How Often to Change 1995 Nissan 300ZX Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Nissan 300ZX’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Nissan recommends having your 1995 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 engine knocking, 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, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. 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.

1995 Nissan 300ZX Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Nissan 300ZX motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Nissan 300ZX engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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 buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
