SOURCE: what grade oil goes into a 1998 isuzu kb280dt le gearbox

Clutch adjustment is ussually the cause of such a problem.... oil grade should not have a bearing on the issue; try to lenghen your adjustment rod a little more. For now you can change your shifting habits...Put the trans in first before cranking the engine and before coming to a stop a light...youll soon get the feel of at what speed it will drop right into first, usually just before coming to a stop.

I am confused - I have a simple query and logged on to your site as you offered free advice! Do you not offer the service as described on your website. I definitely don't need a team of experts to answer my very simple question.

SOURCE: i need to refill my gearbox oil of my 1996 model nissan sentra

I assume its a standard transmission.
Should be a threaded plug on the top of trans , or 1/2 way up on the side.
If auto trans , add fluid through dipstick tube.

Where is the filler plug for a Nissan n16 manual gearbox and what viscosity should I use

filler plug is about 1/2 way up the side pf the box and is filled to thread level
as for the oil, it is in the owners hand book, on line if you go google
most now recommend a straight mineral oil around 30 grade but I find that a 80 grade oil is better as it stops gear wear under heavy load applications
be guided by the makers recommended oil and viscosity

I have a nissan datsun 1991 ute the column change is sloppy sometimes i cant find reverse especially when the ute has been running for a while

Either the linkage is worn to excess or / and the gearbox.
Why not drain the gearbox oil(when hot) and put a slightly heavier grade oil in along with a goid oil additive (lucas).

How long will it take for a Nissan Primera gearbox to knock if its put wrong gear box oil

A gearbox will not "knock" in the usual sense, that is said of an engine running on petrol which is a lower octane than it needs. The sound is more of a light rattle or pinging.

If your manual gearbox has had the wrong oil in it for only a week or 2 and has not been thrashed, it is unlikely it has been damaged at all. Just drain and refill with the right grade.

If an auto gearbox, using the wrong oil can cause damage, as it may be far too thick. Drain and refill 2-3 times with the correct grade, running the engine until warm, but not driving around, in between. Then go for a drive without thrashing the car, and see if you can notice anything abnormal.

If you can, take it to an auto trans shop for advice.
