2017 Nissan Frontier Oil Change

How Often to Get 2017 Nissan Frontier Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Nissan Frontier’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 2017 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Nissan Frontier. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2017 Nissan Frontier?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2017 Nissan Frontier motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Nissan has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2017 Frontier. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your Frontier's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Frontier by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

2017 Nissan Frontier Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Nissan Frontier engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Nissan Frontier engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Nissan Frontier 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan Frontier spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
