Tech the way its ment to be done is to drop it out the bottom...if you have a lift..this way its possible to do it without the removal of the trnny or the cv axles...but if no lift avalible it has to come out the top with the half shafts removed

Could not find thermostat on 1996 nissan pick up. removed top hose found nothing.


Where the top radiator hose attaches to the engine, there should be 2 or 3 bolts to remove to take the hose connection off the engine. The thermostat goes in between the hose connection and the engine. If there isn't a thermostat there then I would guess that it was removed and driven without a thermostat.

How do i change the transmission fluid for my manual Nissan maxima 1996?i cant seem to find any pictures or diagram on how to change it.


manual transmissions should have a drain plug on or near the bottom of the transmission and a fill plug near the top of the transmission. Remove both plugs and drain gear lube into pan. Replace drain plug. Fill with recommended fluid through top hole and then replace that plug.

You jack up the truck, and support it on jack-stands. (no wheel must touch the ground, for safety).
Remove the two front tires for visibility.
Put the tansmission in neutral and apply the handbrake.
Get under the truck and in the area of the support-bearing, mark the position of the driveshaft to the flange, which has 4-bolts.
Remove the 4-bolts.
Pry off the driveshaft with a flat-end screwd-river.
Remove the bolts holding up the support bearing.
Drop it down and pull off the support bearing.
Reverse these procedure for installation.

How do i replace a front wheel drive transmission?


you had better get a manual as it involves removing final drive components, ie drive axles, tie rod ends, splitting ball joints, the trans drops out from under the vehicle, you may have to drop part of the frame, support the engine, removing anything over the trans, give yourself a couple of days if you have never done this

Change transmission instructions


this is for rear wheel drive only front wheel drives require removing axle shat and dropping tie rod end and lower ball joint to get tranny out. If you start this I will give tork setting when I know what you have as it is a lot of work to type this out.

First disconnect the battery, inside the cab pull shifter boot off and remove snap ring to remove shifter, next get a block to go under engine remove drive line bolts and be sure E-brake is set and block the wheels, next put bolts from driveline into the read differential in order so you will be able to find them next disconnect the two starter bolts from the starter and tie starter up as not to allow the starter weight to hang on the wires. Remove two bolts holding slave cylinder on let hang off the side do not lose the shaft out of slave. Next remove the transmission mount bolt out next pull four bolts out of transmission cross member, next remove 5 bolts out of bell housing now get a baggie and a couple of rubber bands and pull drive shaft slide baggie over the transmission tail shaft and put on rubber band on bag to keep from losing fluid move drive shaft out of the way. Next disconnect the Speedo cable and wiring harness the reverse switch is at the top so will have to drop the tranny down to keep from breaking wire. Once you have a gap between the transmission and engine put block under back of engine slide the transmission out let the front drop down then lift up on rear of transmission and slide the cross member out of the way. Next slide tranny out of the way next remove the 6 bolts on the clutch assembly turning each bolt 1 and a ½ turns each till clutch is loose remove the clutch pressure plate and the throw out bearing, remove flywheel take to machine shop and have surfaced, replace the clutch plate pressure plate and the throw out bearing reinstall in reverse if you see any oil leaks replace seals, also replace rear transmission seal now if you don’t it will leak next after it is back together be sure you put new fluid in the transmission and bleed the slave cylinder.
