I have actually a 2008 2.5SL, its coming up on 55,400 which will mark 5,000 miles due to the fact that the last time the oil was changed. I"ve owned the vehicle for 1 month.In the past, ns have generally purchased Maxlife (for vehicles over 75,000 miles) 10w30 native Autozone, yet I think 5w/30 is recommended for this altima"s right? references are appreciated and also not certain if I would certainly actually endure a difference in performance or smoothness based upon the oil used.

it"d it is in a an excellent investment to switch to full fabricated if you do lengthy commutes and also for a many stop and also go, however if girlfriend don"t perform a lot of stop and also go or have actually a short commute, stick to conventional. Since you"re in ~ the 55-60k mile mark, you may want to move to 5w-30 high mileage oil.

I have a 2008 2.5SL, its coming up ~ above 55,400 i beg your pardon will mark 5,000 miles because the critical time the oil was changed. I"ve owned the automobile for 1 month.In the past, ns have commonly purchased Maxlife (for vehicles over 75,000 miles) 10w30 indigenous Autozone, but I think 5w/30 is recommended for this altima"s right? recommendations are appreciated and not certain if I would actually experience a distinction in performance or smoothness based on the oil used.
I just signed online for virtually the very same question and found your post; I have used 5W30 in mine 2008 since brand-new but I"m currently in a far area the Honduras and only thing I might buy is Castrol 10W30 in this little town. Now I present my ignorance i guess, but; what would certainly be the diffrence in 10W and 5W ns really have actually no idea; oil had to be readjusted so I had to put it in now I was at 4000 mi top top the last readjust 4 months ago; it is pushing it i think...
I very first used 10W30 Castrol GTX with Fram filter for about the very first 5 or 6 oil transforms at 6K miles i then switch to 10W30 Castrol Edge v K&N filters and now adjust at 12K.
5w is thinner oil then 10w during cold(below freezing) temperatures, for this reason as long as you don"t live in listed below freezing climate you can use 10w30 there is no problems.first number is the winter viscosity, 2nd number normal temperature viscosity. So 5w will flow through viscosity filter wherein 10w won"t since it won"t be thin enough.
5w is diluent oil climate 10w throughout cold(below freezing) temperatures, so as lengthy as friend don"t live in below freezing climate you can use 10w30 without problems.first number is the winter viscosity, 2nd number normal temperature viscosity. For this reason 5w will circulation through viscosity filter whereby 10w won"t since it won"t be thin enough.
Thnx Xeene..good xplanation no I"m in the tropics so guess I"m great to go till I deserve to buy 5W again..:shift:
I knew 5w to be thinner, however had no clue friend weren"t an alleged to usage 10w in below freezing climates. I"ve supplied 10w30 Maxlife high milieage oil in the previous for my other cars and also things ran ok i guess.Is over there an actual power / quality difference betweenValvoline vs imperial Purple vs Castrol vs Penzoil vs cell phone 1?I know someone mentioned if i am at 55,000 to go ahead and also go because that the high usage version.
just gained done an altering the oil. Supplied a frame extra security oil filter + Valvoline Max LIfe 5W30 High Mileage.The oil was last readjusted an a Nissan Dealership about 5k miles ago..and man, was it dark and dirty. Was thick too.

I use full man-made 5w-30 Castrol, Mobil1 or Valvoline (Advance Auto Parts constantly has deals because that 5qt + filter for about $30) and also 6000 miles/6month changes. As soon as engine is the end of warranty I might go with prolonged life oils and also do one oil evaluation to see exactly how it"s holding up.
I simply recently switched come Amsoil 0w30 Signature series from the Amsoil XL 5W30, and I have the right to tell a far-ranging difference in between the two so far. I have actually only pushed a few hundred mile so far, yet I can currently tell a distinction in the noise at idle, specifically when cold. Ns can also tell a distinction in the engine sound in ~ highway speeds. It just runs smoother every around. Ns am planning on running it 10,000 miles and also just law a filter change, and also then I want to operation it for 10k an ext miles. I likewise plan on sending in a sample at the time of a filter change to see how things are going.
I have a 2008 2.5SL, its comes up top top 55,400 i m sorry will note 5,000 miles due to the fact that the last time the oil was changed.

In around a main time ill it is in in the same position you are... I"ve constantly used Pennzoil in the past so i"ll be sticking with them again. However after analysis up plenty of sites and watching a the majority of youtube I"ll it is in going full synthetic 5w30 this time. I want to make certain this vehicle runs nicely for numerous years come come. Could use a k & n oil filter... Anyone suggestions for a goodoil filter guys??

The Amsoil, K&N, and also Mobile filters are the ideal ones that I know of. They room all make from a synthetic filter media. I believe the Wix/Napa yellow is the best record filter. Purolator additionally makes a an excellent one on your premium filter.
