Oil Changes at Modern Nissan of Hickory


An oil change can be the most basic, but one of the most important services your Nissan requires as the oil and the filter that keeps it clean are essential to the longevity of your Nissan. When an oil change occurs here at Modern Nissan of Hickory, our technicians drain all of the old oil sludge out of your engine, replace the oil filter, and refill the engine with fresh oil in accordance with its correct viscosity. Older Nissan models may require an oil change once every 3,000 miles or so, but modern synthetic oil blends can go for longer periods of time before their shelf life expires at about 7,000 miles. Your Nissan owner's manual will have the most accurate assessment of when routine oil changes are required, but when the time comes, you can bring your Nissan in to Modern Nissan of Hickory, located less than 20 minutes outside of Newton and proudly serving Statesville.

The oil in your Nissan's engine may run out sooner than a change is required, especially if you frequently commute to and from Lincolnton or take on heavier towing projects in Lake Norman which can drain oil quicker. A good way of checking oil levels is to park your car on a flat surface, pop the hood, and pull out the dipstick, which is marked with a colorful ring. Wipe off the end of the dipstick, wipe it off with a rag, then place it back in and remove it once more to determine the proper oil level of your engine. Your owner's manual will tell you precisely which viscosity of oil ton purchase from the store and you should use a funnel for the most accurate pouring.

A routine oil change, and oil filter replacement, are both essential to your engine and its longevity for a variety of reasons:

  • Oil filters help keep toxins and other additives out of your engine
  • Oil acts as lubricating agent for pistons, cylinders, and other components of engine- preventing sparking and other damage from friction
  • Expired oil sludge can cause serious damage to your vehicle
  • Oil changes also flush out your engine of damaging debris which is left behind from oil
  • Your engine oil acts as a coolant for your engine, keeping its temperature stable
