Question about 2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8
Transmissions will not engage reverse or any drive gears. I can select the gear with the shift but the engine only revs with no movement of the car. There is no wine or other noise from the transmission. Fluid looks normal.
Bummer,has to be an internal trans . problem,snapped the input shaft or something,however,should make sure it's not an axle. That should make noise tho,but check anyway,like put it in reverse and set the brake and just look under the front and make sure one axle isn't spinning.

SOURCE: no reverse gear - auto trans
I have the same problem on my 96 Pathfinder. I just spoke with a mechanic who said this is most often due to a knicked seal in the rear part of the transmission. The leak results in pressure loss, making the system reluctant to shift into reverse. He said the fix is replacing the seal. The part lists at approx $200 Canadian ($190 USD), but unfortunately it takes lots of labor. The whole transmission needs to be removed and taken apart to replace the seal. The total bill is esitmated at $1500 Canadian. Youch. I'm not sure if I'll proceed with the repair, given the age of the vehicle.

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
