Customer Question

2011 Infiniti ex35
Submitted: 10 months ago via ChiltonDIY.

Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 10 months ago.
Hello. What is your question? I'll do what I can to help.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I need to refill the transmission fluid in my 2011 Infiniti ex35 and there is no dipstick tube to add new ATF
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Is there a way to use the line that goes to the oil cooler?
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 10 months ago.
You will need to add fluid through the overflow drain plug hole using a charging pipe.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
There is no other way?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Does that require some kind of pump?
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 10 months ago.
I am unaware of another way to fill it. FLUID CHANGING PROCEDURE
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 10 months ago.
it does require a pump. It's a hand pump.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Does anyone else carry this charging pipe besides the dealer?
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 10 months ago.
We use a hose on the end of the pump. The pump is a 5.00 pump you get from napa.
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 10 months ago.
I don't even know where to get the "charging pipe" they specify. just a rubber hose will do it as well.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Where can I find the oring that fits into the drain plug?
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 10 months ago.
Your drain plug seal should be ok. If it's not though, napa or any other auto parts store will have a replacement seal for the drain plug. As far as the "charging pipe", just use a piece of rubber hose on the spout of the hand pump. The hand pump comes with some hose on it but it probably won't be long enough so get a couple feet of rubber hose as well.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I'm talking about the fitting that goes from the rubber hose into the drain plug. Would Napa carry that?
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 10 months ago.
Most important though is to make sure that you use the correct fluid. Nissan matic fluid S. if S is not available then you can use J
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 10 months ago.
They might sell an adapter that will fit into that threaded opening, but I would not worry about that. Just get the end of the hose fitted into the opening and pump the fluid slowly. It'll be ok.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Does Napa carry the Nissan matic fluid?
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 10 months ago.
That you will most likely have to get straight from Nissan. We always get it from Nissan and we always use nissan fluid in nissan vehicles.
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 10 months ago.
actually, I got a case of it off Ebay once. It was quite a bit cheaper. If you can wait, check Ebay.
