1991 Nissan Pathfinder 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 275000 miles
Hi, I recently replaced the starter on my 91 pathfinder; someway I must have caught something on the shifter linkage that goes into the transmission and pulled it out about an inch. I pushed it back in and went about finishing my starter instal. When I tried to start the car it would not start in park. I went to pull the shifter to N andit it would not click into the gears. In the approximate neutral position the truck started but was in drive and would not change out of that gear. Suspecting that I had slid the lever back in the wrong position I went back under the car pulled it out again to see if there was another position that it would fit. It did slide in easily with a slightly more forward angle but now when starting it is in reverse with the same shifter feel.
