When to Change 1995 Nissan Pickup Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1995 Nissan Pickup? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 having your 1995 Nissan Pickup’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Pickup in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Pickup 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 see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Nissan if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Nissan Pickup. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Nissan Pickup?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1995 Nissan Pickup motor oil: either synthetic or conventional.

During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Pickup’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important 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, and mileage.

1995 Nissan Pickup Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Nissan Pickup engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Nissan Pickup engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Nissan Pickup 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan Pickup spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. 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, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
