Auto transmission fluid capacity

Hi everyone. This is my first post here, so it'll also serve as my introduction. My name is Dmitry, and I drive a 2003, 2.4L toyota tacoma manual 5-speed. My mom though has a 2005 Altima 2.5L with the 4-speed (pretty sure) auto tranny, now with 31k miles. So far the car has performed flawlessly and we have not had a single problem. Wanting to keep it that way, its time to do the 30k maintenance. Now, my dad and I don't let a mechanic come near our cars unless it requires warranty work or its just something that we absolutely can't do ourselves, and regular maintenance is no exception. Looking through the manual, I found drain and fill capacities for everything except the auto transmission. For some reason it doesn't list transmission pan drain and fill capacity and the total fluid capacity like the manual for my truck. I don't want to do a full flush because it not required and really not necessary at this point, and naturally I will use the Nissan genuine fluids. So if someone can give me the auto tranny fluid drain and fill, and the total capacity, or direct me to where I can find this info, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks a lot.

Dmitry

Awesome. That answers part of my question, thanks a lot. So, I figure that if I buy 5 quarts of fluid, that should cover the oil pan drain and fill, right? That would be about half of the fluid replaced.

I just flushed mine last week. Took around 20 minutes. Buy 10 quarts and use some old gallon containers. Drain the tranny with the plug, about 4-5 quarts will come out. Then just add that much back in. The rest is in the tranny, converter, and cooler. So now you just take out the line from the tranny cooler in the radiator (It is the one more towards the passenger side. I pulled the wrong one first and it came out the rad. when I started it.) Now just push the hose you pulled off the radiator and stick it in the gallon jug. Start the car and let the tranny pump out about 2 quarts (half of the gallon). The stop it and fill up the tranny with 2 more quarts. The fluid doesnt come out all that fast so you can do it yourself, I did. Then just do it again and fill up the container with 2 more quarts. Now you should just about cleared all of the old fluid. I went ahead and did the whole 10 quarts and it started coming out perfectly clean and clear just after 9 quarts. When you are done, let it warm up and check the fluid level one last time. Finished.

So the DIY tranny flush cost me 25 dollars and took about 25 minutes total. And there was not added strain on the tranny pump from using a machine. Its really pretty simple. Good luck.
