It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Nissan recommends changing your 2016 370Z’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 370Z in the above table. No matter the mileage, your 370Z may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Nissan 370Z. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2016 Nissan 370Z Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Nissan 370Z motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your 370Z’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
