Hello. 1st. of all, for those that might think this is a "repeat" of other threads. I DID look. In fact, I've looked all over the internet looking for the information I need. Also after reading all of the questions and replies about Nissan transmissions. I understand many on here have their preferred trans fluid. Those of you, as far as I can tell, are driving 2011 or 2012 or OLDER versa's. So, I hope someone on here can help me with ROCK SOLID FACTS. What i'm saying is guesses don't help much when a $4,000 transmission is at stake. So here goes. Does anyone have the EXACT ATF specification for a 2016 Versa with the 4-speed automatic?
I don't know when Nissan eliminated the dipstick on this transmission. But the 2016 has no dipstick. The OWNERS manual states they recommend Nissan ATF. My local NISSAN dealer quoted me $19.95 per quart. And I specified it was the 4-speed auto, and NOT the CVT. My trans is low on fluid due to a radiator change, and a leaking fitting. When I asked my local NISSAN dealer about THEM checking the fluid level, their reply is "we can do a flush/fill for $189. And that's the ONLY way to verify the correct trans fluid level??? This seems like a nice Bare Bones car, that gets incredible gas mileage. But $20 a quart. And $189 to verify its full, leaves a bad taste in my mouth over this car. If I can get the "specification" for this trans fluid, I will fill it to my "BEST GUESS" and keep my fingers crossed.
THANKS in advance. And I'm sorry if I offended anyone with the way I asked my question. Just trying to explain that What was recommended for a Versa 6 or 7 years ago, probably isn't the same spec. used today.
Pimperell, THANK YOU VERY MUCH ! The site you provided Gave the EXACT transmission fluid spec. As well as step by step instructions on how to refill the system with the proper amount of fluid. My local Nissan dealer told me their atf was $19.95 per quart. I found the same spec trans fluid at O'Reilly's ( the spec is Nissan Matic S ) and the ATF is O'Reilly"s GLOBAL MULTI-Vehicle Automatic Transmission Fluid. Please remember, A Petro chemical company makes the ATF for Nissan. And a Petro Chemical company (possibly the same one) makes the ATF for O'Reilly's. Jus saying.
Hello Cobb, My Versa has 18K on it. I used to change my Oil and other fluids early. But I've backed away from that.
