Interesting on the part numbers. The prototype that Racingline was working on wasnt a shifter... it was a piece that bolts to the outside of the transmission case. I am not 100% sure how cable shifters work on fwd cars because I have never owned one until now. I am use to the shift rods that all you change is the pivot point of the shifter itself.
Here is a picture of Racingline's prototype - It doesnt look like its very complicated to make... I dont understand what the hold up is after all this time.
A true short shifter changes mechanical linkage between the shifter and transmission to speed up shifts, the external levers get shorter. Can't do it on cable shifters or trans with internal linkage like most are now.
Actually you can on shifter but the design cost of doing it is why you won't find one on a Versa, the cost is too high to make it worth it, you'll never sell them all.
A shorter STICK makes shifts faster but the stick shortened means increased force needed as you have lost leverage there, what length does.
I used to do all that stuff many many years ago on drag cars.
I am trying to under stand how to do preventive maintenance on a Nissan CVT. What I am trying to understand is
1. What is the most common cause of Nissan CVT failure? Is it too much load (like towing a heavy trailer)? Is it due to driving habit like constantly accelerating causing wear? Is it a...
Nissan Versa 1.6L 2011 Sedan - 50,000miles
New here but, I figured the people that might have the best idea about whats going on would be other Versa drivers.
This has popped up a few times in the past month. I guess Ill tick off what I have done and maybe someone could help me with...
The last 2 days I’ve been doing standard maintenance on my 2015 verse note. Did plugs and coil overs, and a oil change. After the plugs and coil over job was done I had a check engine light on. And after the oil change was dumping white smoke that smelt like water out the exhaust. Normally I...
So I was driving down the street the other day, nothing abnormal about where I was, the temperature outside, or anything and my car just...stopped. I was able to pull off the road but I was unable to get the car to keep running after that. It would start, then die after a few sputters. I got...
What is the size for the fuel injectors for the MR18 Versa Engine? Is there a difference between the MR20 injectors or are they the same?
Would a standard Nissan injector, say from the VQ engine series be compatible with the connector/harness?
Disclaimer: I am looking into NA mods between MR18...
