Your computer in the car needs to be reset anytime your trans fluid is emptied or runs very low.

See if you have a leak in any of your coolant tubes. If no leaks, you may have a bad thermostat that is stuck closed and needs to be replaced asap.

There must be fault in EC unit or sensor paired to engine. for this you have to go to an authorized service center.

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.

Nissan Maxima 2000 - 5 speed will not go into gear and the clutch gets stuck once pressed in. Is this strictly a clutch problem or could be a transmission problem also.

Sounds like your clutch slave cylinder is bad. It's only a minor, external problem, not an internal transmission problem.

The RPM goes up but the MPH picks up slow?

If the car is a stick shift that usually means your clutch is slipping. If it is an automatic it is a transmission problem. Sometimes on an auto a good transmission flush (done by a shop) will help out.
