Question about Nissan 300ZX
Changing trans fluid, how many turns out when adjusting bands on 1987 300zx auto
Transmission Bands are adjusted when you rebuild a trans
They do not wear enough to need adjustment
Two things happen
If you turn the screw the wrong way, parts fall inside the trans
& you can't get it back together
Next-- if you need to adjust the band or bands, it is time for a rebuild, as many many parts are worn, long before the slightest band wear.

Testimonial: "We figured the trans needs to be replaced but someone mentioned the bands and we wanted to see what if we could find out more about it, thanks"
just drop the transmission pan to drain it and the filter is right there in the valve body,DON'T mess the band adjustment,they are only to stop the planetary gears so you can go into reverse,there is no such thing as adjusting bands! that went out with the fifties!

Likely it's better to leave the bands alone. The servos have plenty of travel and unless it was "hammering" into gear (from excessive clearance there) likely adjusting them won't do much. Pan rail is stamped pretty deep...carb cleaner wont clean it up enough to read?
Replacing the filter may help if it's plugged up. If not, don't bother replacing it...problem is internal and filter won't change much of anything.
You can only partially replace the fluid because the converter has no drain. Therefore, use cheap oil and a container of lucas conditioner. If it helps, do the change again at 3,000 miles and use a higher quality fluid along with another lucas.
If you can't get the unit #, buy both filter kits and make note of which is for what transmission. Return the unused one.
