Not sure how or where to get your Nissan 300ZX’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Nissan recommends having your 1990 Nissan 300ZX’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your 300ZX may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle 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 drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Nissan 300ZX. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1990 Nissan 300ZX Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Nissan 300ZX engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Nissan 300ZX 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. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan 300ZX 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
