2021 Nissan GT-R Oil Change Service

How Often to Change 2021 Nissan GT-R Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2021 Nissan GT-R? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Your 2021 GT-R’s oil should be changed according to Nissan’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Nissan-recommended oil change intervals, your GT-R may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Nissan recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, 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.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Nissan GT-R?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2021 Nissan GT-R motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Nissan has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2021 GT-R. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your GT-R’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your GT-R by considering your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Types of Motor Oil for Nissans

Wondering if we carry the right motor oil for your Nissan? We carry the best because your GT-R deserves the best.

There's a reason we carry these motor oil brands. They are proven winners.

2021 Nissan GT-R Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Nissan GT-R motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Nissan GT-R engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Nissan GT-R oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
