Its more than likely your shift solenoid they usually above your valve body after you take the pan off you will see an aluminum plat with alot of bolts and weird looking valleys thats the valve body take that off then go to a parts store and ask for a 2nd and 3rd upshift solenoid which ever one they give you take that one out and replace it the good thing is on dodge they are only around 80$ and anyone will tell you for a trans thats doin good but not sure for nissan also if you have any issues msg me back i will help how ever i can. also its almost always the upshift solenoid if it doesnt slip in gear

HEY WHATS UP BRO this is what you have to do i just got brand new headlight replacements for my 05 nissan altima and it looks great by the way if you replace one you should just do both becasue it will look weird. anyways i have an hid kit as well but so. what you have to do is remove the bumper take all the plastic screw things off the top and on the botton underneith the bumber then you remove 2 screws on each side of the bumper they are located kinda in the dender well then you unscrew those then you can pretty much pull the bumper off there are 4 screws holding on each headlight 2 on top one on the side and one on the bottom front in order to remove the headlight you have to take off the bumper. hope this helps oh ya and buy buy the way you should get an hid kit the bulbe size for the altima is an h1 bulb and you need to get the single beam buld. get it at and the the 6000k. The 6000k look the best and is the brightest trust me you wont be let down they are brighter and last longer than the standard halogen bulb um also and like 5 times brighter. they are 129$ at thats the cheapest price that i have seen and they are a great value and good quality just dont touch the bulb. oh ya if you replace one headlight do both it looks much better. maybe try this web site to show you a little bit of how to do it
hope this helps my email is let me know how it comes out

SOURCE: Where is the Speed Sensor located on a 2005 Nissan Altima?

An engine speed sensor is mounted on the vehicle’s crankshaft and is usually where the speedometer gets its data, whereas wheel speed sensors are located individually at each wheel or axle generating a signal that changes with wheel speed.
It is important that these two speed sensors are always in good working condition to provide accurate data. If one of them gives the wrong signal, control functions of the engine ECU and ABS ECU will be largely compromised. So to have a long-lasting speed sensor, cleaning it every now and then is necessary. Simply wipe off the grime it has accumulated with a towel. Or it’s okay to carefully blow-dry it with compressed air. Anyway, it does not need to be hospital-clean, it just needs to be free from major debris and metal media.
If this didn't do it for you call autozone and they can pull up pictures of it for you and it will show the location to the exact positioning.
Hope This Helps

SOURCE: location of speed sensor in alitma 2005 2.5

Boritz2: there are several speed sensors on this vehicle, so I will give you the locations of all of them due to the fact that I don't know which one you are seeking.
There are speed sensors located at each wheel to work with the ABS unit.
On the trans-axle, on the driver's side near the top of the transmission.
I hope this has been helpful to you.
Is there a reason you are looking for the speed sensor?

My 2002 Altima SL 2.5 drives and shifts fine for an hour or so. Then it won't shift from first gear.

In spite of what Firestone did it still sounds like you have a defective speed sensor. Other people have also had this problem and it was solved by replacing the speed sensor.

I hope it resolves your problem.

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.

Why doesnt my nissan altima shift

Im assuming you mean that the vehicle wont move when put it in gear and its an automatic! Check the transmission fluid level if it is ok check if vehicle will move in any other gear reverse 1 or L etc. If not it maybe a torque converter issue and maybe best for a transmission shop to sort
