1993 Nissan 300ZX Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Nissan 300ZX motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your 300ZX’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Nissan 300ZX oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 300ZX spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
