2005 ALTIMA, MUST I USE NISSAN TRANS FLUID OR CAN I USE SOMETHING FROM THE PARTS STORE?

Hello!

Here is what is printed in the service specifications for transmission fluid on your vehicle:

Recommended fluid 4 SPD: Nissan Matic "D" (Continental U.S. and Alaska) or Canada Nissan Automatic Transmission Fluid
NOTE: Dexron III/Mercon or equivalent may be used.

Recommended fluid 5 SPD: Nissan Matic "K"
NOTE: Using Automatic Transmission fluid other than Genuine Nissan ATF will cause deterioration in driveability and automatic transmission durability, and may damage the automatic transmission, which is not covered by the NISSAN new vehicle limited warranty

Hope this is helpful; if so, please click my accept button! thanks!
