2018 Nissan Frontier Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Nissan Frontier engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, 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.
  • Can I change my 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
