Transmission

Hey guy's, my mate tipped his car up on it's side last night. Its a skyline 1990, the square shape sedan. He was very lucky the car didn't keep going onto it's roof! The car was on it's side (drivers side down) for about an hour all up.. & the problem is when he got it on its wheel, the motor is running fine but when its put in drive/reverse, any gear it doesnt matter nothing happens, the engine doesnt drop any revs as if its in gear an it makes no noises! Also he said there was a heap of pink oil that'd leaked all over the side of the car, which i think would be transmission oil or power steering fluid...

But do you guys have any idea what would be wrong with the transmission, would no oil in it give those symptons?

Any ideas Great! Cheers guys.

I take it he didn't check the fluid levels once the car was the right way up?

Re: Transmission

assuming electronic gearbox, and needing fluid to make pressure, to actually drive in any gear, I would suspect no oil as well, check all the levels first before panic, and chances are the fluid was all in the wrong spots anyway and may have now settled to where it should be.

Re: Transmission

Iv been over there and checked, but it was late at night. The engine is fine oil level is perfect, but im not sure about the transmission, when i pull out the dipstick there is about 2mm of oil on the bottom, but the car is on a slight lean & im not sure if u need the engine running and tranny in drive while you check it?

Do u have any ideas, maybe the selector shaft (however that part works?) has broken & it's not putting the transmission in gear?

Re: Transmission

Just do like you would with a service, start the car, foot on brake, put it in reverse for 30 seconds, then neutral for 10 seconds, then 1st gear for 20 seconds, then 2nd 20 seconds, repeat all the way to drive, put back in park re-check fluid level, then try drive it
