The short answer is yes. Both the 1989 and 1990 models use the RS5F50A manual or RE4F02A automatic transmission.
on a sohc engine 7 quarts completely empty
they are the same
yes you have to take the top cover off the transmission and its located in there
i was wondering if my Nissan maxima has a filter i can change myself 1989 model
Where i can find the fuse box diagram for a 1989 nissan maxima
There is no external transmission reservoir. Transmission fluid is stored in the transmission. Fluid is added at the same point at which you check the fluid level.
IF ITS MANUAL 89-91 WILL FIT IF ITS AUTOMATIC 89-91 OR 92-93 WITH A S.O.H.C ENGINE OR A 1994 SOHC ENGINE IF YOU CHANGE THE SHIFT CONTROL UNIT
if the are both single over head cams or if they are both dual over head cams they will fit
Hello I had the same issue with my 1990 maxima. I had to have the transmission rebuilt. The reason it is jerking is that the clutches inside are worn. It is around 1,200 to 1,500 dollars to have done. Hope this helps!!
