Post Nissan Tiida (versa hatchback 2008) Accelaration problems

Hello heres my story ,
bought the car in 2008 been running fine until last year ,
all of a sudden was driving normally when i go to press the gas pedal the car would not move forward , but still make the vroom vroooom sound , if you press all the way down on the gas pedal the car will move forward a little bit but the car will make the extreme vroooooooom sound .
So I moved to the side of the road , and turned of the car and then turned back on , the car drives normally again , i can press gas pedal and its like nothing has happened .
It has been doing this for a year , I took it to Nissan Dealership and they told me it might be the transmission .
So I take it to a Transmission specialist shop where they scan the vehicle and find no error codes , the guy tells me the computer needs to be "reprogrammed ".
So my question now is ive been looking online and see alot of problems with Nissan tiida on this , alot of people talk about throttle body etc .
So question is offcourse i would like to know if anybody was able to get this problem fixed.
And when they talk about reprogramming the computer , do they mean actuall plugging a computer and doing the repogram , or doing the reset with the key in the ignitation and performing a few steps ?

Thanks

I would suggest that your try doing the reset with the key first. If that doesn't work, then it may be something that needs to be addressed with the dealership. There have been a few posters here with the same problem and that key reset did the job. Good luck!

I dunno..........

'...when i go to press the gas pedal the car would not move forward , but still make the vroom vroooom sound , if you press all the way down on the gas pedal the car will move forward a little bit but the car will make the extreme vroooooooom sound .'

......that says the TB is working normally (the engine is revving up) but the car not going has all the earmark of a transmission issue to me.........you can reset that all you want and all it will do is maybe correct an issue right then, that does nothing for the likely deeper problem which then later becomes permanent.

Iceman,
Do you have a cvt or a traditional automatic transmission?

Also, I assume when you stepped on the gas and didn't move, the tachometer (rpms) jumped up correct?
