Not sure when your 1992 240SX is due for its next transmission service?

Why is Your 1992 240SX’s Transmission So Important?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Nissan 240SX transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Nissan 240SX transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your 240SX at all.

1992 Nissan 240SX Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Nissan's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Nissan tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 240SX’s towing capacity. 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 240SX's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1992 240SX’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Nissan's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
