Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2003 Nissan Maxima? 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 having your 2003 Nissan Maxima’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Maxima 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, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.
Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2003 Nissan Maxima motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Nissan has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2003 Maxima. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Maxima’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Maxima by considering your driving style, and odometer.

 ILSAC GF-5 represents the latest performance standard set by the International Lubricant Standardization and Approval Committee (ILSAC), a joint effort of U.S. and Japanese automobile manufacturers. Most automobile manufacturers are expected to recommend oils that meet ILSAC GF-5. API SN is the most recent service category issued by API’s Lubricants Group. Oils meeting API SN and the new “Resource Conserving” designation meet all ILSAC GF-5 performance requirements.
