old tech wrote:In the above posted pictures, the before pic is the 12-13 yr deep pan . The after pic is the 10-11 short pan . See the different magnet location. They each have their own filter. The short filter in the deep pan is not a good thing. It could lead to fluid starvation given a low level and just the right tilt. Unfortunately ,the earlier pan filter typically, is all the part stores have listed for all Kizashis. The longer reach 12-13 filter in the 10-11 pan is not possible. On the topic of fluid color. its possible for manufacturers to make it any color they wish. Castrol makes a very good cvt fluid thats red. I wont use it for the simple fact of I may be accused of putting the wrong fluid into someones transmission which led to a failure.



the previous owner had confirmed to me that he had an accident and damaged the Pan and changed it,
I had to buy the corresponding ones for both the pan and the filter in https://partsouq.com/ since they were the only ones that had the correct part numbers for the 12/13 models,thanks to the information given in the forums
and yours and the numbers parts of the TSB

Could someone post a picture of their fluid level on their dipstick with the car cold and not running? Someone with the stick with the drilled holes. Still getting bubbles in the fluid at operating temp. I want to see if it helps me figure if it's over or under filled (or possibly fine)

That is unproductive for anything other than making sure there is some fluid in the system. Ambient temperature, the amount of time since the vehicle was run, etc. will all alter this reading.

You need to follow the proper procedure and check the fluid with the car running, on level ground, and the CVT fluid in the specified temperature range. No other method will tell you if the fluid level is set correctly.
