Asked by Jul 22, 2014 at 05:23 AM about the 2002 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

In my 3.5 altima 2002 the tranny started slipping out of no where. It feels as if
the car is in limp mode. The engine seems as if it has lost a lot of power. A while
back the car went into limp mode because the MAF went bad. We replaced that.
Then this to,e when it went into limp mode we replaced that and the throttle
body. Neither helped the tranny still slips and is still in limp mode. I am looking
into replacing the tranny but my gut feeling is telling me it's not the tranny. Can
anybody give me any imput

It's quite possible that the transmission is crapping out on you and putting the car in to limp mode. Sorry to say. But that is my gut feeling.
