Default How to Change Your CVT Transmission Fluid (Flush)

Read This Thread First Before Moving Forward: http://my6thgen.org/f7/when-should-i-drain-refill-flush-my-cvt-transmission-3153/#post53356

So I finally put this together for you 2007-2008 6thgenners. This writeup is for a FLUSH.

For Drain/Refill Check Here: http://my6thgen.org/f107/how-change-your-cvt-transmission-fluid-drain-refill-3264/#post54792

Here is a high-level summary of the whole process:

1. Drive your car for about 10 min.
2. You leave the car running in park.
3. Disconnect the CVT fluid line coming from the radiator, going into the CVT. You will let this line drain into your bucket for disposal.
4. Refill with new CVT fluid at CVT fluid charging pipe, with the engine running at idle speed.
5. Refill until new CVT fluid comes out from CVT fluid cooler hose, you disconnected in step 3.
6. Reconnect everything, and your finished. Takes about 25 min, and 11 quarts of NS-2 Nissan CVT fluid.

Now on the actual procedure

Remember to only use OEM Nissan Fluid. Specs below:

CVT AUTO
Type: NISSAN CVT Transmission Fluid
Part #: 999MP-NS200P
Price: $14.95/qt (You need approx. 11 quarts)
Order Link: http://www.mynismo.com/products/?id=4401


Orginal Write-up Credits: dagreek from http://www.nissanclub.com/

Tools/supplies Needed:
  • Pliers
  • 10mm Allen Wrench, T-handle
  • Collection pan to collect the used transmission fluid
  • Flat Head Screwdriver
  • Transmission Fluid Funnel
  • Approx. 11 Quarts of NISSAN Matic-D Automatic Transmission Fluid
Experience needed: I would say some experience working on cars, at least be able to do your own oil changes before you try to do this. You will also need one person around to help.

Step 1: Drive car around for about 10 minutes to warm everything up. Park it, run through all the gears (P, R, N, D, and then back to P) and leave the engine running. Pull the transmission dip stick out, wipe clean, insert back in but rotate 180 degrees and push all the way down. Pull back out and check the level (remember where it is so you can refill back to same location, should be at the second notch). This is also where you will add transmission fluid.

Click the image to open in full size.

Step 2: Raise the front end of the vehicle somehow. I have small ramps I use for changing my oil so I drove up onto these. Turn off the car.

Step 3. With the dip stick pulled out. Place a collection pan underneath the transmission drain plug. Using the hex screwdriver/tool, unscrew the drain plug. Notice that it doesn’t take much force to unscrew this so don’t over tighten when putting back on. Allow all of the fluid to drain, I left it to drain for about 15 min.

Step 4. Screw the drain plug back on. I think you can replace the o-ring on the drain plug but I didn’t do this.

Step 5. Measure how much fluid you drained out by using your container that you marked off at 1 qt. I drain roughly 4.5 qts. Add the same amount of fluid you took out back into the transmission through the recharging pipe (same place you pulled the dip stick out) using your funnel.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The steps from here are part of a flushing process. If you just wanted a regular drain/refill, you can stop here.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 6. Remove the wheel well splash guards from the driver’s side wheel (be careful with the tabs holding these on, easy to break). Take your time a pry them off slowly with a flat head screw driver. Remove to reveal the transmission fluid inlet port (where fluid comes in from the radiator).

Click the image to open in full size.

Step 7. Using your pliers, squeeze and slide off the hose clamp holding the tube onto the inlet port.

Click the image to open in full size.

Step 8. Place the tube you remove into your 1in. diameter clear plastic tube. Direct it into your container marked at 1 qt.

Step 9. Have a friend start your car. Allow it to run until you have removed 1 qt. of fluid and then turn the car off.

Click the image to open in full size.

Step 10. Add a qt. of new fluid back into the transmission (to replace the qt. you flushed out).

Step 11. Repeat steps 9 and 10 until you’ve collected a replaced roughly 6 qts. of fluid. It start to get clean around 5 qts. I did an extra one for good measure.

Step 12. Reconnect your hose to the transmission inlet port and using your pliers, squeeze the hose clamp and slide it back onto the hose. This is the hardest part of the whole thing, trying the get that stupid clamp back on.

Step 13. Start the car and let it run for a minute. Go around and check for any leaks.

Step 14. Lower the car down. Run it back through all the gears and check the fluid level just as before. Adjust the fluid as needed.

Step 15. Place the splash guards back on and that’s it. You are done.

Correct me if i am wrong, but dont you need more that 6 quarts worth of fluid to do this? Wouldnt you need to buy 10-12 quarts? Also, what is the red tube (in the pic with the dirty fluid being flushed out)

For a Flush Yes.......

This is for drain/refill.

If you do steps 6-12, doesnt this become more of a flush than a simple drain and refill When i hear drain and refill, i think of an oil change.

There are actually two procedure's for it. Most people do the first 1 to make sure that all the old oil is out. That's why. Now if you want the easy way out... you can follow procedure # 2.

Procedure # 1

1. Drive your car for about 10 min.
2. You leave the car running in park.
3. Disconnect the CVT fluid line coming from the radiator, going into the CVT. You will let this line drain into your bucket for disposal.
4. Refill with new CVT fluid at CVT fluid charging pipe, with the engine running at idle speed.
5. Refill until new CVT fluid comes out from CVT fluid cooler hose, you disconnected in step 3.
6. Reconnect everything, and your finished. Takes about 25 min, and 11 quarts of NS-2 Nissan CVT fluid.

Procedure 2

1. Remove drain plug from CVT oil pan.
2. Drain fluid
3. Reinstall drain plug in oil pan
4. Fill CVT with tranny fluid at the charging pipe
5. Drive CVT for 10 min
6. Check fluid level.
7. Add fluid if necessary.

Anyone know if changing the fluid yourself will void the extended warranty that Nissan gave to CVT owners several months ago?

Default Re: How to Change Your CVT Transmission Fluid (Flush)

CHECKING CVT FLUID

Fluid level should be checked with the fluid warmed up to 50 to 80C (122 to 176F). The fluid level check procedure is as follows:

1. Check for fluid leakage.

2. With the engine warmed up, drive the vehicle in an urban area.
When ambient temperature is 20C (68F), it takes about 10
minutes for the CVT fluid to warm up to 50 to 80C (122 to
176F).

3. Park the vehicle on a level surface.

4. Apply parking brake firmly.

5. With engine at idle, while depressing brake pedal, move shift
selector throughout the entire shift range.

6. Pull out the CVT fluid level gauge from the CVT fluid charging
pipe after pressing the tab on the CVT fluid level gauge to
release the lock.

7. Wipe fluid off the CVT fluid level gauge. Insert the CVT fluid
level gauge rotating 180 from the originally installed position,
then securely push the CVT fluid level gauge until it meets the
top end of the CVT fluid charging pipe.

CAUTION:
When wiping away the CVT fluid level gauge, always use
lint-free paper, not a cloth rag.

8. Place the selector lever in P or N and make sure the fluid
level is within the specified range.

CAUTION:
When reinstalling CVT fluid level gauge, insert it into the
CVT fluid charging pipe and rotate it to the original installation
position until it is securely locked.

Guys, i know im beating a dead horse here but i still dont get how you only need 6-7 quarts of the cvt fluid if you follow all the steps. If im doing my math right and thinking straight (its been a hell of a week), you would need at least 10 quarts. Am i not reading the instructions correctly?
