Unfortunately, that isn't enough. There is no way to get the water out of the transmission once it is in there short of disassembly. Water does not compress and therefore will not work where hydraulic pressures are needed. You didn't say HOW you accidentally got the coolant into the transmission. That may be of SOME help, but chances are you are in for a major transmission repair (or replacement) bill.

SOURCE: check transmission fluid in 2oo5 nissan pathfinder

To check the transmission fluid, the dipstick is on the passenger side of the engine and is locked down by a 10 mm bolt. The transmission takes Matic S fluid. Matic J that is on your dipstick has been discontinued and Matic S is the fluid to use.

Thanks Jay!

SOURCE: I am trying to fill my transmission fluid on a

A 5-speed Nissan Pathfinder uses a different type of transmission fluid from an automatic; therefore Dexron II is NOT okay. This vehicle uses "gear oil" --- specifically 75W-90 GL-4 if you have low mileage. 80W-90 or 85W-140 can be used if you are up there in mileage (closing in on 200K?).

This type of service needs to be performed from underneath the vehicle.

If you have a set of ramps, now would be a good time to get them out of the tool shed. Exercise care in driving up the ramps as they can be tricky with stick shift vehicles. Once on the ramp, put wheel chocks on the rear wheels, put the e-brake on, and if possible, keep it in gear (I use reverse).

Even without ramps, there is sufficient ground clearance from this SUV for you to check your transmission fluid. But then again, the more working room, the better.

On the transmission housing, you will find two plugs. One is at the bottom (drain plug), and one is higher up on the driver's side (fill plug). If you wish to add gear oil, simply open up the fill plug on the upper driver's side. If gear oil starts to seep out, don't bother adding any --- it's full. If no fluid comes out, stick your pinky in the hole and try to reach down and see if you can touch the top of the fluid level. Top it up, then. Gear oil usually comes in quart containers that have a long, pointed tip that allows you to "squirt" the stuff into the fill hole. Convenient, no? If the fluid level is so low that you can't even touch it, you might want to consider draining what's left (why add new gear oil to old sludgy gear oil? Otherwise, fill it up until it starts to seep out of the hole; then screw the fill plug back in.

I hope this helps; take care of your SUV.

You should go right away to a nissan dealership. Your Trans cooler may be mixing your coolant and transmission fluid. After time your transmission will start shifting hard or have a delayed shift. you could also drain some trans fluid out yourself and see if it looks like your coolant. It will look pink and possibly foamy.

before you go any further you have to very carefully examine the coolant and trans fluid for cross contamination.i have never seen these transmissions have problems unless this has occurred and it is a common problem .what happens is oil cooler inside of radiator fails and coolant leaks into trans fluid and vise versa.the coolant causes corrosion on internal trans parts and they malfunction.remove radiator cap and reservoir cap and look very closely for oily jelly like residue.drain approx one quart out of tran into a clear container.if it appears at all murky,pink or separates after it sits then this is your issue.contact nissan as they have extended the warranty on radiator and tans issue would be covered as collateral of radiator failure.let me know what you find.

My 1992 Nissan Stanza has transmission leak.


The stop leak treatment may help the seals to seal better but I would get the car to a good transmission shop since it has that many miles on it. The fluid probably needs flushed out and changed by this time.
