Nissan X-Trail Engine Oil Finder

Since Nissan stopped producing the large Pathfinder SUV in the UK and Europe, the slightly smaller X-Trail, introduced in 2001, has been at the top of Nissan's off road and SUV range. Although the X in the name suggests all-wheel drive, the X-Trail is also available as a front-wheel drive only version. Over the years Nissan have launched three generations of the X-Trail. While the first two visually rely on a robust, angular design, the current edition, which has been available since 2014, has a modern and much more sporty appearance. A third row of seats which offers two additional seats is available but these are only suitable for children due to the interior space.

Nissan X-Trail Oil Change Interval

In the Nissan X-Trail, the engine oil should be changed once a year or after a fixed mileage – whichever comes first. Depending on the engine and the year of manufacture, this mileage is still 15,000 or 20,000 km for the first generation and 20,000 or 30,000 km for the two following series

Nissan X-Trail Engine Oil Capacity - How Much Engine Oil Does a Nissan X-Trail Need?

Just as the engines of the Nissan X-Trail differ in their design, they also require different amounts of engine oil. For example, in a Nissan X-Trail 2.0 4×4 with 103 kW, 3.9 litres of engine oil are sufficient for the engine to run well. A Nissan X-Trail 2.0 dCi with 127 kW, on the other hand, needs more than double the amount at 8.4 litres for an oil change. All engines in the series range within these filling quantities.

The Importance Of Nissan X-Trail Motor Oil

The SUV X-Trail has been rolling off the assembly line at Nissan since 2001. However, the following series could not catch up with the popularity and numerous awards of the first generation. By the end of 2019, more than 100,000 off-roaders had been registered in Germany. When it comes to changing the oil, however, it doesn't matter which model it is. Because every diesel and petrol engine needs fresh engine oil at regular intervals, otherwise the engine can be permanently damaged.

Motor oil is a vital part of your Nissan X-Trail'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 X-Trail 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.
