5 Signs You Should Have Your Transmission Fluid Changed
Unsure whether or not it’s time to have your transmission serviced?
Transmission Grinding or Strange Noises - This can also signify that your fluid level is low. With the engine still running, check your transmission fluid level. If it is still adequate, this means you most likely need a transmission flush.
Problems Shifting Gears -Transmission fluid that contains too much dirt or sludge will cause sluggish responses in the transmission. This can result in your vehicle changing gears too quickly or too late while driving. In a manual vehicle, you may find it very difficult to change gears at all.
Slipping Gears - In order to stay in the appropriate gear, your transmission needs to develop enough pressure. A dirty transmission may cause lack of hydraulic power. When it is too dirty, contaminants interfere with the flow of transmission.
Surging of the Vehicle - Because your vehicle’s dirty transmission does not allow for adequate transmission fluid flow, your vehicle may tend to jump forward or fall backward for no good reason.
Delay in Vehicle Movement - Your vehicle may stall for one or two seconds before moving after having been put in gear.
If it’s time to have the transmission fluid flushed on your Nissan, head on over to Downey Nissan.
