Hi, I have a navara d40 with auto gearbox. It is in limp mode (3rd gear) so exceleratas very slowly from a stationary position, I have had three gearbox specialists look at it and all done diagnostic tests with the results being solenoid faults, four in total I think. All three have said that it needs a new mecatronic or a replacement gearbox and would be around £2500 - £3000 to supply and fit, on top of this the gearbox computer would need programming to be synced to the engine computer (or the other way round possibly,) this would incur another large sum to do but only Nissan are able to do it but will not as they don't do this on secondhand or refurbished parts as they cannot guarantee it will last. Nissan will not sell the replacement solenoid as the beichles are being returned later with faults relating to the mecatronic. The car is in very good condition and has been serviced regularly bit it seems the cost of the repair is more than the cars value, I've been told it is only good as spares parts if I was to sell. Please help as I am at a loss of what to do. Paul.
What you have been told is true, your only other option wold be to try having a second hand gearbox fitted but that could be money wasted. Hugh from City of Glasgow

nissan navara 2.5D starting but not picking up its revs, it would respond late but only end at 2rmp
Check the fuel filter is clear of detritus, same with the air filter. Check for any stored fault codes in case the engine has gone into limp mode. Mick from Portugal

I can't drive the car at the moment because I'm scared I might course more harm.

Ok engine management light came on Glow plug relay fault So far I've replaced glow plugs (twice) New battery new glow plug relay I reset the fault engine management light goes I can then sit and test this all day engine on no fault (glow plugs always go off after 10seconds) But once I start driving the vehicle the light will come on after a few days Helllllllp It's no prob starting and runs great just can't keep the engine management light off
My engine just stops, it has done it over 100 times since Wednesday 3rd Aug. just after full services carry out on the car. It stops when engine is cold and when I'm driving or slowing down when the engine will just stops. Obviously no acceleration and the lights coming on is a big clue. If I turn the engine off and start it again, it starts no problem and carries on. I need help please. Francis from Greater London
