Thanks for sharing... I was hoping to see someone tear one down..
There is a thread about it on thenewx.
I just test drove an 06 Pathy for the wife. I assume the pathy's can get SMOD too correct?
Yep. Anything that used Matic J is susceptible. If it still has J in it, try to get them to flush the tranny with S.

Urban myth. The problem stems from faulty design/construction of the Calsonic (Nissan subsidiary) radiator, not the ATF.
That is correct. I am not sure of the model years at risk.
Yeah, Pathfinders had this issue too.
Make sure you get the V8 pathy so you can diff swap with your wife![emoji6]
Yes, my '05 Pathy got SMOD. We saved it with several flushes and a new radiator. The solution is to fix the root cause - the radiator. Much less expensive than flushes or a new tranny.
