when got the x they gave me coupons for free oil changes or was that 50% off well dont remember but i do remember the manual suggests every 3 months or 3,000 miles...juntao said:i'm reaching 3,000 miles soon..... is that the recommended schedule? maybe i can wait another 1000 miles? i used to go every 5,000 on my old honda, but that probably wouldn't cut it here
Cabin filter needs to be replaced at around 10,000 - 15,000 miles (i think)juntao said:thanks guys. i'm taking it over there in 30 minutes. i was not aware to change after the first 1500....the service guy mentioned the same thing.
he also mentioned $75 to replace the cabin filter :angryfire: whatever, i can do that myself
Yea a filter will last 7k or so on a good engine. Ive cut filters open before just to see what was inside. Also, which filters is everyone running? Having worked at a parts store before, I have seen people purchase many different brands. But i did notice Bosch filters causing problems on customer vehicles. There is a spring inside the filter used to control oil pressure. I dont know why they do this but its there. People brought filters back saying that the spring went out and caused the oil pressure to drop. So i dont recommend Bosch anything!! except for their ICON wiper blades cuz they are the best thing i purchased for my X. I personally run OEM oil filter, and nissan filters are all the same size :cheers:silverflash said:....since i chenge so often and does a normal filter last beyond 3750 miles anyways?
I agree. Waste of money to skip the specified Nissan schedule.silverflash said:wow! 1500 miles??
regarding little metal chips floatin around, there is an oil filter installed AND isn't there a magnetic drain plug or no? Some cars even have magnetic pain, oh wait, that's for trannys.... ANyhow... do what you want, whatever makes you feel good in my book. I personally, am sticking with 3750 miles using dino oil for a while and haven't decided if switching over to synthetic is benefitial or not....since i chenge so often and does a normal filter last beyond 3750 miles anyways?
