When to Change 2018 Nissan 370Z Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Nissan 370Z’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. 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.”

Your 2018 370Z’s oil should be changed according to Nissan’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle 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, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Nissan 370Z. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

2018 Nissan 370Z Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Nissan 370Z engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, 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.
  • Can I change my Nissan 370Z oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan 370Z exhaust smoke grayish 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, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
