So I'm driving my Nissan and when I have it in overdrive, it actually matches the gas mileage claimed, so you would assume it would need to be in overdrive right? But when I get off the highway, it starts to skip like and catch like a faulty transmission, and then proceeds to die. I then have to turn off the overdrive, put it back in park, rev it a few times, then put it back in drive and press the gas. If I do not rev the engine and jump straight to driving away, it dies again... help please?

My 2003 gmc sierra loses power sometimes. the truck seems fine when in park or neutral but doesn't want to move in drive(lack of power, have to put accelerator to floor to get truck to move). it seems to be flooding with gas because exhaust smells like gas and it burns way more gas than normal. seems to work better with little gas in tank. I have changed fule pump, fuel filter, and plugs, makes no difference

Then after a minute or so it will shift over and the speed ometer will go to normal and you can hear the gear switch over & the car will also **** a little while it goes into the next gear. Does this sound like it needs a new transmission?
