Question about 2002 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

2002 Maxima trans slips while at cruising speed. On interstate @ 50mph, then revs up to over 4k and won't down shift. Happens periodically, once had to kill engine. Otherwise, runs great 98%

2002 GLE, A/T 160,000 miles 24mpg normally runs great. Periodically, without any cause, the sunroof opens; 1st time we experience shifting issue was when one of these occurences happened. Makes me believe it may be electrical in nature.

Sounds like the revolution sensor. There are more than one if I read correctly on that Maxima and could cost about 800bux to fix.

SOURCE: my 1990 nissan maxima auto

There are three sensors on the transmission that tell the computer how fast your going so it knows to upshift, have someone check input sensor,output sensor,and speed sensor.

Have you been told to change the transmission fluid and filter? Read this first before you do some job: www.myhonestmechanic.com/articles/transmission_slipping.

Also could try to scanned the trans module, to know is some fault code is stored there.

keep us updated.

SOURCE: My 1999 nissan maxima 5 speed won't shift from 1st to second gear.

If it goes into other gears correctly, then the issue is likely a synchromesh problem with that particular gear, and the gearbox may have to be stripped.
You may try changing the gear oil first though, as this can often fix the issue without having to spend too much money on unnecessary repairs.

Sounds like it's bypassing the overdrive seals. This is the solenoid package. I would put some transmission additive in first, this reconditions the seals. TranX, Lucus are both good.

I have a 2002 Ford Escape. It ran perfectly until I took it for a car wash and it rained hard the next day. I then had rough idling, laboured acceleration and I threw a Code saying I was missing in 2 and...


I think someone gave you wrong information. You know what a rough idle and a misfire you just went through it. And you went through a emission test and passed. Here the thing about the emission test they do it 2 ways if you went on a dyno. The dyno loads the engine and pressurize the system. It looks for pressure failure,like sparkvoltage leaks,and like transmission pressure line and test its ability to maintain gear ratio at an approprate load. Then the dyno heats the vehicle now it looks for operating temperature and that all sensor are within fuel control and do not go out of range. Here the thing. 5000k and 4000k it takes that much to get it to cruising speed. and once there its okay. You are describing a transmission slip. And catalytic costing 4 thousand. From the dealer? If the catalytic are clog there is no way to get it to cruising speed , No youll loose power and the vehicle will keep slowing down. If the transmission is slipping it will slip in a variety of ways One way is what you described. It will 5000k and 4000k to get it to cruising speed then its okay. And not do highway speed , catalytic is about 1200. transmission are 4000k.Plus Ford tried to sue states that put the vehicle on dynos,due to the high trans failures(this is on going debate)

Loosing power at cruising speed


have you had the transmission flushed? it seems to be caught in a limbo. where the calibration of the speedo and the transmission are not compatable. Now as wierd as that seems it happens usally like when going up a hill if you have a manual trans. and cruise locked in. it cant hold that speed and moves to a different speed if you dont down shift. Or perhaps your cruise control cable is slipping. is it vacume over mechanical? pop the hood and make sure all your hoses to cruise control are tight and no leaks.
