When to Change 2009 Nissan Armada Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2009 Nissan Armada? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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 2009 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 engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of 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. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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 2009 Nissan Armada

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Nissan Armada? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Nissan Armada engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Nissan oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan Armada exhaust smoke grayish or blue? 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, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
