Oil Changes for 2016 Nissan NV2500

How Often to Change 2016 Nissan NV2500 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2016 Nissan NV2500? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2016 NV2500’s oil should be changed according to Nissan’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Nissan-recommended oil change intervals, your NV2500 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle 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 NV2500. 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 NV2500?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Nissan NV2500. Nissan has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2016 NV2500. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your NV2500’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your NV2500 by taking into account your driving preferences, and odometer.

2016 Nissan NV2500 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Nissan NV2500 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Nissan NV2500 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Nissan NV2500 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
