My girlfriend has a 1997 nissan altima and it is having some trans problems. The trans was just rebuilt but before it died the trans wouldnt want to upshift when taking off and it wouldnt want to go into overdrive. Then a week before it died, when you would take off from a stop it wouldnt go then it would go bang and then go.
Then it was rebuilt and it still acts funny. The cars seems sluggish now and it doesnt seem to have the power it didnt and it still does the thing where it wont go then goes bang and like drops into gear when you already moving before you stopped?

Does anyone have any suggestions? I work at an infiniti dealer and hooked it up to consult and it doesnt have any codes.

Im thinking maybe the mass air flow?

We, at Nissan, call it a dropping resistor. I think that's your problem. I'm not sure but a I think it's near the airbox, on the driver's side fender.
