The fluid in your transmission is responsible for lubricating all the moving parts that keep your Nissan running smoothly is dirty and losing its ability to function properly. As your transmission fluid moved through gaskets and lubricates gears it is working to keep your transmission cool and less likely to encounter harm.
Since the manual transmission found in your Nissan works under massive amounts of pressure and heat, it is only natural that over time bits of dirt and debris start to show up. The presence of debris and contaminants make your transmission fluid less effective because there is less internal cooling going on. As the transmission gets hotter, the fluid thickens up causing it to lose a lot of its natural lubricative properties.
