Your 1995 Maxima’s oil should be changed according to Nissan’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Maxima may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Nissan recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

1995 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 components can grind against each other, overheat, 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.
  • Can I change my Nissan Maxima 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
