Not sure how or where to get your Nissan Pathfinder’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at 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.”
Nissan recommends changing your 1989 Pathfinder’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Pathfinder in the above table. Outside of Nissan-recommended oil change intervals, your Pathfinder may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of 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, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Nissan Pathfinder. 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.
Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1989 Nissan Pathfinder motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Nissan has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1989 Nissan Pathfinder vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Pathfinder’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, weather and road conditions,
