1987 Nissan D21 Oil Change

How Often to Get 1987 Nissan D21 Oil Changes

Need more info about 1987 Nissan D21 oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.”

Nissan recommends changing your 1987 D21’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Nissan-recommended oil change intervals, your D21 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Nissan recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Nissan D21. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1987 Nissan D21 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Nissan D21 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your D21’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Nissan D21 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. 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 D21 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
