Is the check engine lite on? If it is have the vehicle scanned for codes. Sounds like the Transmission control module not responding to anything.

A CVT is just that, continuous. You will not feel the familiar gear change. They need maintenance just like conventional ones. Fluid changes etc. Is your Compass throwing codes? If so see a qualified repair source. Continuously variable transmission

Well if indeed you have a CVT then you don't really have gears to shift to per-se, but clearly there is something wrong with the system. If you're not mechanically inclined go to the dealer. Regular mechanics will have difficulty with uncommon systems like CVT's

Car jerks when in motin

yes, that is normal. that car has what is called CVT trans. infinite gear ratios. does not shift. what you feeling is the trans issue. a lot of people have issues/don't like it, but nothing to worry about. plus Nissan extended their warrantee on CVT trans to 120000 miles. so don't worry about it, unless you have that already.

My honda civic 98 hx m4va transmition type,the trans drives fine exept when gearing up I can't feel when shifting and rpms goes up and down,I replace the transmition and still doing the same, also when...

I have a 1998 Civic HX 2DR as well and mine also takes a moment to engage when you press the gas. I don't know if this is normal or not? I just bought the car and I need to replace the trans fluid only because I don’t know if there is Honda oil or another brand in it. The CVT transmissions only can use Honda's CVT oil. There is a recommend alternative oil but based on the manual it’s only for temporary use until you can replace it with the Honda oil otherwise it will cause damage to the transmission over time.

2002 Mini S: Screeching sound when shifting to first gear

Sounds like the first gear syncro is going out you could have the trans rebuilt or the most expensive route is to replace the trans all together.

At higher speed the car refuses to shift to the next gear. Cannot move faster. DTC code indicates "Transmission Ration Control Motor" What do I do?

Murano doesn't shift. It has a CVT trans. (continuesly variable transmission). no shifting involved. I think that you have an internal failure, which would mean replacement of the unit. No rebuild parts available from Nissan. Whole unit only.
