2018 Nissan Murano Oil Change

When to Change 2018 Nissan Murano Engine Oil

Need more info about 2018 Nissan Murano oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2018 Murano’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 Murano 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 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Nissan Murano. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Nissan Murano?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2018 Nissan Murano motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Nissan has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2018 Nissan Murano vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Murano’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, weather and road conditions,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 Nissan Murano

  • What can low oil do to my Nissan Murano engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Nissan Murano engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan Murano exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
