There's plenty of info, check the "How-To" threads. I know there's definitely one for the tranny flush and diff fluid...I just did these last week and used the how-to's for reference. Posted via Mobile Device
"Fluid change is pretty scary at first, but actually pretty easy:
Drain the fluid, put in about 6 quarts of new fluid though the measuring dip stick.
Then look in the lower front cowling in the upper left hand corner of the cowling, you will see the transmission cooler with a hose hooked to the lower left corner of the cooler, Pull the hose and stick a drain hose on to the cooler and put the other end of the hose into a gallon jug.
Turn on engine, watch the jug fill up, when it is full, pour in 4 more quarts of new fluid into the transmission, turn on engine, watch fluid until it turns nice and red, shut off engine, add fluid until full, put hose back onto the cooler, drive around the block, checkfluid again and you are done, pretty darn easy!
Self service tranny flush and fill:
1. Remove Plug and drain 6 quarts, or however much comes out of pan.
2. Insert plug and remove stud holding tranny dipstick on passenger side.
3. Immediately refill with same amount of fresh fluid in dipstick hole with narrow funnel.
4. Get suitable size container under tranny cooler return hose at metal line under oil filter
5. Start vehicle (by attendant) and let run until approx 2 quarts comes out at return
hose. (mentioned above)
6. Immediately stop engine, carefully pinch off hose with vise-grip and note amount in
suitable container. (mentioned above)
7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 until all 12 quarts have been poured in system.
8. Retach hose to tranny return line, skid pan and stud to attach dipstick."
I went with the steps from the first set of directions, did a complete drain/flush/fill.
I'm hoping someone can help as I've been ready forums. I took my 2010 SE into the Nissan dealer for a complete fluid change. All good but they said that the ATF didn't need changing as it's a sealed system and never needs changing. This seemed weird at the time but it changes gear fine. I...
so my xterra has been making a ticking at idle. i have heard in the past and usually an oil change took care of it. with that said, it ticked way back at 70k miles like in 2010, had dealer take a look and they said something in bellhousing but didn't seem to be concerned. it was still under...
I have a 2005 Xterra with an Automatic Transmission and just went over 100k miles. I'm running Matic-S, but still have one of the first radiators (21460 EA265). I haven't done the bypass and I've been running fine thus far, thankfully, but I'm going to change out the radiator just to be safe...
so i now have an engine tick after the dealership replaced the secondary timing chains this week. Geez. I know i did not have it before. my oldest son, 12, noticed it in the garage tonight. now, i have run full synthetic most of the trucks life- 69k miles- and they just changed it out to a...
was off roading on some snowpack trail, had it 4h most of the time. I wanted more traction. Stopped the rig (2014 Xterra) shifted into P, turned the knob to 4lo, kept flashing.( as per instructions) I drove forward and kept flashing not engaging. So shifted back into 4h again and decided to...
