My Altima was fine one day and the next day started cutting out and got worse until it just stopped that same day. Now it starts but wont go in any gear. I was told by a local mechanic that my transmission is bad and if I find a transmission they will put it in for $400. I haven't been able to find a replacement for under $1000
The number one cylinder does not fire . Checked coil pack , wire loam , fuel presser ect.
