1988 nissan maxima ,, doesn't seem to be shifting into 4th gear even with the overdrive button pushed in ?

I heard that the overdrive control is temperature sensitive ... it's been like 5 degrees here lately could that have something to do with it ? Shall I wait until it warms up a little and see what happens ? thanks


I have a 1999 Volkswagon jetta and sometimes when it's cold it delays in switching gears on the 1st gear??!!

Start simple. Always. When was the last time you checked your transmission fluid? And in temperatures that low, I would suggest always giving your vehicle a chance to warm up before driving. At least 15 minutes before leaving.

How much is a 2007 Nissan pathfinder cost?

The temperature could have something to do with it. If you drove it long enough to warm up (45 min), and it still didn't shift, you may have a problem. I would wait until it gets warmer, and see if it begins shifting again. It won't hurt anything as long as you aren't going much over 60mph. You will just use a little more gas.

Which of these convertibles would u choose to drive & why ? Mazda MX-5 Miata, Honda S2000, Porsche Boxster S,?

Check the throttle control linkage to the transmission. It might be sticking. Try to lube it, if it doesnt work, the cable may have rusted out and the its stuck.
