Customer Question

2009 Nissan Altima. when warmer weather comes the trans (ctv) goes into a falt mode at any time while driving. The car is exceptional except for this.. I know this was an ongoing problem till 2010. Was there any fix. Are there shops that can widen thresholds to stop it

I DO NOT SEE AN UPDATE BUT I DO SEE A FEW BULLETINS 1 FOR PROPER FLUID AND FILL AS WELL AS COOLANT STRENGTH. BUT IF THOSE CHECK OUT I SEE TSB NTB13-079C WHICH INSTALLS AN ADDITIONAL COOLER TO CORRECT THIS. GIVE IT A READ SHOULD HELP AND RATHER CHEAP COMPARED TO THE TRANS. REBUILD/REPLACE. HOPE THIS HELPS PLEASE REMEMBER TO RATE MY SERVICE AND ACCEPT THANK YOU.

Sorry for the delay just getting back. The car has a cooler in the radiator the tsb is to add an additional cooler to keep the trans temp down to prevent limp mode due to heat.
