Nissan RE4FO4A

3-2 Shift Concerns

Complaint:

The 3-2 downshift is drawn out and the 1-2 upshift is of poor quality. This complaint can occur before or after overhaul. There is an orifice cup plug in the bottom of the 2-4 servo. Behind this cup plug is the servo-release pres- sure-metering exhaust valve (refer to Figure 1). When this valve gets stuck, it causes the complaints mentioned.

Figure 2
If valve is free, oil should ooze out here when
air is applied through cup plug on other side.

Cause:

This “stem” valve is placed on the release side of the servo bore in the case. Its function is to provide a very small metered leak any time third- gear oil is present on the release side of the servo. This prevents the re- lease side of the servo from becom- ing air bound or hydraulically bound. When this circuit becomes restrict- ed, because of the valve getting stuck, air and residual oil oppose servo apply, causing the complaints mentioned. The 1-2 shift is affected, depending on how quickly the downshift to first gear occurs; the longer this downshift takes, the more opportunity there is for the trapped air/oil to dissipate.

Correction:

The best way to check the operation of this hy- draulic circuit is to fill the exhaust side of the valve passage through the release port over the pump (see Figure 2) and blow air through the orifice in the servo bore. The initial blast will push some fluid out, but maintain your air supply and watch for residual fluid to ooze out. As long as fluid oozes out, the valve is working as it should. If fluid stops oozing out, you will have to remove the cup plug and clean and dress the valve and valve bore. NOTE: Be sure the valve rattles after the case is removed from the cleaning machine, because residue from cleaning soap can cause the valve to stick.

Nissan/Infiniti DTC P1605 - A/T Diagnostic Comm Line Failure Complaint: An OBD-II-compliant Nissan or Infiniti

Nissan/Infiniti

DTC P1605 - A/T Diagnostic Comm Line Failure

Complaint:

An OBD-II-compliant Nissan or Infiniti vehicle comes in with a P1605 code stored in the engine- control module (ECM), indicating that the transmission-control mod- ule (TCM) is not sending informa- tion to the ECM, and the transmission is stuck in third gear. The TCM also may be incapable of code retrieval.

Cause:

The A/T diagnostic communi- cation-line circuit is an operating- strategy circuit from the TCM to the ECM. When this circuit fails, this code is stored in the ECM. This code also can be stored when the TCM loses power or is faulty, which is why the transmission is stuck in third gear, since this re- sults in both shift solenoids being

turned off. A weak battery also can cause this code to be set.

Correction:

To diagnose the P1605 code, verify the following:

(1) The A/T Diagnostic Comm Line wire has continuity between the TCM and ECM. (2) Check for power and ground at the TCM, and fuses, should text continues on page 30

The computer usually grounds the lamp circuit during the “key on” bulb check. If the lamp circuit does not have battery voltage, then the wire, bulb or power source may be at fault. (4) When the items in steps 1
