Default How to Change Your Transmission Fluid (Drain & Refill)

Things You'll Need:
  • Jack
  • 2 jack stands
  • Fluid catch pan
  • 1/2-inch drive ratchet
  • Socket set
  • Funnel with plastic tube
  • 3.5 quarts of Genuine Nissan Automatic transmission fluid

1. Drive your 6thgen (04-06) around for 10 to 15 minutes to heat the transmission fluid. The hotter the transmission fluid, the more fluid will come out of the transmission.

2. Open the hood and remove the transmission dipstick. The dipstick in the 2005 Nissan Maxima is located on the passenger-side rear of the engine. Look for the yellow handle that says "automatic transmission fluid." Set the dipstick aside.

3. Jack up the 6thgen and put jack stands behind each front wheel. Make sure that the jack stands are securely under the frame rail on both sides of the Maxima. Lower the jack so that the Maxima rests evenly on the jack stands.

4. Crawl under the driver side of the 6thgen and find the transmission fluid drain plug. The plug on the 6thgen is located on the bottom of the transmission.

5. Slide the fluid catch pan underneath the drain plug on the bottom of the transmission. Unscrew the transmission drain plug with the 1/2-inch drive ratchet and a socket. Finish removing the drain plug with your hand. Wait for all of the transmission fluid to drain out and screw the drain plug back into the bottom of the transmission. Tighten the drain plug with the 1/2-inch drive ratchet and socket.

6. Slide the transmission fluid catch pan out from under the 6thgen. Put the funnel into the dipstick tube located on the passenger side rear of the engine. Pour in three quarts of the "Genuine Nissan Automatic Transmission Fluid". Put the dipstick back in the tube.

7. Crank the engine and it run for about two to three minutes. Check the transmission fluid level on the dipstick. The fluid level should be just a little bit below the full mark. Turn off the engine and remove the dipstick again.

8. Pour in the other half quart of transmission fluid and put the dipstick back in the tube. Close the hood.

9. Jack up the 2 6thgen and pull the jack stands out. Lower the Maxima to the ground.


Tips & Warnings
  • The engine has to be running for a few minutes before you can get an accurate reading of the transmission fluid level on the transmission dipstick.
  • You can buy Genuine Nissan Automatic Transmission Fluid at a Nissan dealership or most auto parts stores.
  • Always wear safety glasses when replacing transmission fluid.
  • Always be careful around any vehicle that is sitting on jack stands. The vehicle could fall off of the jack stands if it is not secured properly.

Hey please read this:

That 7+ qts is for a Flush not drain/refill.

Drain refill is what you want.

How often does this need to be done? I had mine drained and refilled quite a while back. Seems like someone told me it didn't need to be done that often.

Its all based on driving habits. I would just normally check it from time to time. As long as its nice and red... then you are good.

I'd check it every time you're changing your oil assuming you're on a 3K to 5K changing schedule. If it's red or doesn't have the burnt smell, you're probably OK. I do drain / fill on mine every six months or so but then again I drive about 20,000 miles a year in a desert.

I'd done the tranny oil change about 3 times, and all 3 times I get about 4.5 quarts coming out. Just and FYI.

Hey I just wanted to add that the socket needed to remove the drain plug is a 10mm Hex. Also check your oil catch pan for cracks before filling it with nasty old ATF or you will have a big mess to clean up

I just got an 06 Maxima and joined this site, already have seen so many helpful threads! I'm probably going to do this soon because I have read a lot of reviews saying that the transmissions in the 06 Automatic model go bad a lot? I hope I don't run into that soon:/

It's cool to have the warranty, but just don't have CarMAX look your vehicle over.

How about the filter? It looks like a PITA to get to the pan bolts on the left, from driving PoV, side of trans pan as they seem to be under frame....

Drain refill is what you want.
I just did my drain and refill, put 4 Quarts and after 10+ mins of running its not even registering on the dip-stick

I took it off jackstands before checking the fluid, figuring that's how it runs and it would more level and accurate.

Default Re: How to Change Your Transmission Fluid (Drain & Refill)

Took 5 quarts to get it in range; parked level, off jack stands, 20+ minutes of idle and around 5 miles of driving. /shrug.

We had driven about 300 miles prior to draining/refill so it was really warm, maybe that and having front about 2 feet off ground contributed to the "extra" amount.


So anyone should consider getting a Qt or 2 extra "just in case" if, as we do, you live in remote area where a parts store is not just around the corner.

Hope this helps.

Default Re: How to Change Your Transmission Fluid (Drain & Refill)

This is great! When I do mine I usually fill turn on.. Put Reverse.. Drive.. All the way down to 1st 2nd 3rd ect.. Back to D then R again and park check and add what it needs =) never letting the brake go of course =) I find it easier and faster this way plus putting in gears helps getting the fluid on level faster

Why not have carmax look the vehicle over?
