How Often to Get 1998 Nissan Maxima Oil Changes

Need more info about 1998 Nissan Maxima oil changes? 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 1998 Maxima’s oil should be changed according to Nissan’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Maxima in the above table. 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, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Nissan if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Nissan Maxima. 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.

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

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1998 Nissan Maxima

  • Should I check my Nissan Maxima motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, 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 oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
