Could be one of 2 things depending on if u have engine light on..... Check fluid if low it can shift rough or transmission shift solenoid is a common issue with Nissan's. If no light is on possible that valve body is clogged and needs cleaned. Not recommended to diy unless you are familiar with transmissons. Expecally with 2 springs behind the valve body if u loose one your tranny is junk.....
