You should go right away to a nissan dealership. Your Trans cooler may be mixing your coolant and transmission fluid. After time your transmission will start shifting hard or have a delayed shift. you could also drain some trans fluid out yourself and see if it looks like your coolant. It will look pink and possibly foamy.
You need to troubleshoot the transmission solenoid shifts.You are a OBD1. Feedback on the transmission.So in your case there will be no data to be read. This is not uncommon for the shift solenoid B to supply little oil When this happens Solenoid A does not shif to fourth. You basically have a shift solenoid that cannot hold pressure. A good remedy is change transmission filter and fluid. This can help.Other than that solenoid will be needed.
YOUR TRANSMISSION SOUND LIKE LOW IN TRANSMISSION FLUID. YOU HAVE A FACTORY SEAL TRANSMISSION IF SLIPPING SHIFTING HARD TRANSMISSION COULD HAVE FLUID LEAK. YOUR TRANSMISSION DONT HAVE OIL FILLER TUBE AND DIP STICK.THE VOLKSWAGON DEALERSHIP HAS TO USE EQUIPMENT TO ADD FLUID THROUGH TRANSMISSION FILLER PLUG ON UPPER SIDE TRANSMISSION PAN. IF TRANSMISSION FLUID HAS NEVER BEEN CHANGED LET DEALERSHIP CHANGE TRANSMISSION FLUID AND FILTER AND TRY TO LOCATE LEAK IF FLUID WAS LOW. ALSO MAKE SURE ENGINE FINE TUNED AND TRANSMISSION SHIFT CABLE ADJUSTMENT IS CORRECT.
They meant to say Shift Solenoid, Yes it's bad and yes it is expensive because it will take a transmission shop to replace it and they will want to rebuild the transmission. If this dealer did what I think they did they reset the fault codes while it was on the lot and after you drive the used car off the lot there was no warranty so be ready for a battle.
If you have recently changed you Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF), the wrong type of fluid may have been put in. Incorrect fluid will cause the transmission to shift poorly. Old or dirty transmission fluid can also cause issues with the designed operation . If you can not remember the last time you changed the ATF or have never changed the ATF, see if an ATF change fixes the issues you are experiencing. Consider having the transmission filter changed also. If you continue to have hard shifting after this there may be more serious problems developing that may have to be dealt with.
Check your transmission fluid level when the engine is running and the car is in 'park'. add extra appropriate fluid as necessary via the dipstick tube. When 'max' is reached I think you will notice a return to normal shift operation.
is the trand fluid full? has the trans fluid and filter been changed every 60,000 miles? if not service the trans and retest, many times a fluid and filter change cures this problem, if it doesn't u will need to have the transmission serviced completely
