My 2006 nissan altima 2.5 automatic transmission will sometimes not go into drive. It will go into reverse, but you have to manually shift it into 1 then 2, 3 and then drive to get car to move.

Asked by Mar 16, 2014 at 04:51 PM about the 2006 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

only way to get car to drive when this happens is to shift manually from 1 through to drive.   
After that car runs fine for rest of day.  Sometimes it shifts into gear hard.

Transmission failure, normally shift and lock solenoid or rear output speed sensor stops working but it would stretch gear

Once I come to a complete stop I have to start the process all over again. any info will help. thanks in advance
