2000 Nissan Maxima Q&A
2000 Nissan Maxima Question: Transmission Problem???
1st time a couple of months ago and 2nd time just his weekend, on really hot Florida days I will be driving along and go to accelerate and nothing happens. I depress the accelerator and I can watch the tach go up but the car doesn't accelerate it just cruses along at the old speed it was going, repeat an get the same thing. The last time I experienced this I pulled over shut off the engine, waited a couple of minutes, started it back up and it ran as though nothing had ever happened. All trans fluids are good. Auto Zone pulled two codes: #720 Speed Sensor and #138and #139 O2 Sensor. THANKS! - flmcrider635
