Oil Changes for 2020 Nissan Frontier

When to Change 2020 Nissan Frontier Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Nissan Frontier’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Nissan recommends having your 2020 Nissan Frontier’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Frontier 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 engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Nissan if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Nissan Frontier?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Nissan Frontier. Nissan has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2020 Frontier. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs 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 perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Frontier by taking into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2020 Nissan Frontier Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Nissan Frontier engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform 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, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
