Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Nissan recommends changing your 2013 Quest’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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 vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Nissan recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2013 Nissan Quest

  • What can low oil do to my Nissan Quest engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, 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.
  • How hard is it to change Nissan Quest oil at home? 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
