Probably. A UOA would tell all.*Hypothetically speaking , if the OP used a "standard" synthetic oil and went 5,000 miles / 6 months - if he used M1 EP or Castrol EDGE EP synthetic oil could he go 7,500 miles / 12 months easy enough ?
You may wish to choose an oil that has the newer ILSAC GF-6A rating, one of the enhancements of GF-6A is decreased timing chain wear.VQ engines have long timing chains and picky with oil. Stick to 5k or less no matter what service it is.I never owned but Nissans in the last 15 years.
That is good to know. I have a Nissan Versa Note. Timing Chain in the 1.6 liter engine. I change the oil on a severe service interval because we drive it that way. I am not choosey about the oil but I keep it changed often. That is one tiny engine and doesn't take a lot of oil so I don't know if 3.25 quarts needs to stay in there longer than I have it in there. It gets beat up pretty fast. Speaking of oil changes for that car today it is due to come out.You may wish to choose an oil that has the newer ILSAC GF-6A rating, one of the enhancements of GF-6A is decreased timing chain wear.
