CVT fluid : Refer to TM "General Specification".

Fluid capacity : Refer to TM "General Specification".


  • Use only Genuine NISSAN CVT Fluid NS-3. Using transmission fluid other than Genuine NISSAN CVT Fluid NS-3 will damage the CVT, which is not covered by the (NISSAN new vehicle limited) warranty.
  • During adjustment of the CVT fluid level, check CONSULT so that the oil temperature may be maintained from 35 to 45C (95 to 113F).
  • Use caution when looking into the drain hole as there is a risk of dripping fluid entering the eye.
  1. Check that the selector lever is in the "P" position, then completely engage the parking brake.
  2. Start the engine.
  3. Adjust the CVT fluid temperature to be approximately 40C (104F).

    NOTE: The CVT fluid is largely affected by temperature. Therefore be sure to use CONSULT and check the "FLUID TEMP" under "TRANSMISSION" in "Data Monitor" while adjusting.

  4. While depressing the brake pedal, shift the selector lever to the entire position from "P" to "L", and shift it to the "P" position.

    NOTE: Hold the lever at each position for 5 seconds.

  5. Lift up the vehicle.
  6. Check that there is no CVT fluid leakage.
  7. Remove the drain plug. Refer to TM "Removal and Installation".


  1. Install the charging pipe set (KV311039S0) (A) into the drain plug hole.

    CAUTION: Tighten the charging pipe by hand.

  2. Install the ATF changer hose (B) to the charging pipe.

    CAUTION: Press the ATF changer hose all the way onto the charging pipe until it stops.

  3. Fill approximately 0.5 liter (1/2 lmp qt) of the CVT fluid.
  4. Remove the ATF changer hose from the charging pipe, and check that the CVT fluid drains out from the charging pipe. If it does not drain out, perform charging again.

    CAUTION: Perform this work with the vehicle idling.

  5. When the flow of CVT fluid slows to a drip, remove the charging pipe from the oil pan.
  6. Tighten the drain plug to the specified torque. Refer to TM "Removal and Installation".

    CAUTION: Never reuse drain plug gasket.

  7. Lift down the vehicle.
  8. Stop the engine.
