If the 1997 Nissan Altima with an automatic transmission is shifting gears too early, it could be that the shift solenoid for the transmission is faulty. Both the shift solenoid and the speed sensor on the transmission should be checked.

What are the first signs of transmission problems in most vehicles?

You may feel a jerk in the car when it automatically shifts from one gear to the next; or it may feel like the transmission is 'slipping' or can't catch a gear when accelerating; or it may be difficult to accelerate or drive. All of these are early signs of transmission problems. Transmission problems can be very costly and its worth your time and money to do the recommended maintenance. The first signs of trouble are rough shifting and changing shift points and speeds. You may also have a transmission light for over heating transmission fluid. Take these warning signs seriously.
