Necro post but see:

Nissan CVT Fluid 1

and

Nissan CVT Fluid 2

These CVT fluids are very, very different from Step-Shift transmission fluids and tractor fluids.

Each application has a completely different set of requirements and additive chemstries.

None of these fluids are interchangeable across applications.

E.g, do not put a Step-Shift ATF fluid in a CVT or a tractor fluid in ANY AT transmission, or a CVT fluid in a Step-Shift transmission.

BTW, the Amsoil CVT fluid has been upgraded to cover Nissan's NS-3 CVT spec.

Amsoil has a great application guide with accurate specs on which product to use in which model of cars. I would highly advise using that. I have been using Amsoil oil and Transmission fluid for almost 2 decades and have tons of miles on original engines and transmissions without issues that are always spotlessly clean. They know their stuff that is for sure.

I would also highly recommend their CVT fluid over the Nissan fluid. When the CVT failures were happening in the first generation Nissan transmissions Amsoil studied the problem and developed a fluid based on their transmissions and it outperforms Nissan fluid hands down. They have pictures on their site showing the differences.

everything OE is manufactured to a price point for the profit desired!! aftermarket is similar + seeing Amsoils prices it should be better a LOT better!!! since they answer NO questions about the makeup of their lubes i QUIT using them, your $$$ + choice.

For the Nissan NS-3 crowd:
I did 2 spill-and-fills on an abused 80K mile 2015 Altima. Used Valvoline CVT fluid.
Really smoothed out that tranny.
Fluid was less that $10 per quart.

I want to second this also.

A few months back, I went to Advance Auto Parts and was lucky to find Castrol CVT for $5 a bottle. I bought 5 and did a transmission fluid change on my 2008 Nissan Maxima. Car drives great. Transmission shifts like butter. Car has 243,500 miles on odometer as I am typing this. Plus, I am the original owner. I bought it brand new in 2008 and have changed the transmission fluid probably like 4 times now. This was the first time I have used something else other than Nissan CVT fluid.

I am sure Valvoline CVT fluid too would offer the same kind of protection.

I wish the day I had bought the fluid, I could have bought enough to change my fluid again like 6 months down the road just because I got it super cheap.


2012 Infiniti QX56. 133,000 miles. Using a larger filter (K&N Hp-4001) with 0W20.
2008 Nissan Maxima. 245,000 miles. Using 5w30 with stock filter.

I used castrol cvt in my wife’s Murano after the 10/120k warranty expired and it was fine for around 100k and I never had the dealer service it. My altima had dealer service at recommended intervals and it failed at 90k. Nissan never batted an eye and replaced it the next day. My wife’s 2018 rogue has a cvt but feels nothing like the first ones, it actually shifts like a normal tranny.

Not when mine failed. Clear as day and no burnt smell. My cvt didn’t actually fail, it just started whining during a hot trip home from stlouis
