Question about 1996 Nissan Sentra
IF YOU ARE LOSING THAT MUCH FLUID THEN YOU HAVE A SEVERE LEAK, DO NOT PUT OFF HAVING IT CHECKED BECAUSE RUNNING A AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION LOW ON FLUID WILL CAUSE SEVERE DAMAGE PRETTY QUICKLY

Find the big hose that comes out of the top of the radiator and follow
it to the engine and that is where the thermostat is located. My
advice is to be sure to get a factory thermostat and rubber gasket as
it makes installation much easier. I have done it both ways and the
factory one is easier to install.

Dexron-III is what's used in almost all vehicles (except some older fords and chryslers), but you can check the owners' manual to be sure (or call the nearest Nissan dealership).

Hi. The Nissan has been known to have issues with the stock solenoids that are installed by the factory. The transmission also has a OD shift solenoid as well. I would do two things. ONe, check the fluid level if you can. It shouldn't be caped with a plug but, some models have sealed transmissions. If your model has a dip stick, please check the level of the transmission fluid. If the level is ok, i would drop the pan and check the solenoids to make sure that they are working properly. while the pan is dropped, It will be good to visually inspect the bottom of the pan for metal fragments and discolored fluid.If you see anything not normal like black fluid or metal small fragments, this will not be normal. Although, the shift patterns of this model are quite unusual, I would recommend using the instructions above to make sure that this transmission is not malfunctioning.
please rate and have a great weekend..

Do you have a CVT? (Continuosly Variable Transmission) I doubt that you do so if you dont, nissans are known to have hard shift into second gear you mean.(Once the car moves, its already in first gear) so if it shifts fine into other gears, I wouldnt worry too much unless it gets worse.
