Hello! As long as the oil pressure does not drop below 10-15 lbs at idle and iccreases with rpm/s I would not worry...Change to a higher range viscosity oil; 10W30 in the summer and 10W40 in the winter and you should not have a problem...Guru...saailer

How many n what kind of oil i need to use for a nissan quest 1999


If it has the 4 cylinder in it 5W20 and if you have the 6 cylinder it could be either 5W20 or 10w30. I usually use 5W20 in cold months and 10W30 in hot months. As far as capacity goes, as a general rule if you change the oil but not the filter, not something I recommend, then you start with 4 quarts and adjust from there (Basically by 5 quarts). If you change the oil and filter then start with 4 and a half quarts and check the level and adjust as needed. You could use up to 5 quarts maybe a little more. Make sure you check the level before starting then start the vehicle for 5 minutes shut it down then check the level again after 5 minutes. Make sure the level is between the marks.

Should be using 10w30 or 10w40. You probably have a lifter knocking. Instead of using 5 quarts of oil replace one of the quarts with an oil additive. I use a quart of Lucas Oil in my vehicles every oil change. The stuff works wonders!

Should I use 10w30 or 10w40 oil


If you live in cold climate I would recommend 10w30 for winter use, it's a bit thinner and will start better. However if the truck is used hard, such as for towing loads I would use the 10w40. If you live in a warm climate I would use 10w40 all the time.

How do you drain the oil if you put the wrong oil in?


First off, When you say the wrong oil in, do you mean a quart of the wrong weight of oil such as 5w30 and the vehicle calls for 10W30? or do you mean you used synthetic oil mixed in conventional oil. If you added one can or less of the wrong weight oil, then I probably wouldn't worry about it until your next oil change. If you added synthetic oil into conventional oil then do the following.

You need to get under the car and look for the oil pan which should be directly below your motor. Put a large container that would hold at least 8 quarts of oil under the oil pan and use a wrench and remove the drain plug allowing all of the oil to drain into the pan. Once all drained, you might as well change the oil filter and add fresh oil to your vehicle. If you have never done it before, it is fairly simple in the regal but buy the oil filter so you know what your looking for. I believe the filter is on the front of your motor. Make sure you put a ring of oil on the seal of the new filter before installing and then spin it clockwise to put it on. Lastly re-insert the drain plug and fill the motor with 4 quarts of oil(expecting to add total of 5 quarts). Start the car for about 30 seconds and shut it off and check the oil level. if low add the 5th quart. Check under the car for any oil leaks. Not a hard fix. Good luck.
