1987 Nissan Pathfinder Transmission Service & Repairs

What Does Your Nissan Pathfinder Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Nissan Pathfinder transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Nissan Pathfinder transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your Pathfinder isn’t working at all.

Questions About 1987 Nissan Pathfinder’s Transmission

  • 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. 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 a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Pathfinder 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.
  • Does my Pathfinder's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Nissan Pathfinder’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
