Nissan recommends changing your 2019 NV1500’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Nissan-recommended oil change intervals, your NV1500 may need an oil change 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 may also need an oil change more frequently than Nissan recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Nissan NV1500. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2019 Nissan NV1500 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Nissan NV1500? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your NV1500’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? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle 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, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
