Your 1992 240SX’s oil should be changed according to Nissan’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 240SX in the above table. Outside of Nissan-recommended oil change intervals, your 240SX may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Nissan if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Nissan 240SX. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1992 Nissan 240SX Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Nissan 240SX? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your 240SX’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Nissan 240SX oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
