Transmission Services for 2017 Nissan GT-R

What Does Your Nissan GT-R Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your GT-R’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Nissan GT-R transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Nissan GT-R transmission trouble you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your GT-R at all.

Questions About 2017 Nissan GT-R’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Nissan's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your GT-R 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.
  • How often does my GT-R transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2017 GT-R’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
