Nissan recommends having your 2004 Nissan 350Z’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table.

2004 Nissan 350Z Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Nissan 350Z? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your 350Z’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Nissan 350Z 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan 350Z exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
