2000 Nissan Altra EV Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Nissan Altra EV engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Nissan Altra EV engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Nissan Altra EV 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. 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 Altra EV exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
