I use Oando Dextron III instead.

... Pls is true i must change the ATF fluid of my car every six months?

Ideally it shouldn't be so. But the quality of most oil sold in Nigeria is the issue.
A good ATF should go some years.

If your transmission has a dipstick, only check fluid level when engine has warmed up as you can see in the image.

Excess transmission fluid will cause foaming in any transmission. Foam does not flow like oil, reducing cooling and lubrication. This will lead to erratic gear shifting and may lead to Transmission damage.

Make sure to use the right Transmission Fluid for your Tranny.

How can I know what is enough when filling transmission fluid? Better still, how many liters will fill a Nissan quest 2005 sport? Do you have Nissan matic k in stock?

The 5gear transmission for your vehicle needs 7.1Litres for a complete fill. However when draining and filling, some oil in the torque-converter will not drain out. So the safe way to go is to refill with exactly the quantity that drains out (as long as you dont have leakages).

Some older quests come with 4-gear transmission and this needs Matic D fluid while
The Quests with 5-gear transmission needs Matic-K fluid.

We have Matic-K in stock. It costs N6000 per litre

Bros, your engine is now a chairman and I wont recommend the ideal oil. I'll recommend the Castrol GTX with Antisludge 20w50 N7000 for 5Litres keg.
You can use a Dexron III for your gear.

Sorry, missed your message.
Honda ATF-Z1 is recommended for your vehicle. However, this has been replaced with Honda DW-1 which is backward compatible.

So, use the Honda DW-1 Atf.

The recommended Toyota Oil is Type T-IV. If you can afford the Original Toyota ATF, then it will last you 3years (30,000miles).

Are you using a Ford vehicle with Automatic Transmission? If yes, then note this

From 2011, Ford transitioned from Mercon V ATF to Mercon LV ATF.

Never mix the two as this can damage your tranny.

The Mercon LV is a lower viscosity fluid meant for the later transmissions from 2011.

You can reach us on 0810 068 6696 or 08057266064 for Genuine Motorcraft Mercon V and Mercon LV.

Well, if you got the car brand new, simply adhere to the Service Manual which will tell you when to change.

If you got the car from someone, then you can inspect the oil. Should have a redish/pinkish colour but this again varies depending on transmission. The oil should never be black as an engine oil. If it is, then its time to flush and change.

Also, if you feel a slight shudder when gear changes, then it might be a right time to change.

Most oil in Nigeria are for Automatic Transmissions. The 75w90 don't come cheap so are not easily available.

See image and cost above for the Oil we have. Note that this is Fully Synthetic and will last a very long time.

I have not seen this oil before. However, it has synthetic written on it and then Dexron III. This is contradictory. Dexron III is not a synthetic oil.

Dexron III should work on your car however Honda strongly recommends the DW-1 oil.
