Where is the oil filter on a 2003 Nissan Sentra?
on the passenger side bottom of engine facing the tire
check the owners manual under maintence and service, all of the sentra engines are listed with the oil capacity the engine number will have a 18 in it, that is your engine. i believe it needs 4 to 4 1/2 quarts. Answer I have a 2002 Nissan Sentra with a 1.8L. In the owner's manual, it states the engine takes 2 7/8 quarts with a filter change. it is correct
The same way you change the oil in any car. Drain the oil from the oil pan by removing the oil drain plug, remove the filter, apple oil to the new filter gasket, and install the new filter. Replace the oil pan drain plug, then pour in the correct amount of the correct weight oil. Recycle to old used oil and filter.
You use 5w-30 for the SER spec-v and you should use FULL SYNTHETIC. I perfer valvoline cause they garentee your car will run to 300,000 miles with it. Today i changed my oil with a special from autozone. I got 5 gallon jug and a filter for 26 dollars. But remember only put in 4.5 liters with a new filter.
It depends on how you take care if it. How often you change the oil and filter. What type of oil and filter you use. when you change the air filter gas filter and how you drive. If you drive in the city or open road. Light foot or heavy foot. So as you can see, it depends on you. Do everything right and you should get 300,000 miles out of it, or more.
