I just did a drain and fill top top a "08 Altima 2.5 S CVT. I offered this 07-08: just how to readjust Your CVT Transmission fluid (Drain/Refill) - my6thgen.org - Mainvernessgangshow.netima Forum procedure because that the Mainvernessgangshow.netima and also a neinvernessgangshow.nett-to-useless Haynes hand-operated as references.Here"s what I discovered out. Nissan management and also engineers room idiots who want to pressure you into the dealership for service. You"ll need: 3 quarts Nissan NS-2 CVT fluid, some means to advanced the former of the car, gloves, 10mm heinvernessgangshow.net driver, ratchet, tiny flat blade screwdriver, tool phillips head screwdriver, shop towels, empty containers, and kitty litter.1) Drive about till the vehicle warms up and also hit every the equipment selections: P-R-N-D.2) journey up top top ramps. I recommend jackstands or a lift to make accessing the CVT drainpipe plug much easier by turning the wheel to the left or acquisition the wheel off.3) This action is idiotic. Start removing screws and also pop rivets around the bottom left next of the bumper and wheel well splash guards utilizing the tiny flat blade and medium phillips screwdriver. Remove enough to acquire your hand and also a ratchet through.4) past the lower structure you"ll view the CVT drainpipe plug on the driver side of the transmission situation towards the front. You would think it would be situated in the ago and bottom, however noooo ...5) Slip your ratchet through 10mm heinvernessgangshow.net driver v the obstructions and onto the CVT drainpipe plug. That doesn"t take much force to rest loose. Yes, you will certainly be reaching and contorting.6 ) place a huge drain pan underneath and you have the right to loosen the CVT drain plug off v your fingers. The CVT liquid will gush out all over.7) Clean off the CVT drainpipe plug and also check that the rubber o-ring is quiet good.8) take it the CVT dipstick out making use of the tiny screwdriver to push versus the plastic locking tab, this was a how amazing pain in the butt the very first time (stupid Nissan design), and also clean the off. Much more CVT fluid will drip out. Pour the supplied CVT fluid into containers to obtain a ballpark calculation for the re-fill.9) Re-install CVT drainpipe plug with rubber o-ring and tighten come 25 ft lbs, but you won"t be able to fit many torque wrenches as result of obstructions for this reason "tight enough" will do.10) Re-fill gradually with brand-new Nissan NS-2 CVT liquid using a long little funnel, 2 quarts is a great start.11) Measure fluid level by the inserting the CVT dipstick through the locking tab on the contrary side turn off the fill tube so you have the right to pull it right earlier out. Progressively re-fill 1/3 quart at a time until it hits the Cold mark.12) Clean every little thing up through shop towels, inspect for leaks, and also re-install splash guards.13) journey off ramps and drive around a bit and also making sure you hit all equipment selections.14) Park top top level ground, revolve off the car, and immediately examine the CVT fluid level. It must be up at the warm mark. Re-install the CVT dipstick v the locking tab positioned normally. I re-filled simply shy of 3 quarts total.15) Dump enough kitty litter on floor to soak up flood CVT fluid.16) after ~ 4 years and 52k mile the manufacturing facility CVT fluid was DARK! The brand-new fluid to be a light eco-friendly (not bright environment-friendly like coolant).17) examine CVT liquid level and for leaks the neinvernessgangshow.nett job after driving.Was it worth it? Yes, it was! You can mail stimulate Nissan NS-2 liquid for cheap. The dealerships and also auto shops fee too much for labor and also you recognize that girlfriend put brand-new fluid in. The CVT no longer has actually hesitation at low rpm"s and also throttle response is effortless. It is smoother now compared to when we purchase the vehicle used. A full CVT fluid change is claimed to be excellent every 60k miles or 4 year according to Haynes, therefore I figure a drain and also fill every 30k or 2 years miles should be plenty. NS-2 fluid is sold in 6 quart boinvernessgangshow.netes so ns have sufficient left over. I"m einvernessgangshow.netpecting mileage will climb quickly as result of commuting.
