My advice: stay just with the Nissan CVT oil. No additives, no messing around. This is not the ar to start experiments in oil chemistry.

Not a dipstick, it"s a screw-in plug that"s a pain in the butt to reach. The process is defined here and I"m certain you can discover it through a quick search. Most likely in the maintain forum.There"s a inspect plug ~ above the driver"s side of the transfer situation which is daunting to reach - having precisely the best wrench through the best bend angle in the handle really, really helps - and also it"s a cheap harbor Freight part. Access is right beside the exhaust, so inspect it once the auto is cold.

Agree on sticking v NS2 Transmission fluid only through no additives. The good news is that there room other choices now that are rated NS2. I freshly did a finish flush on my 2004 MO SE AWD many thanks to instructions on this forum (under Maintenance). I offered Valvoline CVT liquid (NS2 rated) in ~ $9.99/qt (versus $19.99 for Nissan brand). Castrol additionally makes a CVT fluid. Took 11 quarts and also a couple of hours to do right, but glad i did. Come me, the Murano feels more responsive with less lag time ~ above the CVT spinning up to relocate the car and the gas mileage seems to have actually improved. The infection whine I got under heavy load is additionally gone. I placed in the caveats on mine impressions due to the fact that this is all subjective, seat-of-the-pants driving feel. I can"t say objectively the the fluid readjust made the difference, however I was means overdue for a flush per the owner"s hand-operated (i.e., ns towed rather a bit in the warmth months and also use a top box because that skiing in the winter months - all offers that an outcome in the OM recommending a readjust of CVT fluid at 60K mile - go mine at 110,500!).
