I have a 99 nissan maxima. The only way I can get it to go is to put it in 3rd then work it up to drive. Is this for sure the transmission. Or could something else be the problem
This really sounds like a transmission issue so I think you are on the right path. You are talking about an Automatic transmission correct? You shouldn't have to put it in a lower gear to get it to work. The nice thing is these days you can get a rebuilt transmission for a great price.
First thing I would do is do not drive the vehicle far or fast. Ask friends and family for a transmission shop they trust. If you continue to use your work around you may end up damaging the transmission beyond repair.
A diagnosis will help you understand what has gone wrong but you will have to leave your vehicle at the shop for a day or two and they will charge you to tell you what is wrong. You could also phone an auto wrecker and you might know how much a used or rebuilt transmission is.
Hope this helps
