What Does Your Nissan Pathfinder Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. 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 or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Nissan Pathfinder transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Pathfinder at all.

Questions About 2002 Nissan Pathfinder’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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 volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Pathfinder towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Pathfinder is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Pathfinder's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2002 Pathfinder’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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.
