Yes, it is unsafe any other way. I have seen people get under the car and slide the transmission off onto their chest and legs. It can be done, but not advisable. When fitting you need both hands to get the transmission onto the splines.

2004 Nissan Altima. Transmission slips between 2nd and 3rd. It is most noticeable when slowing from mid range RPMs and then accelerating again. The Tranny Guy wants to replace the valve body. He says there...


You can clean the valve body,but I would
guess since your driving a slipping trans, you ruined it

It will most likely need to be rebuilt

You do not drive any farther than home or a trans
shop, once you notice any trans issue,you stop using it
immediately

No need to replace the valve body
That is silly
You remove & clean it

Even when warmed up and driving my 2003 Nissan Altima changes gears pretty hard.


You need a transmission flush through the radiator and transmission
a new tranny filter and clean the pan.If this still happens then your transmition is slipping gears because of shaved gears this is noticable
when there is lots of metal particles or chunks.If this occours than i suggest a rebuild or used transmition.

1996 Altima rpm's jumped up while going up hill and it has a grinding sound in passenger front


it probably downshifted (because you were going up hill) and then you'd been pushing it to hard (crazy fast acceleration) and you jacked up your tranny. See a professional
