The Nissan Altima has an opaque cylinder that holds the brake fluid. Looking on the side of the cylinder, check the high and low marks and make sure that the fluid is between the two.

Use a turkey baster or something similar to suck the brake fluid from the 2001 Altima reservoir. Open the bleeder valves and drain the lines as much as possible. Refill the system and bleed the wheel cylinders to complete the fluid change.

Check the transmission fluid on the 1995 Nissan Altima. Bad fluid can cause the transmission to shift harder on parts that are more worn.

At the back of the engine theres a container thing and it has marking on it telling you how much fluid is in it.

A 1993 Nissan Altima will take approximately 3.5 quarts of transmission fluid. This fluid can be purchased at any auto parts store such as NAPA.

Things you need to check is brake fluid oil, and brake pads. If they are fine then it is the brake switch which needs replacing. Also check the handbrakes as sometimes it is left engaged.

What ever the owner's manual states or what is describe on the top of the reservoir. DOT 3 more than likely.

There will be approximately 2.6 quarts of automatic transmission fluid for a 2002 Nissan Altima. The transmission oil can be purchased at any auto parts store.

Brake fluid level is marginally low, check pad wear rather than just adding fluid.

Under the hood on the driver's side is a large round vacuum booster. Attached to it is the master cylinder. Before you add any fluid you will need to check and see which fluid is required, Dot3 or Dot4. Add fluid to the fill line or 1/2 inch from the top. DO NOT mix fluids.
