Car starts goes in gear but want move

check transmission fluid. There should be a dipstick under the hood only if it's automatic. If it's a standard, there is a lot more to checking fluid. If there is nothing showing on your dipstick add some through the dipstick tube. Never add fluid though while car is running in gear as it will take off on you when fluid reaches transmission. Add a liter, check again, then follow the proper way to check the fluid level. The proper way will be written on the dipstick itself. It may say check hot in park, or check in neutral, but never add it like that if there is nothing showing on the dipstick.Let me know how you make out

When i start my car (2004 nissan maxima) and put it in drive as i press the gas it feels as if it where on neutral, but it only happens sometimes what is wrong?

Check the transmission fluid level using the dipstick located under the hood and near the front of the transmission. The car should be at operating temperature, running and in nuetral. If the level is low ask the auto part store to sell you the correct type of fluid. It does matter.

97 maxima clutch is not engaging, car has had a transmission leak and i wonder if the fluid is low again, would this cause the clutch to lose pressure and not engage? i do not see a red dipstick to even...


fluid level would be the first thing to check.

not all cars have a dipstick on the transmission. some have a drain plug at the bottom of the transmission, and a fill/level plug about halfway up the side of the unit. you just take out the level plug and put fluid in until it starts to come back out of the hole.

if you are not sure, an auto specialist should check this for you very quickly, and a lot of them would not even charge just to check the level if it does not need any fluid.
