Start the engine and let it idle for four minutes. This will help to remove as much loose particles from the transmission as possible Turn off the engine. Raise the front of the vehicle using a floor jack, and support the vehicle with two jack stands Apply the emergency brakes and block the rear wheels with two wooden blocks .Place a large drain pan underneath the transmission pan. Loosen the front and side mounting bolts from the transmission pan using a crisscross pattern. Then remove the bolts. Use a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket.Loosen the rear mounting bolts from the transmission pan about 4 turns each. Pry the transmission pan open at the front using a screwdriver and let the oil drain onto the drain pan. Hold the transmission pan from underneath, using a shop rag as you remove the remaining pan mounting bolts. Separate the transmission pan from the transmission, and tilt it over the drain pan to remove the remaining oil. Discard the transmission pan gasket. This is were the filter will be located remove and replace filter and then. Clean the transmission pan with spray carburetor cleaner and a shop rag.Install a new gasket over the transmission pan flange Set the transmission pan in place and start the pan mounting bolts by hand. Start tightening the transmission pan bolts in a crisscross pattern, a little at a time, until all the bolts are tight. Use the ratchet, ratchet extension and socket. Just tighten the bolts enough to create a seal between the pan and the transmission to avoid damaging the pan gasket.

Hi,sometimes this can be becouse the filter and transmition fluid need changed,people tend to ignore this area but its just as importent as changing the engine oil and filter,also there is a additive you can use that helps to make things run better inside the transmition its cald,(xado)you can find this on ebay,I drive a mercedes and always use this product it dose work.

I bought my 05 infiniti g35 about 3 years ago, i never had change the transmition fluid. i can not find the filter, i have read that infiniti do not have a transmition filter is that correct?


If your car does have a transmission filter, it will be behind the trans pan. You can remove the trans pan and look but you will have to get sealant and reseal the pan.

i think you need to have your transmition checked , your transmition may need a serious overhaul ,you may have electric soliniods inside transmition that are ceasing due to not having oil changes regularly , but first thing you may try , is to have filter replaced and oil and see if this helps , if you transmition filter is not reachable by removing oil pan , then gearbox will need to come out .

Can i change a transmition filter from an old transmition with out ruining the transmition


ToWTO be honest you can do this ,but it is not recomended nor a good idea unless it is a absolute last resort if you do do this I would make sure it is drained of old fluid and only use it till you can get a new filter they are not expensive

When changing my transmition fiter and fluid I removed the old filter but the orange ring around the top of the filter stayed lodged inside of the transmition. I couldn't put the new filter on so I left...


You should really get the old orange gasket/ring out and replace it. I'm glad you are trying to do this yourself because this is a very simple process. Change the filter or clean it with a Gumout type solution. Hope this helps and once again I'm glad your doing this. Transmission tuneups are very important to the vehicle. Good luck.

Transmition slip


Change the fluid and the filter and see if that helps, if it continues to slip then the forward clutch pack is worn out and the trans will need to be torn down and repaired. :)
