Hi,

I’m new here and honestly should have joined years ago. I’m seeking advice for my V. I have a 2010 V hatchback non-cvt automatic and I’m having a problem with it shifting into 4th gear. I’ve had this car since 2012 and drove it to 185,000 miles and then the motor blew. I bought a used motor (Japanese pull-out about 60K miles or less) and after swapping the busted motor for the used motor I can’t shift into 4th gear. The team was fine before the motor blew, what could it be now?

I did a fluid flush on the trans and made sure there is enough fluid. I made sure OD is on (the OD OFF light is not on) Any advice?

I can't seem to find any written information regarding the operation of the overdrive circuit being related to the temperature of the engine. I know with my wife's 2009 versa sedan, in the winter, the overdrive will not engage when the engine if first started cold. After the engine has been running for about 3-5 minutes, and the temperature has risen a little, the overdrive will kick in and work from that point on with no problem. If the engine is stopped, and restarted a short time later, the overdrive will operate normally immediately without any delay.

Fluid temperature sensor in the trans pan. OD will not shift until closed loop or engine warmed up.

With the OP scenario I would be looking at the work done, the wiring harness may have faulted moving trans around.

The OD light MUST come ON too to show the circuit is working.
