hey there, sounds like a cross contamination issue.

Nissan Mechanic: Jake, Nissan Technician replied 6 months ago

Titans, pathfinders, exterras, frontiers all had issues up through 2010 where the transmission cooler line at the bottom of the radiator would crack internally.

This in return mixes the transmission fluid and coolant and ruins the transmission.

To correct the problem you need to flush the cooling system and replace the radiator. Replace the transmission.

no recall, just a warranty extension to 80,000 miles.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
how would I find if its would be a recall issue ? who do I call?
Nissan Mechanic: Jake, Nissan Technician replied 6 months ago

I am telling you it is NOT a recall. There was simply a warranty extension.

What is the year of the vehicle and the mileage?

Nissan Mechanic: Jake, Nissan Technician replied 6 months ago

Nissan will cover repair costs over $2,500 to fix the covered radiator defect if at the time of repair your vehicle exceeds eight years or 80,000 miles, whichever is less, but has less than nine years or 90,000 miles. You will be responsible for paying only $2,500.

If at the time of repair, your vehicle exceeds nine years or 90,000 miles, whichever is less, but has less than 10 years or 100,000 miles, and the repairs cost more than $3,000, Nissan will cover the repair costs over $3,000. You will be responsible for paying only $3,000.

if the vehicle is over 10 years old or has over 100k miles Nissan will not cover any of the repairs.
