How Often to Change 2016 Nissan NV1500 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Nissan NV1500’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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.”

Your 2016 NV1500’s oil should be changed according to Nissan’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your NV1500 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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 areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Nissan NV1500. 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.

2016 Nissan NV1500 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Nissan NV1500? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Nissan NV1500 engine failure. 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 your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 NV1500 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
