AUTOMATIC, HARD SHIFT FROM 1ST TO 2ND GEAR

Asked by Nov 12, 2011 at 07:53 PM about the 1994 Nissan 300ZX 2 Dr STD Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just bought a 1994 NA automatic with only 67,000 miles.  Love the car.  It runs great but it shifts a little hard from first to  second gear. I have read its not the tranny but I need to loosen the throttle cable ?? Thanks guys ....Roger

My 91 does as well. The previous owner had the trans rebuilt with a shift kit. It's possable that yours was rebuilt & the shift points changed or has a aftermarket kit in it...

That is what my mechanic suggested as well. Thanks for the tip !!
