List of Jatco transmissions

Nissan and its spinoff, Jatco, have produced a large number of automatic transmissions for many auto makers.

The first Nissan/Jatco transmission, the Jatco 3N71 transmission, used a simple naming scheme: the "3" meant "3-speed", and the remainder was the series number. Beginning in 1982, it gained a locking torque converter (L3N71b) for greater efficiency. (See L3N71 link below). It gained an overdrive section in 1983 (L4N71b), culminating with preliminary electronic sensors and control functions being added in 1985 (E4N71b), and preseding with the initial "R" for "rear wheel drive" with the RL4R01A/RE4R01A. This same system was used with the RL3F01A front wheel drive transaxle and its descendants through the RE4F04A.

Many OEM users assign new numbers, and Jatco has switched to a new scheme starting with "J" for Jatco, "F" or "R" for front- or rear-wheel drive. The next digit is the number of gears, while the model series is now two digits sequentially. The model series names do not map directly — although the RE4R03A became the JR403E, the unrelated RE4F04A became the JF403E.
