Hi, I’m Cary and I’ll be helping you today.
Please understand that I can't smell, hear, or touch the vehicle, so patience is appreciated. Before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as needed, even after the rating..

Have you check it for codes? Most parts stores will do it for free.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I have not but there are no lights on.
The check engine light does not come on.
Expert:  Cary York replied 3 months ago.

Sometimes it may set a trans code and the light will not come on. I would have it scanned. I'm sure I can help but it would be nice to know if there are any codes that would point us in the right direction.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I will go to auto zone and have them scan it.
then I will post again.
Thanks

Expert:  xsvectOR replied 2 months ago.

how many miles on your altima? and does the transmission have a warranty?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I am not sure of the mileage around 150 but the transmission was just replaced about a year ago.
Not sure of the warranty do you think it is the transmission again? Odd that the same thing that went
bad with the transmission is the same thing again this time...
Expert:  xsvectOR replied 2 months ago.

yes these transmissions are notorious to fail...check your warranty
