4L80e drops out of overdrive

It\'s electrical. Had the same issue with my wrecker several years ago and the tranny shop got a fix (after a lot of tinkering/troubleshooting) by repairing/replacing wiring in the main harness to the tranny. I think it was a replacement of the main connector and attaching wires. Have recently started to have it happen again and I have the tranny guy trying to remember the exact sequence of events and the fix. If someone jumps right to "needs to be rebuilt", run; unless it has a lot of miles it doesn\'t\' need a rebuild.

I have a 2002 Nissan Maxima with 120,000 miles. The engine hesitates from a stand still but drives ok when on the highway. It also feels like its surging slightly. There are no codes and the tranny shifts...

When the accelerator is depressed in any car, there is always a mechanism there to enrichen the mixture to maintain the fuel to air ratio. On your car. it will be a MAP(Manifold Air Pressure) sensor in conjunction with the TPS (throtle position sensor). One of these could be the problem. Be sure the air filter is clean as well.

Throtle Body?

It takes 7 minute to recharge a battery from a standard start(about 3 seconds) if you are cranking longer than that then yes the wear is occuring to the starter,alternator and battery.
It could be a throttle body leaking or a fuel pressure regulator.

Two symptoms here Keith, and I just had this, same car year and model. The pedal could either be a bit loose, check the cable and throtle. Have someone check, when the cars in neutral,they manually rev it, and watch the RPM's. They should go 3-4 as normal. If this is the case, and its not the cable or pedal, REPLACE spark plug cables and wires. Odd, but that was the fix to mine. Hope it helps.
