Over the course of its lifetime, your Nissan will need a number of services and tune-ups. Among these, few services are as important as an oil change. When you own a Nissan, it’s important to have fresh, clean oil running through its engine. Clean oil assures maximum performance, and it can also prevent major repairs down the road. Briggs Nissan is here to help. We’ve serviced the Manhattan and Junction City, KS, areas for many years—and our team of intelligent technicians are fully prepped to make sure your Nissan is running as smoothly as possible. Does your vehicle need an oil change? What type of oil change does it need? Let’s find out.
You probably already have a good handle on getting vehicle service when it’s needed. Because oil changes happen frequently, however, it’s useful to know exactly when your vehicle needs new oil. Nissans have changed quite a bit in the past couple of decades—but drivers need to adapt to new schedules to accommodate new vehicle tech.
A decade or so ago, drivers got an oil change every 3,000 miles or so. These days, though, a Nissan can go about 5,000 to 10,000 miles between every oil change. This said the best way to determine when your Nissan needs an oil change is to consult the vehicle owner’s manual.
When changing your Nissan’s oil, you have two choices to choose from: a conventional oil change or a full synthetic oil change. A conventional oil change is just that: an oil change with conventional oil. This oil meets industry emission standards, and it’s constantly redesigned to help your vehicle reach a high degree of efficiency. Synthetic oil, on the other hand, tend to withstand heat a little better. While it might cost more than a traditional oil, it’s been designed to last a little longer. Traditional oil is made from raw, natural crude oil—whereas synthetic oil is created in a lab.
