Nissan recommends changing your 1990 Axxess’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Axxess in the above table.

1990 Nissan Axxess Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Nissan Axxess engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Nissan Axxess engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Nissan Axxess oil at home? 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 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 Axxess exhaust smoke grayish 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, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
