How Often Do You Need to Get an Oil Change?

Importance of Nissan Oil Changes

Unless you drive an all-electric Nissan Leaf or Ariya, your Nissan vehicle will need routine oil changes and other recommended maintenance. Most models need oil changes every 5,000 miles or twice per year. Often, the recommended maintenance depends on the model, year, mileage, and oil. If you have any questions about the recommended Nissan maintenance for your vehicle, the service advisors at Rountree Moore Nissan near Five Points can help you.

Factors Affecting Your Oil Change Schedule

Your Nissan car, truck, or SUV comes with an owner’s manual that includes recommended maintenance. The service team at your local Nissan dealership near Watertown can also help you understand your vehicle’s maintenance schedule. Your driving habits, local weather conditions, and mileage also affect your service scheduling needs.

For example, if you don’t drive 5,000 to 10,000 miles annually, you should still have your oil changed at least once annually, because of the wear and tear of driving in Florida heat and humidity. If you drive in stop-and-go traffic on roads like US-41, your vehicle’s engine might need more oil changes and oil filter changes. You might also find that you need more frequent brake fluid checks and replacements. Fortunately, the service team at Rountree Moore Nissan includes a multi-point inspection with every oil change, so you will learn if you need Nissan tire care, a tire rotation, or a replacement cabin air filter.

Benefits of Routine Oil Changes

Our service advisor will recommend full synthetic motor oil, a synthetic blend, or conventional oil based on your vehicle, mileage, and driving style. With routine oil changes, you protect your vehicle’s engine from excessive wear and tear. You’ll save time and money on repairs from breakdowns and other engine issues.

Oil and filter changes protect your engine from overheating, and the filters protect your engine from damage from debris. When your vehicle is operating, the engine components heat up, and the oil prevents components from fusing. Routine oil changes keep your engine clean so it can run at its peak.
