Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

This may sound odd, but your transmission has what they call a Forward clutch for the forward gears and a reverse clutch for the reverse gears. It sounds like the reverse clutch has either failed, or something in the forward clutch operation has broke, locking it's engagement which is why it wants to move forward in neutral. This is more likely due to a internal failure in the transmission. So I am just preparing you on what to expect. I would take this to a Trans shop since they specialize in transmission repairs to have this verified.

Do you have any more questions on this?

my wife bottomed out the car rupturing transmission pan, is it possible she bent an external linkage? where is the external linkage located?
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago

Well the valve body could be damaged. Which can certainly affect transmission operation. I would have the transmission pan removed and inspect for damage. Then go from there. That will require a visual inspect to determine if that is your issue.

If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask.

If not, and you're satisfied with my help, please Rate me. That is how I get credit for my work. I hope I have provided you with Excellent Service.

Thanks Jay!

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
