2001 Nissan Altima 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Nissan? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Altima’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Altima is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Altima's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2001 Altima’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Nissan. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
