2014 Nissan Versa, driven regularly but over short distances. Until last year, it had been driven for less than 3,000 miles over 5 years. For some reason, it was driven a lot in the past 6 months. I am guessing that it was lend out.

A few of the numbers appears to be out of range. Blackstone do not seemed concern, but I am trying to get a second opinion. What could cause a larger value for copper and Moly? There was also appear to be fuel in the oil, but that is normal if the car is driven on low miles?

My plan is to get analysis on the next couple of oil change and see if the number trend down.

Molybdenum is commonly used in some motor oils. I would not worry about it. Havoline for example uses 193 ppm. You do not what oil is in the car. Copper is a common wear metal during engine breakin.

Molybendum aka "moly" in your oil is a GOOD thing. I'm guessing your Versa isn't even broken in yet. The engine is still shedding new wear metals.

Thank you for your response. Interesting, a 6 year old car that hasn't broken in. Usually, how many more miles before a car is broken in and the metal numbers drop?

Pretty good overall I'd say for a car still not at 10,000 miles. What did you replace the 5w30 with? And what filter? What does your oil fill cap say on the engine? I'm surprised by the 5w30. I would have guessed 5w20 or 0w20 as the oil spec for that little engine unless it's a turbo model then the 5w30 makes complete sense.

Looks good if new. Know nothing about Nissan but in my HyunKias I like 5w30 rather than 5w20.

Sadly, I have no idea what the oil or filter it was replace with except that it was with the same conventional 5w30 and whatever filter the local mechanic used. If it looks good, will check again in 6 months and if that is OK, may be extended it longer to see if there would be issues.

I've never had an oil analysis done on any car I've owned over the 43 years I've owned and operated cars but usually stick pretty close to manufacturer recommendations on the interval. I also still use 10w40 in all my cars. I ran an '88 Ford Escort 518K miles on various brands of 10w40 when the manufacturer recommended weight was 5w30. I just bought a '16 Versa about a year ago. When I bought it it had 10,546 miles. It currently has 20,1XX miles. I changed the oil shortly after buying it because I didn't have any idea when/if it had been done previously. When the oil was changed again at around 16K miles it had been in service for about 5,300 miles and the oil was a dark honey color on my fingers when it was drained. I thought to myself then that I thought the oil would be fine for 7,000-7,500. I'm running Citgo Supergard 10w40 that has been in my garage for probably close to 20 years in the Versa. I remember back in the day people spoke highly of the Citgo Supergard. Seeing Blackstone's recommendation on your Versa I may increase my OCI to 6,000 miles and see how the oil looks and feels. Nearly all my trips are long enough to heat the oil enough to burn off any moisture and most of my driving is very easy driving. My normal driving habits for the roads I drive are speeds in the 45-55 MPH range over 90% of the time
