suggest that you get a copy of a workshop manual and access to some small reading torque wrenches ( inch pounds). Talk with an accredited auto specialist shop as it may be cheaper to have them do it for you.

How do I change the automatic transmission fluid in my 2005 Nissan Pathfinder?

there will be a plug at the bottom of the transmission. pull the plug, let it drain, and replace the plug. Refill with the recommended amount of fluid out of the owners manual. Run the vehicle through the gears a few times with the car started. let it idle till the temp. comes up, then check the trans fluid level and add till full

check transmission fluid first.if its low add to get correct level.if transmission fluid look dark smells burnt replace fluid and filter.if car still dont move forward.looks like you have bad worn out forward clutch plates and seals.also bad transmission oil need a overhaul or new transmission.

My 1995 Nissan Pathfinder doesn't go into reverse, but does go into drive, 2nd, and 1st. I know it's some kind of transmission problem, but what kind??? But it's only a three year old trans....

Get the transmission fluid checked and change the filter & see if that solves the problem.
Else it is an expensive fix.
