What is the Cause of a My Nissan’s Transmission Failure
Even with Nissan’s Continuously Variable Transmission, without routinely servicing your vehicle, your transmission will be susceptible to failure. Some symptoms that may cause transmission failure include:
- Low Transmission Fluid: Many transmission problems can be linked to the transmission operating with low transmission fluid, most likely due to a leak. Puddles of transmission fluid is the easiest way to diagnose a failing transmission. The color is either dark red or brown.
- Compromised Torque Converter: Torque converter on automatic transmissions can fail if the needle bearings wear out or are damaged. Symptoms of a failing torque converter include a squealing or grinding noise while driving.
- Malfunctioning Clutch with Delayed Shifting: If you have trouble shifting out of park into drive, this could be a result of either an issue with a transmission computer or low levels of transmission fluid. A burning smell is also associated with this issue.
How Often Do I Need My Transmission Serviced?
More often than not you will not know to service, replace, or repair your transmission until it has completely failed. But with routine maintenance, you can continue to prolong your Nissan’s lifespan.
The first transmission fluid changes around or before 60,000 miles. After the first transmission fluid change, we recommend routine maintenance every two to three years or 25,000 to 30,000 miles.
It is best to become familiar with your owner’s manual guide to stay on top of your routine maintenance schedule for your Nissan car, truck, or SUV.
