"manual" ...( pad shifters ) it's all fine and I can go up to
7,000 rpms before it well change by its self but ather a
little bit it want go over 4,000 rpms before it well change
the gear and it feels like it loses power ..... idk what it
could be but I think it is the CVT getting hot and the
computer is trying not to hurt the car .... it just now started

The CVT is a known problem area. I would never even look at a Nissan with a CVT. You probably should have it checked out.
