I have an automatic 1995 nissan quest and sometimes it doesn't recognize whether it's in park or reverse, or drive. I have to put it up and down a few times to make it catch. i did find a bolt on the floor that fell out of the steering column. Any idea of how to fix this ? i looked and didnt find any diagrams, any help would be much appreciated. thanks

Sounds like the cable adjustment is loose or damaged. Most of them are located on the top or side of the transmission (where the linkage is). I could be also be something come loose in the column too, but I would check linkage adjuster first.

If you found the bolt on the floor, chances are the problem is under the dash at the column.

HT has it right. Those columns are just like the Ford F series, Mercury GrandFarties, and the Crown Fits.

The shift tube bushings wear out and the bracket bolts at the shifter cable come loose and fall out causing the whole shifter assembly to become rickety. The shift indicator cable adjuster mounting boss snapping off is a common problem too.

Hello Discrete - You are absolutely correct as far as my shifting linkage is concerned.
Where can I get a new bushing? I checked with Nissan and they say that it is discontinued!
This is for a 1994 nissan Quest.
Thanks!

If you go to your local parts store and tell them you have a 95 Mercury Villager and need a couple shift tube bushings, they should be able to find them for you.

Dorman part number 905107


Going to close this thread due to age.
