Nissan recommends having your 1991 Nissan D21’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your D21 in the above table. Your D21 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 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 D21. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1991 Nissan D21 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Nissan D21 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Nissan D21 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Nissan D21 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
