How Often to Change 2017 Nissan Armada Oil

Need more info about 2017 Nissan Armada oil changes? Look no further than 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.

Nissan recommends changing your 2017 Armada’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Armada may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. 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.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Nissan Armada?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2017 Nissan Armada motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Nissan has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2017 Armada. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Armada’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Armada by considering your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2017 Nissan Armada Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Nissan Armada? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Nissan Armada engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Nissan Armada oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
