Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello. How much transmission fluid did you put back in?
What year is it?
So, you put the transmission fluid that came out right back in?
after you added it, and changed your oil, did you start the engine, let it heat up and run the gear selector through all the positions and back up to park, then check the transmission fluid with the engine running?
Ok. Let it warm up and run the selector through all the positions and back up to park while holding your foot on the brake. Then check your fluid level. You must be low.
Oh no... where did you put it?
You poured it in the dipstick tube, right?
Ok.. Good. Transmissions are very very picky. They have to have the perfect amount of fluid. You need to check your fluid level.
That's the goofy thing about nissan. They didn't provide a drain/fill quantity. Their specification for drain and fill is "refill with same volume as drained fluid"
The total capacity is 9 quarts, but that doesn't help you at all. At this point, you should warm it up and check the fluid.
OK. I'll be standing by. Let it warm up at least 5 minutes before checking.
I am almost positive it is passenger side. Let me check
Yes.. passenger side
it's only like a quarter of a quart.. That's all that came out when you pulled the drain plug?
sometimes It's difficult to get a good reading, but keep pulling the dipstick and checking it. run the selector through all the positions. You can't possibly be overfull.
Do you still consistently get an over full reading on the dipstick? Check both sides of the dipstick. One side is often high while the other side is not quite as high.
Ok. Then I have to wonder, did you attempt to drive it before adding the fluid?
Ok, when you pulled the drain plug, only about 1/4 litre came out, and you installed the plug and put that 1/4 litre back in, and now it won't move, right?
but it drove fine before that 1/4 litre was removed, and then immediately put back in?
I am going to have to opt out. I have no idea what could have happened here based on what I have gathered from you so far. If someone else here knows what happened they will reply right here. Sorry I couldn't help you.
