When to Change 1993 Nissan Altima Engine Oil

Need more info about 1993 Nissan Altima oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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 1993 Altima’s oil should be changed according to Nissan’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Altima may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess 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, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Nissan Altima. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Nissan Altima Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1993 Nissan Altima motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Nissan has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1993 Nissan Altima vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Altima’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Altima by considering your driving style, and odometer.

1993 Nissan Altima Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Nissan Altima? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Nissan Altima engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • 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 Altima spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. 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 old cylinder walls.
