2009 370z 7AT transmission issues?

8 posts in this topic

Hey guys, is anyone else having problems with their automatic transmission? My car seems to have rough gear changes and there's a delay in acceleration when smashing the throttle. Using it in manual mode drives absolutely fine. Any tips? TIA. Sent from my SM-N915G using Tapatalk

Have you tried re-setting the ECU?

Mine is the same with the initial delay. Even after tuning. I think that's just how it is. Noticeably better in Manual mode as well

I find that it is indecisive too when I drive it like an old lady to conserve fuel.

If you drive it with a little heavier throttle than usual on take offs it seems to become more responsive to your input and run smoother, I feel as if the car hates being driven slow.

An ECU reset temporarily eases the behavior but it will return. My remedy, leave it in M mode and drive the thing like its meant to be driven.

I've taken it to the Nissan dealer twice so far and they find no problems. Its frustrating! Sent from my SM-N915G using Tapatalk
