2001 Nissan Altima GXE 4 Cyl 2.4L

Transmissions & Drivetrains

Why does it feel like my gears are slipping ? This happens after the car has been sitting for a while.

It normally goes away after driving around and not having to stop. It goes into like an idling or neutral gear without me putting it there for a few seconds and then drives.

are you located in wichita ks. usually when a transmission acts like that your tranny fluid is low or it might be time to get it serviced because after so many miles on fluids and filter it starts getting dirty and thin which causes fluid to turn a darker red color . then again with the newer vehicles they have tons of different sencors and mecunisums which will defect and send codes to the computer which will tell computer "the main brain of vehicles" to not do and act different ways
