Question about Nissan Cars & Trucks
If the engine is still in good condition the recommended oil remains the best choice.
Choose your favourite brand and check against your vehicle in the online application catalogue - there is usually two choices for each model, a budget oil and a premium type, though the budget oil is usually not much of a saving.

most likely it is the transfer case leaking. known problem on the AWD models. they leak right down on the exhaust and causes the burning smell. have it checked out again.

well the temperature control gage is connected to the engine block and consists of 1 wire for the reading of the motor heat either the sensor is going bad or you need to check your coolant levels in the radiator make sure the engine is cool before opening the thermostat cap to the radiator so not to get burnt ...also make sure the wire itself is not grounding out on the engine block to give the gage to give such a readout look to the engine and usually on the drivers side lower the plug wires you should see a plug with a wire coming from it ensure the wire is not rubbing on anything .

Depending on the weather condtions where you live will determine the type of oil you should use. If you are in cold weather most manufactures for newer cars 2003 and up recommend 5-30 weight detergent oil. if it is hot you may want to go to 10-40 detergent. If you have the engine broken in say 30,000 miles I recommend my customers use 5-30 synthetic oil, it has better lubricating and heat removal qualities that regular motor oils don't have. also oil filters are important too. Iprefer fram oil filters, the heavy guard filters. they are more expensive but filter much finer particles. and last longer. So the better the oil and the better the filter the longer your engine will last. Don't use parfin based oil as it will damage your engine.
