Where the transmission filter on a 2006 Nissan action

What is an action?

You need to find the transmission model in the vehicle

Then google whether it even has a filter

Most Nissan's have screens, so you need to put an inline magnetic
filter on the cooler return line, as you basically have nothing
in the way of any filtering of the trans fluid

Nissan repair

you possible could get some action as the service was not done properly
if there is no problem with the transmission performance
may be an oil change and filter clean will show any problems
to do the filter the pan has to come off and if there is a problem mechanically there will be metal flakes in the pan
if nissan knows of transmission issues then those issues can still be covered by warranty even after the period ends
You will have to get clear legal ,advice for that
at this point , I would take it to an accredited professional transmission shop and ask for an transmission oil change, filter clean , clutch pack and band adjustment and a report on any problems seen during the service
I would not be considering a replacement box yet as it may not be necessary

Unless you know for sure that it has been changed in the past, I would change it, just to help prolong the life of the transmission, and have piece of mind knowing it has been done and when. Be sure to change oil with nothing other than Mopar transmission oil. It has been proven time and time again, that other oils that say they are same, are not, and you will get better life and performance by using Mopar oil. It is also highly recommended to use Autopar/Mopar filter as well. I don't work for Chrysler/dodge, but did for years, and know that when it comes to the transmission, don't go with anything else but Mopar/Autopar Parts on the transmission especially. You may be able to try other brand of parts in some areas, but don't do it in this case.

KIA sorento transmission fluid is burnt if I change the fluid will it mess up the transmission ?

It shouldn't, but be VERY CAREFUL when you drive afterwards. Transmission fluid sometimes creates a varnish like coating over the entire transmission. As the new fluid has a high level of cleaning properties this sludge can stop your new filter up. Only drive it for a short distance and see if it acts like it's not getting oil. Make sure it shifts properly and pulls normally. Any sign of abnormal operation is a sign it is stopping up. If this occurs stop the car immediately and change the filter again. I have seen the filter have to be changed three times. If were mine, with the burnt fluid look I would buy two filters and run it about five or ten times and let it set, then just put a new filter on it for the heck of it. I know changing the filter is a lot of trouble but so is changing a transmissionFrom experience,Gillight

Slow to go in reverse, give lots of gas them gose. then in drive shifts hard. this is a 96 dodge neon.

Check your transmission fluid level. There is a dip stick if you look down on the right side as you face the engine. Make sure the engine is hot before you check it. Add through the dipstick hole with a long funnel. Check with engine running in park also. This action should solve the problem! Good luck!

The transmissions in these mini vans like yours are a very prone to failure, u will find in the end that it will have to be pulled out and repaired, check on the internet for the class action law suits for transmission failures on this van, there are thousands of complaints.
