When to Change 1993 Nissan NX Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Nissan NX’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 1993 NX’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 NX may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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 terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Nissan NX. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1993 Nissan NX Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Nissan NX motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your NX’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Nissan oil on my own? 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. 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 NX exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
