My mechanic days are over. I mean it is new but the problem in it will come again. He was able to restart the vehicle and momentarily, the vehicle exhibited hesitation and slight jerking. At first this only happened once every few days and I thought I was crazy. Nissan refuses to warranty like many other other claims! Apply pressure to the drain plug while turning it to prevent fluid from leaking out. One gear only, but infinitely variable and there should not be any perception of gear shifting. I was told by my mechanic that the transmission hesitating after putting it in drive after reversing is a sign of the transmisison dying.
They didnt call me in 6 months I had it. Nissan said their filed tech could find nothing wrong with the car. Transmission was shifting rough, engine idled rough when stopped at light, and it felt like the accelerator was pulsing when I tried to accelerate from stop or very slow speed. I am wondered for a new car with in 15K miles need to replace a new transmission. The problem usually occurs when I shift from park to drive before the rpms drop below 1000. When I explained the problem to the Service Advisor, he knew right away what the problems was. Very disappointed in a dealership that is experiencing the same problem with there vehicles from hundreds of unhappy customers and refuse to help.
I was told I would have to wait for a loaner car and bring my car back so they could take a better look at it. Wait for the fluid to finish draining from the transmission. I never once had a single issue. Tighten the screws evenly with a torque wrench. It even happens when we have been driving the car and pull in to a parking spot , we are unable to get the car into park. Thats when i was informed it was indeed a factory warrAnty covered part or issue.
This has gone on for several months. Make sure not to over-fill past the full line which is visible from the dashboard. Look for the O ring that attaches the filter tube to the transmission. I am so upset because this car has been taking all the money that I have. I was driving home, car started jerking. I have done all the service as required and I have all the service records.
I thought these cars were suppose to be reliable but I guess not reading other consumer problem. As is always the case, a large quantity remains in the torque converter. Dealer recommend to replace transmission with my own cost as warranty has been expired. Remove the dipstick before filling but don't forget to put it back in when you're done. Trans would start out surging then stop totally 92000 km Tranmission failed.
Remove the transmission pan's bolts with your 17mm socket wrench after all of the fluid appears to have drained out. Connect the transmission pan back into the same position it was in before you unbolted it. It is located about 8 inches from the passenger side fender well and you will be best served by removing the air intake assembly tube which comes from the air filter. Anyway, to answer your question, head on over to your auto par … ts store or Wal-Mart and get a funnel with a hose on it that is made to fill automatic transmissions. It started about an hour into a trip on a hot summer day when I noticed a high pitch whining noise. After refill check oil level.
The vehicle was taken to the dealer where they performed a diagnostic test but could not duplicate the failure. The dipstick is located underneath the air filter. Car is unreliable and unsafe to drive. They also are not sure when they will receive the transmission to repair the vehicle. My insurance didnt pay it all off so Im out a car and still owe for what i believe was a defective vehicle. Put the new gasket on the transmission pan and align the holes to make sure you have the correct gasket. Put in park and check fluid level with vehicle running.
My car just started slipping out of gear. Thankfully we bought the extended warranty for it and they replaced it. I can see if he bought it from a private owner but this was from there dealership!!!!!!!!!!!!! You may need a special long funnel to access this compartment. I went home and read countless complaints online about this issue. Bottom line everybody is covering there ass and i would do the same in that keep very good records of names,times and places. The guy at the service department said that Nissan had improved the newer transmissions. Place a jack stand next to each tire on the inner portion of the car's body.
