2016 versa note, almost 60k miles. Recommend change and warranty ends. I just called dealer, said I couldn't get CVT Fluid Filter, Fluid Filter cover, Transmission filter (there is none, no there is a strainer inside the pan), don't drop the pan.
I mean normally I would drop pan, clean the magnets inside, clean the pan, replace gasket, replace filter. I know it's just a strainer inside and the filter is external, but the service manual says filter cover is not to be reused.
So what do y'all do? Just a drain/fill twice (maybe drive a bit and do the 2nd one after a bit of driving)? Anyone drop pan, clean, new gasket and everything like I'm saying.
I mean the dealer is like the CVT isn't serviceable and you don't need to change the CVT fluid. Um dude your own service manual says 30k harsh (which TBH I should have done at 30k cause their harsh is like normal driving it seems) and 60k normal driving.
Give this a look and see if it gives you ideas. Personally I would let the dealer take care of it but that choice is up to you. Good luck!!!
All I do with my 2016 Nissan Quest CVT is drain it cold, use an empty 5qt oil jug to measure the amount I drained out, then refill will that exact amount. I buy Nissan NS-3 fluid off eBay for around $10/qt shipped. The only reason I stick with the NS-3 for now is because it's blue in color. Should I have a warranty issue with it, I don't want any other color fluid in there. Once I'm beyond my ~100K mi warranty, I'll have no problem using one of the "suitable for use" aftermarket fluid like Castrol, Valvoline, etc. Most of them are either red or motor oil colored.
