Transmission Fluid Maintenance at Parkway Nissan of Stoney Creek
A vehicle’s transmission needs to be serviced, just like other moving parts of a vehicle. A transmission service is a regular part of vehicle maintenance and should be treated just like an oil change. The primary purpose of a transmission service is to flush out the old fluid and have it replaced with new transmission fluid. When you get a complete transmission service, it can also include other things, such as replacing or cleaning the filter and examining the sump pump or pan.

What is Transmission Fluid and What Does it Do?
Transmission fluid keeps the moving parts inside of your vehicle’s transmission lubricated so they can move more efficiently and freely. In an automatic transmission, the fluid also does a few more things, including acting as a coolant. Anytime there are a lot of moving parts, proper maintenance is the key to longevity. If you want to avoid costly transmission repairs, schedule a transmission service today.
When Should Your Vehicle Get a Transmission Service?
A vehicle’s owner’s manual will give you the information you need to learn more about when it needs a transmission service and what the ongoing intervals should be. This will also depend on if you drive a manual or automatic transmission. To learn more about when your vehicle needs transmission service, contact us at Parkway Nissan and we’ll be happy to help.
Nissan CVT Transmission Preventative Maintenance Service
You should be checking your transmission fluid on a regular basis, just like you would with your vehicle’s engine oil. Running too low on transmission fluid can cause incredible harm to your transmission and cost you a lot of money to repair, so staying on top of it and checking your transmission fluid levels is important.
Nissan CVT transmission fluid is carefully formulated to enable your transmission’s ratio changes through hydraulic pressure and to protect internal components against wear while still allowing sufficient friction between belts and pulleys to transfer your engine’s torque to the wheels. Over time, CVT fluid can lose the necessary properties and should be replaced periodically. It is also important to check the transmission for fluid leaks to repair if necessary.
*Nissan recommends CVT transmission service/fluid replacement every 96,000 km or 72 months (whichever comes first).
