The maf could possibly cause it but I would suggest you change the transmisson oil and filter, this is the most overlooked under serviced item anywhere.

Nissan altima 2005 not shifting or showing speed

The speed sensor is probably disconnected or the wiring was damaged. The CPU needs this input to demand shifts.

Maf sensor

was it a new maf fitted or a referbed unit
most new mafs sold only have a 6 month warranty

are there any other fault codes present or just the maf fault code

I agree with you a fault in the maf can make the car behave that way
the maf has a few functions with sensors in the unit

other sensors can also cause the engine to behave that way
02 sensor / faulty transmission solenoids and TPS

different car maker
i have just done a diode jump at the ECU
bypassing a faulty sensor in a maf
so far maf throws a fault code but no more problems

Car shifts a little hard from 1st to 2nd. And while driving if I let off on the gas the car jerks some and when you step on it again. Had flushed 8,000 miles ago at 70,000.

does it **** you back into the seat or it a **** you feel in the car? if it's that you feel then i think it's a broken motor or transmission mount

1995 altima wont go in gear

Hi. the first issue may be a clogged filter on the transmission. i would check the filter to see if its dirty or needs to be changed. The next problem that may be causing the shift issues could be the speed shift solenoids. if these devices are malfunctioning, they can cause the transmission to not shift correctly. i suspect a bad or dead shift solenoid. they are located inside of the transmission pan. If you pull the transmission pan and you see a lot of dirt and metal pieces on the bottom of the pan, you may need to rebuild this transmission soon.

please rate and god bless.

2003 nissan altima 2.5s transmission rough shift

Probably sensors! I have already replaced the crankshaft positioning sensor once, nissan replaced it once under recall and now it is bad again! Plus my speed sensor is bad too! Go to any part store and get diagnostic test ran, it will tell what sensors are bad.
