I just got a fluid flush for $120. A seal broke on my tranny and originally they didn't want to warranty it bc Jiffy Lube topped off my fluids with a different color oil than Nissan likes. Luckily after heavy arguing, Nissan agreed that the oil inside wouldn't effect the seal. However, I did agree to pay for the fluid flush in the event that something goes wrong in the future, the fluid will be the appropriate color.

I have been to four auto shops and 3 out of 4 could not read any fault in my car. However when I drive my car (as an automatic transmission) is not shifting automatically! I seem to be driving (and stuck) in 2nd gear!
Any ideas-Transmission flush already performed problem still exisitant!

I have a 94 Nissan Sentra 1.6 Maual 5 speed transmission. It changes gears just fine, but when I put it in 5th it kicks it self back out and if I hold it in the 5th gear it jerks around. Would like to know what I need to do to fix this problem.

#43 of 63 2003 Sentra Overdrive
Aug 29, 2011 (6:46 pm)
I have a 2003 Sentra automatic. Transmission works fine until it shifts to overdrive. When in overdrive the transmission seems to slip. Engine RPM will climb. Transmission will then catch and RPM drops. It continues doing this. If the overdrive button is pushed to turn it off, transmission is fine. We took it to a Nissan dealership. They replaced the overdrive switch. It did not fix it. They then wanted to replace the transmission solenoid but could not guarantee us it would fix the problem. One additional piece of info. The night before the transmission started acting up, the back-up lights would not go off. Nissan says this is not related. They also want to charge me $3,000 to replace the wiring harness.
Any suggestions/feedback on these issues would be greatly appreciated.

I'd try another dealership. Sounds like they are running a mechanics apprenticeship on your dime. The car can't be valued at much more then $3,000 so if the transmission and electrical problems persist, it's time to look around for another vehicle.

Our 2003 was similar. Dealer suggested we replace the overdrive switch. We did and it made no difference. They then said the overdrive solenoid in the transmission was bad and recommended fixing that. We decided to get rid of the car. Each item costs $800 and there was no guarantee it would fix problem. If you take it to a dealer be careful and make sure they are reputable. Make sure they guarantee their work will fix the problem.
