Oil Changes for 2020 Nissan Murano

How Often to Change 2020 Nissan Murano Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2020 Nissan Murano? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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.”

Nissan recommends changing your 2020 Murano’s oil at regular 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 excess 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, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Nissan Murano. 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.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2020 Nissan Murano?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Nissan Murano. Nissan has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2020 Murano. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Murano’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Murano by taking into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2020 Nissan Murano Oil Change Q&A

  • 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 parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Nissan Murano 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? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
