Not sure how or where to get your Nissan 350Z’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 changing your 2008 350Z’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 350Z may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Nissan 350Z. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2008 Nissan 350Z Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Nissan 350Z? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Nissan 350Z engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Nissan 350Z oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan 350Z 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 the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
