2006 Nissan Maxima Transmission Service & Repairs

Why is Your 2006 Maxima’s Transmission So Important?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Maxima’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Nissan Maxima transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under 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.

2006 Nissan Maxima Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Nissan's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Nissan Maxima? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Maxima 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.
  • When should I have my Maxima's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2006 Maxima’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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
