Nissan 04 stopped and now has transmission problems
I was driving in a residential area when my 2004 Nissan Maxima shut down on me. It wouldn't start immediately, but after a few seconds, it did. However, the transmission was now not working correctly. It took forever for the gears to switch. It took awhile before i could even go 35 mph.
I'm beginning to hear that this is an (unfortunate) common problem with this vehicle. I need to know if anyone has any further information on this. Do I have to replace my whole tranny? I also need a manual for the transmission on 2004 Nissan Maxima

I can guarantee your car keeps cutting off because there is a problem with your crank sensor. I have a '04 maxima SE and the day I paid my car off it did the exact same thing, it cut off then cranked back up a short while later and when I took it to the dealer there was a problem with the crank sensor. You might wanna check that and get it replaced soon...it's cheaper if u dont do it at the dealer tho
I don't know exactly how the nissans work with their "limp" mode for what gear it goes into and such. This sounds like the computer is sensing a problem and going into the "limp" mode. Go get the code pulled to see what is says. If it has anything saying trans slipping or ratio problem then something internal in the the trans is wrong. Also, check the trans fluid and see if its burnt ( dark brown or black).
you could have a busted motor mount and or binding of the shift linkage, you could do some self diagnosis by putting the car up on stands and studing the underside area, check on the sides of the engine and up around where the shifter linkage for signs of abnormal wear (shiny metal areas). If you cant figure it out you might try to get ahold of the nissan dealership and ask to talk to a mechanic in the service department. They might be able to help. If all else fails call around for a reputable transmission shop in the area. Hopefully its minor, good luck
It sounds like a tork conveter lockup switch, have the transmisson serviced oil and filter changed then and add Lucas transmisson treatment to help smooth out hte shifting pattern and stop the problem if there was drag on the clutches it may have stalled out.
