How Often to Change 2006 Nissan Maxima Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2006 Nissan Maxima? Look no further than 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.”

Your 2006 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. No matter the mileage, your Maxima may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of 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, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

2006 Nissan Maxima Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Nissan Maxima engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, 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 Maxima oil at home? 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan Maxima spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
