The 2009
Nissan Murano’s
oil type is 5W-30 synthetic motor oil.
If you’re planning on changing the oil on your Nissan Murano yourself, it’s important to know that the Murano’s oil capacity is 4.9 quarts or 4.63 liters.
Make sure that you always put the correct oil type in your car. Using the wrong type of oil can lead to serious engine issues, like reduced performance, reduced fuel efficiency, and even complete engine breakdown.
Here are some signs that you may have put the wrong type of oil in your engine:
  • Your car has trouble starting in cold weather
  • You notice that you have to fill your car’s gas tank more frequently
  • You smell burning oil when you are driving
  • You hear a ticking sound coming from your engine in cold weather
  • Your car is leaking oil
If you notice any of the signs above, contact your mechanic. You’ll need to have the old oil flushed out of your car’s system, have your oil filter changed, and have the correct oil type put in.
Regular car maintenance is important for the health of your car’s engine and will go a long way to keeping your overall cost of car ownership down. Consult your owner’s manual to find out what fluids your car needs and how often they should be changed.
