1993 Nissan Pathfinder Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Nissan Pathfinder motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Nissan Pathfinder engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Nissan Pathfinder oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan Pathfinder spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
