If so did you use D-Matic or other for flushing?? But I am not sure how to exactly do it. Hastings air filter features permapleat construction that forms dividers between pleats and prevents bunching for insured uniform air flow. Anyone who has changed oil can do it. It really does make the truck shift a whole lot smoother also! Of course, if you don't know what you're doing and don't work much on cars, then you may not want to tackle this job. Too much can damage the transmission. Fluid looks brown, no idea service history as I just bought it. Nissan had to pay for it.
I was surprised the first time I did this that the drain bolt has a copper crush washer on it which the manual said nothing about. Make sure you accurately measure the amount drained so you know how much to put back in. How does the dealer do the flush if they cant take the hose off the radiator and flush it out of there? The standard Sentra variants get a new 2. I would definitely suggest having the fluid serviced. Master tech informed me that their was a recall on it aswell. I did some research and found this as a fix. Thats definitely worth the money in my opinion.
A helical limited-slip differential is available on Spec V models. I think this will be a better approach because although I will not get all the fluid out I can change it more frequently as a compensation around 75k it will be cheaper and I know what I'm putting in the car and what I've done. The properties of this oil are that under compression, it turns 'plastic'. It is different fluid because it is a totally different kind of transmission. The Sentra remains available only as a four-door sedan but it is significantly larger than the former model, due to the recent launch of the smaller Nissan Versa, which is sized more closely to the old Sentra. LarryT, Say you drained and filled 4 times.
However, you do not have to use a dealer to do the service. . Ingress and egress are much improved as well. Do parts shops have these or do I have to go to the dealer? I am all about saving money and doing things myself when I can but without a lift I know this is going to be extremely messy. I asked 7 dealers how much fluid I need to do a full change and I got answers ranging from 1 quart to 11 quarts.
Still had to pull off the bumper to install the cooling radiator. This replacement item is carefully fashioned to perform like the original air filter that came with your vehicle. But I don't trust them and I would like to change the fluid myself. The new Sentra is available in three models, a bargain-priced base 2. It took me an hour by myself.
Did you fill, run to temp, drain 4 times or just pour through?. This probably sounds more complicated than it is. This is how you know youve got the issue. For one thing its not easy to even get it in, there is no dipstick. Torque it down to about 25 ft-lbs when you put it back up there.
I drive this car easy because its my commuter and its no sports car but this seems to have done the trick!! Clean the pan, then take off the 4 10mm bolts that hold on the filter put on the new filter and re install the pan then bam refill with the same amount of oil and you are done. And if you did put the wrong fluid in it, whether or not the trouble began before, then Nissan, or whoever it is that is liable under the warranty, has a good excuse to void the warranty. So there is no way to tighten the Pulstar spark plugs because 15ml does not fit the the cylinder where the spark plug is. Also, do you happen to know when I need to change my time belt? Densetsu wrote: Well, I'll be damned. No, that's not as typo. Ended up being pull the plug, let it drain, and refill. The Sentra has more optional premium equipment available than ever before.
For a car this expensive, I don't understand why anyone would try to cut corners by partially replacing fluid intermittently. After the fourth drain and fill, the old comes out clean red just as it went in. Why wouldn't you change the filter? I change mine every 15k miles. Thankfully, I had extras that I had gotten from the Infiniti parts dept for the oil drain plug it was the same size for oil changes. You need 15ml socket to tighten them and 14ml what you need to untighten and tighten the original spark plugs is a really snug fit. I just re-used the old bolts when I changed the filter, the level's been roughly the same since last year so I'll just leave it. But if you have to disconnect at the cooler I wouldn't worry about the little bit in that line.
The so-called Nissan Advanced Airbag System is standard on all Sentras; it includes front-seat side-mounted air bags and also roof-mounted side-impact curtain bags. So drain, fill with amount that came out, run to operating temp, then start all over? Its a great service and the dealership can also let you know about any possible open recalls. For instance, the center console has multiple storage bins; there's an overhead, integrated compact disc holder built into the sun visor; and the glovebox is designed to fit a large notebook or map book. And yes, warm up the transmission by drivng around the block less than 5 minutes and you'll be good. You need 15ml socket to tighten them and 14ml what you need to untighten and tighten the original spark plugs is a really snug fit. Routine maitenance sucks to pay for sometimes, especially at the 30k mile intervals, but it's worth it in the long run if you plan on holding onto your car for awhile. Same fluid for 4 times or different.
