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.

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.

NO,NO,NO ,NO . Whoever told you CVT fluid is lifetime should be resign his job immediately . I was at the dealer recently and my advisor told me 50 k should be good Interval for CVT fluid exchange ( not drain and fill ) . If you want your car at optimum I would recommend to do it before 55 -60 k .If you have crossed 50k already ,OW You better be ready for big repair bill . Again, CVT fluid isn't lifetime . Despites the generations of CVTs . I was there for service CVT software update for TCM. First they said you don't need update , but since I found out that they have update by calling Nissan Consumer affairs and found reference number of that campaign . It's pretty sad that Nissan did not recall all cars neither listed as recall for this update . Basically this update only for customer who are expericing issues with their cvt . I said I want to take precaution , then I made them to do it under warranty . It takes about 2- 3 hours .Now it runs like I just recently bought it without even changing fluir . I didn't have issue with my cvt but I had dealer to do it just extra peace of mind since all horror stories about cvts

My dealership has been pushing this at 50K but I understand that is to be done at 60K IF the car has been operating under a load - such as pulling a trailer. Otherwise it is 100K miles.

who many litter gear oil need to change

I will never recommend buying a Nissan. I purchased a 2013 Altima. New. Purchased a extended warranty. I put on alot of highway miles. I have had all recommended work completed at the dealership. I had a new transmission installed at 86,000 miles. I now have 142,000 and the transmission is already failing. Whines all the time. Beware of Nissan cvt transmissions.......I have had the cvt oil changed at 45,000 miles, new transmission at 86,000. Again changed at 105,000.
