidly. Also I was screwing around and checking that I could shift into all the gears after the car was put back together. I could shift into gears 1-5 perfectly until I tried reverse, then I could only shift into 1-4 + R. So I disassembled it completely again and found a lose check ball in the transmission case that I think belongs to the reverse gate assembly. Also I counted the number of check balls my FSM says should be in the transmission (it was 9 total) and I found that I only have 8 of them. Furthermore, the FSM depicts that there is a check ball that should be on the reverse lever assembly but it is not clear as to where exactly it goes.
have the same problem?
