How often should the transmission fluid and filter be replaced on a 2002 Nissan Maxima?
The 96 Maxma has a timing chain which lasts the life of the car. I have a 112000 on mine and it runs fine . I am doing mine and I have 12000 when the belt starts to crack or make noise it is good to change it. The belts are not that much. I found mine on line for $12 and I would rather spend that than have it break down and then pay to get it towed.
The 1990 Nissan Maxima came equipped with the 3.0L V6 and the RE4F02A automatic transmission. This type of transmission requires a professional tear down and overhaul to remove and replace the transmission filter assembly. It is not a standard pan filter with relatively easy access. The internal Maxima filter for the RE4F02A transmission is ATP part #B157.
How do you change the transmission filter on a 1990 Nissan Maxima with a automatic transmission How Much transmission fluid do you need?
it is a loose solder joint...meaning behind your dash the connection is loose....take out the screws on the top of the dash and pull out. If you have an automatic transmission, there is a sensor right behind the oil filter. Sometimes the sensor goes bad and needs to be replaced for about $156 at Nissan. I have found that by sometimes jiggling the wires by pushing them gently into the sensor can solve the problem…
IT IS LOCATED ON THE BACK SIDE OF THE ENGINE BLOCK STANDING AT THE FRONT OF THE CAR. YOU HAVE TO REACH DOWN AND BACK WITH YOUR HAND AND YOU WILL FEEL IT.(BETWEEN THE ENGINE BLOCK AND THE FIREWALL) If it has a servicable filter, it more than likely will be located inside the transmission. The transmission pan will need to be removed to access the filter. Look in your owner's manual.
If you have a Maxima GXE with the VG30E engine, the fuel filter is located on the firewall on the driver's side. It simply slides into a bracket, and the rubber fuel lines are just held on by 2 clamps. The filter is in the same place on a 1992 Maxima SE with the VE30DE engine as well, but it will be slightly harder to access.
