Why Does Your Vehicle Need an Oil Change?

An oil change is necessary for every vehicle at some point or another. The oil you use has a direct effect on how your engine runs. The constant cycling of oil through your engine keeps the oil smooth and clean, helping the engine operate at optimal capacity. As the oil circulates, it picks up debris and carries it away from the engine and into the oil filter.

Oil also makes it possible for the engine's moving parts to stay separate, avoiding friction that could damage your vehicle and make it run poorly. Additionally, motor oil helps keep the engine cool by circulating the heat from the combustion process. If your Nissan has low oil levels, it can cause the engine's temperature to increase, ultimately causing it to overheat. An overheated engine can cause significant mechanical damage that is often costly to fix, so getting regular oil changes can help you save money in the long term.

What Are the Benefits of Changing Your Vehicle's Oil?

  • Keeps the engine clean.
  • Improves fuel efficiency.
  • Keeps the engine cool.
  • Lubricates engine parts.

Keeps the engine clean

One of the main reasons people regularly replace their motor oil is because it helps keep the engine clean. The oil moves through the engine's different parts, picking up particles of dust along the way and moving it to the oil filter, where it can no longer affect the engine.

Improves fuel efficiency

Clean motor oil allows parts of a vehicle's engine to move with less resistance, which results in the engine requiring less fuel to operate. This can save money at the gas pump.

Keeps the engine cool

All the movement that takes place within your vehicle's engine creates friction, which can make the entire mechanism's temperature rise and cause damage. Oil helps dissipate this heat by distributing it throughout the engine, preventing any part of the engine from getting too hot and overheating.

Lubricates engine parts

When the parts in your vehicle's engine move, they actually have a thin barrier of oil separating them from each other. This can reduce friction and prevent knocking inside the engine by providing plenty of lubrication for the different parts to operate independently.

How Often Should You Get Your Oil Changed?

While it can vary based on the vehicle you drive, in general, you should try to get your oil changed approximately every 5,000 miles, or about every five or six months. You can also check your Nissan owner's manual and schedule your oil changes based on the intervals specifically recommended for your current vehicle.

Additionally, the amount you use your Nissan can contribute to how frequently you may need an oil change. For example, a person who drives an average of 20 miles per day may need an oil change significantly sooner than someone who drives that same distance in a week.

What Kind of Oil Does Your Nissan Need?

Some main factors that can affect which oil is best to use include the local climate where you live, how old your engine is, how often you use your vehicle, and, of course, what type of engine it has. For example, a diesel engine requires a high viscosity or synthetic oil.
