Loss of Gears…

I have a 2005 XTerra. Paid $1K for it. Only code that it was spitting out was for a new fuel pump. Installed a new pump and a new battery and it started right up. After about 20min or so I’m turninf, there was slight shudder and then no gears. It was in idle and moving but no gears. Mash the gas pedal down and nothing. It doesn’t rev up nor do the RPM’s soar. I pull over and turn it off and it starts no problem. I open the hood, disconnect the neg battery cable and let it sit for a few minutes. Hook the battery back up and everything is working properly again. It does this every… single… time I drive it. What is it doing, WHY is it doing it and what do I need to do to fix it? Thank you for any feedback.

What color is the fluid in the radiator? Pinkish?? If so, you have SMOD and the transmission is toast.
The radiator fluid is green and the transmission is fine. All I have to do is stop, turn off the engine, disconnect the battery cable for maybe 2min, hook the battery back up and it drives like nothing happened.
