SWMBO X Trail has started to become very abrupt in changing up from 1st to 2nd no matter what RPM you are doing.
Is it possible that the transmission fluid is in need of a change and if so which one should I use??
It wasn't doing it from memory when we lived in cockroach land so would the increase in ambient temp cause the problem.

It is an 04 Ti model in marvellous Queensland Maroon colour :))

Cheers Kev

Hey Kev,

i wouldnt think the trans fluid would be that buggered in an 04 model vehicle.most trans services have 80k intervals(80k,160k,240k etc)and even 150k intervals.i think the auto in SWMBO adventra is 150k.my cruiser is 80k.how many Ks has the "Z"trail done?unless it has a problem which is possible cos its a Missan LOL.you can try a service on it and see what happens.as for fluid type it should be on the sump plug,dipstick or in service manual,could be DXIII or DXIV.cheers Paul

"Once a Queenslander always a Queenslander"

Thank God for that. Stay up there in the shallow end of the gene pool.

I was thinking of a 120 for Sam and not a 200, if I get a 200 Al will have to design a gig for the chop ;))

Methinks its running too hot in Sunny Queensland, Sonny..lol

Probably needs the filter changed in the gearbox.

Our 2003 base model runs sweetly

If that doesn't work I'll sell the Missan and Buy another TOYOTA, then it's a win-win situation

Hi Kev,
The Corolla started to get a bit grumpy once we got up here as well.
I disconnected the battery, then turned the ignition on to remove any power left in the system. Then I got a piece of wire to bridge the + and - terminals. This resets the computer and then re-connected the battery and presto sweet as.

A mechanic mate of mine told me to do this when ever a modern computerised vehicle starts playing up. It works well on common rail diesels when the fuel isn't of a great quality (woollies)
and the computer will then allow the vehicle to run as well on crappy fuel as good stuff.

Give it a try costs nothing and it sometimes works also when you think your injectors need doing (electronic injectors).

Regards
Dave



Cheers,

Gday Kev,
I'd also be surprised if the fluid is the problem. But if you replace it, just go down to Nisssan and buy some. Its well priced and they will give you the right stuff - auto transmission fluids have got too complicated on the new vehicles - theres a million sorts to choose from these days.

Does it do it in both in and out of overdrive??
