Questions About 1988 Nissan D21’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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 I tow in a Nissan D21? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your D21 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your D21 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my D21 transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Nissan D21 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
