The engine oil and oil filter is the #1 priority to replace. Also, replace the two radiator hoses as they are probably rotting from the inside out, and fairly easy to replace. A full tune up would also be good, parts like the distrubutor cap, rotor, spark plugs and the air filter. Then, when you get the car going on the road, you will be able to tell whether other things need to be changed also.

Transmission fluid is pour out near the back of the transmission on my automatic 2.4 liter 1990 nissan stanza. what possible problems does that tell me about?

One of your axle shaft seals or the speed sensor o-ring is leaking. Those are the only three things back there that can be leaking. Have them all checked out and replaced as needed.

Occassionally it appears that my transmission is slipping at about bout 5 - 15mph it slipp for a slip second enough for my RPM to rise and than everything is ok again. is that a transmission problem?

well first check you transmission fluid if its low add fluid. and check undercar for small spots of fluid. transmission fluid is red in color. if its not a fluid problem try and remember if you are on a up grade or down grade the next time this happens. and yes when your transmission slipps you RMP will naturaly rise because the motor is not engauged with the tranny. and if your fluid is fine you may need to have a diagnostic test run to see if you have a sensor going bad on it. and if the fluid is low but you have no spots of fluid in driveway. it may not be leaking just low the car is over 10 yrs old and may have just used a little fluid over a few years. i hope this helps...

How do you calibrate the spark plugs for a 91 nissan stanza

Nissan recommends only NGK ZFR5E-11 spark plugs for your 1991 Stanza and they already come pre-gapped in the box. They might cost a little more than bargain brand spark plugs, but your stanza will definitely run much better with OEM plugs.

Acutally there is 3 position settings for the transmission selector, the power setting which changes the shift points higher ,more rpm's, center position basic auto selection the transmission selects the best driving gears based on your habits, and the comfort mode which shifts the transmission easily and smoothly, no high rev shifts, best for good fuel mileage, but if you need to get on it it will go.

!992 nissan stanza standard trans fluid

If your referring to the manual transmission where you do the shifting. Your going to be using gear lube, not to be confused with transmission fluid. Which is red in color, they are not interchangeable transmission fluid is only for automatic transmissions. Gear lube is much heavier in weight, you want to get a gear lube 80-90 weight this lube is perferred for your vehicle
