Gday
Friend of mine has a 2008 nissan navara 4 cyl 2.5 ltr turbo diesel. It sounds to me like it is stuck in two gears and locked up. Is this a common problem ?

So does the motor start when your foot is on the clutch?

Yes the motor does start because they have burn't the clutch as well trying to move the ute.

Hi Muzbry
Used to be a common problem with M20 and M21 Holden gear boxes. The selector gate got jammed between two slots. We used to remove the gear lever, put it back in one of the slots and all worked perfectly until the next time. Don't know how the selectors work in the Nissan.

That's what I thought it could be.The box will have to come out to do the clutch, but the insurance wont pay till the job is done, the Nissan people wont do the job till they get paid and the young bloke that owns the ute hasn't got the money, and around it goes.

The gearbox interlock detents must be worn to allow the two rails to move simultaneously and select two gears therefore locking the box.

They were unwise to burn the clutch cos, if it aint gunna moov then it aint gunna moov. Just rocking the vehicle may have detected the resistance.

Removing the stick should allow things to be freed but won't stop it happening again.
The detent pins are probably worn flat instead of being rounded. The box itself should be ok, just the selector interlock pins need attention.

Is the owner/driver a fast forceful shifter of gears? With a light touch this should never happen.

This all happened in a car wash , not by the fella that owns the ute.
