04-10 ENGINE OIL CAPACITY FOR ALL TITANS
#1
04-10 ENGINE OIL CAPACITY FOR ALL TITANS



The 05 owner service manual that came with my Titan lists the engine oil fluid capacity at:

6.50 (U.S. Measure) quarts with OEM oil filter change.

NOTE: This puts the oil ~ 1/2 - 5/8 between the lower and upper marks on the dipstick not at the top = "NORMAL" <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/004.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt005' />

6.25 (U.S. Measure) quarts without OEM filter change.

The specifications call for the replacement oil to have a rating of:

API Certification Mark *2*3

API grade SL

Energy Conserving *2*3

ILSAC grade GF-III *2*3

NOTE: *2*3 information in Titan manual.



The NISSAN SERVICE AND MAINTENANCE GUIDE that came with my Titan lists the following MAINTENANCE SERVICE SCHEDULE dates for changing the engine oil and filter:

PREMIUM MAINTENANCE: 3,750 miles or 3 Months

Shcedule 1 Maintenance: 3,750 miles or 3 Months

Schedule 2 Maintenance: 7,500 miles or 6 Months



Note: Use a 14 mm socket to remove the oil drain plug and inspect the copper crush washer for replacement..Item #11026-01M02 price: 75¢

NISSAN OIL FILTER #15208 (Rated 7,500 mile max. or six months) Price: $5.95

AMSOIL OIL FILTER #EA013 (Rated 25,000 mile max. or one year) ..Retail: $17.30 Preferred Customer: $13.15

NOTE: When installing new engine oil filter hand-tighten only.

I use the AmPro T70405 2-step oil filter cup wrench to remove the oil filter ($5.39 @ Advance Auto):



       



1-9-06 Engine Oil and Filter Removal and Replacement Data:

Miles logged at todays oil change on Titan: 12,377

Miles logged at last oil change: 8,425

Miles logged on last batch of oil: 3,952

Brand of engine oil used on last oil change: Mobil1 5-30W "SuperSyn" Synthetic

Brand of oil filter used on last oil change: NISSAN OEM #15208 9E000

Amount of engine oil removed/recovered at todays oil change: 6 qts. 4 ounzes.

Number of oil changes excluding today's oil change: 3



Oil Sample taken for used oil change sent to:

Oil Analyzers, Inc.

2206 Winter Street

Superior, Wisc., 54880

Tel. 715-395-0222 Fax. 715-395-0222

Sent by UPS on 1-10-06.

Cost: $22.50 with pre-paid shipping.



Brand of oil used on todays replacement change: Amsoil Series 2000 0-30W

Brand of oil filter on todays replacement change: Amsoil Ea013

Amount of oil added to engine at todays oil and filter replacment: 6.5 quarts.

6 quart mark on dipstick after engine crank and 3 minute run follwed by 30 minute cool down: ~ 1/8" above the lower mark.

6.5 quart mark on dip stick: ~5/8 distance between upper and lower marks.

6.5 quart mark on dipstick after engine crank and 3 minute run followed by 30 minute cool down: ~5/8 distance between upper and lower marks.



Comments on new oil:

1- First engine start-up @ 50°F ambient temperature results in oil pressure indicator slightly below 3/4 mark and settles to one needle mark above normal setting quickly. Previous 5-30W oil would spike oil pressure indicator to H at same start-up temperature.

2-At 58 MPH my Titan seems to have dropped 50-100 RPM's verses all other oils I've tried in the 04 and 05 Titan.



Tip on oil filling: Stand new empty oil bottles used upside down with cap on and in sun for 30-60 minutes.

One cap full of oil will remain in cap and can be added to engine for complete transfer.



Tip on oil recycling: I brought my used engine and front/rear differential oil to a local speed oil change shop.

They gladly accepted it for free as they have a heating system in the building that filters and burns the used oil in an efficient heating system.

I'm interested in your data. I too changed my oil and filter today and replaced it with Mobil1 5W30.



The oil drained was Mobil1 as well and I will be sending it in for testing.



I ran mine for right at 6000 miles.

I got the report back yesterday..........I don't have a scanner but it says:

NORMAL

ANALYSIS RECOMMENDATIONS:

NO CORRECTIVE ACTION REQUIRED. OIL IS SUITABLE FOR CONTINUED USE. RESAMPLE AT NEXT REGULAR INTERVAL.


I've got all the numbers on the printout too.

The Mobil1--5-30W had 3,953 miles on it.

So far the Series 2000 0-30W is the best for my Titan. On cold starts the needle doesn't even hit the 3/4 mark and returns to 1 needle above the middle in seconds. Also at 58 MPH my Titan seems to have dropped 50-100 RPM's verses all other oils I've tried in the 04 and 05 Titan.

Hi Deb.!!! <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/006.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt016' /> I'm thinking 1,000 miles more than the Mobil 1...so at about 5K I plan to dump and test it and change the oil filter too.

If all is good then I'll go another batch and thousand miles more and test again........I'm hoping the 0-30W will last 7,500 miles...that would be my max. for keeping oil at this point unless I find longer is ok.

I plan to use the same type oil and filter I have in now if the results/performance don't change.

OIL Analyzers will make a graph to show the changes in the oil so I plan to stay with them for any future testing. <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/001.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt019' />

Thanks for the 'heads-up' on this Tom. I make it a habit of ALWAYS checking lines/hoses when I do my oil/filter change. Can I safely assume you used AMSOIL again?

Tom, I only see 5 quarts of 0W-30 in your picture. Your TITAN should require 6.6 quarts of oil. Did you only use 5 quarts?

What's all this commotion about Amsoil oil?



Is it really any better than any other oil? <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt021' />

So far I haven't found any evidence of any other companies fluids or filters or complete line of products that match the Amsoil line........and my Titan agrees!...... <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt004' />

Nobody touches my girls fluids but me! lol......and besides do you think they would know where to look for all the hose connections, seals and other fluids/issues?.. <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/004.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt021' />

A little tip for all of you guys and dolls changing your oil. Before putting a new filter on (btw, I've been fond of the Purolator brand but not too crazy about the sand coating they have begun to use on the outside of their filters), try filling/priming the filter with @ 1/4 of a quart of the 6.5 quarts you will be using on the oil change. My dad is a retired Matco tool distributor and he has told me that ALL mechanics he's sold tools too, dealership or private garages, recommend doing this. It helps protect against 'dry start-ups'. Just fill a few times until the level of the oil inside the filter is @ 1" below the threads so it doesn't spill out since our filter assemblies are on an angle.

<img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/026.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt009' /> sweet write up tom!! i am sold on amsoil. i havent used mobil 1 or any other synthetic, but i know my t loves amsoil. i sold my dad on amsoil for his ford mustang and he is blown away of the performance and longevity. unfortunately my t only has 500 miles on her and my next service is on the house from dealer so it will be a while before changing to the best stuff on earth!
