Any information that is sent from the transmissions to the computer is an electrical component. If you will take your vehicle to an autoparts store and have them pull the codes and let me know what they are I could help alot more

    350z 2004 a/t with 120k miles 3 days ago my car overheated but reached just half of the temp gauge and i stopped the car and by the time it went back to normal i turned off the engine to cool down....


    I don't think overheating of the engine has much to do with the transmission, either automatic or manual. If you have an automatic transmission, did you check the fluid? Sometimes low fluid stops certain gears from changing, as the torque converter doesn't have enough fluid to pressurize the servos to engage the clutches.

    First off , did you check fluid level ? any lights lit on the instrument cluster, check engine ? How many miles on It ? Ever change the fluid an filter ? can you manually shift through the gears.
    DEFINITION: The transmission only provides first and second gear in Drive range. The shift pattern as the vehicle accelerates from a stop is 1-2-2-1. First gear ratio is 2.921:1 and second gear ratio is 1.568:1.

    For car not changing gears it can be shifter assembly issue, or it can also be transmission issue. Get the shifter assembly inspected with ignition OFF.

    Sounds like you might have serious internal transmission problems.

    As soon as you can, get someone with a code reader to plug in the vehicle and find out what the code is for the Check Engine light to come on. Might give you a better picture of what`s going on.

    It could also (cross your fingers) be something more usual like a clogged transmission filter (located inside the pan), or shift solenoid.

    By the way, have you checked the level, look & smell of your transmission fluid?

    Level should be checked with the vehicle running, after passing it in all gear ranges on the shifter, and putting it back in park (Check it on "cold" or "hot" level depending on if it`s been driving for a while or not).

    As for look and smell, it should be reddish and not smell burnt. Hard to describe the smell of burnt transmission fluid, but normal fluid does not smell too strongly, kind of sweet. Burnt oil is usually black and has a strong odor. If the oil is burnt you have internal damage to the transmission.

    One piece of advice I give you is get it fixed as soon as possible because if you don`t already have serious internal transmission problems, the longer you wait, the more chances you have of getting some, to the point of the vehicle just refusing to move. And believe me, speaking from experience, the transition point from the symptoms you describe to total refusal to move and the need for a tow/transmission rebuild is not that long usually.
