Why is Your 1997 Pickup’s Transmission So Important?

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 1997 Nissan Pickup transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Nissan Pickup transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Pickup at all.

Questions About 1997 Nissan Pickup’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Nissan's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Nissan tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Pickup’s towing capacity. 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 Pickup's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Nissan Pickup 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
