maxvq wrote Hey everyone I was wondering if anyone has a step by step procedure of how to properly change the transmission oil on a 1997 nissan maxima I cant seem to locate the oil filter or the drain plug and Im hoping someone cal help me Thanks With most transmissions you must drop the pan to change the fluid. Often there is a filter located inside there. There is no filter like you would find for

There should be a plug located on the bottom of the trans pan. This will only drain about 3 to 4 QTS of fluid. Check your book on how much it holds. The trans filter is a metal screen and is a bugger to get out and clean. You can have a flush done at a dealer that uses genuine nissan fluid or other shops do it too for about 125.00. I would have it flushed so you can get all the fluid changed. Or another

NISSAN MAXIMA Transmission Filter & Oil Change Question

So I bought my 01 Max with 87K kms on it (about 55K Miles). I didnt know the last time that all of the fluids were changed so I went out & bought some Mobil 1 Higher Mileage Valvoline ATF transmission Fluid & some Prestone Coolant.

NISSAN MAXIMA I Ticking when I accelerate. Hoses water pump oil or transmission

I have recently been getting a ticking noice while accelerating. I had regular oil changes and my antifreeezecoolant has been fine. Could it be something with the transmission I have 82350 miles on my 2002 Infinity I35.

Id start with replacing the fuel filter as you said you dont know what the previous owner ran. For 100 what does the fuel system professionally cleaned include Im a big fan of BG products. I highly recommend using th BG44K just as a part of your regular preventative maintenance. - Scott

The fuel filter was replaced at 32000mi I should be okay running BG44K with 9000 mi on the filter or not Will ask more details about the fuel system cleaning

With your 2004 stock air filter (I assume) is hard to believe the MAF sensor gets dirty to a point where it causes pinging... A lot of us have reported the noise occurs more frequently when it is warm out. If it is the MAF I doubt the variation in air temperature will make so much difference. my .02

RSG wrote I might have the same problem described on my I35 with 40k miles... Basically there is a rattling sound on randomly not very noticeable though during acceleration especially on hills. I have to turn off the AC music before I could hear it. Maybe a loose part under the hood Sound will not come on at neutualpark even at high RPMs... How should we start troubleshooting That is exactly the same

NISSAN MAXIMA IV 97 Maxima transmission advice

My 97 SE currently has just over 310000 miles on it and has given more trouble in the last 10K than it did the 100K before that. Typical stuff though like a alternator power steering pump egroxygen sensor trouble (FINALLY got it solved and inspected) and replaced the exhaust under the car and muffler. Im not fussing and I couldnt have asked for better service thus far. I have had the trans fluid drained

It lowers transmission fluid temperatures (always a good thing) and can help smooth out shifting. Its noticeably smoothed downshifts and initial shifts into reverse (less delay) on my Pathfinder. A Magnefine in-line filter installed on the transmission cooler return line also might be a wise addition to help keep the fluid free of wear material and other debris. I believe a 38 one will fit your maximas

NISSAN MAXIMA Maxima transmission - somtimes does not shift from gear 1 to 2

I have a 2001 maxima that has a transmission problem. Sometimes it does not go to gear 2 from 1 so it stays in one and revs high if you push down the pedal (just like driving a manual car just on gear 1). If it happens I would just put of the engine for a minute or 2 and start and its ok. I notice this happens more often when the car is stressed e.g in traffic higher tempratures... I have used the

For the pan drop and drain and refill you may need 15 quarts of nissan

Hi everyone Im singlemom just got my car 5mon ago the guy who sold it to me said he had the trans rebuilt and that it had a 25000 mile warr any way my problem is its slipping and i brought it back to the trans guyhe said he wont warr it cuzon the orignal sales slip they recomended the axles need to be re- placed and this is what made the trans fail dose this sound true please help me this all i have and i dont have the money to fix all of this thanks to all here singlemom

Tranmission will slip due to excessive heat or insufficient oil pressure or worn gears. Most of the time rebuilt convers only non metal parts so I guess gears were never changed and for 16 yrs old car no wonder they wear out. You can still try for heating & oil pressure 0) Check tranny oil if its not black try following 1) put in a bottle of seafoam transtune and drive around a bit 2) flush transmission

NISSAN MAXIMA When cold transmission shifts hard. Warmed up it is fine.

So I bought an i35 recently.I test drove it when the car had been driven home from the guys work so it was nice and warmed up. So I didnt notice the transmission issue since it only happens when it is cold. When cold the shift from 1 to 2 is hard. From 2 to 3 it seems to rev and slip into 3rd. 3rd to 4th is fine. When warmed up it seems to shift fine. I have drained and re-added fluid 4 time (16 quarts)

Okay dropped the pan cleaned it and the magnets with carb cleaner installed the new filter put in 4.5 new quarts of transmission fluid and sealed her back up with a new gasket. I soaked the pan bolts in purple cleaner while I replaced the filter they rinsed dried and applied permatex blue thread sealer and put the pan back on. I am still surprised at how black the tranny oil is. I have put 3 gallons

NISSAN MAXIMA Dont change dirty tranny fluid

I have a 02 maxima that was very regularly maintained except for transmission fluid changes. I recently went by a local nissan dealer to have 100k service quote written up for me. One of the things they mentioned was that the tranny oil was extremely dirty. The tranny oil has never been changed and Im sure it is in bad shape. The dealer wrote a tranny flush item on the quote for 170 but advised us

happened flushed it again within a a day or two and its perfect again. Gunk and gook builds up so when you put new tranny oil that loosens up and mixes again witht he new oil so now you still have partially bad stuff still in so you need to flush it out again and again til it runs just right....can be cost effective but think about the price for a tranny versus the price of the flushes 1999 nissan

know the last time that all of the fluids were changed so I went out & bought some Mobil 1 Higher Mileage Valvoline ATF transmission Fluid & some Prestone Coolant.

If youre looking for a lot of power you may look into cryo treating the gears as well. Third is usually the most problematic when it comes to power as its usually the smallest in there. If you have the VG30E my recommendation is to keep the stock engine in there and do a custom turbo setup from there. If you want to use salvage yard parts you can make a decent turbo setup with Z31 or 2nd gen maxima

I would first of all look into getting a used cluster from a salvage yard maybe one close to 150K mi Second of all you dont need a stinking owners manual even though they can be found on eBay for cheap. Heres the FSM (Factory Service Manual) . You cant really go wrong by changing the fluids especially the coolant given the fact that youre in NY. I would change the oilfilter trans fluidfilterpan gasket thermostat (no gasket needed use gray RTV) and coolant. Maybe look at the air filter and pull a spark plug or two.

I got about 150000 miles on the 98 I30 I know its not that high of miles and I feel my car has got a lot left in her. What kind of preventative maintenance should I do I had a 90k mile service at the dealer and I dont know if they changed the auto tranny fluid or the fuel filter I dont have records for it. (its my fathers old car.)What is included in the 90k mile service I had the car serviced last

Just changed all the fluids on my wifes 98 maxima. I keep the same maint on my transmission as I do my motor oil which is a change every 6K. I just drain my tran. fluid by undoing the bolt I dont change my tran. filter every time. I change the coolant every year because I dont want the water pump seal to get brittle as the water pump is under the timing chain cover. Gas is so high I change the sparkplugs

NISSAN MAXIMA Fluids - Types and Amounts

Gonna do a good tune-up on the 91 maxima tomorrow but I have neither the owners manual or a service manual.

The VG30E holds 4 18 quarts motor oil with filter. The transmission takes 7 78 quarts Dexron II-E. Power steering also uses Dexron II-E. Coolant capacity (total) is 8 34 quarts OEM tire size for your maxima is 2056515. There are so many viable options in that size range and theyre so cheap that its worth getting good ones. I believe stock brake pads are ceramic (they are for my 93 at any rate). So

I have a 02 Max automatic. Wanted to know if this is a drain and fill without the gasketfilter change and if so do you fill it from where the dipstick is and how many quarts of trans fluid Thanks If someone has a quick write up...please post..and again Thanks

A note regarding the transmission oil screen (not really a filter) The screen is held in place by a few bolts and one nut that is threaded on a bolt() that is in the opposite direction as the rest. A few forum memebers including myself have reported having trouble removing that one nut and opted for just leaving the screen alone.

Hey everyone i had a 97 automatic altima whos tranny has been going for awhile and would cost far too much for me to fix so i went and got me my first maxima. This is a 1997 maxima GLE automatic with about 126k miles on it (i got it for 2800). I just got the thing but so far it runs very well but then again im no mechanic. So i have done some research and i know the basic things i can do to increase

Make sure the engine can breathe well and properly lubricated as well as the transmission. That means fluid replacement. Cleancheck the entire air intake - air filter MAF sensor and Throttle Body. Replace air filter annually. Clean the MAF sensor with zero-residue contact cleaner or CRC MAF Sensor Cleaner. Clean the Throttle body with Carb Cleaner but DO NOT SPRAY DIRECTLY INTO THE BUTTERFLY VALVE
