Where on a 2.4lt 1989 Nissan Pintara do you put the transmission fluid? I cannot seem to find where it would go and my vehicle is not changing gears properly.

  • Did it come with an owner's manual?

    I googled for: NISSAN PINTARA 1989-1992 WORKSHOP and found a number of relevant hits. Just be careful what you download. Only download PDFs; never run a "downloader" or an "installer" to get at a file. If it's legit, they'll link to the PDF directly. Commented Jun 20, 2014 at 13:17

As far as I can tell, the workshop manual makes no mention of a fill plug.

After draining out the old transmission fluid via the drain plug and reinstating it, one option is to introduce the new ATF through the dipstick channel.

Page AT-85 of the manual says that the transmission takes 6.8 L of ATF.


There is not a location to refill the ATF on this vehicle.

You will need to take it to a shop where they have special pumps to remove and replace the current ATF in your transmission.

  • It has a drain plug

  • @Zaid. But not a fill point. It needs to be pumped out Commented Dec 18, 2015 at 5:28
  • Couldn't you just pull out the dipstick?
