Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi there thanks for the question
generally when your other gears seem to work normally
this tells us the linkage and shifter is working properly
more than likely the problem is the clutch band
internal to the transmission
which is why it doesn't work in just drive.
unfortunately there is no easy fix for this, the transmission will have to come out and come apart.
let me know if you have further questions please.
