    What would cause automatic transmission to slip?
    The only time is happens is between 55-65mph. It's just like driving and pushing clutch in until it partially disengages except it's an auto. Fluid level is ok and was going to get trans flushed but they suggested not doing that yet and take it to trans shop.

      Sounds like you were given good advise. There are many additives that claim to stop slipping if you wanted to try them first although you will need to pump out a bit of fluid to make room so you don't overfill and possibly blow a seal.

    Why does my car jump
    When I am sitting still at a red light or something; my car will start jumping front to back, but when you go it stops, and when you put it in between gears it runs great. What is wrong with my car?
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      Check your alignment and suspensions; perhaps it needs adjustment or replacement. Bring to a shop for inspection. A worn engine and transmission mountings should also consider. Have the engine diagnose by a scan tool.

    Automatic Trans hard downshift to First gear when stopping
    When approaching a stop as I slow and the RPMs get to about 1000 rpms, the car shifts down hard to first rpms just to 1500 then idle at stop at 500 rpms. If I come to a fast stop, hard on brakes no hard downshift. My transmission guy said yea they can do that ...

      Do you have an automatic transmission? Because if you do, it is possible that your main control solenoid is stuck or damaged. If possible diagnose your vehicle with a scan tool to know if there is a stored trouble code in your vehicle and if all your electrical controls and sensors in your transmission are still working great. The other common (but not limited) possible causes of it are damage main control separator plate and loose main control assembly bolt or its gasket is damaged.

      Whose fault was it? Either way you still have to bring it to a repair shop, transmission jobs are not generally a DIY activity. And incase its not your fault, aren't they covered with warranty? your car is barely 2 years old.

      Also, this is the firs time i heard of a DTC with Code E, most DTC's start with a Pxxxx
      bim i google what you said that code E is that on your radio?
      bim here is what i found out for you i have no clue if this will help you but good luck................................................I have a 2009 CR-V EX-L, the battery went dead and I got the "Code Error E" message. I did not know where the reset code was, so I went to the dealer. The guy at the desk found the code in my service book. He tried to re-set and couldn't, then he removed the "backup" fuse for 10 mins and re-installed The Code Error E was still there. I couldnt leave the car so I left. I tried removing the "Backup" fuse, while it was out I checked the radio, still had power, just the door locks didnt work. Finally I disconnected the battery for 10 mins, when I re-connected and turned on the rado, I had the option to enter the code, I did and it worked. Note that the owners manual said after an hour you would be able to re-enter the code if you got the Code Error E message, but that did not happen. Only thing that worked was disconnecting the battery.

      Do you mean that your transmission fluid is low? Do you have a transmission fluid visible leak? What have you done to fix your vehicle?

    What are the problems of my car because I have engine light and SRS light on?
    I have 175000 miles. Codes are P1167 and P1162
    • Autobahn

      P1167/P1162 Before and after ccatalytic- Usually this is an O2 sensor code, BUT that is quite different from the front sensors, most people thing its an O2 sensor but it is an A/F ratio sensor. Make sure your car is under the correct emiisions label because there are times that a car in hmmmm let say New York that has the CA emission label and those mismatches trigger the code. Also F23A1 is VTEC and the F23A4 is ULEV VTECH. There is a big difference when it comes to the correct O2 Sensor.

      P1167 is HO2S S1 heater failure
      P1162 is (AF Sensor) (S1) failure
      You probably need to replace the AF sensor before the cat. The SRS light is the air bag. I've seen some Honda dealers that will check and reset this for free (first time). If it comes back they will need to troubleshoot the SRS system.

    Feels like when i hit the gas its not going as fast as it should and engin revs pretty loud
    does this mean i need a whole new tranny... what does this mean?
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      Your transmission is probably slipping and this is due to any of the following; friction disc is damaged or the clutch assembly is defective; oil in the flywheel also can make this kind of problem; the torque converter is malfunctioning due to reduce pressure (automatic); transmission bands are not adjusted well; worn out transmission gears; dropped in fluid level. Also check your transmission mounts, it may be torn or broken. Replacing the transmission will be your last option.

    How do I replace a speedodometer sensor on my vehicle?
    • justins1stchoice

      purchase the part, any local part supplier should have this. on your vehicle it should be located on the back side of the transmission towards the top. easy job. check your gauge cluster also, common to go out as well.

    Why does my right rear brake calipar make a noise when I pull off from being stopped? Mechanic says calibar - not trans
    90,000 miles. Transmission fluid was leaking prior to problem. Replaced cooler hoses.

      Your calipers are getting stuck, they are not disengaging after you have stopped the car and you have moved forward again. Of course if that happened to be, id see if it can be repaired by lubricating it (usually a stuck moving component of a car lacks lubrication thus geting stuck). Worst case scenario would be you have to replace your caliper.
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      I suggests not lubricate the caliper, because oil will get into the pads and rotor, therefore you will slip when braking. I recommend checking the condition of the brake assembly in the affected wheel. Possibly the piston is stuck due to worn seal/gasket in the slave cylinder. Air bubbles can also cause you this; check, replace the parts and bleed the system.

    Lately I have had no acceleration. I push the gas and the engine revs but the car just does not want to accelerate.
    My car has 160,000 miles and is a manual transmission.

      Did you already check the condition and adjust you transmission linkages? It is possible that it is out of adjustment or damaged.

      It sounds like you need to replace the clutch. Here's a link for parts pricing. If you take it to a shop, the labor time is 7.4 hours.
