How Often to Get 2001 Nissan Quest Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2001 Nissan Quest? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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 2001 Quest’s oil should be changed according to Nissan’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Quest in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Quest may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, 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, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

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

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2001 Nissan Quest motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Nissan has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2001 Nissan Quest vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Quest's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Quest by taking into account your driving preferences, weather and road conditions,

Types of Motor Oil for Nissans

Wondering if we carry the right motor oil for your Nissan? Your Quest engine deserves the very best, which is why we only stock the best! Talk with a teammate and consult your owner's manual before picking a motor oil. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, you can choose from the following oils: Quaker State® Advanced Durability™ conventional oil, Pennzoil® High Mileage Vehicle® motor oil, Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus™ Technology, and Shell Rotella® heavy-duty engine oil. There's a reason we carry these motor oil brands. They are champions. For instance, when tested on taxi fleets from coast to coast, Quaker State was shown to provide double the protection when compared to the industry standard. [1] Pennzoil is another option. Unlike traditional synthetic motor oils, the Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic line of motor oils with PurePlus® Technology is formulated from pure natural gas, which helps lead to better performance. For heavy-duty engines, there's Shell Rotella. It's specifically designed for diesel and gasoline engines that need to overcome the strenuous working conditions, and is fortified to deliver heightened performance in extreme temperatures, increased wear protection, and better oxidation resistance.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2001 Nissan Quest

  • Should I check my Nissan Quest motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Nissan Quest engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Nissan oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan Quest spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. 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 damaged cylinder walls.
