#3 of 6 Noise from transmission?
Jul 03, 2011 (7:40 pm)
I own a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder 4x4 XE. It has been jerking at speeds above 30 mph. Mechanics told me it is the U-Joint. I changed them and the jerk still occurs. Later the service engine soon light came on. I realized that the radiator coolant was mixing with the transmission oil. I now changed the radiator and changed the transmission oil. The jerk still occurs and the service engine soon is still on. The code relating to it is P1754. At times the transmission gears get stuck and don't change. When its been hot and running for some time this occurs. Mechanics now tell me I need a new transmission but I do not have money to buy a new transmission. Any suggestions? I called Nissan dealers and they deny to change the radiator and any problems relating to this, since "it isn't under warranty" they can't do anything except put a new transmission estimating $6,000.00 he told me. Any suggestions please?

Yeah isn't it so much fun???? What do you want to hear? That there is a quick fix? I have been going around and around with Nissan...first having the ujoint and front friveshaft replaced when all along the tranny was bad...My Tranny has been on BACK ORDER for 8 weeks on thursday. I called Nissan1 and opened up ANOTHER claim because they closed the first claim after replacing the drive shaft/u Joint. This file i opened is to try to expedite the tranny coming from japan to my dealer. So now i am waiting for a answer from " the claims Specialist" to tell me if they can get it any sooner to the dealer...Luckily for ME, this all happened before it hit 80k and my radiator warranty is in effect, making the tranny covered also.

I guess I am too late with this response but maybe it will help someone else. I had the exact same problem and it was a coil that feeds the spark to the spark plug.
