2WD Affected by TSB?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Is the 2WD Pathfinders affected by the manual gearbox oil starvation in the TSB? The TSB seems to only mention the 4WD models.

If you have a 4WD Pathfinder with this transmission, you must overfill the transmission. See this thread on NPORA.

  • 2WD: 2.536 quarts
  • 4WD: 3.80 quarts

Had a look at the TSB and it does specify 4WD only. Given the difference in fluid capacity, I assume the 2WD trans has a different case--hopefully Nissan got the fluid capacity right on that gearbox the first time.

The 2wd has a different tail shaft housing that is longer than the 4wd. It would not hurt to give the 2wd trans the same treatment though. I had an 85 300zx that had input shaft bearing problems just like the trucks did.

Thanks, guys!

 

I'm thinking I'll buy a gallon of the Redline MT-90 and fill as much as I can until it leaks out or matches what comes out. A gallon should be enough considering the smaller starting volume for the 2WD, right?

It should, 4 qts to a gallon and all that.
