Re: Auto Trans Oil


Hi, my Exy has now done 109066kms, and has been regularly serviced at the recommended intervals, at each service I paid $27.50 to supply my own Transmax to have the sump plug removed, drained what oil was there and replaced the sump plug, then filling with Transmax.
The service department at FTG Nissan tell me I am wasting my time changing as the oil does not even change colour, as previously stated, I tow my 17'6" 1750kg fully laden pop top two or three times a year and NEVER had any trouble with the transmission, I also use the lower shift positions when slowing down to save the brakes. Hope this helps with your Xtrail.
Cheers Bobtaus.

Re: Auto Trans Oil


I have a 2012 Auto Deisel. My Owners manual states to use Nissan MATIC "S". but in the footnotes states that Matric " J" may also be used.

The difference in price is significant ($165 for 5l of " S "and $60 for the Matic "J"),

I wondering what the difference in the products are and if anyone has used the "J" without issue.

I'm presuming that the Matic "S" is a later production so may be technically better.

Cheers

Re: Auto Trans Oil


Searching the internet there are numerous results stating that Matic S replaced Matic J and that the two types are completely compatible, so it seems Matic S is more than likely a better oil.
Maybe you could search for the specifications of each to see what has improved.
