My car is a Nissan Altima, 2006 model with 4 cylinder engine, i have been having this gear issue for the past one year now. Though i use the car once in awhile. The problem is that, the automatic gear does not shift when i try to engage to drive position, until i had to do it manually. But sometimes, the gear complies and shifts to drive position. Another problem is, when i stop the the car while the gear is on drive position, the engine will be vibrating, but when i return the gear to neutral position, the engine tends to stabilize and runs smoothly. thanks
My car has 152 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Sometimes this issue is caused by a faulty shift solenoid attached to the transmission; while in other instances, it can be caused by low transmission fluid or other damage inside the transmission. The best thing to do is have a professional mechanic complete a car is hard to shift inspection, so they can determine what is causing this problem and recommend the right repairs.
