The NV200 is a compact high-roof station wagon that has been produced by Nissan since 2009. Nissan offer the NV200 as both a seven seater MPV and also as a panel van. In 2011, the New York Taxi Commission selected the NV200 as the standard taxi for New York and since then there have been numerous yellow vans on the road in Manhattan. For the 2020 model year, Nissan had discontinued the NV200 and Evalia versions with petrol and diesel engines and now only have the electric version e-NV200.
How often do you actually need to change the oil on the NV200? That depends on the generation and the engine. A small van from the Nissan M20 series with 1.5 litres of diesel, for example, needs fresh lubricant every 12 months or every 30,000 km.
How many litres of oil the NV200 needs per service and which type of oil is suitable can differ depending on the engine type. The Nissan diesels from the van series, for example, require a good 4.5 litres of the ACEA C4 standard for an oil change. You can find more information on oil quantities, oil types with manufacturer approval and viscosity classes on the Nissan website, from your local dealership or in the owners handbook.

It doesn't matter whether the NV200 is used as a family minibus or as a small van in the shop - nobody wants to afford breakdowns in everyday life. You should therefore make sure that the Nissan always has sufficient engine oil with the optimum viscosity. This protects the engine and burns the fuel more efficiently. This means that the expense for regular oil changes quickly pays for itself.
Motor oil is a vital part of your Nissan NV200's engine. It provides the much needed lubrication to many of the internal parts of an engine. One of its key jobs is to prevent wear and tear on the moving parts which helps keep the engine running smoothly. Without oil, the engine would cease up almost immediately.
Regularly checking and changing your Nissan NV200 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.
