I read the owners manual on my 2016 XD and it states 5w-30 is an acceptable alternative to 0w-20 oil...

My 2017 Titan makes no mention of 5w-30 as an alternative.....

They have the same engine and were built 13 months apart....

In my opinion, if you take care of your ride, change the fluids on time and when necessary you'll be fine. I believe the lower viscosity has more to do with modern engines than anything else. I was under the impression that the lower thickness meant that the engine doesn't have to work as hard, but I could be wrong.

So if you want to believe that engines are being ruined by thinner oil because of one article that's your prerogative and I am happy to let you have it. As for me and mine we will have faith in science and make our opinions based on our own experiences.
Reddirtross silly he's talking about the new vehicles that are running on 0-20W not your '02 Acura or a '84 Chevy. I really do think this is our government making us buy, buy, buy. They want us to treat cars like a 3 or 4 year investment and then onto the next one. Heck you can't get a fridge or washing machine to last more than a couple years now, it seems like it anyways. The way to a strong healthy economy is make everybody buy, buy, buy, buy. Well lets see what happens I hope someone gets over 200k plus out of a 2gen Titan. It'd take me 20yrs with the amount of driving I do now. So we'll see how it goes.

Also in the 80's 250hp out of a V-8 was good even great. 4 cylinders made 100hp if you were lucky. Now days we are getting up to 400hp in a truck V-8? 300hp plus out of hot 4 cylinders. There's going to be more failures too when you're pushing engines to these extremes and not to mention the MPG's they are getting now?

I prefer not using remote start or drive-thrus, both hurt your MPG's a lot & you shouldn't let your vehicle idle more that a minute or so especially unattended.
Remember oil isn't a renewable energy source. One day it will all be gone?

Thanks slyfur1. Yes I was talking about 0w-20. I hope my new vehicle lasts longer than my washing machine (definitely gets way more use) but unfortunately it's a disposable society but the more cars you HAVE to buy, the more revenue you create for local and state governments. Anyways, that's for a different thread.
Just really concerned with all these engines having knocking issues when it's not necessary or can be avoided by using heavier weight oil. My 07 ran perfect and I towed a lot and it never let me down!...and as far as maintenance....let's just say I have OCD and it was babied 😎

I said a while back 0w 20 was like pouring water in your engine

Re: No more 0w-20 for this guy

I'm a little concerned also with Nissan recommending 0w20 for this particular engine. Although 0w20 is almost used across the board for most new vehicles these days, cars and trucks included I would've been more comfortable using say a 0w40 such as recommended by Chrysler for the 6.2 engine in the Challenger. In my opinion the Nissan 5.6 engine is in a same class as the high output 6.2 in the Challenger and similar vehicles. I would even prefer the 0w30 although it isn't as available as other weights. 0w40 is a synthetic and usually found available in the stores. The 0 designation doesn't bother me as this oil flows very quickly throughout the engine. It's when the engine reaches operating temp that I would like a more stout temp protection. Just my 2c

Walmart carries 0w-30 Mobil1. When my Challenger was brand new 5w-40 was recommended but before I even was near the first oil change Chrysler changed it to 0w-40.

LMK how long it takes? My last sample took 3wks or so? A little longer than I remember from past samples? I was just getting ready to call them and see if they got it and they sent results.
