It is that time atlast and I finally pushed my Maxima to its longest oil change interval ever.

Vehicle: 2008 Nissan Maxima
Oil: Mobil 1 0W40 with Mobil 1 Extended performance filter
Make up Oil: 2 quarts
Miles on Oil: 11,895 miles (I am rounding it up and saying I used the oil for 12,000 miles since it was short of exactly 115 miles to make it 12,000 miles done with this oil).
Current mileage on vehicle: 240,000 miles

Why did I go so long? Because I had used 2 quarts of makeup oil, so why not push the car to the limit? Also, now that my car has 240,000 miles on odometer, I plan to be changing my oil every 10,000 miles. My car leaks oil so I do see myself using 2 quarts make up oil and so why not run it till 10,000 miles? Plus, it will also depend on my used oil analysis from Blackstone.

This time, when I changed my oil I decided to go back to what Nissan recommends for our car which is 5W30. I used Valvoline High mileage 5W30 with a K&N oil filter. I will stick with this for some time and will also change my QX back to 5W30.

My QX has been sitting for 7 weeks now and I have not even cranked it even for one day. I have been busy racking up miles on my Maxima with a 1,000 miles round trip that I took last weekend that quickly got my Maxima to where it is at now at 240,000 miles on odometer and still going good. I would be glad if I use this Maxima until someday I get 300,000 miles on odometer. I mean, the Maxima is not perfect right now but I have enough confidence in it that I can drive it across country if I wanted to. Plus, it still gets to 125mph easy! It did last weekend.

Good thing I plan to take a road trip with the QX this weekend and hope to take some pictures and videos of it that I hope I can make a video to post. I know I will post some pictures for sure, but may try to work on posting a video. It just takes too much time to edit.

Been a while I have not changed my cabin filter and air filter. Ordered both on ebay. Got the cabin filter and not yet received the air filter. So, went ahead and installed the cabin filter. It was so dirty.

Then it has been a month now that my ac has not been working. I finally got the 3 refrigerant I ordered from ebay. And using the small left over from my a/c pro that I had laying around, I put a bit of the leftover pro and then I used 2 of the cans I bo8ght and 1 is left. Maybe I will use that some time down the road to top off. My ac now blows cold! I feel like I need a jacket in there when I turn on the ac.

After that I did a power steering fluid drain and fill. Just something basic.

Then I do not know if some of you guys know, but there is a bigger filter we can use for our cars with no problem. Let me use fram as my example.

Nissan recommends the XG6607 for our Maximas.

But we can use the bigger XG7317 just fine for our Maximas. I see that the XG7317 is the recommended filter for my Infinit QX80 and also for the Nisaan Armada or all years. But that filter will fit our Maximas and allow us to use a bit more oil and is great for someone trying to go for a long oil change interval. I will use the filter on my next oil change. I also realize that some people on bobistheoilguy have done this to their Altimas and other cars.

245,400: Replaced alternator, pulley idler, ac and alternator belts, battery, rear driver side wheel bearing hub, did coolant flush.

The alternator I bought was defective when they installed it, so my mechanic ordered one from O'Reilly. Now car drives fine.

My 2008 Nissan Maxima turned 250,000 miles yesterday.

I bought this car brand new in 2008. I have been the only owner and have owned it for 11 years. It has been pretty reliable and has had it's fair share of problems, but I have been lucky to always been able to pay to get it fixed.

I have almost sold this car twice, but glad I did not because I really like now seeing how the miles are going up.

The car is not mechanically perfect as of today, but I still trust it and will drive it to Alaska and back, if I had time to take off work like 2 to 3 months.

It is my daily driver and I recently took it last weekend on a 600 miles round trip out of town and performance was flawless. Only drawback was the bald tires. Today, I gave it 4 brand new tires and thank the car for being so reliable and hope for many more reliable miles till death do us part.

Car turned 250,000 miles today. And had to thank the car and treat it well.

Oil change with a mixture of my leftover oils and a larger filter. 2.5 quarts of 10w30 and 2 quarts of 0W20. And I used a 2012 Infiniti QX56 filter, instead of the small 2008 Nissan Maxima filter.

Took a sample of the used oil to send to Blackstone. The oil was run for 10,000 miles. I had to put 2 quarts of make up oil during this run. Make up oil was 1 quart 5w30 Valvoline HM and 1 quart Valvoline 0W20 HM. Let us see what the report from Blackstone says in about 3 to 4 weeks.

Took car immediately to Discount Tire to install my 4 brand new Federal FD2 Formosa tires 255/40/19, that I had ordered more than a week ago off ebay to replace the current bald tires. The bald tires had a thread warranty for 40,000 miles when I got them brand new. The tires gave me 55,000 miles before getting bald. These new tires now are also rated for 40,000 miles. I hope I squeeze atleast 50,000 miles out of them too, which means my Maxima will have 300,000 miles by then. I hope it happens before my Maxima dies for good.

Still looking good! 250,000 miles on odometer. Fresh oil change. 4 new shiny shoes on! I have never had any accidents with this car and nobody has ever hit this my car. Car still looks good and if I just say, it has been a pretty reliable car!

Took the car home and treated it to a CVT transmission fluid change with Castrol CVT fluid that I had bought about 3 months ago on a great special at AutoZone. Transmission shifts like butter! 250,000 miles and the CVT acts like it is ready for atleast 100,000 more miles. Let us hope it gives me atleast 50,000 more miles first and get me to 300,000 on odometer!
