By mistake I replace the automatic transmission oil strainer of my 2002 nissan sentra. I can not put back 1 of the 12 numbers of bolts ( I think its called Reamer bolt). Do you think that this will affect the performance of the transmision. it seems that the nut for this bolt was push up because I can not tighten it.

auto transmissions are real sensitive to oil and flow issues. Not knowing your make, year, and service history, I will make the following suggestion. Have your transmission serviced with a Flush, filter change, and new oils. This should fix any flow issues that can cause this problem. If still an issue after that, you will need to have it serviced or it will fail in the long run.
NOTE: service facilities such as Oil & Go, have this flushing service available at a flat rate charge and I would use this type service rather than a transmission shop....but that is your choice .... hope this helps...
15w-30 engine oil and ATF transmission oil probably an atf -4 oil ring any automatic transmission shop for the oil specs make sure that it is a genuine automatic transmission and not a cv transmission ( constant velocity )transmission as using ATF oil will destroy the belt and the transmission
Make sure that the outer cable cover is not pinched ,and try taking the inner speedo ,cable out and lube it with a light oil (e.g )automatic transmission fluid,you may have to undo the speedo cable from both end 's to do this. oil,the inner part and reassemble.
first i would check the transmission oil, do this by starting the engine and leave it running, select all the gears (park, Reverse, neutral etc) then put it back to neutral, leave engine running then locate the transmission dipstick in the engine bay, remove and wipe the dipstick, replace then pull out again, if the oil is showing between the cold and hot marks then level is ok. I shoing lower or none, top up the oil level with automatic tansmission oil, keep rechecking the oil level as adding oil as to ensure it is not over full. will need to select all gears again before checking oil level again.
If the oil level is correct than quite likley a Transmission failure will require mechanic.
