  1. If the transmission works smooth in 3,4,5 and reverse and not at all in 1,2. Your transmission is damaged internally. Most likely cause would be down shifting at too high or speed/rpm or simple “hot rodding” or “speed shifting”

  2. can this problem be fixed,and what would be the cost?

  3. Sure it can be fixed but will probably cost about the same as a replacement transmission. Around $1400-1600.00

  4. NOT WORTH FIXING GET A NEW TRANSMISSION. SORRY

  5. my nissan maxima jerks on changing gear,moves sluggishly with D but does wel wit R and Manual aspect altho jerks on engaging.also hard starts

  6. all these started after i was stopped on the road while on a journey.Then the auto electrician noted that the body earth wire connected to the gear box hav disconnected,which he reconnected thereafter.

  7. You will want to have the codes scanned to see if there are any transmission codes set. But in the mean time you can at least make sure the transmission fluid level is full.

  8. pls im waiting

  9. the transmission fluid level is ok.the scan didn’t say anything about the transmission

  10. the mech told me after scanning that these are the faulty areas(codes);p0340,p0037,p0057,p0118 and p0460

  11. pls im waiting oooo

  12. P0340 NISSAN Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Bank 1
    Possible causes
    – Camshaft Position Sensor harness is open or shorted
    – Camshaft Position Sensor circuit poor electrical connection
    – Faulty Camshaft Position Sensor
    – Faulty starter motor
    – Starting system circuit
    – Dead (Weak) battery

    P0037&p0057 NISSAN HO2S12 Heater Control Circuit Low (won’t cause drivability issues) – Replace both back 02 sensors to fix

    P0118 NISSAN Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor Circuit High
    Possible causes
    – Low engine coolant level
    – Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor harness is open or shorted
    – Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor electrical circuit poor connection
    – Faulty Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor
    – Faulty engine coolant thermostat

    P0460 Fuel Level Sensor Circuit Malfunction( won’t cause drivability issues)

    So, replace the cam shaft sensor, thermostat and temp sensor and you should be good to go.
