How Often to Change 2009 Nissan 370Z Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2009 Nissan 370Z? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Your 2009 370Z’s oil should be changed according to Nissan’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Nissan-recommended oil change intervals, your 370Z may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Nissan recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Nissan 370Z. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Nissan 370Z?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2009 Nissan 370Z motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Nissan has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2009 370Z. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your 370Z's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2009 Nissan 370Z Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Nissan 370Z motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Nissan 370Z engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Nissan 370Z 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan 370Z exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. 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, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
