2015 Nissan Armada Oil Change
When to Change 2015 Nissan Armada Engine Oil
Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2015 Nissan Armada? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”
Your 2015 Armada’s oil should be changed according to Nissan’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Nissan-recommended oil change intervals, your Armada may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Nissan if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Nissan Armada. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

2015 Nissan Armada Oil Change Q&A
Should I check my Nissan Armada motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Nissan Armada engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
Can I change my Nissan oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
Why is my Nissan exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.

This huge off-road vehicle with the formidable name of Nissan Pathfinder Armada surpasses both Chevrolet Tahoe and Ford Expedition in length.
Actually, the idea of Armada is simple and clear. It is even surprising that it was born only in 2003. This car owes its appearance to the amazing situation in the American market. For decades, Japanese manufacturers have consistently squeezed the representatives of the “Big Three” in almost all segments.
Toyota Camry and Honda Accord topped the sales ratings among passenger cars, the specially created Lexus and Infiniti managed to take away a significant part of the buyers from Lincoln and Cadillac, and even in the class of midsize SUVs, Mitsubishi Montero, Nissan Pathfinder and Toyota 4Runner took good positions.
But in the segment of full-size, and simply put, giant SUVs and pickups, American companies continued to feel superior. Only Toyota decided to prepare its models Tundra and Sequoia to compete with Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Tahoe. They have made a good impression, but they have not made a revolution alone.
Therefore, after the triumphant debut of medium-sized Nissan Murano and Infiniti FX, Nissan USA has decided to enter the “super heavyweights” class and in some contrast with Toyota have tried to assert themselves loudly, having presented bright and interesting product.
Pathfinder Armada was officially shown for the first time at the New York Auto Show, and in the fall production began. And in December, its “fellow” pickup truck Titan joined the assembly line of the new Nissan plant in Mississippi. And Titan impressed the American journalists so much that it won several prestigious awards, and became the winner in annual competitions of authoritative automobile editions.

|Engine||Oil capacity (with filter)||Oil type (viscosity)|

|Engine||Oil capacity (with filter)||Oil type (viscosity)|

How Much Oil Does a Nissan Armada take?
The 2021 Nissan Armada with the 5.6L 8-cyl engine (engine code VK56VD) takes 6.9 quarts (with filter) of 0W-20 synthetic oil. A new oil filter and a crush washer are required.
The engine oil viscosity or thickness changes with temperature. Because of this, it is important that the engine oil viscosity be selected based on the temperatures at which the vehicle will be operated before the next oil change. Choosing an oil viscosity other than that recommended could cause serious engine damage.
Your new vehicle is equipped with a high-quality genuine NISSAN oil filter. When replacing, use the genuine oil filter or its equivalent for the reason described in change intervals.
The oil and oil filter change intervals for your engine are based on the use of the specified quality oils and filters. Oil and filter other than the specified quality, or oil and filter change intervals longer than recommended could reduce engine life.
Damage to engines caused by improper maintenance or use of incorrect oil and filter quality and/or viscosity is not covered by the new NISSAN vehicle limited warranties.
Nissan Armada 5.6L V8 Engine Oil Change Guide
How to change the motor oil and replace the filter in a 2004-2015 Nissan Armada with the VK56DE 5.6L V8 engine.
2012 Armada 5.6L V8
Twist Off Oil Filler Cap
Pull Up Oil Level Dipstick
Owners of other Nissan or Infiniti vehicles with the VK56DE 5.6L V8 engine such as the Titan, QX56, Patrol, Pathfinder, NV2500, NV3500, and NV Passenger may also find these DIY oil change instructions to be helpful.
The items needed to complete this procedure include a 10mm socket with a 1/4" drive ratchet, a 14mm socket with a 3/8" drive ratchet, a used oil catch container, an automotive funnel, 7 quarts of new SAE 5W-30 oil, and a new oil filter.
A few compatible new canister style oil filters with their part numbers are as follows: Purolator PL14610, Bosch 3323, Mobil 1 M1-110, Royal Purple 10-2867, K&N HP-1010, Fram PH7317, Wix 51358, Mann ML 1008 and Pennzoil HPZ-37.
Oil Pan & Drain Bolt
Oil Filter Above Skid Plate
Engine Metal Skid Plate
Warming up the engine will help suspend any contaminants within the old oil and allow it to drain out more quickly.
Then pop open the hood, twist off the oil filler cap in the counter clockwise direction and pull up the yellow handled oil level dipstick a few inches.
Removing the oil filler cap and pulling up the dipstick will help prevent a vacuum from forming and allow the old oil to drain out more quickly.
Remove 10mm Bolts
Two Bolts At Rear Edge
2 Screws On Metal Arms
To access the old oil filter, you'll need to remove the black metal under engine skid plate.
The skid plate is held in place by six 10mm bolts.
Remove 10mm Screw
Two Screws On Front Edge
10mm Socket & Extension
10mm Bolt Removed
2nd Front 10mm Bolt
Removed Recessed Bolt
6th & Last Bolt Removed
Front Skid Plate Removed
6 10mm Bolts Removed
Old Canister Oil Filter
Position Used Oil Basin
Remove 14mm Drain Bolt
Remove the drain bolt by turning it counter clockwise with the 14mm socket and ratcheting wrench.
Drain Out Old Oil
Tighten Oil Drain Bolt
Slide Basin Forward
Re-insert the oil drain bolt by hand to prevent if from becoming cross threaded and tighten it to just past hand tight or about 25 ft lbs of torque.
Carefully slide the used oil catch basin forward to just below the old oil filter.
Spin Off Old Oil Filter
Dip Pinky Finger In Oil
Lubricate Oil Filter O-Ring
If you have trouble turning the old oil filter, you may need to use an oil filter wrench.
I recommend buying the Mobil 1 M1-110oil filter since it has excellent reviews on Amazon.
Dip your pinky finger in some new SAE 5W-30 oil and lubricate the rubber o-ring on the new oil filter.
Lubricating the rubber o-ring will help the filter form a better seal and make it easier to remove during the next oil change.
Spin On New Oil Filter
Line Up Metal Skid Plate
Insert 10mm Bolts
Do not over tighten the new oil filter or use the oil filter wrench to tighten it. Over tightening the oil filter may damage the rubber o-ring and lead to an oil leak.
Double check that the oil drain bolt and new oil filter are tight before moving on to the next steps.
Line up the metal skid plate over the bottom of the engine and thread in the 10mm bolts by hand.
Tighten 2 Bolts At Rear
Tighten 2 Front Recessed Bolts
Double check that the skid plate bolts are tight before moving on to the next steps.
Tighten All 6 Bolts
Insert Automotive Funnel
(The engine's oil capacity for an oil change with filter replacement is 5 3/4 imperial quarts or 6.5 liters.)
It is far better to have slightly less oil than necessary in an engine than too much.
You may not need to use the entire 6 and 7/8 quarts of new SAE 5W-30 oil depending on how long you allowed the old oil to drain out.
Pour In New 5W-30 Oil
Replace Oil Filler Cap
Check Dipstick Oil Level
Run the engine for a few minutes, turn it off, and allow it to rest for 5 to 10 minutes so that the oil will drain back down to the oil pan.
Pull out the engine oil level dipstick, wipe it clean, re-insert it and pull it out again to check the oil level.
Slowly add in more oil and repeatedly check the level on the dipstick until it reaches just at or below the upper hole at the tip of the dipstick.
Once the oil level is correct, twist on the oil filler cap and replace the dipstick.
To reset the oil service indicator, press the Trip button to choose the oil service menu item, move the joystick to choose the "Reset" button and press "Enter". The oil service indicator should reset.
Be sure to record the oil change in your Armada's service records. It's also a good idea to watch your driveway or parking spot for drops of oil and check the oil level on the dipstick several times during the next few days.
