How many quarts of oil and what type of oil does a 1996 nissan altima take

4-5 quarts of 5w30, on average. It will depend on motor size...A v-6 uses more oil than a v-4. When in doubt, put 3.5 quarts in, then start measuring with the dipstick to avoid over-filling with oil, as this can blow a gasket, worst case scenario... 5W 30 Synthetic Oil Bing images

Where do i add transmission fluid

Under the hood, look for a dipstick toward the rear of the engine, the dipstick for transmittion is usually red. Once you pull the dipstick, you add the fluid in that cavity. make sure you dont overfill it, so just add small amounts at a time.

Want to know how to do a full fluid change on a 2005 altima's transmission

If your vehicle has the CVT for the transmission, you must use the proper fluid first off. (Nissan NS-2)

There should be a drain plug on the transmission. These transmissions dont have a cooler lline that runs through the radiator to cool the fluid like older vehicle, some of them have a cooler built into the transaxle assembly that actually has coolant running through it. Below i have included a list of the various transmissions used in this vehicle, be sure to use the proper fluid or this will ruin the transmission very quickly and will void any warranty (if still available). You can also check the handle on the transmission dipstick, there should be a label stating which fluid to use.

*Note: Do Not Overfill the fluid, any slight overfill will cause poor operation of the transmission. If there is a way for you to measure how much you drain out, i would strongly recommend doing so, and be sure to put that same amount back in, as to reduce the chance of overfilling.

Hope this helps...

I changed my ,02 roadkings trans. fluid --only 16oz drained out --i had the bike level--put 20oz back in --no reading on dipstick--do you check oil with bike level or on stand--also do you measure level...

Check the level of the transmission lube with the bike standing straight up. The transmission holds between 20 and 24 ounces of oil. I always put 24 ounces in them. It should check on the dipstick without the dipstick screwed in. Do not overfill.

Good Luck
