Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1986 Nissan 720? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too.

Nissan recommends changing your 1986 720’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Nissan-recommended oil change intervals, your 720 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 see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Nissan recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Nissan 720. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1986 Nissan 720 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Nissan 720? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Nissan 720 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Nissan 720 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
