Nissan Maxima Owners Manual: Change intervals

The oil and oil filter change intervals for your engine are based on the use of the specified quality oils and filters. Using engine oil and filters that are not of the specified quality, or exceeding recommended oil and filter change intervals could reduce engine life. Damage to the engine caused by improper maintenance or use of incorrect oil and filter quality and/or viscosity is not covered by the NISSAN New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

Your engine was filled with a high-quality engine oil when it was built. You do not have to change the oil before the first recommended change interval. Oil and filter change intervals depend upon how you use your vehicle.

Operation under the following conditions may require more frequent oil and filter changes:

  • repeated short distance driving at cold outside temperatures
  • driving in dusty conditions
  • extensive idling
  • towing a trailer
  • stop and go commuting

For additional information, refer to the "Maintenance and schedules" section of this manual.
