Almera Transmission issues

Postby rango tango » September 6th, 2018, 12:56 pm

Good day, i have an almera qg18 e- throttle
When yuh driving normal the car just suddenly gears down, and stay on one gear. I believe is #1 gear.
When the car stops and put it in park and back on drive, it works normal again.
No check light on, transmission oil on the full mark.
It happened twice already on separate occasions.
Any suggestions what is the cause of this.

Thanks

is the over drive light blinking when you restart after it happens ??
16/17 times. ??
if so it may be your transmission solenoids that are going bad / bad.

check ryotech performance hav him do a scan and check out everything
he pinpointed my solenoid failure and replaced it with the new upgraded unit from nissan.

no they dont sell individual solenoids - they come as a kit on a harness you simply remove and replace.

its inside the transmission so you'l need ur tech to do it for u.

theres 5 solenoids on the kit

shift solenoid A - allows u to shift from 1-2-3-4
shift solenoid B allows u to shift from 4-3-2-1
over drive solenoid
and two others i cant remember


part # - valid for only transmissions model RE4FO3B

But if you check your transmission repair guy they will replace that solenoid for about $550 with a tested used part.

my upgraded set of solenoids i bought from japan thru massey - padna linked me with it for 2K after discount.
(its was $3700 before discount)

the solenoid kit may be different for each transmission model. these are as follows :
RE4R01A, RL4R01A, RE4R03A, RE4F02A, RL4F02A RE4F03A, RL4F03A, RE4F03B RE4F04A, RE4F04B RE5R05A RE5F22A

if you can - go into any motorist outlet and giv them ur chassis # and they will pull it up and tell you whats the most up to date part nissan released .

keep in mind if you changed ur engine lets say from QG to SR going to the motorist will be of no help whatsoever as they can only pull up parts for the car based on the original configuration.

once u hav the part # you can order it urself thru amayama

you hav 3 choices

u can either :-
1. buy a f used solenoid pack and install it...but they dont last long... some have excellent success some dont.

2. buy a f used transmission complete and install it but thats like cat in bag.
( plus why are u buying something soo big to replace something soo small -
plus not counting labour and cost of oil and if it doesnt work the amt lost in labour and oil and time in returning the part etc)

3. buy a new solenoid kit and that it. problem is its gonna hurt (your wallet)

yup shakes...its the same thing once is regular 4spd auto...... CVT is a different story... (different solenoids too )

OP before you go changing parts on just internet advice....

contact ryotech performance ( google him) let him come and scan the car do a drive test with it to pick up the error - once u confirm what is the exact issue you 'll know how to proceed.

dont take my word as gospel.
in my case i know my car and had it properly checked and i got it sorted out permanently.
