Hi there,

What kind of issue do you need assistance with?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Engine died when shifted into gear. Can get car started to roll and then shift into drive. As long as the car is moving trans shift great. My diagnosis is locked torque converter.
Nissan Mechanic: Mike V., Nissan Technician replied 6 months ago

It does sound like a locked converter for sure. Assuming it's not a cvt transmission model. I assume you have already checked the trans fluid, but if not I would start there. I have seen low atf cause this type of problem, but I do have to agree with a torque converter issue. Is the A/T light flashing?

It is a CVT. I have tried to back probe pin 38 from TCM. It's hard to figure out exactly with one there is 4 brown wires coming from harness. I believe I have determined there is no voltage to activate torque converter clutch solenoid so assume it is locked. I have not checked fluid. It has only a fill spout no dipstick. I know it has a plug /screw to remove to see if fluid runs out but I haven't tried anything to do with fluid level. I thought of just adding a quart to see if anything changes.

There are no TCM or Engine codes I use an Autel 908
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Live data all looks good except for the two speed datas show like 0 rpm on one and 18.4 mph on SPEED SE
Nissan Mechanic: Mike V., Nissan Technician replied 6 months ago

Give me a moment to see if I can pull up the wiring for the TC solenoid on this and confirm what you see. OK

If the torque converter is stuck / locked is there a way to free it up?
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 6 months ago

How do you know the torque converter is locked?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Because of the previous things I said. Did you not see what I told the other tech?
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
The engine dies almost instantly when shifted into gear. You can get the car started rolling a little and shift into drive and then drives great as long as you don't come to complete stop.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 6 months ago

If the torque converter is locked up, meaning the inside stator is locked, that is internal of the torque converter and the torque converter would need to be replaced. How many miles do you have on the car?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Only 102k. Well maintained.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Could it be low of fluid? There is no dipstick and I haven't taken the fill plug out
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 6 months ago

Not likely fluid level. From what you are describing it does sound like a locked up stator in the torque converter. So the only way to really resolve it would be to remove the transmission and replace the torque converter. At the same time while the transmission is removed, I would have it checked out also. It would suck to put a new torque converter in only to find the transmission was internally damaged because of it later after you put it back in

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Yeah for sure. It does shift very well.
Maybe I can get Nissan to cover it. 2013 Nissan Altima since they have extended the warranty on many of their CVT's.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 6 months ago

The only way you can find out is if you contact and inquire at 1-800-Nissan-1
