Oil Changes for 2020 Nissan Pathfinder

When to Change 2020 Nissan Pathfinder Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Nissan Pathfinder’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Nissan recommends having your 2020 Nissan Pathfinder’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Pathfinder may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle 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, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Nissan Pathfinder. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Nissan Pathfinder Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2020 Nissan Pathfinder motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Nissan has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2020 Nissan Pathfinder vehicles.

In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Pathfinder’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, weather and road conditions,

2020 Nissan Pathfinder Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Nissan Pathfinder motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Pathfinder’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • 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. 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
