My car will shift into gear but won't drive, what's wrong?
If its an auto, check the oil level in the gearbox. If the gearbox is low on oil it can cause the torque converter to stop working. Seeing as a torque converter is the equivalent of a clutch in a manual car if it stops working you get no drive. Which brings us nicely to the next suggestion, if It's got a manual gearbox the clutch may be dead.
Wha if the oil level is not low
Take your pick. Could be anything from a dead gearbox to a dead differential. Or it could be as simple as a broken drive coupling on the propeller shaft or a broken drive shaft. There's a few different possibilities.
Mine is doing the same but I have an automatic
Mine just started doing same thing today, it is 2006 Altima, I can do reverse just fine, but have to put it in low to get started, then manually shift to next level, the into to drive - 3rd gear. It runs fine doing that. But when trying to start off in 2nd, 3rd or drive - does not go.
Try the 10A fuse through bat saver in the left side fuse compactor.

mine is a ALTIMA 1995
Just purchased a used 07 Nissan Altima 2.5S. It will drive in reverse but won't drive in (drive). Pleaseeee help!!
Mine is a 2012 Altima and recently, on hot days (with A/C running) after I've been on the freeway for an hour, I'm pressing the accelerator but I'm not accelerating. It's not overheating, and like someone else on here said, when I stop and let it cool off for a while then it seems to be okay again. But this is happening every day and it might be getting worse. Is it my tranny or something else?
2007 altima 2.5 tranny swapped and no fwd drive gears only reverse like the transmission that was in the car before.
Hi I have a 2009 Nissan Altima and I can put it in drive but it wont go what's wrong with it
My problem was the transmission. It's a CVT, and they're crap - especially for years 2008- 2012 (approximately). Nissan has at least 4 different class action suits pending against them for these problems. I tried to get Nissan to cover part or all of the cost of repair or replacement, but because mine is a 2012 and had over 120,000 miles on it, I was out of luck. I paid $3,700 for a rebuilt one (which carries a 3-year, 500,000 mile warranty) at a local tranny repair shop. It works fine so far. I will never buy another Nissan. The only reason I switched from Toyota is that the Nissan was a few thousand cheaper, but...well, you know the old saying: "You get what you pay for..."
