Is your Nissan having trouble shifting gears? Maybe your transmission requires repair or replacing. Your transmission is an integral part of your Nissan as it controls the gears that your engine needs to pick up speed and slow down. Typically a transmission replacement service is something that happens with older models and vehicles around 150k miles on their odometer but this can happen much earlier if the proper maintenance has not been applied. Below are indications of a transmission needing to be replaced and how that service works.
Squeaking sounds coming from your gears and delays in shifting are common signs of a deteriorating transmission. When you accelerate, you will notice that your gears are not moving as quickly as the engine, finding a delay, or making a grinding sound. Over time, your Nissan will continue to do this, and you will begin to have issues driving in reverse. If you have flushed and changed the transmission fluid in your Nissan and you are still not having success with the gears shifting properly, it may be time to replace the transmission.
When you schedule a transmission replacement service, do not expect to sit at the service center for a little while. This process can take anywhere from 5 to 7 business days to complete. Once a certified technician has inspected your transmission and determined that it needs to be replaced you will not be able to drive your Nissan any further. This service takes several technicians to accomplish and several days to get to the old transmission, remove it and install the new one, and put the Nissan back together. Additional days may be required if the service center has to order your transmission.
