Hello Gents,

I am back once again for more oil wisdom. Unfortunately, I do not have an owners manual for the wife’s 06 Nissan Altima. I do know the car requires 5W-30. Any of you wizards can shine some light on which direction to go in the oil aisle? Does Nissan require a specific spec to look for in the oil bottles?

2006 Nissan Altima 2.5s
150k miles
OCI ~ 5k
Daily commuter, Chicago Il,
30 miles daily.

Thanks guys!!!

Any decent 5w30. Personally, with miles I would use Valvoline MaxLife. If you wanna spend a little more, any full Synthetic High Milage will be fine.
Nice car, by the way. Are all the other fluids serviced?

All other fluids have been serviced. Car has been problem free since we bought it brand new, not one hiccup :-) hope it stays that way!

They are good vehicles. With proper maintenance I think you will have a nice ride!

My 08 Altima two door coupe has 210k miles on it. And has been very good as well.

My son commutes to La Guardia from Delaware. He's a Delta pilot and in the Air Force Reserve. He's driving a 2006 Altima with the 2.5. Over 100k now. He uses nothing but Mobil 1 5w30. He has taken good care of this care, he's a maintenance freak like me. He needs reliable transportation, especially with his schedule and the distance he has to drive. He has no complaints thus far.
