How Often to Get 1994 Nissan D21 Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1994 Nissan D21? Turn to 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 1994 D21’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Nissan-recommended oil change intervals, your D21 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

1994 Nissan D21 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Nissan D21? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Nissan D21 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it 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 figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
