My 2001 Sentra has been getting stuck in 3rd or 4th gear, not sure which but does not upshift or downshift. Starts out in this gear. Needless to say, I am just chugging along when this happens. Sometimes the Overdrive light will blink on and off when this happens. If I restart it several times it will sometimes resolve the issue and go back to running normal - all gears. Fluid is normal and clean, no bad smell. Help!
