Questions About 1990 Nissan Maxima’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Nissan? 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 volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Maxima’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Maxima transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Nissan Maxima’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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.
