Automatic gearbox problems!!

Hello everybody.

56' plate nissan navara aventura automatic, 35k miles

I am having a little bit of trouble with my navara at the moment and it realy is the wrong time of year for your usually reliable 4x4 to start playing up.

Whats wrong is that when reverse gear is selected nothing is happening until you give it a good rev and then it will engage and jump back quite sharply.

Before i just used to keep my foot on the brake until i felt it engage and then it would take off with no problems but not anymore.

I have taken the navara to my friends garage and had all the oils etc etc checked and everything seems fine but there is definitely something wrong with reverse. My friend has no idea what could be wrong as this is only happening in reverse. Drive, 1, 2, and 3 are all fine.

If any of you nice people on here have heard of this before or can shed any light on my situation it would be very much appreciated as I am very reliant on my navara at this time of year.

I Thank yous all very much in advance.

My friend had a similar problem with a BMW, turned out to be an electrical fault on the gearbox, common problem on bmw's, I'm sure someone with more navara knowledge will be along shortly

Re: Automatic gearbox problems!!

Apparently many auto D40's do this occasionally, some more than others, i haven't had this with mine, but i've heard of it with others.

Has yours always done it, or is it something that's recently started?

Re: Automatic gearbox problems!!

No it hasnt always been as bad as this. Before if you selected reverse and let your foot off the brake too quickly then it would give a small jerk backwards but it wasnt anything like it is now.

I am not sure what is meant by "is reverse selected by switch"???

It just has the usual auto box gear stick. Park at the top, then down a notch for reverse, then neutral, drive, 3, 2, 1.

Thanks

Re: Automatic gearbox problems!!

You are definitely not alone, although yours sounds slightly more serious than usual:

Most threads/inquirys on this topic seem to come up inconclusive , I'm afraid.

Re: Automatic gearbox problems!!

I would be inclined to say that it would be electronic.

Thanks
