I'm trying to sell this car and potential buyers have told me it seems to have issues with the transmission. He helped me find the car and worked with me during the process until I was satisfied. I hope I could help!!! Find 11 bolts and one nut that attach the filter assembly to the transmission. !!! Install a new filter and replace the bolts and nut in their original locations. I recommend going to a transmission specialist, but replacing the resistor is worth a shot.
Remove the drain plug by pushing it in while unscrewing it with your hand. Drain the rest of the fluid into the drain pan. You may use a lint free cloth soaked in solvent if needed. Tighten them to 4 to 5 foot pounds. They would have the latest updates and be the best quality over aftermarket new or parts store rebuilds which are questionable quality.
Insert the dipstick into the filler tube. Over the 8 years, so far I've had to have the following work done: -Replaced the radiator, which had a crack at the plastic portion. Loosen all of the 21 fluid pan retaining bolts. Fluid will begin to drain. If using oil recommend get gaskets done. The engine types may include 2.
Remove the jack stands so that you can lower your car with the jack. Allow the transmission fluid to drain. Also, if I can get to both bolts, I can't see a way to get the starter out other than raising the engine. Depending on how long it's been leaking, it should be evidenced by a low level of one or the other. The replacement starter should come with a solenoid.
Other than the above repairs, the rest has been oil changes, coolant changes, transmission fluid changes, filters, brakes, and tires. Professional representative for the dealership. I could've hurt people and myself!! I've had only minor repairs done on the car. In addition, remove the old gasket from the pan with a scraper. Which is under my backseat I bought it in 2002 and it still keeps on ticking! Place your dipstick into the fill port to check the fluid level after you have shifted into each gear of the transmission. Remove the gasket and apply a few drops of adhesive.
Tighten the retaining screws evenly to 43 to 61 inch pounds with a torque wrench. I own a 1998 Nissan Altima automatic transmission. Don't let a damaged transmission jeopardize that safety when affordable Nissan Altima automatic transmission parts are available today from your local AutoZone. If the fluid reaches the fill line on the dipstick, do not add more fluid. Hi How do i suppose to check the automatic transmission level to be on the safe side??? So now, my question is, how the heck do I get to the second bolt without removing way too many hoses, wires, etc? This bolt is just below the solenoid, screwed into the mounting flange of the starter.
Use a socket wrench to loosen the retaining screws on the pan until you can gently pull one corner of the pan down. Your Nissan car contains a transmission system entirely dependent upon fresh fluid in order to function properly. How can I get to the bolt that is towards the front of the car? The white paint is excellent, and the body and undercarriage has absolutely no rust. Position a new gasket on the fluid pan and install the pan onto the transmission. Dangerous due to it melted connectors on top wear fuel can ignite! He spoke to me in terms that I could I understand and took interest in what I wanted. Meaning your transmission will die.
If you don't know how to check transmission fluid, park the vehicle on a level surface, start engine and move transmission through all gears Park, reverse, drive, etc. Undergoes extensive testing to ensure reliability. Secure the filter by tightening the retaining bolts to 6. If you are looking for a reliable car with low maintenance this's the car!! I hope to keep the car until I get to at least 200,000 miles. Clean the fluid pan with a safe solvent and set it aside to air dry.
Run your engine during the remainder of the fluid replacement process. I was driving back from the car wash and I am the kind of person who likes to drive so I went the long way and someone didn't wait for me to go through the intersection and turned in front of me and I had T-Boned them. Raise the front of the car with ramps or a floor jack and support it with jack stands and wheel blocks. Or, a ratcheting wrench may work. Shift your car's transmission, holding each gear idle for at least five seconds.
