No movement in any gear: pump failure, or total loss of fluid. R&R, or refill pan and find the leak. If out of fluid, avoid running the engine until the trans is refilled to avoid pump damage. To check for pump failure, check fluid level with the engine off, then start the engine and recheck fluid level. If level does not go down when engine is running, the pump is faulty.

The other issues also would be a bad boost valve and will need to be replaced. Inspect your transmission fluid and see what condition it's in and if you have a front pump issue.

Thank you for using fixya and good luck.

97 nissan 200sx 2.0, starts but stalls when I shift to forward. Also when in park and reeve the engine up it misses badly. Took distributor cap off and there was oil inside. Other times I can start it...

There should be no oil in the distributor. Replace it. Oil will cause the spark to go anywhere. Most likely to a ground. The distributor base.

While driving down the road i turned the heat on in the car,it a made loud rattling noise,i quickly turned the heat off. i got a mile down the road and the car shoot down and wouln't start anymore.

It could be the bearings in the motor or something could have fallen down the defroster vent and it rubbing on the fan . If the motor still works OK on all speeds i would remove it from under the hood its olny 4 or 5 small nuts and a couple of connecters and you could pull it out and reach your arm in side to see if there is something in there and if not you haven't lost ant time because the motor needs to be replaced and you can get one at a junk yard for 20.oo dollars and put it back on the job takes about 15 munites with one scoket or wrench

check the wires to the fuel pump if they have rubbed against something and the insulation wore through hitting bumps or rain could cause it to short and kick the relay and resets again and will start
