How Often to Change 2009 Nissan Frontier Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2009 Nissan Frontier? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Nissan recommends changing your 2009 Frontier’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Nissan-recommended oil change intervals, your Frontier may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Nissan recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Nissan Frontier. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2009 Nissan Frontier Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Nissan Frontier motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Nissan Frontier engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Nissan Frontier oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
