I need to know the best trans fluid to use and pricing on that fluid and how much to have a routine drain and change trans fluid will cost at the dealer ship. Thanks.
+1 I'm curious about this as wellIf you put something other than OEM and have a transmission problem, how will that affect the warranty?
+ a gazillion. Inconsistent answers on this one. For the clearly structural related failures (clutch seals, solenoid failures, etc.) they have warrnted with aftermarket fluid, because there is NO WAY the fluid could have caused those failures.Nissan has gone both ways on this. I've heard of trans that are filled with Willall being warrantied and others denied because of Willall or aftermarket fluid. I don't think there is a clear cut answer on this one.
Crazy GTR tax on even some transmission oils.My understanding is willal "light" is the same color as OEM, and still protects much much better....at least thats what the guys at Forged told me
Should make it a little more difficult for Nissan to deny your warranty unless they are going to do lab tests on the oil.
Oil has been running pretty good in my 09 tranny so far.
Whether or not I'll reach high temp with a cooler kit, its for peace of mind along with better tranny fluid. I believe more care is needed for the GR6 gearbox. And in Malaysia we're able to run up very high speeds on our highways for long durations.I would stick with oem and I doubt you will reach high temp with 2012 GTR with a cooler. So to me the fluid are within the temp specs. Locally the two GTRs have bad tranny are both on none oem fluids. It might or might not be the cause, but no issues with me and bro's GTR on oem.
Pentosin FFL-4 since a lot of the Malaysians gt-rs use this fluid. Since you have no warranty I would say try it.Whether or not I'll reach high temp with a cooler kit, its for peace of mind along with better tranny fluid.

This is why better tranny fluid, tranny cooler kit and a differential cooler kit is advisable for our climate and driving styles.
Let me know your thoughts on Moty's. Seems allot of people have gone off elsewhere after trying WILLALL. Seems like more people prefer Pentosin, Moty's and Dodson.You can try Moty's from Japan, lots of JDM tuners use it for their GT-R.
I got a 20L pail from N1Racing. Can't comment on its performance since I'm going to fill mine this weekend. All I can say is that the price is much more reasonable compare to other aftermarket oil, basically half the cost based on my calculations.
