10w 40 and about 4 1/2 quarts should do it. To help maintain the engine life due to high mileage, use the Nissan filters. There is a manufactured difference in filters.

97 nissan pick up 215,000 miles. Should I add Lucas oil treatment every so often? What blend of oil should I use?

No oil treatment is needed or recommended for use in an engine. The present day engine oils are formulated with various modifiers to provide proper lubrication, viscosity and cleaning to your engines internal parts. Using ANY additive could upset the formulations by adding chemicals which aren't compatible with the oil you are using. It's much better to just select a good oil and stick with it.

Also here is a site , which will tell you , depending on where you live , what oil is recommended for a Nissan Pickup .
I myself have been using Pennzoil in my truck for 7 years and I change the oil every 3750 miles . If you do not want to follow my advice , bring your Nissan truck to a dealer and ask them . The oil most dealers use is oil that comes in a 55 gallon barrel and is used in all vehicles .
Good luck

I changed the oil on my 2008 nissan sentra 2.0

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.

Type of oil for 94 v6 3.0 toyota 4x4

Your truck is going to take about 5.5 quarts.
Since your motor have some high miles on it, I would use non-synthetic 10w-30 oil that has the high mileage formula.
Synthetic will cause leaks on an old engine because the molecules are smaller and will go through gaskets easily.
High mileage formula will help recondition the gaskets.
