04-07 TRANSFER CASE CAPACITY (4x4 ONLY)



The 05 Titan manual that came with my Titan does not have the transfer case fluid capacity listed...see note below on volume used.

The NISSAN SERVICE AND MAINTENANCE GUIDE that came with my Titan lists the following PREMIUM MAINTENANCE service schedule dates for the transfer case:

7,500 miles or 6 Months: Inspect transfer case oil (4WD/AWD).

15,000 miles or 12 Months: Inspect transfer case oil (4WD/AWD).

22,500 miles or 18 Months: Inspect transfer case oil (4WD/AWD).



30,000 miles or 24 Months: REPLACE TRANSFER CASE OIL!!! (4WD/AWD).



37,500 miles or 30 Months: Inspect transfer case oil (4WD/AWD).

45,00 miles or 36 Months: Inspect transfer case oil (4WD/AWD).

The Titan manual calls for "Genuine NISSAN Matic D ATF Fluid and also lists (ATF), DEXRON-tm III/MERCON-tm, or equivalent ATF may be used".

For those wanting to use a full synthetic replacement fluid Amsoil SYNTHETIC ATF is fully compatible for replacement of OEM Transfer Case fluid.

My notes from my old 04 Titan manual says to fill with 2-1/8 qts. or 68 0zs. or 4.250 pts.



Steps and Tools Needed to Drain and Refill the Transfer Case Fluid (to be done after warm-up):

1- Remove the Skid Pan ( if equipped ) bolts with a 12 MM metric socket.

Three center bolts are removed and the outer two are loosened to slide the Skid Pan off to access the drain and fill plugs on the back of the Transfer Case.

2- Remove the fill and drain plugs with a 10 MM or 3/8" Allen Wrench.

3- Reinstall Drain Plug (reseal plug with red RTV high temperature sealant) and Refill with new ATF fluid using a "Coastal Fluid" Transfer Pump. see thread:

4- Inspect front and rear shaft seals for signs of leakage.

5- Install Fill plug (reseal plug with red RTV high temperature sealant) and Skid Plate.

Happy "Transfer Case Fluid Changing!"
