obviously refers to auto trans , could just need the trans fluid level topping up or even changing , if this does'nt resolve the problem then a more in depth diagnosis would be required at a repair shop as could be the ECU for example but do the fluid checks and go from ther ,keep me posted

Why doesnt my nissan altima shift


Im assuming you mean that the vehicle wont move when put it in gear and its an automatic! Check the transmission fluid level if it is ok check if vehicle will move in any other gear reverse 1 or L etc. If not it maybe a torque converter issue and maybe best for a transmission shop to sort

Code p0734 I just replaced eng. and trans. now have this code.


Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Incorrect transmission shifting Possible causes - Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Shift solenoids
- Transmission mechanical problems
- Transmission hydraulic control circuit Tech notes Start by inspecting the transmission fluid level and condition, and change fluid if necessary. When is the code detected? P0734 is detected when A/T cannot be shifted to the 4th gear position even if electrical circuit is good. P0734 NISSAN Description This diagnosis monitors actual gear position by checking the torque converter slip ratio calculated by Transmission Control Module (TCM) as follows:

Torque converter slip ratio = A x C/B

A: Output shaft revolution signal from revolution sensor
B: Engine speed signal from Engine Control Module (ECM)
C: Gear ratio determined as gear position which TCM supposes

If the actual gear position is higher than the position (4th) supposed by TCM, the slip ratio will be more than normal. In case the ratio exceeds the specified value, TCM judges this diagnosis malfunction.

Have a pan located at the front of my 1999 nissan altima on the right side underneath of the car that is leaking fluid. what is it? it has a hole in the bottom of the pan cause my wife ran over something.


If the fluid is red, it's automatic transmission fluid. If it's anything from honey-colored to black, it's engine oil.

Check both via the dipsticks if you can't visually identify the fluid. Depending on how long it's been leaking, it should be evidenced by a low level of one or the other.

My 1994 altima stars but dont move on drive or reverse ? please help


Start off by checking your transmission fluid level and making sure that it's up to par.If your automatic fluid level is to low it will not engage and build up enough pressure at all, resulting in no movement.However, if the fluid level is up to par then you more intensive issues, more than likely involving a rebuild of your trans.I hope I could help!!! Thanks for using Fixya!! rate me accordingly
