    G’day from Downunder.
    I have a Nissan Navara 4×4, better known to you Yanks as a Nissan Frontier. Mine is a 2013 model and runs the YTD25di turbo diesel engine.
    Despite the manual stating engine oil and filter change every 10’000 km I like to do this every 5000 km. The location of the filter on these engines is nuts, it sits toward the back on the drive side, hidden under the brake booster, to reach it is a real bitch!.
    So, I have a question; on this engine the oil filter is mounted upside down, when the sump is drained the filter is drained also….with this in mind what would you think of me changing the engine oil at 5000 km but not the filter?….I’d change the filter and oil again at 10’000 KM.

    Regards,
    Paul

    “Ow ya goin mate”, I think the way you want to do the oil interval should be fine. Nissan recommends 15,000 km
    (9,000k) Oil and filter Your way under that.

    JMHO ….
    Oil and filter are both relatively inexpensive compared to the cost of a replacement engine.
    IMHO ….. change both.
    If the filter location is the issue.
    Might suggest you research ( if available ) a oil filter relocation kit for your specific vehicle.

    I read my post again mate, It didn’t make sense to me? (my bad) What I meant to say was your Idea of changing just the
    oil at 5000km and doing the oil and filter at 10,000km should be fine.
