    Default 1995 Nissan Pickup - 5 speed manual transmission hard to shift

    Hi,

    I have a 1995 Nissan Pick-up truck with 90,000 miles on it.

    It's becoming increasingly more difficult to shift it into 1st or 2nd gear.

    What needs to be done to solve this problem?

    Thanks and Merry Christmas!

    It could be caused by a number of things. Mechanical, lubrication,
    ambiant temperature. Try the simplest and cheapest solution first.
    I pulled the rubber boot off my old 85 Pulsar and squirted some oil on
    the bottom of the shift rod mechanism where it goes into the
    transmission. That worked for me.

    I would do Bill's suggestion, and then I would also have the fluid
    changed. Consider replacing the tranny fluid with a synthetic, such as
    Redline.

    When I shift into 1st or 2nd gear, I have to force it into position. At
    times it works fine, but now with the truck having 89,000 miles on it, it
    seems like the 1st and 2nd gear shift positions are not going into position
    smoothly with the clutch fully depressed.
    Is it grinding the gear a little, especially when cold? If so, I'd bet
    your clutch is starting to go. Try the 50 mph 5th gear test to see if
    it's slipping too. If there's no grinding and no slipping, just put
    some Redline MT-90 in there. You should notice a big difference.

    I also am having slight trouble shifting the same truck. Especially when it is cold. I changed my transmission fluid to R Line and it got worse. Thought it would help. Any ideas?
