I am trying to fill my transmission fluid on a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder 4x4 with a 5 speed manual transmission-where is the fill hole located? What fluid should I use? Is Dextron II ok?


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.

Im a single mom and dont have a owners manual for my voyager, that was given to me. i want to make sure im putting the right fluids in. can you help? it doesnt tell me on the dipsticks like some...


Engine oil for cold climates 5w-30. Warmer climates 10w-30. Any Auto-zone parts store person at the counter would be more than helpful choosing the correct fluids for your vehicle.

Very difficult at times to get into gear on my 2007 grand vitara. At times when in gear cannot change gear at all but other times moves through gears freely. What is the problem?


if this is an automatic transmission, check your transmission fluid level. The fluid should be red, if it is orange/ brown colour and smells burnt. Will need to be changed. Take it somewhere to have fluid and filter changed. If you are mechanically inclined try flushing the fluid through the transmission. Disconnedt the driver side transmission cooling rubber line from bottom of rad. place the end of the hose in a large container. Put parking brake on, turn on vehicle and put into drive. the transmision fluid with pump out into container. Watch how fast it pumps out. When the fluids stops coming out, shut off engine and put back into park. Next drain remaining fluid out of transmission pan. There is 9/19 or 14mm bolt for this on bottom side of transmission. When this is done, refill transmission and repeat. This time you are flushing all the extra **** out of the transmission. Again check thre flow rate of the fluid coming out. It will come out faster this time. When finished replace transmission fluid again with new clean fluid. This should help free your shifting. When starting the engine for the first time. Put the brake on and put the shifter in 1st for a few seconds , then 2nd and drive, then reverse. This will also allow the fluid to begin to circulate.
If the transmission fluid was dark brown or black it would be wise to replace filter when you finish flushing transmission. To do this you have to disconnect the 4 wheel drive shaft to get pan off. Try just flushing the transmission first. I will look again in couple of days for your reply.

Can get all forward gears but can not put it into reverse gear unless the car has been warmed up for ten minutes


The seals inside your transmission are bad and leaking by and they don't start to seal until the tranny fluid warms up and swells the seals. To temporarily fix this problem you can pour some brake fluid into your transmission fluid. This will swell the seal in the transmission and it should start working again. This is only a temporary fix however, eventually you will ned to replace or rebuild your tranny. I used this method on a turbo trans 350 and got a year of service out of it that way before I had to replace the tranny. Just do not put too much brake fluid into the tranny, I would recommend one or two capfuls to start with.

Second gear grinds?????????????


There Should Be A Plug On The Side Of The Transmission. You'll See The Head Of A Bolt On The Side Toward Top, Or Middle. One On Very Bottom Is The Drain. Now Just Look For Another Similar Plug. Make Sure That Year And Model Doesn't Take Automatic Transmission Fluid. If It Doesn't Go Away. Time To Have Rebuilt. Syncro's Are Going. Good Luck
