Nissan recommends having your 1990 Nissan Pulsar NX’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Pulsar NX in the above table. Your Pulsar NX may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Nissan Pulsar NX. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

During your oil change service, a technician will change your Pulsar NX's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Pulsar NX by considering your driving style, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1990 Nissan Pulsar NX

  • Should I check my Nissan Pulsar NX motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Pulsar NX’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Nissan oil on my own? 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 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 Pulsar NX spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
