Why want my 2002 Nissan Altima want rev over 2500 RMP?
It sounds like
you have a problem with the AWU. Accelerator Working Unit, a fancy term for the gas petal. If it is not getting the proper voltage to the ECM it will default to a RPM like you are geting, 2000-2500 rpm. Find one from a junkyard and try it out. I would not shake anything that will just cause other issues.

What does code p1610 mean
A P1610 Code has to do with the NATS system which is the security system in your car. If you look at your key there is a small blue square in it which contains a chip. This chip sends a signal to your immobilizer in your steering column and then to the Electric Control Module. If the ECM does not recognize the ID of the key then it will prevent it from starting.
Try resetting the ECM to get it to start and take it to the dealer. With luck all they have to do is re-program the keys to your ECM again. Worst case scenario, your ECM is toasted and you will need to get a new one. Good Luck!

2002 Nissian Altima will not go back into park
You may have to have the transmission inspected. The problem could be with the linkages that connect the gear shifter to the transmission. Have that one checked out first. If that is ok you may have problems with the syncro. Your car should start at park or neutral. If it does not start at neutral you may have the switches for these checked. Start at the stick where you shift.

2002 Nissan Altman looseing anti freeze but nothing under the car
Many possible causes. Leak can be when you drive, but not show on your driveway. The heater could be leaking into the passenger area, though you'd likely smell the "maple syrup" smell of anti-freeze.
It's also possible that you have a head gasket leak into the coolant, causing the overheating, and blowing some of your coolant out. Get a compression test on the cooling system, and a compression check on the cylinders.
