Oil Change Q&A for Your 1989 Nissan Pulsar NX

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Nissan Pulsar NX? 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 Pulsar NX engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Nissan Pulsar NX oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 Pulsar NX spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
