What Does Your Nissan Pathfinder Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. 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 Pathfinder 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. If you ignore Nissan Pathfinder transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Pathfinder at all.

Questions About 2006 Nissan Pathfinder’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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 Pathfinder? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Pathfinder’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Pathfinder transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2006 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
