Question about 2004 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

When putting car in drive it hesitates before it goes into gear, sometimes it is quick, sometimes it takes forever in my 2004 Nissan Altima

It will eventually go into gear but hesitates quite often. Transmission fluid is full. Could it be the transmission filter?

Yes, but you can have similar problems on the outside of the transmission if your car uses cables to shift. If the cables are binding or dry they can bind in one direction and move freely in the other. Temperature can also affect the cable shift or internal transmission parts

Now sometimes internal transmission parts can bind or hang in place. Valve bodies could do it and sometimes electric solenoids could stick.

What I would do is disconnect the shift cable if your vehicle uses one. Some vehicles use electric wires with no mechanical cables. Then shift the cable or have a helper do it. Remember some lockouts will still require a foot on the brake pedal to allow a shift. If no binding is detected the problem is something else.

The next cheapest move is having the filter and fluid changed. Your manufacturer may have a recommended cleaner to add before the change.

There are a few tests which a technician can do with pressure guages. This will help diagnose a flow problem.

Please rate my info.

Speedometer failed when the cable is broken; if the gears wont egnage, its possible that you have any propblem in the Torque Converter or Solenoids. First try with mainenance and check fluids.
