How to Choose the Oil and Fluids on a Nissan Maxima

13

The Nissan Maxima was introduced in 1980, drawn from an upscale version of the Bluebird. These upper mid-size executive/sports cars enjoy ample power and rank mid to high in their category according to expert reviews. These steps apply to all model years of the Nissan Maxima, although owners of vintage vehicles may have special maintenance requirements.

Choose the Oil and Fluids

Use Nissan A/C System Oil Type S or an exact equivalent as your air conditioning system lubricant. Using other refrigerant oils may cause serious damage in your air conditioning system and require its complete replacement.

Maintain your manual transmission with API GL-4 gear oil, SAE 80W-90 viscosity only. This viscosity is suitable for operation in all but the most extreme temperatures.
