it"d be a great investment to move to full synthetic if friend do long commutes and also for a many stop and also go, however if friend don"t do a the majority of stop and go or have a short commute, stick to conventional. Because you"re in ~ the 55-60k mile mark, you may want to switch to 5w-30 high purpose of use oil.

I have actually a 2008 2.5SL, its coming up on 55,400 i beg your pardon will note 5,000 miles since the critical time the oil was changed. I"ve own the vehicle for 1 month.In the past, ns have typically purchased Maxlife (for vehicles over 75,000 miles) 10w30 indigenous Autozone, but I think 5w/30 is recommended for this altima"s right? references are appreciated and not sure if I would certainly actually experience a difference in performance or smoothness based on the oil used.
I just signed virtual for nearly the exact same question and found your post; I have used 5W30 in my 2008 since new but I"m currently in a remote area that Honduras and only thing I can buy is Castrol 10W30 in this little town. Now I present my ignorance i guess, but; what would be the diffrence in 10W and also 5W ns really have actually no idea; oil had actually to be readjusted so I had actually to put it in today I was at 4000 mi ~ above the last adjust 4 month ago; thats pushing it i think...
I first used 10W30 Castrol GTX through Fram filters for about the first 5 or 6 oil alters at 6K miles ns then switch to 10W30 Castrol Edge with K&N filters and also now change at 12K.
5w is thinner oil climate 10w during cold(below freezing) temperatures, so as lengthy as girlfriend don"t live in listed below freezing climate you can use 10w30 without problems.first number is the winter viscosity, second number common temperature viscosity. Therefore 5w will flow through viscosity filter wherein 10w won"t because it won"t be slim enough.
5w is diluent oil then 10w throughout cold(below freezing) temperatures, so as long as girlfriend don"t live in listed below freezing climate you deserve to use 10w30 there is no problems.first number is the winter viscosity, second number typical temperature viscosity. For this reason 5w will flow through viscosity filter where 10w won"t because it won"t be slim enough.
Thnx Xeene..good xplanation no I"m in the tropics so guess I"m great to go until I deserve to buy 5W again..:shift:
I knew 5w was thinner, but had no clue friend weren"t an alleged to usage 10w in listed below freezing climates. I"ve supplied 10w30 Maxlife high milieage oil in the previous for my various other cars and things ran ok ns guess.Is there an actual power / quality difference betweenValvoline vs imperial Purple vs Castrol vs Penzoil vs mobile 1?I recognize someone stated if ns am at 55,000 to go ahead and also go for the high purpose of use version.
just got done changing the oil. Offered a fram extra safety oil filter + Valvoline Max LIfe 5W30 High Mileage.The oil to be last adjusted an a Nissan Dealership about 5k miles ago..and man, was it dark and also dirty. Was thick too.
Me too. You adjust your own, obviously, right? What sort of jack room you using? sent out from mine Autoguide iphone phone app
I usage full artificial 5w-30 Castrol, Mobil1 or Valvoline (Advance Auto Parts constantly has deals for 5qt + filter for around $30) and also 6000 miles/6month changes. As soon as engine is the end of vouch I might go with prolonged life oils and do one oil evaluation to see exactly how it"s hold up.
I just recently switched come Amsoil 0w30 Signature series from the Amsoil XL 5W30, and also I can tell a significant difference in between the two so far. I have only propelled a few hundred miles so far, but I can already tell a distinction in the noise in ~ idle, particularly when cold. Ns can likewise tell a distinction in the engine sound in ~ highway speeds. It simply runs smoother every around. Ns am planning on to run it 10,000 miles and just doing a filter change, and then I want to operation it because that 10k much more miles. I additionally plan on sending out in a sample at the moment of a filter adjust to see just how things are going.
I have a 2008 2.5SL, its comes up ~ above 55,400 i m sorry 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, i have commonly purchased Maxlife (for vehicles over 75,000 miles) 10w30 indigenous Autozone, yet I think 5w/30 is recommended because that this altima"s right? recommendations are appreciated and also not sure if I would actually endure a difference in power or smoothness based upon the oil used.
In about a main time ill be in the same place you are... I"ve always used Pennzoil in the past so i"ll it is in sticking v them again. Yet after analysis up numerous sites and also watching a most youtube I"ll be going full man-made 5w30 this time. I desire to make certain this automobile runs unique for plenty of years to come. Might use a k & n oil filter... Anyone suggestions for a goodoil filter guys??

The Amsoil, K&N, and also Mobile filters are the finest ones the I understand of. They room all make from a fabricated filter media. I think the Wix/Napa yellow is the best paper filter. Purolator likewise makes a great one on your premium filter.
