Hi guys, I am planning to have a change oil this coming December.

May I ask what's the best engine oil and spark plug for our Nissan E15 engine?

Other items I need to replace are oil filter and fuel filter, did I forgot something?

Thanks!

I use Valvoline 10w 30 oil. I love the stuff.

As far as plugs go, I only use NGK and NGK wires.
The NGK wire sets are amazing.

Oh, and changing your own oil is super easy. A lot of
people don't realize how easy it is. All you need is
something to catch your old oil, a socket wrench and
a car jack. You can do it in about 10 minutes.
Thanks for the reply guys. May I ask what is the right spark plug gap?

Hi,

I use Mobil 1 on my 99 Max. Its the freaking best motor oil. Its a 5W-30 and I also use a Mobil oil filter. My car has 140,000 miles on it and it runs like a beast!!!
nice to hear that your car still runs like a beast...

the Philippines is a tropical country, so I will i be fine with a 10W-30?

Hi guys,

I went window shopping yesterday and here are the oils available:

Protec Enoc Premium Virgin Based 20W-50
Castrol Magnatec 10W-40
Pertua Apex 15W-50 Semi-synthetic
Mobil Super XHP Plus 15W-40

I was thinking of using either Castrol or Mobil for my 1989 Nissan California-E15.

Yeah go with 10w-30 mobile 1, castrol, valvoline, all good oils. I use a K&N oil filter with Royal purple 10w-30(person before me ran it on synthetic). Synthetic is really expensive so I wouldn't recommend going that route, though my car runs extremely smoothly.

Might want to invest into a cap/rotor for it also.
I did not find any 10w-30 in the stores.

So, is it ok to use Castrol Magnatec 10w-40 or Mobil Super XHP Plus 15w-40 instead?

I communicated with the previous owner of my 1989 Nissan California and he told me he used 15w-50 synthetic Oberon Oil.

This brand is new to me. Has anyone used Oberon?
