When to Change 1985 Nissan 720 Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Nissan 720’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 1985 720’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 720 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 car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Nissan recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Nissan 720. 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Nissan 720 Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1985 Nissan 720 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your 720's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car 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 preferences, and mileage.

1985 Nissan 720 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Nissan 720 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Nissan 720 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 oil on my own? 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan 720 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
