How Often to Get 1998 Nissan Quest Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1998 Nissan Quest? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1998 Quest’s oil should be changed according to Nissan’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Quest 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 notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Nissan recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Nissan Quest. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1998 Nissan Quest Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Nissan Quest? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Nissan Quest engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Nissan Quest 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 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 Quest spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
