So? what is your problem then? if you want to know what type of fluid you are getting to put, pull out the trans dipstick, clean it, and on the bottom part of the stick you will find the type of trans fluid you have to use.

Check transmission fluid


The most common transmission problem on a Nissan pickup is operating the truck with the transmission fluid low. Nissan owners needs to pull the dip-stick and see if the level is low. The fluid level must be checked when the truck engine is idling. Nissan pickup owners also need to look at the color of the fluid and see if it needs to be changed or just leveled off. The color must be transparent and not black or brownish in color. The owner must also smell the transmission fluid to see if the fluid smells burnt. If the transmission fluid smells burnt, then the transmission fluid must be changed as soon as possible. Over-filling the transmission fluid level also creates Nissan pickup transmission problems.

What is the recommended millage for a transmission flush


Transmission fluid should be changed every 30,000 miles, or more frequently if the vehicle is used for towing or carrying heavy loads.

When replacing the transmission fluid, first the mechanic drives the vehicle to get the fluid warm and then removes the drain plug at the bottom of the transmission (if applicable), or removes the transmission pan allowing the fluid to drain.

The transmission is then filled with fresh fluid, and the engine is started. With the engine running and the transmission in "Park," the mechanic checks the level of the transmission fluid on the dipstick. Then the vehicle is driven once more, and the fluid level rechecked; if needed, more fluid is added.

Using the wrong automatic transmission fluid may invalidate the manufacturer's warranty and affect the shift characteristics of the transmission. Consult the owner's manual for information on the kind of fluid to use.

Many automatic transmissions have a filter that can be replaced when changing the transmission fluid. Changing this filter may allow a closer examination of the fluid for debris, which may be a sign that the transmission is about to fail.

Hope this helps.

The transmission seems to slip when going in reverse in my Ford Explorer 1994 (OK going forward). Transmission fluid is OK.


have one myself w/over 400.000 miles suggest you change transmission fluid and filter,just add lucas transmission treatment to your fluid change. never had problems w.mine. but firm beleiver in lucas oil and transmission and fuel treatments. just trying to see how far i can go w/mine. the lucas treatment added to your fluid and transmission fluid and filter change frees up stuck valves in the transmission. sounds alot like you may have a stuck valve body in the transmission to me.pull your transmission fluid dip stick,this is going to sound strange but go with me for a second please, does the fluid smell burnt? do'nt be scared to put it on your finger and sniff it. if it smells like burnt expletitive,then it needs replaced and filter too. just please add lucas transmission treatment to your fluid change,you will not regret it. the treatment [lucas] will cost an extra $11.00 onto the fluid change,trust me, you will not regret it!fluid changes are a must for ford explorers 4x4 don't know why,but they demand baby formula. lucas,i've found is that formula. thank you for choosing fixya.com we are here 24/7 for you 7days

I need to change the transmission fluid, How to do that?


As there is no drain plug for transmission fluid like there is for engine oil, the only way to change the transmission fluid is to remove the transmission cover located under the car. The cover is held on by by something like 18-20 bolts. When you remove the transmission cover you'll need to replace the gasket. It is a good idea to replace the transmission fluid filter when changing the fluid and seeing it is sold with the new gasket for the transmission cover. Hope that helps

Where is the drain plug located on a Volvo 2000


There no tranny drain plug, you must drop the pan to change the fluid and filter. Standard fluid is fne. I believe Dextron3 but double check with the autoparts store (tell them you have a volvo) and they can lookup the correct type of ATF.

Transmission fluid


you should change your fluid at or around every 100,000 miles. also look into changing the transmission filter when you change the fluid. IMPORTANT: if you are having transmission problems like a slipping gear of lack of gear, DO NOT change the fluid as it will most likely free up whatever is making your transmission work currently. take it to aamco and have them diagnose it, only if you are having trouble, otherwise changing the tranny fluid is something you can easily do in your driveway or garage.
