Re: sentra 2008 2.0 model
It is best to get a proper garage or oil change specialist to change the oil, as it will void the warranty on such a new vehicle if you do it yourself. Also if you just want to top the oil up, best to call the dealer for the oil specification, or it should be in the handbook that came with the vehicle.
Hope this helps,

During regular service of NP300 takes 4.3 liters of engine oil. Nissan NP300 really needs high quality motor oil. Lots of Nissan vehicles produced in 2009 had 2.5 motor under the hood. Having model code YD25DDTi this engine should be filled up with Synthetic 5w30 type of oil. Choosing normal Synthetic 5w30 oil for NP300 2.5 engine you ensure its long lasting work.
This is the same info for your 08 model. Please make sure to use 5w~30 full synthetic. Mobil 1 or Castrol.
An engine used oil for lubrication and colling. If there is no oil then there is no lubrication. No lubrication means lots of heat and friction. Is it a ticking or banging noise? I do believe it is an ohc engine so it couldnt be a lifter ticking. It is probably a rod knocking. It so then it will more than likely need an engine
we have seen few of these our selves. that only happens, when you dont do ol changes reguraly every 3500 miles with conventional oil or 7500 miles with full synthetic oil. if the want to put an engine into it, i would say doit as long as they do it under warantee, but something tells me that they may not, because you dont have any records as far as oil changes. that makes it tougher for them to replace it under factory warantee. your sentra has 5years or 60k miles warantee on engine and trans which ever comes first.
Well i advice you to flush the engine,then put a good type of engine oil,after having service it,take out the positive cable from the battery for one hour ,this will reset the E.C.U .After one hour put the cable,then start the engine see what it gives.Hope that help you and solve the problem
You should use the viscosity oil recommended in your owner's manual. Using a heavier weight oil can affect your fuel economy. If you overfilled the engine with oil, drain out a quart. Overfilling with oil will cause the oil to 'foam', and if this happens, you are not getting proper lubrication of components, which can result in damage to your engine.
yes you must be careful here, it is mostlikely your oil, although it could possibly be coolant too, with summertime approching you do not want to drive around without your fluids topped off. check each one of the fluids I mentioned and add if needed
