Nissan recommends having your 1992 Nissan D21’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your D21 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess 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 terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Nissan D21. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1992 Nissan D21

  • What can low oil do to my Nissan D21 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, 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.
  • Can I change my Nissan oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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 D21 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
