Leaking transfer case at the impellar shaft. I might of over filled it a bit but have siphoned some out and will keep checking the level. Other than that only Nissan has done the maintance on the car and several times since the accident. I get the spill under control, tighten up the bolt and start to refill it. It may be rubber or plastic on the tip. I tried checking it yesterday.
Sorry for my ignorance but I just want to take care of my Rogue Thanks in advance for your advice Bill Lewis wrote:I have a 2008 with 52k on it. T I am trying to get the funnel to get all of the fluid into the milk jug, I can't control the flow of fluid coming out, I am not sure where the plug has gone unknown to me the plug has now settled itself at the bottom of the funnel and is now impeeding the flow of the fluid going into the jug. They told me I need to change it at 30,000miles. My advice: buy extra, replace what you drain, check and recheck levels after some drives, and don't sweat the small stuff. Continuously variable transmission fluid is an essential component of your vehicle and your transmission needs it to function.
When adding transmission fluid to your Murano, be sure to add it slowly as it will fill up quickly and is difficult to remove excess fluid if you overfill. For Flush Check Here: Here is a high-level summary of the whole process: 1. I told them how come, when ive been servicing my car at your every 5000 kilometers. Add the same amount of fluid you took out back into the transmission through the recharging pipe same place you pulled the dip stick out using your funnel. Yes, I drove the car around afterwards. Install the charging pipe set into the overflow plug hole 8.
The fluid is easy to pour into your vehicle and once the liquid is in the reservoir, your vehicle is ready to go. This video shows you how to add transmission fluid to your 2012 Nissan Murano. I jacked up the car, climbed underneath and pulled the drain plug. Curiously, I noticed when I checked the old fluid using the dipstick it looked clear. So I took it into my Nissan dealer.
The Allen bolt was on there pretty good so I had to use the handle of my jack as a breaker bar. I was informed that it was likely not necessary to have the fluid replaced and that a diagnostic test could be performed tha showed how much wear the fluid i. The dealer said it would void my warranty. Please let me know if possible. Needless to say, this was one of the most expensive oil changes I'd ever done. And does this car have a tranny drain plug that's easy to access? Not that I noticed anything wrong before, but it can't be doing any harm as the fluid that came out was nice and dark. Some say leave it all alone but I'm a preventive matenance guy.
My advice to those of you who are going to do this on your own, it isn't hard at all, but make sure you have a clean oil catch basin so you can catch this fluid. Took it back to Nissan who all of a sudden, could also see the leak! Your large truck is full of power and there is no questioning or doubt about that. I will definitely do this every 40,000 to 50,000 miles just to keep it fresh. Any help appreciated - especially if there's a write-up out there with pictures. I figure it can't hurt to do it at 60,000.
Have a hitch and have doen some light towing of a small landscape trailer with my motorcycle and some household items. Personally, I wouldn't bother with anything else. I thought easy, I could control the flow and if it got to about 4 quarts, I could stop the flow, empty it and continue on. I know I'm new, and noobs often resurrect dead threads but I wanted to see how many people have done this. I looked at the instructions on this org and pulled the Max up onto some ramps in my garage and got started.
I just checked my dipstick the other day and the fluid is crystal clear after 60,000 km. In my case they changed the oil first and the sound didnt go and then they changed the whole assembly. Tighten the drain plug, and then remove the overflow plug. The way I read it, so long as you follow the basic maintenance as outlined in Schedule 1 or 2, the warranty is valid. I should have used large towels instead of hand cloths underneath. Thanks guys Would there be any harm to perform a transmission fluid change on a high mileage car 240k km? I have heard people say to wait until 100,000 and then change it, so who knows. I put in 4 quarts, start the car, go through all the gears P, R, N D, 1 and back , check the level- it's at the 1st notch, put another quart in just for safe measure.
I've also never had brakes done and at this mileage is that normal. The Allen bolt was on there pretty good so I had to use the handle of my jack as a breaker bar. I have heard people say to wait until 100,000 and then change it, so who knows. Thanks for the write up, this was an easy job. Reinstall drain plug in oil pan 4.
