Customer Question
Hello, I have a 99 Infiniti...
Hello,
I have a 99 Infiniti G20 and have been experiencing some transmission issues.
From a stop it will idle around 500/600rpms and accelerate smoothly, up until 3,500 rpms before switching into second gear, which is not exactly a smooth shift. From second into 3rd it seems to accelerate smoothly and not shift until the same 3,500 / 4,000 rpms. Sometimes I have to lift my foot off of the accelerator to ease it into the next gear. From this it shifts pretty smoothly but seems to have no power. Getting the car up to a speed of say 40 or 50 doesn't take much time but it does have hard shifts, any speed over 50 takes awhile to achieve, but it runs very smooth.
The car has 146k miles on it, and the motor runs very well, I want to keep it but don't necessarily want to throw a ton of money at it. Any advice?
Tranny fluid is dark, and was low, so I added some Lucas tranny stop slip, which honestly I don't think did much besides add a volume of liquid.
Thanks!

What Customers are Saying:

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!
