Fully synthetic is okay (but pretty expensive) as long as the viscosity is correct. (5w30 or something like that). The viscosity is located within your owners manual.

I have a 2002 Sentra Spec V and have been using Castrol Syntec Blend 5w-30 for 166,000 miles now. The engine still runs smoothly, not any problems out of the block and head. The brakes and suspension are another story...

10w-30 is what you need. full synthetic if you choose to use it would be fine.

Oil capacity of a 2.5 tdi nissan np300


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.

I took my 2008 sentra in to get an oil change and because me check engine light was on. I get a call the next day telling me that I have sludge in my engine, it is undrivable, and need a new engine. There...


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.

How often should I change the oil in my 2002 Nissan Frontier?


Some people change oil at 3000 miles,most people don't really care or keep track
I would say 3 times a year,if you drive less than 10,000 per year
4 times a year ,up to 20,000 miles per year driven
Use at least semi or full synthetic oil

Can I use Mobil 1 sunthetic oil for the engine of 2005 1.8SE Nissan Sentra?


Sure, the only issue is oil comsumption. If you put the oil in and start to consume too much oil, consider HIGH MILEAGE Blend. These oils are both synthetic and regular oil. Casteroil and others make this oil.

I have 103,500 miles on my 2002 nissan sentra when should I change the timing chain


The timing chain doesn't really have a maintenance period. They don't have a habit of breaking or stretching. Timing belts on some vehicles do have a recomended replacement period. Locate your local NTB, Firestone, or Sears for the maintenance schedule.

Hi, I have Nissan sentra 2002 gxe. After how many miles should i give the car in service? Which kind of service should I ask for? Thanks


Every 10,000 miles partial service; change engine oil and filter, air and fuel filter's, spark plug's and check brakes fluid pipes and pad's. Every 50,000 full service. partial service plus change cambelt, check gear diff and power steering oils. Owners manual or any mechanic will let you know oil grades etc.

Replace timng belt


well maybe there was some mis-communication there , nissan stopped using timing belts in sentra's and actually most all models in 2000 , maybe they were telling you that your serpentine belt needed changed ? but to answer your question , you do not have a timing belt in your 2002 nissan sentra . its a chain . thanks
