You probably have a transmission line pressure problem. It may be easy to fix, but at 157k miles, if the transmission hasn't been adequately serviced or overhauled in the past you may end up needing a transmission overhaul because of the high mileage for an automatic. Go to a Nissan specialist or a transmission shop and get a diagnosis, it could cost you an hour's labor time but it would be worth it to know whether you want to fix it.
