How Often to Get 1994 Nissan Maxima Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1994 Nissan Maxima? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 1994 Maxima’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Maxima may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of 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 go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Nissan Maxima. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Maxima by considering your driving habits, and odometer.

1994 Nissan Maxima Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Nissan Maxima motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Nissan Maxima engine failure. 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan Maxima spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
