Select only engine oils that meet the american petroleum institute (api) certification and international lubricant standardization and approval committee (ilsac) certification and sae viscosity standard. These oils have the api certification mark on the front of the container. Oils which do not have the specified quality label should not be used as they could cause engine damage.

Engine coolant mixture ratio

The engine cooling system is filled at the factory with a pre-diluted mixture of 50% genuine nissan long life antifreeze/coolant (blue) and 50% water to provide year-round anti-freeze and coolant protection. The antifreeze solution contains rust and corrosion inhibitors. Additional engine cooling system additives are not necessary.
