1992 Nissan Maxima 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. Defying your Maxima towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Maxima is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Maxima's transmission fluid need to be inspected? 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.
