Transmission problem
2003 Infiniti G35 6 cyl Automatic 52,000 miles

I have a 2003 infiniti g35 coupe with 52,000 miles on it. Last week I pulled out of a parking spot and while I was waiting to take the main road I felt like something came off but it didn't make a noise. I tried to drive on as normal and the car didn't move. Then I pressed the accelarator pedal harder than usual and the car moved very slowly and made a noise like if I was accelarating it very hard. The service engine soon light came on. Since it was late at night I kept going and the car seemed to be working until I stopped again at a traffick light. The car would not move and I had to press the accelarator harder for it to move while it made the noise I previously described. I did a scan on it and I got the P1764 code. It said something about the direct clutch solenoid valve malfunction. What does this mean? Is this a serious damage?Does this mean that my transmission was damaged and that it needs to be overhauled and rebuilt? Is this repair expensive?
Do you

Hey JOAN20,

This does not mean the transmission as damaged it means one of the shift solenoids stopped working or got stuck for a brief time. I would start be servicing the transmission and clearing the codes, if the problem happens again you will need to go a little deeper by testing and replacing one of the shift solenoids which will probably be the reverse.

Here are some guide to help you.
