For 2014 Nissan Altima, how to change the oil in a CVT transmission?
I'd have it changed by the dealership at the recommended interval. If you came here to find out how to change the oil in a CVT, you probably should leave this job to an expert.
Good point Bob. I tend to agree, even the instructions on that forum are for an at least moderately experienced mechanic. Instructions in text are no way like watching and learning first
The reason why I came here to ask about the CVT oil change is because my dealer wants to charge me $590.00. I didn't know that it would cost this much, so I decided to come here for advice. Thank you : )
Shouldn't be that much. Why are you changing it on a 2014 already? How many miles? Nissan recommend a change at 100K. If your close to that then I'd have a trans shop perform the service.
"The reason why I came here to ask about the CVT oil change is because my dealer wants to charge me $590.00. I didn't know that it would cost this much, so I decided to come here for advice. Thank you : )" My comment was not intended to offend and I think you understand that. Wow, $590. to change the transmission fluid is crazy. Another reason I may never buy a new car with a CVT transmission. CVT transmissions in my opinion have not been quite perfected yet. There are lots of issues with them. I wish you the best of luck with it.
The fluid has to be pumped into a plug on the bottom of the transmission. Without the proper tools it would be extremely difficult. We charge $199 at the dealership and most of that cost is the fluid at about $20.00 per quart.
To do a drain and fill on a transmission on a 2013 nissan altima how much quarts will I need to put back in if anyone out there please let me know Thank you
I had it done at Jiffy Lube for 120.00
I have 2014 Altima 2.5 for my 60km service, I asked about to change the CVT fluid. The nissan service advised me it can be change if it's necessary. They said CVT fluid is a lifetime oil. It could be change once you experience your Gearbox difficult in moving and need for maintenance.
