2002 Frontier KC 2.4L
Is there a write up on how to change the manual transmission fluid? Also, does the 2.4L engine have a timing chain? I guess there is no maintenance to be done. I'm trying to figure out what maintenance needs to be performed on a 2002 with 155k miles. I'm going to replace the fluids (oil, transmission, etc.). I'm also going to replace the plugs and all 4 brakes. Is there anything else I should look into?
The Manual tranny is very easy to service.
Drain the fluid, and refill in the top plug on the side of the trans until it pours back out.
I highly reccomend Amsoil Manual trans gear oil 75w90 GL4.
Works great in my 04.
The engine does use a timing chain ,and it is a mantinence free design.
If you dont use Amsoil make sure you use only a GL4 75w90 or Nissans own 75W85 fluid.
Do not use anything labled GL5.
I would also service the rear diff which only requires a basic 80w90 GL5 gear lube. If you service the rear diff use a thread sealent on the drain and fill plug.
I didnt the first time I serviced mine ,and it had light seepage.

I'll use thread sealant. I'll also try to replace the PCV valve and fuel filter. What about brake fluid? Should I flush the brake system?
I have one last question about the transmission fluid. Were you guys able to fill the transmission and differential with just the squeeze bottle type fitting the transmission fluid comes in, or should I purchase a pump? Is there a place that sells a hand pump that screws onto the bottle? It would have to be local because I'm doing this tomorrow (Pep boys, Advanced, autozone).
