I'm working on a Nissan Quest with automatic sliding doors. The door on the passenger side won't shut all the way when closing automatically. It shuts and then backs up very slightly. You can hear the motor running for a few seconds afterwards. It doesn't open all the way. It's basically like any other (non sliding) door that doesn't get slammed shut hard enough. It's closed enough to be locked, but you have to kind of bump it with your ass to close it the rest of the way.

Nothing seems to be blocking it, as I can easily shut the door manually. I have greased/oiled all of the railings and pivots to no effect.

Any idea what might be causing the issue?

Muffler bearings are brand new, the blinker fluid is at the optimal level, and the antifreeze is fresh and delicious.

I was going to flip you shit for driving a minivan, but after that line, good luck!

It's not mine. I feel bad even touching it. (I feel worse for thinking that it's actually a pretty nice ride.)

It sounds like it could be the motor. I had a similar issue with electric windows and my parents had issues with a minivan door back in the early 90's.

Yep, motor has play in it from wear or where the gears meet the track has been worn down. Won't be cheap unless there's a way to adjust the track.
Either way, off to the dealership for Joo!

I think he forgot to check for aids in the antifreeze.

I would say this is a good assumption

Did you check the flux capacitor? It needs to be running at 1.21 jigawatts.
