Question about 2004 Nissan Sentra
2004 nissan sentra 1.8L. My sister was given the option of just replacing the fluid, or if she wanted to chage out the filter also. Is this filter replaceable? What is the interval for fluid change and filter change. All help will be grreatly appreciated.
Ya but if nissan planted filter's in there tansmission's then they would grow,right?NISSAN does not install filter's in the tran's.It is a permanent screen and luckily for people all I have to do is undo the plug from the pan and drain while hot, screw the screw the plug back in and funnel your new fluid back in to the tran from the dip stick tube(my 04 sentra 1.8s 4speed automatic takes 5 quart's but holds 6-type D nissan fluid from dealer,change about every 15 to 20 thousand miles to keep it clean and thin.Remember trans fluid is petroleum and get's hot burn's and thicken's making restriction's on rotating metal).My car has over 90,000miles and shift's perfect

We don't change automatic transmission filters on any Nissan, they are not a service item. Changing the fluid or (machine) flushing it is the only needed servicing needed. If they are telling you they are going to change your filter, find a new repair facility. Hope this helps.

Don't listen to SUL 827, he evidently doesn't know much about automatic transmissions and the health of there operation. Automatic Transmission filter replacement is vital to the extended life of your transmission. As clutch plates wear the fluid in your transmission become dirty and abrasive. As you would guess the fluid is filtered to remove these partials. Over time the filter becomes clogged lowering the amount of fluid circulating in your transmission causing heat and undo stress to build. If you replace the filter and fluid at regular intervals you will dramatically extend the life of your transmission. With that said you should also know most automatic transmissions fail due to torque converter failure. As the torque converter ages the fins that build hydrolic pressure stretch and cup, this causes the transmission to move less fluid, build less pressure to hold clutch packs together. Over time slippage occurs causing increased wear until they finally fail. Heat and pressure loss are the leading causes for automatic transmission failures.
