The 2001 altima uses a KA24DE motor which requires 3.5 quarts of a 10W-30 grade of motor oil. As for an oil filter, you can use a Nissan OEM filter; my preference is a Purolator L24457 filter which is an excellent product and is cheaper than an OEM. Stay away from Fram oil filters; pure crap!

The air filter should be changed at least every 15,000 mi. If the filter has a dark grey appearance, it's time for a change.

KA-T for life, yo!
