2018 Nissan GT-R Oil Change

When to Change 2018 Nissan GT-R Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2018 Nissan GT-R? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 2018 GT-R’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your GT-R in the above table. Outside of Nissan-recommended oil change intervals, your GT-R 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 see an excess amount of vehicle 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, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Nissan GT-R. 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.

2018 Nissan GT-R Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Nissan GT-R engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your GT-R’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Nissan GT-R oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 GT-R exhaust smoke grayish 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
