2016 Nissan Quest Oil Change Service

When to Change 2016 Nissan Quest Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2016 Nissan Quest? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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.”

Nissan recommends changing your 2016 Quest’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Quest may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Nissan recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Nissan Quest. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

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 2016 Nissan Quest motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Nissan has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2016 Quest. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Quest’s oil, replace and recycle your used 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, and odometer.

2016 Nissan Quest Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Nissan Quest? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Quest’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my 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. 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? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
