The contact was also experiencing a failure in which the distance between the accelerator pedal and brake pedal was causing the contacts foot at times to be trapped between the two pedals and he had to maneuver his feet with the pedals to prevent a failure. My question is, we are planning a trip and I was planning on taking the car to get a oil change and get the Tranny fluid changed which I always tried to do in my other cars every 100,000 miles. So either your warranty is expired even the drivetrain. This is a very common problem with the transmissions in Nissan vehicles especially with the vct transmission. However, in the scheduled maintenance provided in the owner's manual the first transmission related maintenance does not occur until 60,000 when they recommend checking the transmission fluid. And checking the quantity to see if it is correct is not easy either. You could just try a drain and refill as that will take out about half the fluid.
I limbered the car home. Nissan is aware of issues with this transmission but will not recall or make ethical route to keep consumer safety a priority. The dealership is going to keep the car overnight and test drive it in the morning when it is cold. This occurred as the car was turning from a busy road into a parking lot and created a hazardous situation. Anyone who owns a Nissan knows that when it comes to repairing their automobile only the highest quality replacement parts will do. Very much in need of some schooling on this stuff. While driving 25 mph, the vehicle stalled without warning.
I think this will be a better approach because although I will not get all the fluid out I can change it more frequently as a compensation around 75k it will be cheaper and I know what I'm putting in the car and what I've done. I brought my car into my dealer, Nissan autofare stratham, and they informed me that I need a new cvt transmission. When the vehicle was turned off, it failed to restart; however, the electrical system was still operable. My car has 248,000 miles on it and my transmission just now went out on me. That transmission failed again in less than six months and because it was outside the replacement transmission's warranty, the dealer nor Nissan will replace the defective transmission. Dealership confirmed a failed transmission. And thank you Adam for letting me know about the battery terminal Is the intercooler that I have accessible at all or is it in the actual transmission and sealed? My transmission failed at a busy intersection on a major 4 lane road we were almost hit broadside at a high rate of speed the other driver swerved to miss us and I had to push the car out of traffic.
It was replaced with a re-manufactured cvt transmission under warranty. I have phoned, emailed, and written to Nissan north America certified mail warning them about this problem and their response was that my car is out of warranty now and there's nothing they will do about it. My vehicle has been at a local Nissan dealer for 2 weeks awaiting Nissan authorization to perform the warranty repair. Off topic I also had my positive battery terminal replaced with the updated nissan terminal. The contact was able to restart the vehicle and it operated normally. Failure of the coolant system can cause overheating of the engine and may pose a unsafe driving hazard, however by their Nissan definition changing the radiator and transmission and leaving debris in the coolant lines is within reason and safety guidelines and do not have to flush or replace any other component that the oil mixture has touched even if it did damage those components as a result of the oil mixture. I've also seen this done on a Nissan Murano so I know its possible, but I don't know how to exactly do it on my Sentra.
I thought that the car was well made enough to make it to 200,000 miles, but now I'm very worried. If you are having problems with the transmission in your Versa, such as clunky shifting or hesitation, check the fluid level first - it is amazing how many drivers pay thousands of dollars for transmission work when a half quart of transmission fluid would have fixed the problem. Nissan said they would be glad to give me a discount only I purchased a new vehicle- that is unjust. So there is no way to tighten the Pulstar spark plugs because 15ml does not fit the the cylinder where the spark plug is. The cvt, at times, fails to accelerate properly, putting driver at risk. I asked 7 dealers how much fluid I need to do a full change and I got answers ranging from 1 quart to 11 quarts.
Basically that dirty fluid is keeping it going. Good luck with your car, I now have to find me a new car A fluid flush is never a bad idea. Any info on this would be great. He pulled the car off at the closest exit. One word of advice my dad and husband gave was to always let the car warm up long enough for the rpm's to drop down to 1000. I did some searches on line and saw that there have been a some issues with the transmissions in there cars.
Failure of the Nissan cvt transmision in certain situations can result in an accident, serious injury and even death. Car died in the middled of the road I was lucky I was not killed these cars are dangerious!!!. The first car swerved to the ditch side and missed us the rest of the traffic saw what happened and stopped and went around. I don't want to replace the transmission for a third time with what appears to be a defective product that will likely fail again and is a serious safety issue that Nissan will not accept responsibility for. This intercooler transfers heat from the trans fluid to the radiator fluid.
On top of low prices, Advance Auto Parts offers 2 different trusted brands of Automatic Transmission Fluid products for the 2007 Nissan Pathfinder. Today it only has 8000 miles on it and it is stalling and shutting off when I drive it. But I don't trust them and I would like to change the fluid myself. While driving 45 mph, the contact's vehicle inadvertently shifted from drive into neutral before stalling. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 40,000. Actually many transmissions of that type need to be running when you fill them.
