Use NISSAN Type Matic J ATF, factory fluid is the best way to go, other types may cause damage to your tranmission or poor shift performance

Transmision automatica se queda sin fuerza

Revise los niveles de liquido en transmission, si estan bien o recientemente ha hecho un cambio de fluidos y filtro, podria tratarse de un problema con el "convertidor de torque" o valvulas de solenoide defectuosas, estas ultimas se encuentran internamente dentro de la transmission.

Which transmission oil to use in a terrano 1996

Being that we have the Nissan Pathfinder (closest vehicle here), which like my 2001 Nissan Xterra uses Nissan Matic-D, you can use a Nissan Matic-D (or J), or a compatible fluid such as Valvoline MaxLife or Castrol TransMax Import Multi-Vehicle

As you will only get part of the fluid out We would use the exact correct fluid and not an aftermarket brand.

RECOMEND: Sight unseen.
Stick with k-matic for the 5-speed automatic.

Hope this tip helps.
