  1. 3.0t
    Just wanting to see if anyone happens to know if I can use Nissan oem atf for the initial fill and drain/s, and final fill using motul atf. I would not be “mixing” the fluids, only using oem atf to save money, but after fully draining, I’d do the final fill with the motul. I’m pretty sure this...

    New to this forum but loving it so far. I searched but couldn't find exactly the help I'm looking for so I thought I'd post what's going on. Bought a used 2015 3.7L Q50 RWD at 30k miles. It's now at 60k miles and the transmission went. Took it to the dealer who wanted to put a new...

    HELP. My 2014 q50s automatic transmission valve body went bad on me so instead of replacing that part I opted to buy a used lower mileage transmission from another q50. The mechanic has installed the newer transmission but cannot get it to start so he can put the transmission fluid in it. I...

    Hi guys, I have a weird problem with the transmission, wanted to ask for your opinion. On my way to work suddenly the gearbox stucked on 3rd gear, on 3rd gear the rpm goes up but there is no change to 4th gear.

  6. 3.0t
    I Just had my car tuned and never noticed it before, however, when I am crusing at 60 and floor it, the engine jerks. It feels like the transmission is not matching speed with the engine. Does anyone else have the same issue? Mods: Drop in KN, LDP, CBE, and Tune TIA

    I’ve asked before about the transmission service on my 2017 Q50 Premium RWD. Recently Z1 has come out with the “kit” which includes the quarts of oil, the washer, and the gasket so you can completely drop the pan. Has anyone done this or is it best to just switch out the fluids. I’ve never...
  8. Q50 General Discussion Forum
    To start off I have a 2017 Q50 3.0 T Premium. I have read that some choose not to listen to the dealer or service manual about the transmission not needing service. What are thoughts on this? Does the transmission fluid really last the life of the car or should I get it changed at a shop? Car...

    Saw a post where AMS has the turbo upgrade kit for around 9k ( not just the stage 2 turbos on their site). My question is this. Still planning on upgrading the down pipes and exhaust as well as the heat exchanger but can you just throw a kit like that on a car or just upgrade the turbos...

    My transmission does not shift past 3rd gear. I purchased my car in 2018 and have never had my transmission serviced. In 2018, my car had 37000 miles, today it has 99860. Could I have ruined my transmission and now could I be looking at an overhaul or new trans problem? Share your thoughts
  12. 3.7
    I got my 2014 q50 tuned a couple months ago and noticed that it shifts weird but it just feels sluggish and idk if it’s because the 7AT is just a poorly design but it just feels as if it’s trying to put more power than it’s used to so it doesn’t know what to do, is it normal for it to take about...

    I have a 17 Q50 Red Sport. I got it used with 56k miles. When I first got it, I hadn’t noticed any problems with the transmission/engine etc. It was fine. I removed my resonators & that’s all I’ve done to the car. About 2 months ago I was at a red light & I floored it. When it got to 3rd gear...
