Transmission play in 1st and 2nd gear


Hi

I have just bought a manual 2005 ST II. This is my 1st 4x4.

It has done about 110K km but I am a bit worried about the transmission. If I lift on and off the gas in 1st and second there seems to be a fair bit of play. Is this normal? I have also noticed the revs seem slow to drop when the clutch is depressed as I am changing up through the gear box.

It's all clean and I want to get it muddy.

Paul

Hi Paul,

We are going out this Sunday if you want to get dirty mate.

Check out this thread

Also, it'd be a great way to meet other Xtrailers.

Hope to catch up on Sunday, if not maybe some other time.

I would love to come but I am going down to surfers to see cheech and chong. I can't believe they are touring after all these years.

Please let me know when you are out and about again.

Thanks
Paul

Re: Transmission play in 1st and 2nd gear


I don't know about the play in the gear. Mine is complete opposite between 1st/2nd (seems to be very stiff and feels like a force is against it)

In regards to the REVs staying hih between gears, I get this too. If the Xtrail is drive-by-wire, the computer may be programmed to maintain revs for a second when the clutch pedal is depressed. If this is a design feature I'd imagine it's to make gear changes smoother by match engine revs (less wear on the clutch). Can anyone confirm this or is it an issue?

EDIT: On my own issue, I hope not to hijack the thread. My 1st to 2nd gear change feels like a force is pulling on the gear stick. If any of you have ever used a force-feedback joystick on a computer, it's something like that.

Re: Transmission play in 1st and 2nd gear


I have just spent a lot of time reviewing second hand X trails prior to my new purchase, and this issue of excessive 1st and 2nd gear play seems prevalent in many of those I drove. Some in cars with as low as 50K kms on the clock.

A common ingredient seems to be a towbar with fairly worn towball.

Question is: is this a problem in the gearbox, or in the engine mounts, or something else?
