I have actually a 2008 2.5SL, its coming up top top 55,400 i m sorry will note 5,000 miles since the last time the oil was changed. I"ve owned the vehicle for 1 month.In the past, i have typically purchased Maxlife (for vehicles end 75,000 miles) 10w30 from Autozone, but I think 5w/30 is recommended for this altima"s right? referrals are appreciated and also not sure if I would actually experience a difference in performance or smoothness based upon the oil used.

it"d be a an excellent investment to switch to full synthetic if you do long commutes and for a the majority of stop and go, however if girlfriend don"t do a the majority 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 switch to 5w-30 high mileage oil.

it"d be a an excellent investment to switch to full artificial if you do lengthy commutes and for a most stop and go, yet if friend don"t perform a many stop and go or have a short commute, stick come conventional. Because you"re at the 55-60k mile mark, you might want to move to 5w-30 high mileage oil.
I drive 50-60 miles round expedition each day...probably 70% highway, 30% city...but the city is a ache in the target sometimes.

I have actually a 2008 2.5SL, its comes up ~ above 55,400 i beg your pardon will mark 5,000 miles due to the fact that the critical time the oil to be changed. I"ve owned the automobile for 1 month.In the past, i 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? recommendations are appreciated and not sure if I would actually endure a difference in power or smoothness based on the oil used.
I simply signed virtual for nearly the same question and found your post; I have actually used 5W30 in my 2008 since brand-new but I"m currently in a remote area of Honduras and also only point I can buy is Castrol 10W30 in this small town. Now I display my ignorance ns guess, but; what would certainly be the diffrence in 10W and also 5W i really have no idea; oil had to be readjusted so I had actually to put it in today I was at 4000 mi on the last change 4 month ago; thats pushing it i think...
I first used 10W30 Castrol GTX with Fram filters for around the an initial 5 or 6 oil changes at 6K miles i then move to 10W30 Castrol Edge through K&N filters and now change at 12K.
5w is diluent oil then 10w throughout cold(below freezing) temperatures, for this reason as lengthy as you don"t live in listed below freezing climate you have the right to use 10w30 without problems.first number is the winter viscosity, second number common temperature viscosity. So 5w will circulation through viscosity filter where 10w won"t due to the fact that it won"t be slim enough.
5w is thinner oil then 10w throughout cold(below freezing) temperatures, so as long as girlfriend don"t live in listed below freezing climate you can use 10w30 without problems.first number is the winter viscosity, 2nd number regular temperature viscosity. For this reason 5w will flow through viscosity filter whereby 10w won"t due to the fact that it won"t be thin enough.
Thnx Xeene..good xplanation !! I"m in the tropics for this reason guess I"m an excellent to go until I can buy 5W again..:shift:
I knew 5w was thinner, yet had no clue girlfriend weren"t an alleged to usage 10w in listed below freezing climates. I"ve offered 10w30 Maxlife high milieage oil in the past for my other cars and also things ran ok i guess.Is over there an actual performance / quality distinction betweenValvoline vs imperial Purple vs Castrol vs Penzoil vs mobile 1?I understand someone pointed out if ns am in ~ 55,000 to walk ahead and also go because that the high purpose of use version.
just obtained done changing the oil. Provided a fram extra safety oil filter + Valvoline Max LIfe 5W30 High Mileage.The oil to be last changed an a Nissan Dealership about 5k miles ago..and man, was it dark and also dirty. Was thick too.

I usage full man-made 5w-30 Castrol, Mobil1 or Valvoline (Advance Auto Parts constantly has deals for 5qt + filter for about $30) and 6000 miles/6month changes. When engine is out of guarantee I might go with prolonged life oils and do one oil evaluation to see just how it"s holding up.
I just recently switched to Amsoil 0w30 Signature collection from the Amsoil XL 5W30, and also I deserve to tell a far-ranging difference between the two so far. I have only propelled a few hundred miles so far, however I can currently tell a distinction in the noise in ~ idle, specifically when cold. Ns can likewise tell a difference in the engine sound in ~ highway speeds. It just runs smoother every around. I am to plan on to run it 10,000 miles and also just doing a filter change, and then I desire to run it for 10k an ext miles. I additionally plan on sending out in a sample at the time of a filter change to see just how things room going.

In about a mainly time ill it is in in the same place you are... I"ve constantly used Pennzoil in the previous so i"ll it is in sticking with them again. However after analysis up numerous sites and also watching a many youtube I"ll it is in going full man-made 5w30 this time. I desire to make sure this auto runs nicely for plenty of years to come. Might use a k&n oil filter... Anyone proposal for a goodoil filter guys??

The Amsoil, K&N, and Mobile filters are the ideal ones the I recognize of. They space all make from a synthetic filter media. I believe the Wix/Napa gold is the best document filter. Purolator likewise makes a an excellent one on your premium filter.
