Scotty I have a 2008 Nissan Altima with a cvt transmission. When I’m at a complete stop and give it gas nothing happens for about 3 seconds then it goes, happens even if I’m flooring it. Engine does not rev while giving gas. What could this be?

If it is your transmission, Nissan has extended powertrain warranty for Nissan Altima between 03-10 from 5yr/36000 to 10yr/120,000, so you might be able to get yourself a new transmission courtesy of Nissan. Get it checked by a Nissan dealer and see if you qualify for their recall.

often it's the cvt going out, they are junk. Have a pro scan it and road test it for that first
