It looks like its time for me to change my transmission fluid. I noticed a slight shuttering when it shifts now, it is not as smooth as the early days of owning this car. I was just wondering what the BEST transmission fluid is for a 2000 Infiniti I30 with roughly 130k miles. It looks like I will be changing the transmission fluid and filter while down there. Any insight would help! Thanks!!
My y2k i30 has just 100k miles. I use Castrol Import Multi-Vehicle ATF (10 Qts) when doing mine. I'll probably set the schedule for every 30k miles for a transmission fluid change, but not a full flush. I put most miles behind me on two wheels, the i30 is there for really bad weather or when I need to drop off or pick up the kids.
Strange.....doesn't anybody use Nissan transmission fluid?
Nissan will charge tripple what it's worth. And if you're doing a fluid change, this is a chance to upgrade to a higher performance fluid. You wouldn't want nissan fluid anyway. It may be made specifically for Nissan transmissions, but there are better options if you do your research.
Looks like I am going to shop for the mobile 1 synthetic ATF. Thanks guys!!
I jacked up my car because I noticed oil stains on my driveway. Looks like my car is leaking oil from the oil pan gasket and the plug. Also, I saw oil spots near the transaxle. Here is a sample of what my winter maintanence checklist looks like
-Flush Transmission Fluid (Mobil 1 ATF Synthetic)
-Replace Oil pan gasket and plug
-Replace Driver Side Axle (CV boot ripped)
-Find out where that leak is coming from
Pics are on the way . . . . .
Any suggestions where I can get a good quality axle from?? Thanks folks!!! Let the work begin!!
