94 Nissan Sentra automatic won't upshift

Hi,

I have a 1994 Nissan Sentra LE 1.6 liter with an automatic, 140k miles. The transmission suddenly will not shift out of low gear. Reverse works fine.

Shift linkage adjustment has been checked, and the filter and fluid were replaced. Nothing helped. There is no vacuum modulator line that I can see.

Is this an internal control problem on the tranny? Pricey to fix? This car is basically a piece of junk that is barely getting my daughter back and forth to work/college.

Thanks for any help!

Tim

It would most likely be less expensive to buy another piece of "junk" to replace it.You have tranny problems and if you don't have a sticking detent cable or linkage it won't be cheap.
