04-07 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

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

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.
