During drain and fill between 3-4 quarts of fluid comes out. NOTE: The 5 speeds are known to have various problems the ATF takes too much beating from the various parts inside (clutch packs & torque converter) And along with overheating which causes strain and stress on the ATF!!! ATF life is shortened thus causing the color and smell to change from red/pink to dark red/brown/black. If you let your color change this much it is a ticking bomb to blow....as in your transmission will not last!!! DO IT BEFORE ITS TOO LATE If your over 60,000 miles and never changed it. well bad news for you sir your transmission will die in a matter of few thousand miles...... If your into making your "maxima" faster make sure you check these before you get stranded. Synthetic ATF lasts more during extreme conditions and does not break down easily under stress and Track/Racing/Heavy Loads
