What You Need to Know About Your Transmission

The purpose of your transmission is to make sure the right amount of power is dispersed to your wheels by shifting gears. Your Nissan or used vehicle could have a manual transmission or automatic trans mission. On a manual transmission, the driver shifts gears with a clutch. An automatic transmission does everything for the driver. Your transmission is a vital part of your vehicle. How do you know when you need to have it serviced?

You Notice a Fluid Leak

Noticing a small amount of fluid underneath your car could be a sign that your transmission needs servicing soon. Transmission fluid is a bright red color and usually smells sweet.
