One sure way to tell, is if your transmission fluid is not cherry red. Its supposed to be a bright red color. If its not, then you should have it flushed out and replaced. Good luck.

Troubleshooting oil leaks on Nissan Altima


    Your Altima uses a variety of different oils to lubricate various components. Normally, these oils won't leak. But when you do find a leak, you will almost always need to have extensive work done on your Altima to correct the problem. However, before you can replace anything, you need to know what kind of oil it is
    Check for brown or black oil leaking on the ground or on the side of the engine. This is engine oil. It lubricates critical engine components. A leak means that an engine seal has failed and needs to be replaced

    Check for red oil. Red oil is trans fluid. On your Altima, it most likely means that you have a rear main seal on the transmission that has failed. However, any seal on the transmission is possible. Transmission leaks need to be fixed immediately. A transmission can fail catastrophically in 20 minutes of driving if there is insufficient oil in the transmission

    Check for amber or brown oil leaking from your trans. This is transmission gear oil found only on the manual version of the Nissan Altima.

Nisson Altima will not shift out of park. Stuck in the parking lot... can anyone help ASAP???


Change your brake light fuse, if it's blown. If that doesn't fix the problem, change your gear selector shift lock solenoid. That's what has to move, for you to be able to shift from park.

Can I change the trans fluid for Jetta TDI at 70K miles?


If all is working fine, and the transmission has never been overheated, an oil change around 50,000 miles ( 80,000 kms ) and the filter will do. Depends on the driving conditions and loads carried.
So now please do change it immediately.

I have 97000 mile on my 05 Nissan Altima 3.5 SER the timing chain is making noise if I went over 7500 mile on synthic oil would that make my timing chain go bad the dealership said that is why it is making...


That's a load of **** they are feeding you.The timing chain tentioner has a fault and not tentioning the chian.I think you have done a good thing keeping it on synthetic oil.That causes less wear on moving parts than other oils.
