Can I use ATF in CVT?

ATF is used to lubricate and actuate a more conventional transmission consisting of a hydraulic pump, a set of gears, clutch discs and bands. It is not going to do the job with CVT transmissions that are gearless systems of chain-driven or belt-driven conical blocks or pulleys or discs and rollers.

What color is Nissan CVT fluid?

Nissan CVT fluid is golden in color like motor oil. At no time was it ever red. Nissan is very explicit about using only their fluid as it’s specifically engineered for their CVT’s. The fluid is actually an integral part of the CVT’s operation and was a major breakthrough in terms of CVT technology.

What happens if you put ATF fluid in CVT?

In a CVT transmission, it is impossible to drain all of the CVT fluid. If you have accidentally added ATF, your transmission would then contain a mixture of ATF and CVT fluids. Eventually, however, permanent damage will occur and you have to rebuild your transmission.

What’s so cool about Nissan’s toroidal CVT?

Perhaps even cooler is the specialized lubricant that Nissan developed that’s able to fit between the toroidal CVT internals while still being able to transmit power. Its molecules are actually shaped to lock together when compressed so that the power roller and discs can still transfer force, even when there’s a lubricant in between them.

Which Nissan vehicles have CVT transmission?
