What kind or brand of automatic transmission fluid i should use in 2002 nissan sentra

Just standard ATF, Not type F. Actually I have heard you can use any Tranny fluid in Non Ford models but can only use Type F fluid in Ford model vehicles. I used to use type F in my MOPAR with Performance engine and Tranny with no problems. But if you are worried then use ATF or ATF+4 fluid and you should be fine.

I was backing out of my driveway when i heard a loud pop like sound, my car wouldnt move after that. it didnt start pouring transmission fluid or anything it just makes kind of a whining/grinding like...

Sounds like one of the CV axles broke and it is trying to spin inside the joint. Only fix for that is to buy a new CV axle. Most auto parts stores should carry them. The part is about $50-80 and should take about 30mins-1hr for most people with the proper tools.

As you will only get part of the fluid out We would use the exact correct fluid and not an aftermarket brand.

RECOMEND: Sight unseen.
Stick with k-matic for the 5-speed automatic.

Hope this tip helps.
