Auto Tranny in Pathfinder won't go into

High gear.
It's a 89, Nissan V6, 4X4 up for sale.
That's the glitch for reasonable price they are asking, besides that it has 171,000 miles on it.
Haven't driven it, so I'm assuming it's OD is the "high gear" they are talking about?
Was wondering if they know something more and that's why its under $1000 for a 4X4.
Can anyone help me decide if it worth a look see/test drive.
Thanks

On a 4x4, "high gear" means normal gearing
Like, around town, highway, basically 99% of driving
Not the Rubicon stuff
So this vehicle, as it is now, is only good for tough off-road driving
It would stink for anything else

pathfinder trans

high gear is overdrive...it may mean the beginning of the end for that tranny. high mileage pathfinder transmissions are prone to failure and usually take out the planetary gears as they are weak in the lube circuit. they are expensive to repair, but are very repairable by a qualified builder...in my area...bank on $2500 for a quality job. used trannys are a huge gamble...if you can find one. it may be that whoever owns it has had the pan off of it and saw the telltale signs of impending failure...altho the price is fair and if you really want the truck, i'd call around and find out the going rate for a complete overhaul with torque convertor in your area and add that to the purchase price...and then beat the seller down some with that information.
