I would check the transmission and engine mounts but also it may be time for a transmission fluid change. It has a service interval just like oil. 50000 miles

2001 Nissan Altima idling high in parking or neutral


I have the same problem with my harrier 3000cc car. We have changed the idling sensor, airflow sensor. air filter, we have had the throttle checked, spark plugs, wiring and nothing works. The smell you are getting could be from your gear box, have it checked out early and if the gear shift is noticeable then you will need a gearbox specialist to open it and change the clutch plates. Good luck.

I have a 1992 Honda Accord Ex I shift it to D4 the indicator light does not come on in the instrument panel and when I drive it all the gears change but not the very last one sometime the last gear change...


Look at 2 concerns...are you driving above 42 mph when you expect the shift into D4? Automatic overdrive transmissions will not shift into overdrive below that speed. Depending on your mileage, a transmission fluid change may be on your scheduled maintenance list...If over 100,000 miles and no record of previous service, you may want to use an additive instead of a fluid filter change. Sometimes on high mileage, problems occur after an attempt to catch up on ****** maintenance:( My best results have been to use the Lucas Oil Companies "Transmission stabilizer" additive. With a warm motor and transmission, you can add the full bottle of the additive without a need to drain the old fluid. This additive is designed to "refresh" the ****** fluid and filters...about $12. at your parts store. Also you may need to clean your throttle body and injectors by direct spray, and gas tank additive. These are the least costly attempts to address both problems. Hope this helps.

Car shifts hard (up & down), especially shifting to reverse.


that delayed reaction may be the transmission slipping. with those many miles it could be the transmission going bad

Transmission sometimes shifts hard into next gear.


Typiclly this is caused by a failing Pressure Control Solenoid. Now in some cases, since you are in the 1996 model year you may have a vacuum modulator that controls the shift firmness that can be replaced as it is externally mounted. I dont know how best to describe what it looks like, but look down on your transmission, on the front side facing the radiator and if you see a canister like device that has a vacuum line running to it, that is the vacuum modulator and you could start by replacing that and see if it helps.

If you do not have the vacuum modulator and have instead the electronically controlled version of your transmission then you will have a Pressure Control Solenoid and it, unfortunately, is located on the inside of the transmission and cannot be easily replaced without dropping the whole transmission.

The pressure control solenoid is a common issue with your transmission (4T65) and Im leaning more towards you have the electronically controlled version (4T65E).

2001 vw cabrio automatic transmission


I'm dealing with the same car. I just had the transmission completely overhauled. Very$$$. The mechanic told me that it's common for cabrio's to develop this problem between 80,000 and 100,000 miles, mine happened around 95,000 miles. Knowing what I know now, I would have sold it.
