Hi All just a quick Straw poll to see how much oil ZD30 owners use when doing oil changes, and how often oil filter is changed and what viscosity /brand of oil used.

I want to see if year model makes any differnce.

So please post with this format.

ZD30 Model = ( 2000)
FIlter change(Y or N) = (Y)
Oil type used and viscosity and litre = ( 10/40 Penright +8.5L)
Drained sump oil time ( 4 hours )
Motor Hot or Cold when sump drained (hot)
Change Intervals = (5,000km)
Thanks in advance:D

ZD30 model = 2000
Filter change = Y (Genuine Nissan)
Oil type used and viscosity and litre = (Dello 400 LE 15-40, 8.5L)
Drained sump oil time = (generally try for 3 hours)
Engine hot or cold = hot
Intervals = 5000 km and moving to trial 7500 km after this change, due to much cleaner oil.

Amazing to see how many people use the wrong viscosity oil...............should be 10W40 (or 5W40 if fully synthetic)

On what is your criteria based? because it actually depends on the model!

Based on Nissan service bulletin some years back, applies to all ZD30 engines.
You may find it on this forum somewhere.
