this does not apply to fwd. you dont have a transfer-case, which is attached to the transmission and sends power to the rear wheels via a propeller shaft.nathansang2012 wrote:I have a 09 SL FWD. Does this apply only to AWD?

nope, Front Wheel Drive cars dont have a transfer-case nor a rear differential. the rear wheels are free spinning.nathansang2012 wrote:So in my case, i can only do the rear differential fluid change, right? Or is it connected to the transmission and it should only be serviced by the dealer?
I know, I should have gone to the rear differential thread for these questions.
i will hit 50k probably next month or so, and will be doing this and the rear Diff again in the spring. glad this writeup helped you guys out!Sanders630 wrote:just did both this yesterday. Wife's rogue just hit 50K miles.
Rear differential was a piece of cake. The transfer case wasn't too bad either. Tougher definitely because of the positioning. I was better using a ten and a six inch extension. The 18 inch was too close to the shock tube for clearance for the wrench. Anyway the fill plug broke pretty easy. The hardest part was filling it up with the car level and not jacked up. Luckily I'm a skinny guy so but wanted to make sure the fill level was right.
On the feel it does feel smoother but, I don't drive the rogue all that often it's my wife's car. Waiting on her to drive it and see what she says.
You should. Its the same fluid and gets used the same way.keitarosan wrote:Do you have to change the Differential fluid at the same time with the transfer fluid????
fwd's dont have transfercases or rear differentials.engineer20 wrote:This is for the awd, right? It's located towards the front? Not the same thing as the rear differential? For the newest generation, or 2015 rogue, is the viscocity the same? For the awd maintenance, do you change both the transfer case fluid and rear differential fluid at 30k, or just one, and it's not a simple drain and fill procedue, you need a fluid transfer pump, correct? Thanks. What about just using a siphon or regular tube?
You want to fill both the transfer case and differential until the oil starts to spill out.nkroguea wrote: ↑Thu Nov 22, 2018 9:05 amHi, I just did this yesterday not fun. At first I think I put too much in thinking you pump it til it comes out of the filler hole which is wrong correct?? The dealer told me 3/4 pint which is about 12 ounces total is this correct?? Only like 9 ounces came out! Also the tube fell out of the filler hole a couple times kinda messy. Now I have burnt crayon smell, is this just gear oil burn off or something inside?? Please chime in someone.. thanks
Awesome info, thanks! Can you describe the procedure you used for the CVT without having a dipstick, and how you measured fluid?Bern wrote: ↑Sun Nov 03, 2019 2:16 pmI just changed the fluid in my 2016 Rogue transaxle and differential. The Rogue has 100,000km on it and its the first time either have been changed.
As already stated, this year has a different transaxle than the original post. The location is the same, but the drain/fill plugs are a little different, however it was pretty easy to figure them out. Both plugs removed easily however the fill plug still required an 18" extension for the socket wrench. The oil coming out of the transaxle actually didnt seem too bad. It was obviously dark but smelled fine. I think I was expecting it to be in worse shape than it was. The odd thing was that only about 3/4 of a cup came out. I refilled it to the bottom of the fill hole with about 2 cups of 80W 90.
The differential was uneventful. The two bolts removed easily and the fluid came out and actually looked to be in great condition. The fill and reinstallation of the plugs was uneventful. I also changed the oil and transmission fluid at the same time. Total time was about three hours. The link below shows the transaxle associated with the newer Rogues. You can see the fill plug is to the left of the black seal and the drain plug is to the right.
