Thanx for sharing jdm .
Yes, it will work. I bought one from an 06 Maxima [that year also has the "upgraded" valve body from Nissan] when I thought I would have to change out the transmission I just rebuilt.So would the maxima transmission or any other one work because I can't find a se r transmission
Just so everyone knows, Level 10 does not only charge you $150.00 for this valve body when all is said and done. It is $698.00+$500.00=$1198.00 + shipping of $30.00 (and not counting what you pay in shipping to send yours back to get your $500.00 core refund credited).
Hey! I was wondering if you did the relearn after you installed the valve body? I’m asking cuz I changed the valve body on my Altima SER and now it goes on limp mode and also slams when I put it in drive.I would also like to add that even though I rebuilt my valve body with a $300 "zip kit" from Sonnax, and even swapped out a valve body from a Maxima, my transmission problems didn't go away until I spent $1k for a brand new valve body.
The problem as I can see it is that the valve body housing itself gets warped from over heating, and this causes the valves to stick in the bores. With that being said, there is nothing that can be done to fix the problem.
There is a way to protect your current valve body if it hasn't gone bad yet. In other words if your transmission is still shifting good, then the valve body should be good.
So here it the problem. The factory trans cooler is too small, and is attached to the transmission, and not even in a place for good air flow [yes I know its water cooled, and that is also part of the problem].
Also, I took apart the cooling line valve going to the trans cooler, and found a thermostat quite like the one used in the engine. There is no way to tell [that I know of] when this thermostat goes bad. If the thermostat goes bad there will be no more water going to the cooler, and no way of cooling the trans fluid.
The solution is to add an external cooler, and while your at it, an inline transmission filter. You can find the filter at Summit Racing, just do a search on "inline transmission filter".
This should keep your valve body from warping, and keep your fluid clean.
