Transmition "slipping"? 2000 frontier ext cab 12000m

2000 frontier ext cab 4x4. 12000 miles. Transmition is kind fo like going to a passing gear around 65-70 mph then dropping a gear then going to a "neutral" untill i let off the gas then it will catch a gear and i can accelerate for a short period of time before doing it again. It seems to get worse the longer i drive. I am kinda stuck with 300 miles left on my journey and unsure what to do. Thank you.

Kenny

Dear Kenny,
Unfortunately, you will need to get to a transmission shop a.s.a.p,
because there is a good possibility you "tranny" is about to "go out".
Be sure to carefully check the transmission fluid level right now.
If you have only 300 to go, perhaps you might rent a car to finish your trip whilst someone fixes the problem.
God bless your efforts.

SOURCE: 2000 NISSAN SENTRA , SEEMS TO BE STUCK IN A GEAR

Sounds like a bad overdrive clutch, it's in the torque converter and is not repairable, you have to replace the torque converter, this is somewhat common on high mileage automatics, usualy it sticks locked, when you put it in gear it makes a clang and unlocks, but locks up as you drive and won't unlock when you slow down like it's supposed to

sounds like this one simply will not go into gear at all, either the clutch is worn out (They're vry small snd weak) or possibly a sticking valve body.

this needs to go to the dealership garage, NEVER go to Mr Transmission type places they'll want to overhaul it whatever's wrong, they don't waste time on diagnosis

SOURCE: how do i fix a 0446 code on a 2000 nissan

The evaporative emission control system checks to make sure there are no leaks in the lines that run from the gas tank to the charcoal canister and up to the engine. It also checks to make sure the gas cap is sealing correctly.
When you fill your car with gas, the vapors in the tank get forced into a canister filled with activated charcoal. Also, on a hot day as the gas heats up and vaporizes, those same vapors push into the canister where they're stored. But the charcoal can only hold so much vapor. At some point it has to be emptied. The emptying process is called "canister purge." Here's how it works.
The computer orders a canister purge by powering open a purge solenoid. That opens the vacuum line between the canister and the intake manifold. At the same time, it opens a VENT solenoid. That allows fresh air into the canister. So the engine is literally sucking out the gas vapors and purging the canister with fresh air. The computer has to adapt its fuel strategy to take advantage of all the extra gas vapors coming into the engine.
The computer notices the canister is empty when it detects a leaner condition (all the vapors are used up) and it resumes normal fuel delivery. Some car manufacturers then close the VENT solenoid but leave the PURGE solenoid open. That creates a vacuum throughout the entire fuel storage system. Once the correct vacuum is reached, it closed the PURGE solenoid and waits to see if the vacuum holds. If it doesn, the system passes the test. If it detects a leak, it sets a code.
The computer also watches the electrical activity during the testing process. When the computer operates the solenoids, it sees a voltage drop on the line. If it doesn't see a voltage drop, it knows there's a problem with the electrical--either the wiring is broken, or the solenoid isn't working. In this partcular code P0446, the computer has detected an electrical problem with the VENT solenoid.

If it's an automatic it means the clutches inside the transmition are slipping. Sometimes you can change the trans. oil and filter and save the trany, but more times than not, by the time you hear it slipping (or reving) it's too late to save the transmition.

My is shifting from 2 to drive back to 2 why is it doning that


Check your tranny fluid levels- if they are low your transmition will slip between gears, however if you notice any kind of free reving while its shifting (like being reved up when in park or neutral) then the hydrostatic clutches are slipping and the transmition needs repair.

Another thing you should investigate is your transmition kick down bar (it shifts the trany into a lower gear when accelerating hard to help pick up speed.

Even when warmed up and driving my 2003 Nissan Altima changes gears pretty hard.


You need a transmission flush through the radiator and transmission
a new tranny filter and clean the pan.If this still happens then your transmition is slipping gears because of shaved gears this is noticable
when there is lots of metal particles or chunks.If this occours than i suggest a rebuild or used transmition.

The first run of the day when i am accelerating there is a popping/clicking sound from the tranny meets engine area.When i push the gas it does this and when i let off it stops.when i push the gas and it...


Depending on how many miles or if the truck is lifted the U joints or center support bearing behind the transmition or transfer case go out. This would be identified by a twisting or bad vibration in the area of the shifter. look to see if the shifter moves to the right or left a lot when starting out. This kind of action would diminish with speed. Be sure to check the fluid level of the transmition and gear box. Low fluid levels can destroy gears fast. If shifting becomes difficult or the gear makes a lot of noise this may be the problem (usualy with manual transmitions).

Transmition


Doubtful, unless the unit is low on oil. slipping is caused by low pressure which burns internal clutches etc and can only be cured by replacing them. They are very thin and don't put up with much abuse.
