98 pathfinder AT only works in 4wd. Will not go into park unless 4wd is in N.

Asked by Jun 06, 2017 at 12:07 PM about the 1998 Nissan Pathfinder 4 Dr LE 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

If I attempt to put into Park there is a loud grinding noise. Engine must be off
for me to shift from N to 4wd or to place into park. Strange thing is that the
truck moves while in 4wd but only revs and does not even attempt to move in

4 wd linkage may have come off while in four wheel. wont allow you to shift back to 2 wd.
