TAKES A MINUTE BEFORE IT WILL GO

2004 Nissan Altima • 150,000 miles

My car goes into reverse fine, however when I put it into drive it takes a minute before it will go at all, if I put it down to first gear it will go sooner. What could my issue be? Any ideas what I could do or an estimate of what the repair will cost?

Have you checked trans fluid to make sure it is clean and full? Has the check engine light come on?

Definitely check the trans fluid, especially critical if it has the CVT transmission. Change it if it hasn't been changed in the last 30,000.
