This is really irritating the living !#$*%(*@%#(!!!! out of me cuz I know it's gotta be in this forum somewhere and the search is useless.

Can anyone tell me what size the drain plug on the 2nd gen auto tranny is, please??

lol i dont think anyone has lost theirs yet.

you?
Nope, but I want to order an adapter so I can put a temp sender in the drain plug. And once the plug is pulled & the truck's disabled, I know there's no where around here I can go running the plug around trying to find a match.

oh, understood. hmmm i could be wrong but i think the titans big tow comes with a trans temp gauge. the sender is right here

you will have to find the fitting. i see that the drain plug your looking for is a 10mm?dont quote me, its what i found though. dont know the thread depth but most people use a t fitting on the return line because its the closest to the interior. but no one likes it because its cutting a trans line. so people are doing the test fitting.

i think there is a kit to. but i am zee lazy. i think that should do it for you.

10 mm? Not to doubt you but where did you find that? (cuz I spent a farking hour searching googling & yahooing & didn't find doodleysquat, including the FSM)

I've got the thread with that fitting on the side of the tranny pulled up, I'm keeping that as a plan B but I'd rather get the temp straight from the pan, if I can.

i searched through titans. i havent seen a frontier with a tranny temp gauge yet.

but if you get that kit and use the test side fitting like pictured you wont need that.
but people were not digging the t fitting.

Er, wait a sec... I think lines got crossed somewhere.

I'm trying to find the size of the drain plug, y'know, the bolt you take out to drain the ATF from the pan?
