I do mines every year only because I know how much I drive within a given year. I hold off a little longer based on the Fluid Color. Right now its red like Italian Icy's loll.

Hey Owen... let me know if you want me to save the videos to the my6thgen.org photobucket account. You can just email them to me if you want to keep your videos private.

Alright, well I did the tranny drain and fill. I got 4 and 1/8 quartz out of the tranny. Not bad. I got a big tub, got a used motor oil empty container, and measured out 5 quarts. I marked every quart and once I drained the tranny I got that amount. Then put the screw back in and added the oil. Simple as that. It was pretty easy. If you are going to do this buy at least 5 quarts.

Last place that did yours must have overfilled it because
For drain and fill on the 5 speed only 3.5-4 quarts will come out thats the normal figures anymore than that means it was overfilled

Oh and these figures are with the car cooled down about 15 minutes after driving for about 5 minutes to circulate the fluid.

Sad to say it was the first time I did the oil change. I thought about that too, but I called Alhmabra Nissan here in LA and they said anywhere from 3.5 to 4.25, which is what I got. That's why I also wanted to measure it, to see exactly how much came out.
