Happy New Year everyone,

 

Does anyone know what grade/spec of engine oil is preferred on the MY 19' Nismo? I have my major service due this month, and been quoted £550 for parts & labour at Nissan.. But as I work in a Factor, I'm thinking of supplying my own parts (OE quality obvs) but they won't tell the oil grade??

 

TIA

5w-30 fully synthetic oil as recommended directly from the owners manual (16 plate Nismo)

 

HOWEVER, I have switched to a slightly thicker oil, 5w-40 millers CFS as I wanted a slightly higher protection when warm. My Nismo just ticked over 35K on the clock. Do not cheap out on the oil, as mentioned above Opie oils are seriously good guys

Thanks guys,

 

I've found Opie to be very contradictive. They list several varying specs of 5w-30 which when you read the specifications say they're suitable for Ford, BMW, Chrysler etc.

 

I'm sticking with 5w30 from my work, we only sell good quality oils anyway to avoid issues with the garages we supply. Thanks for the advice though.

Just to clarify, the spec required for your car is API SN 5w-30. When you put your reg into our look up guide it looks for all 5w-30 oils that meet API SN as they are suitable. If they meet other manufactures specs as well it does not matter :thumbs:

 

Cheers,
