Transmission problem??

Recommended Posts

I recently just bought a Nissan Altima (2008), from a friend. It was super loud and needed brakes repaired but that wasn’t a problem. After the brakes and mufflers (dual) were replaced, I noticed that the car was still very loud in the cabin. I also had to be adjusted to the cars inability to shift gears. It often “stalls” or just won’t accelerate when I make turns, but will jolt a few seconds later to a proper speed. Now the car does get to any speed I need, but not without a loud humming noise and my rpms are consistently at 5k close to 6 even, just going no more than 45 mph. I asked my mechanic about it and he said nothing was wrong with the transmission, so I tried seeking other possibilities. I was told by fellow car “experts” that it could be a dirty fuel injector, but again my mechanic said it doesn’t need any cleaning, “it’s finnneee”. Is he lying to me? If so why? He says the car is absolutely fine but it’s very frusterating to be beeped at by people thinking that I’m just purposefully driving 20 mph under the speed limit and then getting nearly whiplashed to 50 mph a few seconds later. I’ve looked up everything and can’t find an answer, please help!
