Please help! Automatic micra stall & gear wouldn't engage Sign In

After driving fine and smoothly for 30 minutes, my automatic micra began to kangaroo while trying to gently moderate speed slightly to keep around 30mph. Got to work, and when I left again to go home the problem was no longer evident. Skip forward to pulling up to my house 30 minutes later and it began to shudder as I slowed down to turn my car round to park. Mid 360 turn, it stalled and I couldn't get it to start again straight away.

Turned car all the way off, keys out and then it did start...but when I put it into reverse or drive, it wouldn't move, just revved. Turned off and tried I again, same result. Turned off, put into neutral and pushed my car backwards (as I couldn't go forward due to being in the middle of a 360). Started the car again and then it pulled away.

I would greatly appreciate any help you can give. Many thanks, Ashleigh

Possibly useful background:
Car is 1.0L, year 2000 and has done 45,000 miles.
This year I had some trouble with the car not starting in the morning. The battery and sparks plugs were changed with no use. Then changed the distributor cap and leads, and has since started fine. It has been 3 weeks since that issue was fixed.

We don't have that vehicle here in the states, but from your description it appears there is a problem with the transmission. Have you checked the ATF level? Are there any service lights illuminated?

Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.
