Hey Scotty- PLEASE HELP! I'm watching live (I think) -TRANS WHIRRING not Whining in reverse.
I love your channel and personality!
Here's the deal- bought a 2004 Nissan Armada. 2WD.
The thing started acting crazy around 50 mph and I thought it was the transmission, so I drained as much as I could and replaced as much as I could with Global synthetic as recommended by the guy at OReilley who works there part time but his full time job is as a tech at the Nissan dealership.
I did not completely flush it. He said just to drive it a couple hundred miles then drain as much as I could and replace it again. Also recommended that I put some Lucas Trans Fix in there, which I did.
Nothing changed so I took it to a local well respected transmission place. He checked it out and said nothing was wrong with it.
Turns out what was making it shudder was the #8 cylinder misfiring. So, I did all new plugs (iridium) and a new coil on #8. Voila, fixed.
BUT NOW about 1000 miles later the transmission is slow to go into reverse. It whirrs when you put it in reverse. Not whines, just Whirrs. Then eventually it will go in reverse. I did not replace the filter btw.
Is it possible that it's just the mix of different fluids?
I really need the help right now. Thank you very much in advance for your help!
