2005 maxima shifts hard and revs high before slamming in gear

The transmission slaams into gear, then before shifting into 3rd it will rev real high before going in gear. tranny fluid is full and I also put lucas in it. could it be the shifting solenoid or is the tranny going.

SOURCE: Tranny wont shift into third gear.

you have to pull down the oil pan of the tranny. then take out the strainer inside attached to the tranny. dirt is clogging it making the sometimes shift and other not.

SOURCE: Transmission slipping

My maxima uses only Matic K fluid. & I think another dealer put the wrong one druing service but no way to prove it. But it's 100% your transmission. I've been complaing since i got my maxima in 05 brand new. within 5000 miles I was complaing its transmission. Now today I have 52000miles now they admit something is wrong Luckly i was under warranty. I've been informed by former mechanics if once dealer does not find anything the 1st time they call all the local dealers & give eachother a heads up no to waste time on that specific car.I had to push the service advisor to go for a test drive to prove my car was having problem.
Good luck man

After checking the easy stuff first like low oil level, if it is high RPM(revs) & shifts hard(lurch when it does shift) then I am thinking the transmission filter & oil need to be changed. The transmission filter acts as a suction screen on an automatic transmission & as it collects contaminants to protect the inner workings of the transmission, it becomes plugged which greatly affects the ability to shift especially the high gears at faster acceleration.

It winds up in 1st and then shifts right from 1st into 3rd. Then never shifts into 4th. Plus rev is gone. You broke the sun shell. The transmission will need to rebuilt or replaced.

Need a new or rebuilt tranny for my 2005 maxima sl


Why do you need a new transmission? What was it doing. Becareful in working with a dealership. One of the most common problems is that of hard shifting or the engining reving inbetween gears then slamming into gear. This is a problem with the valve body that shifts the gears. If you get this fixed soon and are careful driving it to a good transmission shop, you will not need a full transmission. The valve body, fulid and gaskets must be replaced. This will run $1500-$1800 not $3500
This is a known defect withthe transmission that has not been recalled. Report this to NHTSA as a safety related issue.

WHEN DRIVING AND THE TRANS NEEDS TO SHIFT ON MY 2005 VW JETTA 2.5-5 NEW STYLE THE RPM'S REV UP BRIEFLY THEN THE TRANS WILL SHIFT THE SHIFTING IS SMOOTH BUT THE HIGH RPMS WORRY ME.


when vw started to use the computer controlled gearbox system a criticism was the shift was very harsh,to counter this they made it rev slightly before changing.so that you know the system, try this out....without touching the gas.....put it in d and let the car accelerate to its max speed,stop,then use 1/3rd of gas (keep your foot still)and let it do the same...stop,then,if safe,put your foot to the floor,hard, notice when the car changes gear(revs/speed)then if you drive,only using the first1/3rd of the gas,the cars change pattern will alter to suit.......wierd it is.....

You could have a bad valvebody in your transmission or a bad pump in your transmission or your clutches are bad. In any case you have a bad transmission. Please rate my answer.
