Having problems with your 1997 Nissan Maxima ?
Delay in Auto shifting from 2nd to 3rd gear
\015 When you start moving, 1st and 2nd gear shifting is normal. The problem is when shifting to 3rd gear and that is when there is a few seconds delay and the rpm goes up before 3rd gear is engaged. After moving for a couple of kilometers and slowing and changing gears in between this delay in shifting to 3rd gear disappears. Seems like when it is heated up all seem normal. Leave the car for a couple of hours and then start to drive again the same thing all over again. Automatic Transmission Fluid and Filter have both been changed 2 months ago. \015\012 \015\012Some say it is the cable to the gearbox, some say it is the convertor and others say it needs a new gearbox. The car has done almost 240,000 kms and almost 13 years old. Regular serviced and maintained over the years. \015\012 \015\012What do you think?\015
Check your ignition coils. One of mine was bad and when I replaced it, the shifting issue stopped.
