Default 94 hardbody auto trans issue

hey everyone I am Kerry from Gulfport Mississippi and this is the first forum I’ve ever joined in my life. Go figure. I just recently picked up a 94 Nissan 4 x 4 extended cab. And the transmission only drives in first and reverse. If anybody has any ideas I would really appreciate the input. Look forward to hearing from you.

"MT" would be manual transmission.



Apparently YEPEE didn't see "auto trans issue" as the title.

I'd check the linkage to the transmission first, and vacuum lines to the transmission second. DISCLAIMER: all five of my own vehicles are manual transmission.

Oh yeah I guess I should have gotten the MT. It shifts from reverse to drive just fine but it just won’t shift through any other gears “automatically “ For the lack of better terminology

Welcome. Check all vacuum lines and replace any that are worn or damaged. check the vacuum diaphragm and rod as well for damage as well.

OK sounds good. Am I to assume that there are vacuum lines going to the Transmission? I haven’t looked that closely but I was pretty sure the solenoids were electric but I am not well-versed in nissans at all. this is one of the first ones I’ve owned
