Recommended Oil Weight
« on: July 31, 2009, 11:55:36 PM »
Back in PA I used to run 5W 30 synth in the Xterra.  With the higher temps here in AZ what weight do you guys run in your X?  I'll be doing oil changes on both of my cars soon and both used 5W 30.  Thanks.

I just did a change w/ Castrol Edge ful synth.. Cheaper than Amsoil, supposedly 8x better protection than Mobil 1, and I've always had good luck w/ Castrol. They recommend the 15k mile changes too.. I'm checking mine at 6-7k..

I run Amsoil 5W-30 in the Gen1 since we moved to AZ 4.5 years ago. No problems and I change it every 10k miles.

We run Dino stuff in the Gen 2 5W-30 until the mileage gets up there.

I've ran Mobil 1 5W-30 in the 2nd Gen since Day 1 and religiously change the oil at 5k miles.  My Tranny, Diffs & Transfer Case all run Amsoil and changing gear in the Manual Trans after the Amsoil switch is so much nicer than with the OEM fluid.

I ended up sticking with a 5W 30 synthetic.  PepBoys has Castrol Edge on sale 5 qts. plus a Fram oil filter for $29.99 or the standard Syntec for $24.99.

I bought the Jug (Castrol Edge)for a little more than that.. It's like a free filter, although consensus is FRAM filters are crap. Good deal

Depends on which one you get Dan.  The tough guard ones are suppose to be good.  I buy Wix for my vehicles.

I agree that Fram filters suck.  Fortunately they were out of the model # for the 1st gen Xterra so I got a Purolator filter instead at the same price.

I just purchased the 10 pack of OEM Nissan filters about a year after getting the X from xterraparts.  Shipped to my door with some wiper blades and other bits & pieces.

how much was the 10 pack of filters Rog?
I did buy the tough guard, and WIX is what I'd primarily used in the past.. good stuff  :)
No probs w/ using the Castrol edge either, smooth as can be..

Can't remember cost, only like $45 or somethin tho I think - check the Xterraparts.com site.  Was quite a few years ago, I probably wont buy 10 now tho, not really planning on owning the old girl for another 50k miles / 4 years, which it would take me to use up 10 of em before I sell it.
