1984 Nissan 300ZX Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Nissan 300ZX motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your 300ZX’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Nissan 300ZX 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan 300ZX spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 damaged cylinder walls.
