The consumer is request reimbursement for services rendered. Post pictures, share modifications, ask questions and discuss your love for the most important letter in the alphabet. A real-time learning algorithm helped the transmission continuously tailor shifting performance to the driver's habits and patterns. After the change, the clutch is like new. And so, with the 350Z's mechanical components squarely aimed at a well-rounded, highly entertaining sports-driving experience, all that remained to complete the picture was a suitable cabin environment.
The reservoir method is easier because you don't have to bleed the system. If there is another source of contamination, its a common problem. Two independent transmission experts stated it was highly unlikely that a burned clutch and grooved flywheel was due to owner abuse as the dealer had stated. I'm less concerned about that for the clutch though because there's only a single line to bleed. Then, at the same time, you slowly add Clean fluid in the resevior. I did my research and figured out that there was a problem with the slave cylinder, or the clutch fluid, because I had run into people with the same problems.

Shift feel was designed to have short strokes between very well-defined gates. Add as necessary, usually another 1-2. Sometimes the tubing is a little too tight and difficult to slip on to the screw - in this case heating the tubing up with a torch can make it more loose and possible to slip over the screw. I really just wanted to know if anyone knew how many qts would get me in the ball park. Just make sure to bleed the system once the new one is in. Nissan was justifiably proud of the work it did on the Z's automatic transmission and applied for approximately 100 patents on this gearbox in Japan.
I can still shift but the clutch pedal feels very very weak now. Drain the fluid from the reservoir, remove the hose and unscrew the holding nuts from inside the car. Wear gloves, as it pours out very fast. The transmission's direct-control system used individual actuators to regulate the pressure of each clutch and band and offered synchronized, torque-managed shifts from 1st to 4th gears. After reading about how the clutch fluid can affect the clutch engagement, I decided to change mine. I'll keep you guys posted. Use a hand-held pump to pump new fluid from the bottles into the trans.
Add as necessary, usually another 1-2. Motul performs better in almost every category except price. Again, be careful because this is the messy part. I've seen other G35s with similar looking clutch reservoirs. Keeps the fluid clean and hopefully removes any abrasive clutchy bits from the seals and rubber pistons.
Do not mix with other fluids. Looking into buying a 350z? I haven't looked specifically at the G's slave cylinder, but it should be well isolated from excess heat. Clean any metal shavings off of the magnet. The 1st- and 2nd-gear synchronizers were a durable, double-cone design that used copper-alloy double baulk rings to allow the gears to mesh more smoothly during shifting. This link also has a vintage vehicle lookup, along with a power sports oil and filter guide. Draw out the nasty fluid until you see the bottom of the reservoir. I'd look for another source of contamination.
Notice that the drain plug has a magnet on the end of it. That being said, I opened it about a month ago, and it will be gone in the next month.

Then check the fluid again with the engine running, in park, and see how much more you need to add. After reading about how the clutch fluid can affect the clutch engagement, I decided to change mine. A viscous limited-slip differential was standard on all Zs except the base model. Jack up car and place on jackstands.
