Why is Your 2008 Pathfinder’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 Pathfinder’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Nissan Pathfinder transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Nissan Pathfinder transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Pathfinder’s not even driveable.

2008 Nissan Pathfinder Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Nissan? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use 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. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. 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 Pathfinder's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Nissan Pathfinder transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
