What Does Your Nissan Maxima Transmission Do?

Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Nissan Maxima transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Nissan Maxima transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Maxima at all.

2008 Nissan Maxima Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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 volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. 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.
  • When should I have my Maxima's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
