Welcome!

The Nismo trim level adds a significant amount of different styling components as well as different seats vs. the S/SV/SL models. They look very different... it does not look like you have one.

Welcome:

If the drain plug was leaking for long enough, it may not have fluid left in it. Sounds like someone did not tighten it when they removed it for whatever reason. Add fluid, if the transmission doesn't make any noise, you SHOULD be okay.

As for the engine; You have a sub-nismo trim. There is no ACTUAL difference between what you have and what a nismo or nismo RS comes with. It is all Nissan marketing hooey. You do, however, have an open diff compared to the nismo rs. But. Speaking from experience, the sub RS trans with a wavetrac diff is a much better transmission anyway. We swap out the RS transmissions for this reason. Other than that, the nismo and RS trims are basically an appearance package with some minor upgrades to brake and suspension.

Thanks for the reply everyone. Nissan Dealer said it was missing 100 ml from my transmission out of 2L. the gear shift like butter , all of them. the leak was minimal but enauf to be noticed when you look under the car. i realy think i fix the probleme with nissan in time and i suspect the garage who sold me to have change the transmission befor selling it to me. now i have new drain plug copper gasket and since 1 day no leak, also nissan dealer top off the transmission fluids . they add 100ml.

Where exactly is that? Your picture is too close up to really tell. But my guess is that is the high pressure fuel pump and you’re hearing something that is normal. The cam shaft on every rotation hits the pump to activate it. Purely mechanical. That’s why there’s typically a piece of foam covering it to lessen the noise.

They are cheap per say and one could say they should be replaced yearly.

People today stretching Oil change intervals to over 10,000 miles and pushing air filters off since they cant see it. It is not even $50 for a synthetic oil change with oil filter and air filter when you do it yourself.
