I am new to this forum and besides my sisters altima new to Nissan. I recently purchased a 04 Nissan Titan 4x4 Crew Cab Off-Road and have a 97 Jeep Wrangler. I kinda quickly purchased this Titan when I found one i like since used ones in my price range don't come around often or last long around here, especially equiped like this one. So I didn't do the researched that I would have like, but I still love my Titan.

My question is, the service engine soon light came on. Coming on quickly after hitting 42000 miles, I assuming its an automatic thing that happens then. I plan on changing my own oil as i do with the Jeep, so is there a real need for me to have it checked out? Is there something I should be looking out for? Is there a way to get the light to go off besides disconnecting the battery for a few minutes?

Is it best to just the oil and filter that the dealer uses, or just go with something good like Mobile 1 or something. What is most recommended?

First welcome to TT!

Use the search feature, it helps.
Instructions on how to get the code yourself Here

Or, you can get it at Autozone I guess, but if the light is on, it means something. May turn out to be not important, but you don't know until you check.

Oh, search for oil filters too, I think there is someone here with just about every kind out there.
I like K&N Filters, Castrol Sytec Blend myself. Lots out there on Mobil1.

i am gonna go with Amsoil synthetic and filter
but at your milage i think i would check with them first i understand that THAT synth cleans your engine so well the carbon and other crap in it will clogg up the pump (i'm probably not explaining correctly)
good luck

but see if you can clear the code
