Question about 2004 Nissan Sentra

Open Question

2004 nissan sentra automatic transmission fluid question. I was wondering if I would be able to add ANY brand/type of transmission fluid into my transmission. A friend of mine noticed that my transmission fluid was low about a quart when we were checking the oil on my engine. He told me that I should add a quart. The thing is that I don't know if I can just purchase a quart from an autoparts store and add it on with the old fluid still in there or would I have to drain all of the old fluid out before I add any new fluid. And which kind would I put. I have seen fluids that say for toyota, nissan, honda and others that say for transmissions with over 70 k miles. Any information would be helpful. Thanks

SOURCE: I need a replacement key for 1997 Nissan Sentra

Two ways...Nissan puts the key code on a piece of white tape and sticks it on the inside of the glove box door. However, someone could have pulled it off at some point. Check there first. Secondly, the original owners paperwork should have the key code on it. If you are not the original owner, or do not have access to that person, but know the dealer where the car was originally sold, they would have the paperwork on file, they probably do not have a way to cross reference the serial #, so you would likely have to know the original owners name in order for them to look up the archived deal and get the number from the paperwork. The only other suggestion I might have is to get a locksmith to cut you a key. Good luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful! Check the glovebox!

SOURCE: Ive got a 1995 nissan sentra xe 1.6 with a

Dexron 11 went out of production about 1992

If you have to add,common sense tells you
that it is leaking,work on that issue

The brand don't matte,r but the specification does
I would put that question into your search engine
and also check with a dealer,as the current dex is not good
for your vehicle,only the latest GM veh. The Dex/Merc maybe, but the Multi Vehicle
may also be for Asian Vehicles.
Trying to help, but the exact spec I don't know
Also any trans repair shop will happily tell you

What kind or brand of automatic transmission fluid i should use in 2002 nissan sentra


Just standard ATF, Not type F. Actually I have heard you can use any Tranny fluid in Non Ford models but can only use Type F fluid in Ford model vehicles. I used to use type F in my MOPAR with Performance engine and Tranny with no problems. But if you are worried then use ATF or ATF+4 fluid and you should be fine.

04 nissan sentra shifting hard


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.

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).

Transmission fluid change intervals


Ya but if nissan planted filter's in there tansmission's then they would grow,right?NISSAN does not install filter's in the tran's.It is a permanent screen and luckily for people all I have to do is undo the plug from the pan and drain while hot, screw the screw the plug back in and funnel your new fluid back in to the tran from the dip stick tube(my 04 sentra 1.8s 4speed automatic takes 5 quart's but holds 6-type D nissan fluid from dealer,change about every 15 to 20 thousand miles to keep it clean and thin.Remember trans fluid is petroleum and get's hot burn's and thicken's making restriction's on rotating metal).My car has over 90,000miles and shift's perfect
