This has been quite a problem for Nissan owners. Try changing your fuel filter and cleaning your MAF with a can of CRC Mass Air Flow cleaner. Was reading a Nissan forum and one poster said he did this and the vehicle was fine once again. Wasn't the transmission after all. Between a bad fuel filter and bad air, it made it seem as if the transmission was at fault................................................................. http://forums.nicoclub.com/transmission-flare-update-anyone-with- tranny-issues-similar-please-read-t311262.html

If it is getting hot then it sounds like the cooler is plugged inside the radiator. Automatics do not like heat, the fluid burns rather quickly then it has lost it's lubing qualities and the tranny burnes up. Have the flow tested through the radiator, if it has low or no flow you can either repalce the radiator or put on an auxiliary trans cooler and totally bypass the radiator cooler. Just make sure it is big enough to handle or rig.
