No this is not another oil thread. My New Titan had 1500 miles on it today and I couldn't stand to leave the original oil from the factory in it any longer. I dumped the oil, and changed the filter. I used a Mobil 1 filter and 7 quarts of Mobil 1 5w-30. I have read where there was an access hole on the front skid plate. Not. I have also read about the slotted skid plate bolt holes on the rear of the skid plate. This is true but you still have to take all the bolts out to remove the skid plate. No way will it come out otherwise. What I found was that you need two oil drain containers if you want to drain the sump and take the oil filter off at the same time, unless you have a really long oil container. What a PITA. I have always changed the oil on a new motor after 500 miles or so. This time I was unable to due to a BMW was in my shop taking up all the room. Finally got the BMW finished, so in goes the Titan. I've used Mobil 1 in most of my vehicles after breaking in the motor, but never this early. I'm a little nervous. I've been wrenching as a profession all my life, but I've never switched to synthetic oil this early. What the heck ,I guess I will be be the test mule for the forum. What I did find when I was draining my oil was when I put a hole in the top of the original Nissan oil filter to get all the oil out, I watched a bunch of copper colored metallic flakes pour out of it. The oil was fairly clean and I didn't see any of this junk in the large container, but when I put that hole in the filter under my shop light on the work bench, I was a little shocked. I'm glad I changed the oil at 1500 mi instead of waiting for the first free oil change from the dealer. I decided they are not going to touch my truck unless it breaks down and I have to use the warranty. What do you think of going to synthetic oil this early?
