Oil Change Q&A for Your 2023 Nissan Altima

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Nissan Altima? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Altima’s 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 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan Altima spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
