Q: Really hard to shift, trans is jammed now

asked by on

I was having trouble shifting my 2008 Nissan Rogue the other day. I pulled over and turned the car off. When I turned the car back on, I couldn’t shift the transmission. I'm pretty sure the whole CVT transmission is malfunctioning. The drivetrain (and rest of the vehicle) has 154,000 miles on it. What is the most reliable way to replace a transmission on a tight budget?
