Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.

I will do my best to assist you

so,the engine runs well,,,it is the transmission acting up?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
What does that mean?
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 11 months ago.

the code you are giving me is a transmission code..

does the engine itself seem to run well?

Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 11 months ago.

did you ever have any trouble with the radiator?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
The engine runs well; it's just that when driving and you come to a stop at a light or stop sign, while pressing the accelerator to go, the car engages very slowly and then takes off very quickly.
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 11 months ago.

ok,,so,the transmission isnt engaging correctly,,right?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
no radiator problems
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 11 months ago.

ok,,

i would think this is the pressure control solenoid problem

Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 11 months ago.

stand by

Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 11 months ago.

tell me,does the speedometer work?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
speedometer works
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 11 months ago.

ok.

what happens to allot of these nissan transmissions is that the radiator gos bad and lets water into the transmission,thus ruins the tcm[transmission control module] that is located on the valve body of the transmission.

even though,the radiator may not have done this on yours,i think your problem may be the tcm,the tcm isnt cheap,it may cost around $1000+/-
