I used seach and couldent find anything, but I was wondering if there is a how to on changing/checking automatic transmission fluid. I looked in the engine bay and coulden't find a dipstick.
That is a really good reason. You just may be right on that one!AZ-Ted said:My only guess as to why they bolted it in is so that people didn't add an ATF fluid that wasn't compliant with Nissan Matic J specs. I "lost" the dipstick bolt when I did a drain and fill (with Amsoil synthetic ATF).
Amsoil's site says 11qts for the AT. And I think the Nissan Service Manual says 10 7/8 qts, so basically 11.bwarren228 said:I don't remember right off how many it holds, but start with about 3, then check the level w/ it running. You may have to adjust the level from there a little.
Nice. Thanks for pointing that out. I missed it.howvood said:In the repair manual, it indicates that after removing the bolt, check the fluid with the dipstick tab turned 180 degrees from its original position and depress it fully. If you don't do it this way, it may indicate that the level is lower than it really is.
