Bad tranny in 2007 Nissan Quest Sign In

Hey all...I'm new here, and I'm a girl...Wink... Newly divorced and was given the 2007 Nissan Quest, with now 148,000. My ex husband was told prior to divorcing that the tranny needed to be fixed. Never happened. It has slipped, going down hills, has recently started to whine more so than ever, and the fluid is dark orange and smells a lil burnt. My question is....I live in Atlanta, and moving back to Chicago in a few weeks, where my son in law is an awesome mechanic....SO, is it SAFE TO DRIVE 600 highway miles without anything major happening?? Like, the tranny completely failing, with can loaded, with son, and 2 dogs???? I have taken it to several places, and frankly don't trust anyone I've dealt with!! Thanks in Advance!!

Sorry to hear about your situation. With what you described as a transmission on its way out, it would be extremely difficult to guess if it would make it or not. You might be driving through some mountains and pretty sure the sick transmission isn't going to like that.

What is your plan if it doesn't make it?

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

Rental car there, then coming back down with a trailer to retrieve it.

Its been very frustrating. Every transmission specialist has given me completely different answers.

I agree. That would be a suicide trip.

I think your smartest move right now is to have a local shop install a used transmission. It's always a gamble to do that but it's a whole lot cheaper than rebuilding that one.

Try to get some local references on an honest shop. It doesn't have to be a trans shop specifically.
