Okay well i have a 96 GXE, dont know how much different both our cars are but in my owner's manual it says 12,000 miles for poor weather/driving conditions and 24,000 miles for normal conditions. I have a 5 speed and I just got this car so I dont know how much to put in there. I'll double check that as soon as i find out.

the process is simple.

the schedule of maintenance varies with how you drive tho. i think the book says 30k but if you drive hard or like constant up hill or you do stupid stuff with your car like burnouts, then it gets less and less. Heat is what determines how long the fluid will effectively last.

On a b13 the auto tranny filter is just a very fine mesh screen. My nissan tech said as long as you change your ATF once a year you don't need to replace the filter. I did drop my pan to clean up the build up of metal shavings that were on the magnets and cleaned the pan itself. BTW i only use Mobil 1 ATF and drain my fluid once a year, 93k miles so far and no tranny problems for me...:)

I'm going to be changing my transmission fluid soon, does anyone know if any chain auto parts stores sell Redline Racing MT-90? If not does anyone know where I can get it cheaply online? I know summitracing.com has it for $8 a quart, but I was wondering if anywhere else has it cheaper.

Also how much wil I need to buy? I'm figuring 3 or 4 quarts, but not sure which.

Thanks

Mobil 1 ATF, about five bucks a quart at autozone and worth every penny. Oh yeah pickup 4 quarts...
