1996 Nissan 200SX Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Nissan's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Nissan tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your 200SX towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my 200SX's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Nissan 200SX’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Nissan, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
