How Often to Change 1995 Nissan Pathfinder Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Nissan Pathfinder’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at 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.

Nissan recommends changing your 1995 Pathfinder’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Pathfinder may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle 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 long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

1995 Nissan Pathfinder Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Nissan Pathfinder? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. 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 should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Nissan Pathfinder oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, 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, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
