For those that have done the transmission fluid change, what brand and type did you go with? Did you stay with the Nissan Matic K or something else? Thanks.

Your going to hear everything on this question..... There are superior fluids on the market and a couple of those are maxlife ATF and wolfshead. With Nissan I would suggest using matic k till 60,000. You can buy it online fairly reasonable. Everyone will say Nissan can"t make you use that and I agree but you trying to fight Nissan is like pissing up a rope.

I used whatever the dealer put in... But now I"m changing it myself this time so I"m going for a synthetic fluid. Either Wols Head or Amsoil, haven"t made my mind up yet. But will change it within the week, so will decide soon.
Just performed my second transmission fluid service at 72,000 miles. I did my first one at 30,000 miles then decided to push it to 40,000 miles. Sticking with Nissan tranny fluid. I"m probably being a little overly cautious since it is a newer power train. With full synthetic fluids, I"d say changing it every 50,000 miles is plenty good unless you tow all the time. the more you tow and work the truck, the more frequent the trans fluid should be changed., JMHO

We recommend the OE Multi-Vehicle synthetic automatic transmission fluid from Amsoil.It"s formulated with friction modifiers that makes the trans shift fast with smooth clutch engagement. And it has good wear protection.Contact me directly and I"ll get you 25% off retail.

I know we have had a lot talk on tranny fluid changing. If I am making the fluid changed to Another brand or type. Is it appropriate to just drop the pan and change the fluid and filter like has been well explained in other threads or should a another procedure be performed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
I just did a drain and fill and used the AMSOIL signature series. I use to have a surging between second and third and third and 4th. That"s gone now completely. I have a theory. The surging never happend on cold mornings and in fact the transmission shifted like silk first drive in the morning. That"s because the fluid is thickest at that point. once it warms up the tranny would start to surge again. I think the AMSOIL fluid is thicker and that"s why my tranny shifts smooth now whether hot or cold.

I am not an Amsoil dealer of promoter but the Amsoil OE Multi-Vehicle trans fluid saved the transmission in my 2005 Titan. It is good stuff
I just changed the Tranny fluid and filter on my 2016 diesel XD Sunday. Never attempted this on any other vehicle because i know enough to be dangerous but was a fairly simple job that took a few hours because I took my time. I used AMSOIL Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic Auto Transmission Fluid and the OEM Filter. I first attempted to suck the tranny fluid from the filler tube with two different pumps that have always served me well from Jabsco but I only managed to get about a quart and a half thru the dipstick and I had the tube pushed down as far as it would allow. Drained tranny by removing plug but as previously mentioned there is probably at least 1/2 of a quart laying in the pan after it stops dripping so I put the drain plug back in before removing the pan which kept em from spilling that half quart when I dropped pan. Removing teh filter was a breeze except for the fact that when I pulled it off with tranny oil soaked gloves it slipped out of my hands and splashed into the tranny fluid that was dumped and splattered my driveway pavers past the dropcloth and pan....wife is gonna kill me....Listening to the tranny clunk into Drive and reverse after refilling is disconcerting but after 10 or so shifts going back and forth from D to R and driving around block a few times it went away and all seemed well except my tranny light did not go off. It was worrying me when I drove to autozone and engine code reader showed that it was throwing a P0770 (I think that was right) that my code reader was not picking up. Although Autozone would not reset code I continued to drive truck that night because it was shifting perfectly. After I shut down and restarted...waalaaa the At check light was off. Probably took at least 10 restarts of the engine.Have driven it about 500 miles since Saturday and truck shifts smooth and feels great. So far have changed oil and filter, Fuel filters and tranny fluid and filter and without a hitch. Next items are differentials (Amsoil) and adding Mag-Hytec rear Diff Cover (GM 14_9.5), and transfer case (stuck to Nissan product).Interesting note when I changed Oil and filter. I purchased my 2016 Titan as a leftover in January 2017. at 10,000 miles had oil and filter changed by dealership (November 2017). When I changed oil and filer myself in March 2017 at 20,500 miles my oil filter (fleetguard? not Nissan brand) was rusty. The lip was rusty and parts of the filer on sides were rusty. Been changing oil for 20 year son my cars and never saw a rusty oil filter...but then again I never had a filter on the car for 2 years? Either I am a paranoid ******* or my friends at Nissan charged me to change oil and filter and did not. In 2016 being a first model year truck I assume that Cummings delivered engine with fleetguard filters but when I asked Nissan what filter tehy use....they said nothing but Nissan Brand! Of course they showed me where filter was billed to my account (of course) but I have a feeling I drove 20,000 mile son same oil and filter! Now that is bullshit. Do it yourself if you want it done right.
