2013 Nissan Rogue Advance 2.5L (QR25DE)

No DTCs actually drives really nice after junkyard transmission swap. They did not swap TCM with the same donor vehicle, and they already filled with fluid so I cannot get the valve body part number.

Will I be prompted for the valve body part number when reflashing the original TCM?

David, 2013 Rogue is not a CD style valve body. No need for valve body/solenoid ID. Rogue started in 2014 with CD and valve body “write”. For your 2013 MY. You can see if there is a TCM update on Nissan tech info. You will need your present TCM calibration which can be viewed via scan tool. Most 2013 Rogue models do not have a TCM update in my experience. You will need to do an erase and…

The interesting thing is that at least in my area, there's a supply issue in getting new or refurb units from Nissan. To warranty a used CVT through most of the used part companies, they require documentation that the CVT is “programmed”. Also they are selling units with 100k miles for $3,500, big yikes. The TSB NTB12-103f is the older number but still has valuable info because anything after…

Jake, Yeah, sometimes there are supply chain issues no doubt. I have gotten into too many “conversations” with suppliers that want to tell me how to do my job when they have no clue. So, I do not “program” used units anymore. There are some third party suppliers that tell the end user to install and drive. The unit will self learn in their opinion. The TSB you referenced is for CVT units…
