Inspection

CHECKING CVT FLUID

The fluid level should be checked with the fluid warmed up to 50 to 80C (122 to 176F). The fluid level check procedure is as follows: 1. Check for fluid leakage.

2. With the engine warmed up, drive the vehicle in an urban area.

When ambient temperature is 20C (68F), it takes about 10 minutes for the CVT fluid to warm up to 50 to 80C (122 to 176F).

3. Park the vehicle on a level surface.

4. Apply parking brake firmly.

5. With engine at idle, while depressing brake pedal, move shift selector throughout the entire shift range.

6. Pull out the CVT fluid level gauge from the CVT fluid charging


6. Pull out the CVT fluid level gauge from the CVT fluid charging pipe after pressing the tab on the CVT fluid level gauge to release the lock.

7. Wipe fluid off the CVT fluid level gauge. Insert the CVT fluid


7. Wipe fluid off the CVT fluid level gauge. Insert the CVT fluid level gauge rotating 180 from the originally installed position, then securely push the CVT fluid level gauge until it meets the top end of the CVT fluid charging pipe.

CAUTION:
When wiping away the CVT fluid level gauge, always use lint-free paper, not a cloth rag.

8. Place the selector lever in P or N and check that the fluid


8. Place the selector lever in P or N and check that the fluid level is within the specified range.

CAUTION:
When reinstalling CVT fluid level gauge, insert it into the CVT fluid charging pipe and rotate it to the original installation position until securely locked.

CVT FLUID CONDITION


CVT FLUID CONDITION

Check CVT fluid condition.

If CVT fluid is very dark or smells burned, check operation of CVT. Flush cooling system after repair of CVT.

If CVT fluid contains frictional material (clutches, brakes, etc.), replace radiator and flush cooler line using cleaning solvent and compressed air after repair of CVT. Refer to TM-297, "Exploded View".


Changing


Changing

CAUTION:
Replace drain plug gasket with new ones at the final stage of the operation when installing.

1. Remove drain plug from oil pan.

2. Remove drain plug gasket from drain plug.

3. Install drain plug gasket to drain plug.

CAUTION:
Never reuse drain plug gasket.

4. Install drain plug to oil pan.

Drain plug tightening torque : Refer to TM-283, "Exploded View".

5. Fill CVT fluid from CVT fluid charging pipe to the specified level.

CVT fluid : Refer to TM-308, "General Specifica- Fluid capacity tion".

CAUTION:
Use only Genuine NISSAN CVT Fluid NS-2. Never mix with other fluid.

Using CVT fluid other than Genuine NISSAN CVT Fluid NS-2 will deteriorate in driveability and CVT durability, and may damage the CVT, which is not covered by the warranty.

When filling CVT fluid, take care not to scatter heat generating parts such as exhaust.

Sufficiently shake the container of CVT fluid before using.

Delete CVT fluid deterioration date with CONSULT-III after changing CVT fluid.

6. With the engine warmed up, drive the vehicle in an urban area.

NOTE

:
When ambient temperature is 20C (68F), it takes about 10 minutes for the CVT fluid to warm up to 50 to 80C (122 to 176F).

7. Check CVT fluid level and condition.

8. Repeat steps 1 to 5 if CVT fluid has been contaminated.
