Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1993 Nissan D21? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 1993 D21’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your D21 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

1993 Nissan D21 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Nissan D21 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Nissan D21 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Nissan oil on my own? 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
