Default 04 Maxima Transmission shop manual- RE5F22-

Hello All,

I will be replacing my nissan maxiam 04 valvebody/ solenoid tomorrow and would like some instructions. Yesterday, I bit the bullet and purchased from the dealer a Valvebody for my RE5F22 and was hoping to find in the shop manuals section of the forums the transmission shop manuel, but no such luck. Can anyone help out. That would be cool.

Did you were able to find the "Automatic Transmission" (AT) section in the service manual?

I did find the AT section of the shop manuel. Is there a "How -to" break down on this R&R you know of? I will be getting started in a few hours. Any words of wisdom?

Well, I changed the valve body and it went well. The problem is solved. FYI, the gears were slipping mainly when going from 2 to 3 gear. The dealer wanted me to replace the transmission..not... I did file a complaint.. In hopes of some day getting back my money.. The valve body swop out was not very difficult. there are 2 sizes of bolt heads you will see 6 Mil torx head( 5 star) and a 10 mil. You will remove the 10 mil bolts(there were i think 10 or 12) and the plastic clips will need to be removed as well( you will see them). These plastic clip will be fragile, so be careful. Once the bolts were removed the valve body basically falls into your hands. now just place the new part back in the same way you just removed it and ur almost done. Now, clean all leftover gasket material from the pan and from where it was sitting. The car changes gear perfectly. BTW, the dealer wanted $1047, i talked him down to $800. I was going to use the Level 10 rebuild shop, but the shipping and the down time was a problem for me. Well good luck. really, its was not as hard as i thought , I know you can do it..

Do you have to remove the transmission in order to replace the valve body?
Any response would be greatly appreciated.

Default valve body swop out- 04 maxima

No, it is not necessary to remove the transmission. You will see the small pan that covers the valve body, it sits at a angle. You will see what I mean when you vet under there.

Perry04-Question for you: Since you performed the full valve body, is it possible to change all Eight solenoids ( 5 On-OFF solenoids and 3 Linear Solenoids) without removing the transmission? I want to replace whatever I can at a cheap labor price.

Youtube videos worth watching (or search under “transmission solenoid repair and valve body rebuild”):
