2014 Juke 1.6L Turbo I4
Twist Off Oil Filler Cap
Pull Up Oil Dipstick
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016) Nissan Juke in changing the motor oil and replacing the oil filter on the MR16DDT 1.6 liter inline four cylinder turbo-charged engine.

Owner's of other Nissan or Renault vehicles equipped with the MR16DDT engine such as the Tiida, Pulsar, Deltawing, Renaultsport Clio, Renault Samsung SM5 and Nissan X-Trail may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The items needed to complete this procedure include a floor jack, two jack stands, a 14mm socket with a 3/8" drive ratchet or a 14mm wrench, a used oil catch container, a new oil filter, 5 U.S. quarts of new SAE 5W-30 oil and an automotive funnel.

A few compatible replacement oil filters with their part numbers are as follows: Bosch 3300, K&N PS-1008, Mobil 1 M1-108, Royal Purple 10-2876, Fram XG6607, Wix # 51358, Mann-Filter ML 1014, Pennzoil HPZ-37, Purolator PSL14612, ACDelco PF1237, Motorcraft FL816, and Premium Guard PG4612.

The first steps are to warm up the engine for a few minutes, park the vehicle on a level surface and engage the emergency / parking brake.

Warming up the engine will help suspend any contaminants within the old oil and also allow it to drain out more quickly.

Chock both sides of the rear wheels to prevent the car from moving.

Open the hood, twist off the oil filler cap in the counterclockwise direction and pull up the oil dipstick a few inches.

Removing the oil filler cap and pulling up the dipstick will help prevent a vacuum from forming and allow the old oil to drain out more quickly.

Raise the front passenger side of the SUV with the floor jack and securely support it with the two jack stands.

Slide under the engine with a 14mm socket, a ratcheting wrench and a used oil catch container.

Locate the black metal oil pan with the oil drain bolt on the rear edge and the oil filter situated at the front of the pan.

Loosen 14mm Oil Drain Bolt
Used Oil Catch Basin
Tighten Oil Drain Bolt
Loosen the oil drain bolt in the counterclockwise direction with the 14mm socket and 3/8" drive ratcheting wrench.

Try to avoid getting the old oil on your skin since used motor oil may be carcinogenic. I'd recommend wearing rubber gloves.

Allow the old oil to drain out of the pan for at least a few minutes or until the flow slows to an occasional drip.

If the oil drain bolt is equipped with a washer, inspect it and replace it if necessary.

Replace the oil drain bolt and tighten it in the clockwise direction with the 14mm socket and ratcheting wrench to just past hand tight or about 22 to 29 ft-lb (29 to 39 Nm) of torque.

Twist Off Old Oil Filter
Dip Pinky Finger In New Oil
Lubricate Rubber O-Ring


Move the used oil catch container forward to just below the old oil filter.

Spin off the old oil filter in the counterclockwise direction and allow the old oil to drain out for a few minutes.

If you have trouble removing the old oil filter, you may need to use an oil filter wrench such as the Lisle # 63600.

I recommend buying the Mobil 1 M1-108 oil filter since it has excellent reviews on Amazon.

Dip your pinky finger in to some new SAE 5W-30 oil and lubricate the rubber o-ring gasket on the new oil filter.

Lubricating the o-ring on the new oil filter will allow it to form a better seal and make it easier to remove during the next oil change.

Twist On New Oil Filter
Lower Vehicle From Stands
Insert Automotive Funnel
Make sure that the rubber o-ring from the old oil filter is not still attached to the engine.

Spin on the new oil filter in the clockwise direction to about 1/4 to 1/3 turn past hand tight.

Avoid over tightening the new oil filter to prevent from damaging the rubber o-ring gasket or crushing the filter body.

Double check that the oil drain bolt and the new oil filter are tight before moving on to the next steps.

Lower the SUV from the jack stands using the floor jack.

Insert the automotive funnel in to the oil filler hole.

Pour In New 5W-30 Oil
Check Dipstick Oil Level
Replace Oil Filler Cap
The MR16DDT 1.6L turbo-charged I4 engine has a total capacity of 4 3/4 (4.75) U.S. quarts or 4.5L of oil for an oil change with filter replacement.

Slowly pour in only about 4 to 4 1/4 quarts of new oil in to the oil filler hole.

It is far better to have slightly less oil in an engine than necessary than to over fill it. Running an engine that has been overfilled with oil may cause damage to seals, gaskets or other components.

Temporarily replace the oil filler cap in the clockwise direction and push down the dipstick.

Start the engine, allow it to run for a few minutes, turn it off and then let the oil drain back down to the pan for at least 5-10 minutes.

Pull out the oil dipstick, clean it off, re-insert it and pull it out again to check the oil level.

If necessary, slowly pour in more oil and repeatedly check the level on the dipstick until it reaches just at or below the upper hole at the end of the dipstick which indicates the "Full" or "Maximum" line.

You may not need to pour in the entire 4 3/4 U.S. quarts (4.5 liters) of new SAE 5W-30 oil depending on how long you allowed the old oil to drain out.

Make sure that the oil filler cap is tight and push down the dipstick.

Record the oil change in the service records for your vehicle.

Check your driveway, garage or parking spot during the next few days for drops of fresh oil which may indicate a leak from the oil drain bolt or the new oil filter.
