2001 Nissan Maxima Transmission Service & Repairs

What’s the Importance of Your 2001 Maxima’s Transmission?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Nissan Maxima transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Nissan Maxima transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Maxima’s not even driveable.

Questions About 2001 Nissan Maxima’s Transmission

  • 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. 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 Maxima? 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 Maxima’s towing capacity. 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 Maxima transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Nissan Maxima’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
