There seems to be too much conflicting information about the amount of gear oil to use.

The FSM states: This is for manual transmission only.

Gear Oil RS5F70A and RS5F70V:
US Measure: 6-3/8 qt
Import Measure: 5-1/4 qt
Liter: 3.0

Someone tell me how 6-3/8 qt = 3.0 liter????

It also says to use API GL-4, Viscosity SAE 80W-90

Haynes Manual states:

SR20DE engine manual transmission fill to within 1-1/2 inches of speedometer drive pinion opening (approximately 8-1/4 pints capacity).

The Math conversion:
Result of your conversion:

3.0 liters is equal to 3.17 quarts (US, liquid)
6-3/8 qt = 6.375 quarts (US, liquid) is equal to 6.03 liters
8-1/4 pints = 8.25 pints (US, liquid) is equal to 3.90 liters

One more thing, on my B14 i used a 3/8 and 1/5 inch wrenches to unscrew drain and fill plugs. They don't fit my B15 plugs. How do I unscrew the B15 plugs?
3.0 Liters is the right number, which is 6 3/8 pints. You're right, the table is all messed up.

I don't know about anyone else's B15s, but the 3/8 and 1/2 ratchets do not fit the oil plugs. The oil plugs are 6 sided, the ratchets are 4 sided. I used a 10mm bit(oil fill plug) and a 14mm bit (empty out oil plug). On a B14 those ratchets will work because the plugs are 4 sided.

Mine are the same. Some people have had 10 mm drain plugs as well.

You can get an 80W-90 from Motul. This fluid has come highly recommended from some of the oldest names in the SR20 community.

Just bought 3L of OEM Nissan HQ Multi SAE 75W-85 from the dealership. It was just over $17.00 each CDN.

I had done research online like a lot of people on here have already done, and there was too much conflicting information. I decided to consult the local dealer, and they told me that I want the fluid I ended up buying because it's a spec-v/6spd. The 5 spd and CVT sentras use a different fluid.

I will attempt to change my fluid in the next 48 hours and see what happens.
