Your 2005 Murano’s oil should be changed according to Nissan’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Murano may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Nissan Murano. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2005 Nissan Murano Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Nissan Murano engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Murano’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Nissan oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 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, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
