Getting a growling noise from the transmission ( I think) while at a stop and then starting to move. I have a video link for an example. The fluid level is good on the dipstick. (while running)

Thanks for your insight.

2012 Sentra

only 50k miles on a 2012 Sentra? Wow, that’s really low. I have a 2012 Sentra as well but with 109k miles.

hard to tell what that sound is.

You need to flush the transmission fluid every 50-60k. And it'll run like a champ. The metal belt breaks down and sheds, so the filters get clogged. It's simple enough to drain, and refill. They last east 200k if you do this.
