Not shifting properly and...

Not shifting properly and sometimes the speedometer just stops working. When this happens accelerating is impossible until I pull over and shut car off for a few minutes then it works fine again

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you noticed any leaking?

Is a 2000 and no leaks

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '00 transmissions?

Nissan quest auto

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Quest yourself? What have you tried so far?

Just starting but don't know what to start with

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No I think that covers it

Hello and thank you for your question. My name is***** need to check the engine management computer for trouble codes to identify which speed sensor signal is causing your problem. If you do not have a code reader, most auto parts stores like Autozone will pull the codes for you or rent/loan you a code reader. Is this something you can do for me and write down the code number? Then I can tell you how to proceed.
James.
