My car won't accelerate when I'm turning or on a slope. It's also really jumpy


Asked by Aug 10, 2016 at 04:49 AM about the 2003 Nissan Murano SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I drive an 03' Nissan Murano. It was handed
down to me with a few minor problems. I was told
not to make long trips with it, to just drive it to
college and work. I recently took a few hundred mile
trip with my friends and ever since then my car has
been messing up. I got in my car to go to work the
day after and it was jumpy. It wasn't anything too
major. The car has 187,000 miles on it. The
transmission has been slightly skipping for a month.
Everything was fine. Until I pulled into the parking
garage where I work and I have to go all the way to
the 5th floor. I was on the ground floor and my car
just stopped accelerating. So I put it in park, turned
my car off and then turned it back on and it moved
again but my car was making a thunder roaring
noise. I took it straight to my dads house and told
him what happened. He was a mechanic for 7 years
about 20 years ago. He still knows his stuff pretty
good. He got in my car, drove it around. He came
back and told me it was the hub barrings. I didn't
question him. I mean he's my dad. I bought the hub
barring, he put them on. My car is still doing the
same stuff. And it's so much worse now. When the
car was given to me it had a brand new alternator
and battery put in it. The only thing I could think of it
could be is the transmission or the front axels. I
need opinions, advise. I'm so tired of dancing
around trying to guess what's really wrong.
Everyone is trying to avoid I being the transmission
being messed up because it costs a pretty penny
for another one. Help!!
