Nissan Micra Engine Oil Finder

The Micra has been rolling off the assembly line at Nissan for over three decades, but things have changed significantly since 2017. The first generation Micra was very functional, the second and third generations they were seen as a cute "bubble" cars and pretty boring in the fourth. However you certainly cannot accuse the fifth edition of the Micra of being boring.

The V-shaped radiator grille, the low roof and the side line that rises to the distinctive rear headlights turn a well-behaved small car into a chic one. In addition, the new Micra is 17 centimeters longer than the previous model, which is just as noticeable in the trunk (300 litres volume) as in the interior. The fifth generation of Micra presents itself more modern, more individual and with a contemporary package of infotainment and assistance systems.

Above all, a small car must be compact and manoeuvrable - both of which the Micra is. A lot of people say that the older versions of the Micra were too short, but the latest edition is no longer puny at 3.99 meters in length meaning it is no longer as short as a VW up!, Opel Karl or Toyota Aygo - but closes in length to the "Big Three" of the four-meter class, the VW Polo, Ford Fiesta and Opel Corsa.

The Micra's handling has been improved, but the tired engines are unfortunately still on board. What the Nissan Micra has to offer in terms of space, trunk, engines, safety and equipment and what not, whether it is purely a city car or is also suitable for long-distance journeys and maybe even used as a family car or better just as a second car, all This becomes apparent when you examine your good qualities and weaknesses more closely and in more detail.

Motor oil is a vital part of your Nissan Micra's engine. It provides the much needed lubrication to many of the internal parts of an engine. One of its key job is to prevent wear and tear on the moving parts and helps keep the engine running smoothly. Without oil, the engine would cease up almost immediately.

Regularly checking and changing your Nissan Micra engine oil is really important. Every time you start and run your car, very fine by-products from the combustion in the engine will be collected in the engine oil. This is one of the reasons why over time the oil goes black. If these contaminants build up too much and exceed the capacity of the oil it can have a negative impact on your car’s overall efficiency and actually effect its performance as it creates sludge and increased wear in the engine block.

Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.

So which engine oil should you buy for your Nissan Micra? Whether you are topping up your Nissan Micra oil or doing a full change of your Nissan Micra's oil it is really important that you use the correct grade of oil.

We have listed all the Nissan Micra models and engine types in the following table, as well as the correct engine oil grade for each of the cars. You can use the search and filter to easily find the right engine oil for your Nissan Micra.
