Can you be more specific?
Is is a manual or automatic?
What year vehicle?
How many miles?
Is the vehicle warmed up when you notice the symptom?
Is the fluid at the correct level?
Do you have non Nissan floor mats?
Are there any noises or vibrations that accompany the symptom?
If there is any other information you could provide it you help greatly.

I just gotta know - why did you ask about the floor mats?

In my 2001 Sentra XE I had purchased aftermarket floormats that didn't have the retention tab that Nissan original equipment mats have. The smaller cones on the bottom side did not properly grip on the short pile carpet, if you call it that, it was more like a thick felt. The mats would slip behind the pedals and would in my case interfere with their movements. The drivability problems it caused shared many similarities the described symptoms. Poor braking, hesitation on throttle, etcetera... etcetera... etcetera...
#5 of 63 1997 Nissan Altima GXE Transmission Issues
Nov 13, 2007 (9:34 pm)
97 Altima with 85,300 miles on it. When car is cold, automatic transmission has trouble shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. I have to let my foot off the accelerator and eventually it will kick in. It only does this in the morning when I start to drive to work. Then the rest of the day, it doesn't do it. Took car to transmission shop, they could not find any problems. I'm trying to sell the car. Can anyone offer suggestions as to what it might be?

Possibility of a completely clogged pcv valve. Surprising, but true. I own a 2005 nissan sentra 1.8 s automatic. Nissan has nothing on replacing these things, but when they clog up and can cause a pressure build-up within the engine causing it to work hard and idle higher. Please replace as soon as you can. The only other solution other than that could be a dirty throttle plate. I replace the pcv valve every 12 to 15 thousand miles and clean the throttle plate every 30 thousand miles.

Problem 1) I have a 1989 Sentra 5 speed manual transmision that will not advance while its in 2nd or 3rd gear
2) after driving it for 30 minutes or so it will stop and won't start untill 1/2 hour or so later.
So is there any one with similar problem or with skills to know what is wrong with my sentra? any help will be apreciate.
