HI, this is new wonderful idea for us to make money. I tell all of my customers to follow the manufacture maintenance schedule. Nissan doesn't have a recommended service interval for flushing or changing the transmission fluid in your Sentra. I would recommend it to my customer if they did a lot of driving and had high mileage you don't. I would recommend it if they pulled a trailer, I hope you don't. I would recommend it if you live in a hot climate and do a lot of city driving. If none of those apply i would recommend waiting till your 97k or 105k maintenance service.

It should be done, usually around 30,000 miles or 24 months, whitchever comes first. Shop around, $120, I think is a little high.

How many miles can you can run with the oil transmission?


I couldn't find the manual for the 2005, the 2006 says the automatic transmission should be inspected every 24,000 km (15,000 mi) and changed every 60,000 km (37,500 mi).
The manual transmission should be inspected every 48,000 km (30,000 mi) and has no recommended change within 180,000 km (112,500 mi) where the maintenance schedule ends.

Here is the owners manual for the 2006, the maintenance schedule is section 6 almost the very end.

Need to service trans on my 05 lancer can you flush trans


On automatic transmission that has over 100,000 miles,you should not flash it. DO NOT got to a shop that use re-circulate machine to flush out the transmission.

Base on the 2005 production year,you should have only 60,000 on the transmission.

The correct method is to purchase the transmission filter,pan gasket kit + transmission fluid and a trans line cleaning fluid.

Get the complete kit from your auto parts supply store and do the drain,cooler flush and filter change.

Recycle your old transmission fluid at your part store or recycling center.

Do you have an Automatic tranny With 4 speed (AW4), or an Automatic With 5 speed (AW5) With a "Flush & Change" there is no reason to drop pan and change filter...the flush and change does it without removing any parts. I would stick with your "in-town guy"!
