Nissan Maxima 2004 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Nissan Maxima 2004 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Premium Unleaded fuel only

    The engine is tuned to run at its peak on Premium Unleaded fuel, which has an octane rating of 95. By using that fuel you will get better performance and better fuel economy, most likely better fuel economy than you would when running on the cheaper Regular unleaded. Nissan approve the use of E10 ethanol blend fuel, so that would be the best alternative fuel if you can't afford Premium.

  • Oily Nissan Maxima

    Nissan specialist Jerry Newman tells us that 20w-50w is regarded as a little heavy for a modern multi-valve engine, and that 10w-40w or 15w-40w is preferable depending on the temperature of the area you live in. Either grade would be suitable for your area, but the 10w-40w would be better if you were driving regularly to the snow where it would be much colder.
