2014 Nissan Rogue engine oil capacity

Before we get started, let’s talk about capacity. This is the amount of oil that your vehicle’s engine requires to run smoothly. 
The 2014 Nissan Rogue oil capacity is 4.9 quarts (4.64 liters).
You won’t need to add this amount of oil every single time you top up the oil reservoir. But you will need 4.9 quarts of motor oil whenever you completely change the oil in your Rogue.

What kind of oil does a 2014 Nissan Rogue need?

There are various grades of motor oil, and they are not interchangeable. Your Nissan Rogue requires 4.9 quarts of full-synthetic SAE 0W-20 motor oil. 
Motor oil ratings help drivers pick the correct engine oil for their engine and environment. SAE stands for Society of Automotive Engineers, which is the group that assigns codes to motor oil. 
The numbers in the oil rating indicate viscosity and the “W” stands for winter. So, the 0W rating means that this oil is very thin at 0°F. 20 indicates that the oil stays relatively thin at 212°F, too. Low viscosity is a good thing—it means less wear and tear on your engine.
Nissan recommends against additives in oil for the Nissan Rogue. Nissan also recommends that drivers use oils that have the American Petroleum Institute (API) certification or the International Lubricant Standardization and Approval Committee (ILSAC) certification. Look for an API certification badge on the oil container in the shop.
You can use Mobil 1’s Advanced Fuel Economy 0W-20 or Extended Performance High Mileage 0W-20 full synthetic motor oil in your 2014 Nissan Rogue. 
If you find another high-quality synthetic motor oil that fits the above requirements, you can use that, too.

How often to change oil on a 2014 Nissan Rogue

You know how much oil and what type of oil you’ll need. But how often do you need to change the oil on a Rogue?
Nissan recommends that you change your oil at an interval between 3,000 and 5,000 miles. If you’re not a driver who tracks their mileage that closely, instead you can aim for bi-annual (every six months) oil changes. 
While you should always adhere to the manufacturer’s recommendations, you may be able to get away with a 7,500 to 10,000-mile service interval with synthetic oil since it lasts a lot longer.
Nissan is careful to point out that the low oil pressure light should not be used as an indicator of low oil. Instead, check your oil regularly. Once per month is enough. Stay alert for additional signs that your oil may need to be changed:
  • Smells like burning, oil, or smoke
  • Unusual noises from the engine area
  • Motor oil appears dark brown or black, gritty or clumpy
  • Reduced performance

How to change your oil and oil filter

You will need a drain pan, a clean rag, a new oil filter, a wrench and five quarts of 0W-20 engine oil to change the oil on a 2014 Nissan Rogue. Nissan also recommends that you install a new washer.
Park on a flat surface in a safe area. Set the parking brake and run the engine for a few minutes. Turn off the vehicle and remove the engine oil filler cap. With the drain pan in place beneath the drain plug, remove the plug with a wrench and allow the old oil to drain out.
If you’re also changing the filter, remove the pins from the right engine protector. Use your oil filter wrench to loosen the old oil filter, and then unscrew it by hand. Wipe the filter sealing surface with a clean rag. Coat the gasket on the new filter with oil. Screw it on until you feel resistance, and then tighten an additional two-thirds of a turn
Then, reinstall the drain plug with a new washer. Fill the reservoir with 4.9 quarts of engine oil. Reattach the filler cap. Run the engine and check for leaks. Complete the process by waiting 10 minutes and checking the oil level with the dipstick. Find step-by-step instructions in the 2014 Nissan Rogue
