Does Nissan warranty cover oil changes?
Unfortunately, routine services like oil changes, alignments, and filter replacements are not covered by most warranties since these are part of regular vehicle maintenance.

Nissan provides a standard limited warranty of 3 years or 36,000 miles for almost every new model. This covers repairs or replacements caused by material defects or workmanship issues during the first three years of ownership or the vehicle’s first 36,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Does changing your own oil void warranty Nissan?
No, doing your own oil changes won’t void your Nissan warranty. But keep in mind that the warranty will not cover any damages sustained as a result of DIY oil changes. This includes engine damage caused by using the wrong type of oil. If you are going to perform your oil changes, we recommend consulting your owner’s manual for the correct type of oil.

Additionally, the Nissan New Vehicle Limited Warranty does not cover repairs for damages determined to be a result of the use of non-OEM Nissan parts or accessories.

How much should I spend on an oil change?
Depending on your location and the type of oil your car requires, you can expect to pay between $35 and $75 for an oil change. For full synthetic oil, you may pay up to $125.

Is $100 too much for an oil change?
Since synthetic oil is more expensive, it is reasonable to expect to pay around $100 for a full synthetic oil change. For a blend or conventional oil, $100 is on the higher end of the price range.

How often should oil change?
Most vehicles need an oil change every 3,000-5,000 miles, although many new models can go up to 7,500 miles between oil changes. We recommend checking your owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s recommended interval for your vehicle.

Older engines release more debris and burn more oil, which requires more frequent oil changes. Newer engines run cleaner, allowing them to go longer between oil changes.

Is an oil change worth it?
Yes, oil changes are vital for your vehicle to function properly. Neglecting regular oil changes can cause major engine damage, leading to expensive repair bills.

Is it OK to change oil once a year?
Since oil change schedules are based largely on mileage, you may be able to get your oil changed just once or twice a year if you don’t drive very often.

Can you go 2 years without changing oil?
No. It isn’t recommended to leave oil in your vehicle for longer than a year, even if you have not met the mileage suggestions.

Will my check engine light come immediately if I need an oil change?
Your check engine light may turn on when your car needs an oil change, but this is typically because the oil is too dirty and/or there isn’t enough oil flowing through your engine. When oil gets dirty or too low, it can be catastrophic for your engine. For this reason, you shouldn’t rely on your check engine light to notify you that an oil change is needed.

How long does it take a check engine light to go off after an oil change?
How long your check engine light stays on after an oil change depends. It may turn off immediately after the issue has been corrected, your mechanic may need to reset it manually, or it may go off after a few days of normal driving. If the light doesn’t turn off, the problem may still be present.

Can you pass emissions with oil change light on?
While emissions tests and safety inspections aren’t concerned with oil changes, failing to change the oil regularly may cause engine issues that impact your ability to pass an inspection.

Can oil change affect smog test?
Dirty oil can greatly affect smog test results, because the fumes from the oil compartment emanate throughout the engine area and become a part of the engine’s combustion. Remember to change the oil before getting a smog check.

Can oil change affect acceleration?
Regular oil changes are one of the best ways to improve your engine’s performance and help your vehicle get its best gas mileage. When the oil is old, dirty, or low, the engine can’t function at its best, which can impact acceleration. Sticking to your recommended oil change schedule is a great way to maintain your engine and improve acceleration.

Will a car oil change stop oil leak?
No, simply changing the oil in your car will not fix a leak. You’ll still need to identify the cause and source of the leak and repair it. You’ll also need to top off or change the oil afterward to make sure your engine has the correct amount to run properly.

Can an oil change stop overheating?
If low or dirty oil is the cause of the engine overheating, yes, changing the oil will prevent the engine from overheating further.

Will oil change fix knocking?
Regular oil changes with the correct type of oil can help prevent engine knocking by providing lubrication to the engine components. With this in mind, sounds knocking under the hood of a car can point to various issues aside from an oil change. If your engine is knocking, we recommend taking it to your mechanic.

Will oil change fix low oil pressure?
Yes. Low oil pressure is typically caused by not having enough motor oil in the crankcase, so having an oil change will restore the oil to the correct levels. Older vehicles are prone to issues with oil level, so it’s important to keep an eye on your oil level if your car is an older model.

Can oil change fix misfire?
No, an oil change isn’t likely to fix a misfire. While misfires are serious, there are a lot of causes, many of which are relatively simple and low cost to fix.

Does oil go bad sitting in an engine?
Yes, contrary to popular belief, motor oil has an expiration date and can go bad just sitting in the engine. It becomes less viscous–and therefore less efficient at lubrication–over time, which can cause engine problems.

Will my car tell me when I need an oil change?
While some cars have a built-in warning system to notify you when you’re due for an oil change, many do not. Your check engine light may signify the need for an oil change, but this light can mean a variety of things, so we don’t recommend relying on it when it comes to oil changes.

Is it true, you can’t switch to regular car oil after synthetic?
No. This is a persistent–and incorrect–myth about switching oils. Going back to conventional oil after synthetic will not harm your engine and synthetic blends are simply a mix of conventional and synthetic. The most important thing is that you’re using the recommended oil type for your engine.

What color should oil be on a dipstick?
When it’s put in your car, the dipstick should be caramel, amber, or tan colored. If the dipstick is dark, that’s a surefire sign it’s time for an oil change.

What if my car’s oil is black or dark brown?
Dark brown or black oil almost always means that it’s dirty or has been exposed to too much heat. In other words: it’s time for an oil change. This is especially true if you can see debris or dirt in your oil. Having that continue to cycle through your engine can cause major damage and expensive repairs, so we recommend scheduling or performing an oil change as soon as possible.

What do I do if my car oil is cream (milky) color?
Oil that looks creamy or milk-like can indicate a moisture issue, such as a head gasket leak. This is an urgent issue that, if left untreated, can cause a blown head gasket and expensive repairs. White smoke coming from your exhaust is a sign that your car is losing coolant quicker than it should, which also requires urgent attention.

What if my car’s oil is a cream (milky) color with a frothy texture?
If your car’s oil is white or milky and frothy, it almost always signifies a moisture issue. If signs of a head gasket leak aren’t present, such as white exhaust and losing coolant, it’s likely that your oil has water in it. We recommend scheduling a service appointment as soon as you can.

Is synthetic oil better?
While synthetic oil is better for your engine than conventional oil, conventional can still provide adequate lubrication. Where it falls short is engine performance and protection. Synthetic oil is superior at both because it uses higher-quality base oils.

Additional benefits of synthetic oil include:

  • Combating sludge and deposit buildup
  • Reducing engine wear and tear
  • Protecting against high temperatures
  • Controlling oil breakdown

What is the difference between a full synthetic oil and a synthetic blend?
There are no firm definitions in the industry, but synthetic oil blends are either a blend of high-quality and lower-quality conventional base oils or all high-quality (higher than conventional) base oils. Full synthetic oils start with the highest quality base oil.

In addition to the base, each oil needs to have the right additive blends. Full synthetics provide better protection, but not all synthetic oils are created equal.
