Nissan 300ZX Automatic and Manual Transmissions for Sale

The Nissan 300ZX was introduced to American turf in 1984, even though it was introduced to JapanĀ  one year earlier in 1983. I remember it well, a lot of commotion was made about the powerful new Nissan 300Zx. It was the new Japanese Z car savior, designed to compete with American pony cars. It never had a chance, even though the car became very popular.

Through two generations, the X31 was made from 1983 to 1989 , and the Z32 was made from 1989 to 1996 in America. As a transmission mechanic for most of my life, the transmission Nissan used at the time, were really not up to the task if you had a heavy foot. The problem was solveable upon rebuild, with an update kit and better clutch plates and bands.

Generation 1 Nissan 300ZX [Z31] came with these transmissions:
1. FS5W71C 5 speed manual transmission
2. FS5R30A 5 speed manual transmission
3. FS5R90A manual transmission
4. E4N71B automatic overdrive transmission with lock up torque converter.

Generation 2 Nissan 300ZX [Z32] came with these transmissions:
1. RS5R30A 5 speed manual transmission
2. RE4RO1A 4 speed automatic overdrive transmission
3. RE4RO3A electronic automatic overdrive transmission with electronic lock up torque converter.

The weak-spot of this car, in my opinion, was the transmission. The early models had more power than the [automatic] transmission and clutch [in the case of a manual trans.] could handle, regardless of whether it was an automatic transmission or manual transmission. Here are two good tips, install an external auxiliary transmission cooler with your new transmission and use fully synthetic automatic transmission fluid too.
