could be the cable from the shifter to the transmission. or could be the transmission. pretty sure its cvt so there isn't really much to check.

not a cvt. could be the cable or the torque convertor. a shop can do a pressure test to see if there's internal failure.

Reverse planetary gear inside tranny same thing happen to my altima
