2002 Nissan Maxima Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Nissan's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Nissan tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Maxima’s towing capacity. 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.
  • 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
