    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.
