If you plan to check the oil pressure, here are the specs:
600 rpm: More than 14.2 psi
2,000 rpm: More than 42.6 psi
6,000 rpm: More than 56.8 psi
Oil capacity: unit: liter (US qt, lmp qt)
With oil filter change 3.5 (3 3/4, 3 1/8)
Without oil filter change 3.2 (3 3/8, 2 7/8)
Most Nissan engines have an oil pan capacity of 4.25 qts and up. Being that your engine was down 1 qt, that gives you 2 3/8 qts in the pan; not very much. Considering how high the oil pickup screen is above the bottom of the pan, you could well lose some oil flow intermittently, especially when hard accelerating; not a good thing. At least now you know to keep it full.
KA-T for life, yo!
