2012 Nissan Quest Oil Change Service

When to Change 2012 Nissan Quest Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2012 Nissan Quest? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2012 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 engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Nissan if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Nissan Quest. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Nissan Quest Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2012 Nissan Quest motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Nissan has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2012 Quest. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Quest’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car 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 style, weather and road conditions,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2012 Nissan Quest

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Nissan Quest? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Nissan Quest engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan Quest exhaust smoke grayish or blue? 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, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
