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

Has the Axles been checked to see if the Drivers axle popped out? If that axle pops out, you will loose all forward or reverse movement.

Let me know..

Well finally i get a decent response! Thank you. No i have not. But like i said it just popped and wouldnt move no matterwhat gear i put it in.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 3 months ago

Yeah.. First thing I would check is that the drivers side axle is fully seated. If it is, then you may have a internal issue in the transmission.

But like I said, I would check that drivers side axle to make sure it did not pop out of the trans.

Oh.. one thing you may want to have checked also. If you did have any axles replaced, Especially the drivers side axle, if after market, I have seen where the axles come in a hair to short and can pop out of the transmission. Normally that would happen on a turn like you experienced. That is why I mentioned it.

The poppimg soumd came from the passenger side.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
The pooping side came from the passenger side when i turned left and then it stopped in its tracks.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 3 months ago

Passenger axles don't really break often. But if it broke as well, either axle if it pops out or breaks, can cause the vehicle not to move in any direction when put into gear.
