Altima XL: My 2005 Nissan Altima XL V6 sometimes stops in traffic

Customer Question

My 2005 Nissan Altima XL V6 sometimes stops in traffic and I have difficulty restarting it. When it restarts, it will not move forward in the Drive gear. I will move backwards in reverse , but it will only move forward in a lower gear (1st I suppose). After a long period of not driving it, it will move forward in Drive, until it stops in traffic again, and I must drive it in another gear. Please help!

Hi there, thanks for your question.
So the transmission shifts smoothly until it stalls the first time?
Have you checked for codes? Is the engine light on?
