Oil life system

Most Nissan vehicles are equipped with an electronic computer system linked to the dashboard that tells drivers when something in the engine needs to be looked at. Whether the dashboard lights trigger to tell a driver the oil needs to be changed, or the tires need to be rotated, the driver must respond to the issue as soon as possible and resolve it. If the driver neglects a service light, such as the "MAINTENANCE REQUIRED" light, he or she runs the risk of damaging the engine or worse, ending up stranded on the side of the road or causing an accident. The sole function of Nissan's maintenance reminder system is to remind the driver to take their car in for an oil change, an oil filter change, or a tire rotation. The computer system tracks the engine miles from the time it was reset, and the light will trigger after a certain amount of miles add up

The Oil Life Monitor does not check oil levels. If your Nissan develops a leak or is burning oil you engine can become damaged. Checking your oil levels weekly can find the problem. You can monitor this with the dipstick. The best time to check is when the engine is cold and sitting on a level surface.
