What is the automatic transmission fluid capacity for a 1985 Nissan 300Zx and how often I need to change the fluid and filter?
Only an ashless type petroleum based ATF should be used to repair Nissan vehicles because other types of ATF may contain compounds which adversely affect transmission performance. Specifically, ash will impact friction response. In addition, ATF with ash is likely to have a higher Zinc (Zn) content. Zinc will adhere to clutch linings and cause slippage, resulting in transmission damage.
Nissan ATF or DEXRON ATF is fine.
The amount of fluid that should be used should be approximately 7 to 8 quarts. Put in 7 quarts then check the level with the dip stick. Add additional fluid if necessary.
The duration for a transmission fluid change should be between 30 to 50 thousand miles.
That was an excellent answer. Thanks TechHelp2
