Default Transmisson Fluids

IMPORTANT SERVICE INFORMATION (5SPD AUTO)

If the 5-speed automatic transmission in the Maxima (A34) requires service, a new type of automatic transmission fluid MUST be used. The new fluid is Nissan Matic-K.

The New Nissan Matic-K
  • Nissan’s new 5-speed automatic transmission contains internal components that require the use of Nissan Matic-K automatic transmission fluid only!
  • Only Nissan Matic-K (P/N 999MP-MTK00P) is specially formulated to meet the very specific requirements of this new RE5F22A transmission.
CAUTION:
  • Do NOT use any other A/T fluid for this transmission, use only Nissan Matic-K.
  • Use of any other automatic transmission fluid (such as Nissan Matic D / Nissan Matic J / Nissan CVT Fluid NS-2) will cause deterioration in driveability and transmission durability.
If this new transmission is damaged by the use of any other A/T fluid type, it may not be covered by NISSAN warranty.


ATF Level Indicator

  • The Fluid Level Indicator (dipstick) for the new 5-speed A/T is different than the 4-speed
  • A/T Fluid Level Indicator (see Figure 1).
  • To help prevent accidental use of ATF other than Nissan Matic-K, the 5-speed A/T Fluid
Level Indicator is:
  • Secured to the Fluid Level Tube with a “built-in” Plastic Retaining Clip.
  • Equipped with a Fluid Warning Label that shows the required use of Nissan Matic-K
  • T use the 5-speed A/T Fluid Level Indicator, the Plastic Retaining Clip must be pssed/released
  • After the ATF level has been checked, make sure the Fluid Level Indicator is firmly atched to the tube.



PARTS INFORMATION
  • Nissan Matic-K 999MP-MTK00P
Manual Transaxle fluid (ATF) 6SPD
For Flush: 2 3/8 Quarts Genuine NISSAN Manual Transmission Fluid (MTF) HQ Multi 75W-85

  • After the ATF level has been checked, make sure the Fluid Level Indicator is firmly atched to the tube.



PARTS INFORMATION
  • Nissan Matic-K 999MP-MTK00P
Manual Transaxle fluid (ATF) 6SPD
For Flush: 2 3/8 Quarts Genuine NISSAN Manual Transmission Fluid (MTF) HQ Multi 75W-85



Automatic Transaxle fluid (ATF) 4SPD

For Flush: 9 3/4 Quarts of NISSAN Matic "D" ATF

Default Re: Transmisson Fluids

A flush is basically the same as a drain-and-refill except you multiply it by various times. This is done to remove every single bit of old dirty oil in the transmission.

Flush takes more time and is more expensive because it exchanges more fluid. You just basically dump out your old oil, replace filter, refill it and drive the car for a few miles. Then drain and fill again and repeat the steps..

Here’s the logic on a FLUSH:

1st Drain and fill, you will have about 66% dirty fluid remaining.
2nd Drain and fill, you will have about 44% dirty fluid remaining.
3rd Drain and fill, you will have about 29% dirty fluid remaining.
4th Drain and fill, you will have about 19% dirty fluid remaining.
5th Drain and fill, you will have about 13% dirty fluid remaining.
6th Drain and fill, you will have about 9% dirty fluid remaining.

And so on….

I would only recommend drain and refills for your max. But if you really feel you need to do a flush after a certain amount of miles, then feel free.
