What’s the Importance of Your 2016 Frontier’s Transmission?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Frontier’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Nissan Frontier transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Nissan Frontier transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Frontier at all.

Questions About 2016 Nissan Frontier’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Nissan? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Nissan? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Frontier’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Frontier is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Frontier's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Nissan Frontier transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
