I think the overfilling only applies to the V6, (FS5R30A) transmission. There's a TSB from Nissan floating around that spells out the details. Most owners don't overfill and never have a problem with their transmission. Doesn't apply to your transmission though.

I've always used Redline MT-90 in my transmissions. Amsoil is a quality product, just make sure it's a GL-4 and not GL-4 compatible. Don't let some autoparts store-clerk try to tell you otherwise.

Or did you remove the control housing by removing the 6 screws?

See Pic with Red arrows

Again thanks for your help

I believe I only removed the shifter and not the 6 bolts.

I believe this is what I used except it didn't come in the squeeze package back when I bought it. May still have some, let me go out and look.

at least 6


The input shaft bearing in my transmission was kinda noisy (with the boot off) so I just filled it up until the noise went away.
You can read about it here.

You mentioned that you poured oil down the shifter hole in the thread that you attached.

When you poured the oil in from the shifter did you remove the snap ring and pull the shift lever out to pour it down?

Or did you remove the control housing by removing the 6 screws? I believe 4WD has 4 screws?

I attached a pic of what Iím talking about earlier in this thread.

Jason Bourne: No need to remove the bolts. Just the snap ring. It's super easy if you have the right tool. Hardest part as others have mentioned is getting the main boot off if you have carpet.
I'd like to know if you notice the same noise in your transmission when the shifter is out or boot is off.

It may be a little while before I can get to the tranny fluid change, but when I do I’ll listen for the the noise you are talking about and post my results.

Replaced the tranny oil a little while back and forgot to post. I listened for the noise that you mentioned. I couldnít hear any noise with the shifter boot on or off. I pressed the clutch in and out many times, but no noise. The truck only has 88K original miles so iím not sure if that is making a difference.
