Re: auto transmission filter


Anthony,

My understanding is that the auto transmission filter gets replaced when they change the transmission oil and it all comes as one charge.

If you have decided to change the transmission oil yourself then you can buy (import) this filter kit from the U.S. and it'll be just a little bit cheaper, but in my opinion, it's not worth the hassle.

HERE it is.

The Sentra Spec-V and our x-trail share the same auto transmission filter kit.

Hope this helps.

Re: auto transmission filter


I was in wrights nissan TRARALGON 28 feb 08 and i asked about the 120k service including my auto.Oil change, rear diff and transfer case.new plugs,new air filter,engine oil and filter,Rebleed brakes,new engine coolant,and 8litres of transmission oil.

I asked about the transmission filter and was told the filter is not changed and not on there 120k list.Was shown the computer read out,NO FILTER.price $427 the lot two hours to do it.

I also had a look on the cd about the auto oil and i could find no mention of a transmission filter,but i might have not found it.Can anybody tell me what is going on and does it need a filter?cheers fellows and hope some one can fill me in,

Re: auto transmission filter


I was back at wights Nissan yesterday to pick up a part i ordered,and this time i talked to the head mechanic about the auto transmission filter.He said he had never changed one,and would only do it if the auto had been used for towing a lot.He also said the colour of the oil was one factor that would get him to change the oil filter.Quoted that the auto is bullet proof and for normal use only the oil change is required at 120ks.My two bobs worth cheers

Ray,

I couldn't find it the service manual either, but will check this with the dealer I go to at the next service (the 100K service) just to be sure.

Ray,

The exy does have the automatic transmission filter for sure. HERE it is.

If the dealer tells me they can't change it, am gonna buy this kit from the US and have my mechanic change it with the next transmission oil change.

Re: auto transmission filter


Your choice,but from what i gather after looking at the nissan work sheet data at the dealer ship,nissan does not think it is required for normal usage.Trying to save us money?or its not required at this time.I will think it over,but as i have never towed anything,and live in the country where the auto stays most of the time in overdrive just loafing along.Thanks for looking,and i find this a strange one.I now have to work out what is the best tranny oil to use?any suggestions/ The mechanic said if you do the oil change yourself,at least buy the oil from us,so it will work ok.Right i read this as we want to get some business out of you.I checked on some oil company sites and dextron 111 seems to be the go and what makes nissan oil so special is lost on me.cheers

Re: auto transmission filter


Well if the tranny oil prices are the same as anywhere else i will buy the nissan stuff,does it have a oil company brand on it,dextron 111 is the same tranny oil that goes in gmh products so it is very common.cheers mate
