Question about 2003 Nissan Maxima
We have a 2003 Nissan Maxima SE Titanium Edition. It has acquired a transmission problem. This only occurs when it is near 100 degrees outside and the AC is on. I am assuming that it is heat related. I think it may just be a sensor. Anyway, here is the problem. After driving for a while and then coming to a stop or near stop, it does not want to shift gears or gets hung and just revs when you press on the throttle. It wont go. After a short period of time everthing is usually back to normal. Sometimes I have to completely stop and then manually shift it through the gears to make it work. Does anyone know what might cause this? I would appreciate any input.
Electronic throttle assembly failure, which has throttle position sensor built into it, that is a sensor for the transmission and tells the computer where the throttle is to adjust/shift if needed. I would look into the throttle assembly.

I have the same car. First transmission went at 29,200 miles. No Reverse, rev the heck out of it to get it to move forward. Nissan replaced it with a new one in Feb 2005. Two weeks ago the same thing happened again with 72,500 miles. This time they won't change it because I have my car serviced locally and not at the dealership (and I don't keep many of my oil change receipts but I had them from this past year). Take the valve cover off, it's clean as hell! And what does oil changes have to do with the transmission. How about saying you didn't do the recommended transmission flush. Well that's because I never made the mileage on either one. Anyway NISSAN USA has been no help, the dealership (Newburgh Nissan) on the otherhand is at least trying to work with me. So bring it in and plug it in to see what code it's spitting out. I could be the start of something very expensive!
