2012 Nissan Juke Oil Change

How Often to Get 2012 Nissan Juke Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2012 Nissan Juke? 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 changing your 2012 Juke’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Juke may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Nissan Juke. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2012 Nissan Juke

  • What can low oil do to my Nissan Juke engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Juke’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Nissan oil on my own? 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan Juke exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
