How Often to Change 1992 Nissan Maxima Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1992 Nissan Maxima? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.”

Your 1992 Maxima’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 Maxima may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Nissan recommends if you 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 Maxima. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1992 Nissan Maxima Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Nissan Maxima? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Nissan Maxima engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Nissan Maxima oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 Maxima exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
