Wait for the 5k to be reached first, it was only January! You could use some engine flush before the oil change as its a fairly new engine, older engines tend to display leaks if used on them.


DO NOT use slick 50 or anything like that in the new oil. Its a bad idea.

Use redex in the petrol tank. You probably wont feel that it has done anything but it does work.

I don't want to worry you but I have recently bought a secondhand car (2001) from a large Nissan dealer.

"Just had a full service,Sir"
Service record stamped both for this service and last years.

I checked the air filter and plugs and both had not been changed.
I am concerned that the oil and filter may also have been missed as there is no sign of the drain plug having been recently disturbed.
I have not, as yet, looked at the brakes, although as the vehicle is of fairly low mileage, I don't expect any horrors.
I am due to return to the dealer to sort out other matters and will point out these findings for his comment then.

It seems to me that a dealer stamp is no guarantee that the work has actually been carried out!

I bought a Primera 2.0LX from a dealer (jtc600) with full service history, they used a mineral 15w-40 oil.
Just out of the 6 months warranty the engine oil paths to the top end became blocked.
I now always immediately change all fluids/filters after purchase.
