Rich i'm confused myself. I have 2014 nissan altima s. Newer generation. Which website did u use to determine paper cvt filter? are cvts in 2010 different then 2014?

I tried nissanpartsdeal but this is contradiction amazon site

It lists this but ebay list this as maxima and murano filter not altima
https://www.nissanpartsdeal.com/parts/nissan-filter-assy-oil-govenor~31726-28x0a.html?Make=Nissan&Model=Altima&Year=2014&Submodel=Sedan&Filter=(2=QR25DE;3=25S;4=CVT%2fQR25)&Location=torque-converter-housing-case,,31726M

while amazon list this as all 2007 and up

https://www.amazon.com/Nissan-31726-1XF00-RE0F10A-JF011E-CVT/dp/B07CFS33PH
:wink Begin here: https://www.wittrans.com/parts Then hit the TAB "Transmission Guide" then enter "Vehicle Make/Model/Year/Engine/Trans Type (CVT/FWD)".

You will then get the Model Number of the Nissan/Jatco CVT in your 2014 Altima. In this case I think it came up with RE0F09B (I used the V6 engine - change the search criteria if I have the wrong info) OK?

Once you have gotten the model of the CVT figured out, do another search looking for the correct filter. If you click on the HIGHLIGHTED RE0F09 (yes, those are zero's not OHH's). Once you click on the TAB it opens a page showing the exploded diagram of the RE0F09.

Look at the diagram, in the lower half of the pictured diagram the "COOLER" is near the center of the lower picture. In this case you are looking at the COOLER that I refer to as the "TIN-CAN" or Tuna Can Style of cooler.

Next to see if that part is available from this Tranny Parts Vendor ("Whatever It Takes' is a great source BTW), look for the link at the top of the diagram page it will be a BLUE Highlighted RE0F09 (it says Parts Not Pictured, Kits, Manuals, Etc). Click on the link, the next page opens and there you click on "Filters of All Kinds".

Click on the Link "Misc. Filters" the next page to open, is the part page The part is listed as: Number: 203013A, Filter, RE0F09A/09B External (Steel)(On Rear Of Case) 2003-Up. $18.95. You can always call or email Whatever it Takes Transmission Parts to verify!

Let me show you a picture of the TUNA CAN filter.

NOTE: I do not know if there is a paper filter cartridge INSIDE THE TUNA CAN... Perhaps someone can tell us? (to me it looks sealed, and you may have to just replace the whole tin can?)

Yes, the tin can is sealed. That is the external filter/cooler my 2008 Altima V6 uses. I don't know whats inside it as I never opened up my old one.

The 4 cylinder models use a different filter (paper element).

Thank you Rich. That did it and helped a lot. So that cvt fluid paper filter is accessible from under battery and under the air box correct or is that oil cooler tuna can you're referencing in that location?

BTW the tuna can is not a filter i think. Those are parts for cooler you bought. Mine 2014 already has a fluid cooler so i will not be doing any of that. I just need to change cvt fluid paper filter.

I will only be changing the cvt fluid paper filter. I'm also assuming it's part number 013 on this picture here but also noticed it lists two but one is unavailable and looking at dimensions of the paper filter they are different.

Only B is available but A is not and they are different sizes. I'm not sure why they listed two of them. Maybe this can be cross referenced with another site you listed. Thoughts?

Bingo i crossed refference that with amazon listed filter and it's same one. RE0F10A/B, JF011E (CVT), 2007-Up. Funny is that amazon wants $25.39 while that site only asks $5.39. Notice 500% mark up hahaha.

Part number is 31726-1XF00 Filter Cartridge (RE0F10A/B, JF011E)
https://www.amazon.com/Nissan-31726-1XF00-RE0F10A-JF011E-CVT/dp/B07CFS33PH

Maybe some can tell me if this part can be changed from top under the battery?

Guys this thread is gold, very helpful. I think i have figured out why our trannies are failing. @Altima S 2010 gave me a hint and i combined that with what happened to me this summer.

So this summer i got a tranny code, check engine light. I ran torque to scan code in ECU. Code was P0776 Selenoid stuck in off position. Here is the description of this code.

https://www.obd-codes.com/p0776

More specifically the cause i believe it to be this Dirty or contaminated fluid and Dirty or clogged transmission filter which leads to Transmission overheating which leads to Vehicle enters limp mode.

The reason why this is happening is what AltimaS2010 described. Nissan changed the design of the mesh filter for more finer particle trap. Hence this was not implemented before fine metal transmission particles were getting threw the filter and entering transmission components which leads to overheating at first and failure later on.

NOW....what's even more fed up Nissan is telling us both of those filters are non-serviceable and you should not which adds even more failure to this whole situation. I wonder if they are trying to make money on selling us new transmission and us paying for cost of their labor. Imagine if you never change motor oil filter and motor oil as well. What kind of result we would get?

I guess the mesh filter needs to be replaced for newer one to catch more finer part metal particles, that paper filter since it's paper needs to be replaced as well as lets say it has 100,000 miles on it.
Also obviously entire fluid flush needs to be performed to flush out all fine metal particles that are already in the fluid and new fluid which cools down the tranny as old does not do it well anymore as it broke down long time ago chemically so cooling is not efficient anymore. Finer metal particles are also causing overheating on top of worn out tranny fluid.

I can't believe the negligence of Nissan and straight up lies they tell it's customers that buy their cars. This is why they're getting suited.

Bottom line and moral of the story both filters need to be replaced, the mesh metal filter is more important and full flush to get rid of fine metal particles from tranny's fluid which will prevent tranny from overheating which will prevent your Nissan entering limp mode. The new fluid also will be more stable chemically to cool down tranny during operation.

Agreed. Change out both filters, fluid and add the Nissan oil cooler kit and this addresses all the cvt short comings.

:angel Sefyu Thanks for the compliment! (hit the 'thanks' and the 'like' buttons)

OK I assume you have a 2014 Altima 2.5 4 cylinder is that right?

Yes, that is the correct paper filter cartridge for the 2.5L 4-cylinder warmer/cooler aka Heat Exchanger Housing---the other one (which shows none in stock) is TOO LONG and TOO FAT? You should also order the O-Ring from Whatever It Takes Transmission Parts. The part is Part No: 212326A O-Ring, RE0F10A (JF011E) (Nissan/Dodge) Cooler Filter Housing To Case (2.760"OD)(.125"Thick) 2007-Up Price $1.81.

Note in dealing with Whatever It Takes ask them to "mail" you those two parts to save shipping fees. Tiffany is who I dealt with up in Louisville, KY. If you want her email, PM me.

As far as finding the filter housing... It is NOT under the battery tray area it is on the bell house side (aka front of the CVT -- just to the left of the dip stick where it goes into the pan) Once you get under the car look for where the hose attaches from the return port on the radiator. There is a bolt thru the housing on the side facing the front of the car. I plan on trying NOT to have to remove that bolt and line connection from the housing --- You just need to remove the 4 hex head (10mm?) bolts to remove the warmer housing and get to the filter. The new O-Ring needs to be prepped with a bit of NS2 as you replace it and the filter cartridge. FYI the filter goes in witht he rubber end into the housing towards the CVT case to seal against the back of the housing. The end of the filter at the housing cover (re:reinstall the cover) has a metal end.


NOTE: Point of reference, there are at least (3) types of warmer/cooler aka heat exchangers on the CVT that Nissan/Jatco used. I call them in this fashion (per the way they look in thier design) 1) You have the "Cast Metal Housing" 2) You have the "Tin Can", and 3) you have a varity of what I call the 'Aluminum Bee Hive Types' -- these are finned or fluted on the exterior with tubes sticking out, there are round ones, square ones, and retangular ones) I think most V-8 have this type while the V-6 tend to have the Tin Can style. So far that is what I have found.

There is also a metal filter in the pan with a mesh screen that is attached with two short bolts and 1 long bolt (very critical you put the bolts back into the same place they came out of. It bolts to the bottom of the valve body and the long bolt helps hold the valve body in place. That 'mesh' filter can be found using the Transmission Model Number for your vehicle that you got from Whatever Transmission Parts.

I am adding the Nissan Factory Service Kit Transmission Oil Cooler also! I found the best price from an ebay seller called 'Nissan Hawk': NEW OEM NISSAN ALTIMA 2007-2012 CVT TRANSMISSION OIL COOLER SERVICE KIT part number 21606-ZX59A. NissanHawk UPC #273049177767 .)

I got 12qts of fluid at BeelineParts.com -- 12 Qts NS2 NISSAN CVT Transmission Oil (Fluid) From:Was $165.99 with 10% Coupon = $143.39 PLUS 2nd BONUS FREE SHIPPING! I Emailed them and asked for a PROMO code and the sent me one for -10%. Always ask for discounted parts prices and shipping fees! ALWAYS!:nerd

I have located most if not all parts i need for 2014 which btw all parts are same, execpt what you guys call Tuna can which holds that paper filter. What does this part do? Can you help me out locating it?

The year is not mine and it shows actually v6 engine so i think that's not for 2014 altima 2.5 https://www.nissanpartsdeal.com/parts/nissan-filter-assy-oil~31726-1xe0a.html??Make=Nissan&Model=Altima&Year=2014&Submodel=Sedan&Filter=(2=QR25DE;3=25S;4=CVT/QR25)

@Rich in KY ....NO that Tuna can does NOT come with filter. It's only housing assembly which does NOT contain that paper filter. You will need to add paper filter separately. All of our parts match from what i see. The paper filter is same for our cars it seems.

BTW my tranny dipstick is on it's way so i'm excited to check the level and fluid color. It's probably going to be black. lol

Any other parts i need? Anyone know if cvt fluid pan gasket needs replacing or one can reuse it? I am still trying to figure out tuna can part number for 2014 altima?

BTW if anyone wants cheap OEM parts shipped from Japan this site is great at the fraction of the cost of acquired from dealer.
Take a look at mesh filter it's $20 vs $45 from OEM and if you look at the pics you're getting OEM part manufactured in Japan btw.

The "tuna can", I never called it that for the record, is a Murano/Maxima CVT filter part number 31726-1XE0A and may fit other vehicles. It is not a 2007-2012 2.5 cvt filter. Picture and part info is discussed in the very first post and it does in fact contain a filter element.


My thread is getting a bit polluted with the same info being regurgitated... Also, this is the 2007-2012 Altima forum and this thread specifically states "2010 Altima 2.5 S" at the very top of the first post.

No your interpretation is incorrect. Your thread is to help other with service of transmission parts. 90% of parts are same parts so it's irreverent if it's 2014 or 2010 if parts and tranny are same which they are

There is no point of me opening new thread and then actually polluting the board with same discussion if this subject already been opened and is in current discussion which this thread is.

BTW how do you figure ur thread is polluted. You only have 4 pages of content. It's not like this thread is 334 pages...lol....No offense brother. Chill out and help us out please.

Yes, 3 of the 4 pages say the same thing. And tell us, how did your last post contribute to this thread? And do all 2014 owners read the 2007-2012 forum???

Remember, I corrected your misconception about the "tuna can".

chill??? lol

Rich thank you. This is great detailed info here. I was confusing the cooler with paper filter housing unit and it's location. Now i know.

If i'm not mistaken 2014 came already with coolers i think that's one of the comments i read under flush video posted here.

I'll have to check on that again but i'm like 85% sure that's the case and if that is the case no point of me changing it as it's just heat sink from what i see which if not rusted and i don't expect it to be it will function just fine.

Wow so that paper filter suppose to last lifetime of the car? hahah The construction of it resembles very closely to oil filter which the best of them should be changed at 10k miles. lol. Nissan what is wrong with you!

I'll be curious what condition that paper filter will be at my car. I will take some pics and post them here lol. Ludacris advises from Nissan Service. Thank gush for ppl like you and others here that contributed for the good of the community here.

Guys it appears 2014 altima 2.5 has this type of cooler (Nissan CVT Transmission Oil Cooler with O-rings 21606-28X0B) with 4 line which is good,

but now i don't know which line to use to drain the remaining tranny fluid for full flush?

I think it's ports with black caps but the one that's bump on it or the one without the bump? Can someone confirm please?

Black caps - the hoses contain NS3 fluid and go to and back from the radiator ( NS3 oil cooling function)
Yellow caps - the hoses contain contain engine coolant and go to and back from the engine block to transfer heat from the engine coolant to the NS3 fluid (NS3 oil warming functon).

Most of the time engine coolant is not circulating through the lines connecting to the ports with the yellow caps as flow is regulated by an inline thermostat.

So to drain tranny fluid from tranny disconnect hose where black cap is but hose where the bulge is at or the one without the bulge?

The black cap without the bulge is the return line from the radiator. Your photo shows the oil warmer upside down from its actual installation orientation on the CVT.
