When to Change 2006 Nissan Armada Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Nissan Armada’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 2006 Armada’s oil should be changed according to Nissan’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Armada may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Nissan Armada. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2006 Nissan Armada

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Nissan Armada? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Nissan Armada engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Nissan Armada oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
