Nissan recommends changing your 1991 240SX’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 240SX in the above table. Your 240SX may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Nissan recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Nissan 240SX. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

1991 Nissan 240SX Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Nissan 240SX? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your 240SX’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Nissan oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan 240SX spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
