2012 Nissan NV3500 Oil Change Service

How Often to Get 2012 Nissan NV3500 Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2012 Nissan NV3500? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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.”

Your 2012 NV3500’s oil should be changed according to Nissan’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your NV3500 in the above table. Outside of Nissan-recommended oil change intervals, your NV3500 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Nissan if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Nissan NV3500. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2012 Nissan NV3500?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Nissan NV3500. Nissan has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2012 Nissan NV3500 vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your NV3500's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and mileage.

2012 Nissan NV3500 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Nissan NV3500? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your NV3500’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Nissan NV3500 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan exhaust smoke gray 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
