Re: auto transmission filter


Am not sure what is the labeling on this oil, I just let the dealer change it for me. Only once (at 40K) I had the tranny oil changed to Castrol, but it didn't stay there for long, as I had a leak in the transfer case which was fixed by the dealer under warranty and they put new tranny oil there for me.

Re: auto transmission filter


Ray,

Just came back from the dealer and asked them about the ATF filter kit. They indeed said, it is NOT a serviceable item and it only consists of a metal mesh and gasket for the pan.

They said that they do check it and if the mesh is dirty it only requires a clean and does NOT need to be replaced.

Re: auto transmission filter


Thanks Jalal the mystery is solved,thanks mate i knew you would get to the bottom of the problem.Every auto internals i have looked at has a mesh filter and i have never seen a really dirty blocked one,then i have not looked at many either(does happen),cheers and thanks for your investigation.I hope you had a happy easter,i did ended up at the tractor pull which i could not believe,even had 12cylinder aero motors in some so called tractors,and also nitro fueled blown chev motors on others .(mind blowing),talk about petrol heaven.I will now in the near future change my auto oil myself,as it appears to be easy.

Re: auto transmission filter


Hi Duxbak and Jalal,
I know several owners use the synthetic oil in their engines. Anyone you know that uses synthetic in the auto box.
I am thinking about it seeing I pull a van regularly. Also I have always had my trans services (Past umpteen years - toomany to remember) by specialist auto trans centre in Morwell, every 20,000km.
Will check with them on filter change as will with Warragul Nissan.
May get some interesting responses.
Cheers
John (tiny tech X-722)

Re: auto transmission filter


Thanks Bob,
How often do you change the transmission oil? Do you re-use it eg in a second car. I think I have read of someone doing this with their second car, but it might be false economy!

Re: auto transmission filter


Hi,tiny tech,whykes has always done my auto work in Morwell.With modern autos the oil change period has been extended greatly and reading some of the comments on this site i think some have been over servced.Some of the modern vechicles have a sealed auto and the oil is never changed.If i was towing anything on a regular basis i would use the synthetic oil for sure,and if heavy towing i would also think about a cooler.I am going to put standard castrol dextron 111 tranny oil in my exy and at nearly 120k/s i can never remember a bad gear change,and this auto would have to be the best i have ever owned.I would never ever use second hand tranny oil in any car. cheers

Re: auto transmission filter


Thanks Duxbac,
I have used Whykes for years also, but in two minds at the moment. Very pleased with Whykes but exy only done 18,000 and still on warranty. I guess the warranty must still hold if a specialist is doing the work anyway.
Will definately go for the synthetic in the trans as well as engine at its 20K service. Already fitted the K&N filter which is noticeable and will also fit the iridium plugs - if they are compatible with gas.
I had a cooler fitted by Nissan on purchase, as the exy was always going to be a workhorse with the van - pretty regularly too!
Cheers
John
