Hello and thank you for using

There is a drain plug on the trans pan to drain the fluid. To put fluid back in, you have to fill through the dipstick tube. I believe a 10 mm bolt holds the dipstick locked in place. It will require Nissan's Matic J fluid. You probably only need 4 to 5 quarts. I put 3 1/2 in and check with truck running and in park. Also after putting fluid in, wait a few before checking, because, since you are putting fluid in through the dipstick, it could give you false readings.

If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask. Thanks Jay!
