Nissan GTR Servicing

It is vital to keep the drive-train in the R35 Nissan GTR maintained and serviced as it is one of the most advanced produced by any manufacturer. Here at Kaizer Motor we give the best care to the GTR when servicing it, using only the best required tools and diagnostic equipment, whilst maintaining the factory warranty. We also only use genuine Nissan parts and oil that is recommended or exceeds the Manufacturers standards.

Under the EU Block Exemption rules, GTR owners can choose an independent specialist, such as ourselves, as long as they are using Nissan parts and the correct diagnostic equipment without affecting their warranty.

Depending on where you are based depends on when your GTR is due for a servicing. In the UK the GTR is due for a service after every 6,000 miles or after 6 months. The only exception of this is the enhanced 2011 GTR which is due for a service after every 9,000 miles or 12 months.

We also do servicing for those doing track days. We know that you may need extras on your car service, such as additional transmission fluid or a 4 wheel alignment and engine/gearbox optimisation*. Please contact us if you wish to discuss this further.

*Recommended by Nissan, the Nissan GTR requires the following inspections, in addition to regular maintenance. These inspections are required after 1,000 miles, and then annually:

Transmission Clutch Setting

Because of the design of the GTRs clutch and transmission, it requires inspection and adjustment of the clutch and shift forks at the recommended intervals. Depending on the way you drive the GTR will depend on how frequently adjustments need to be made. It is reported that when the vehicle is performing at low speeds, there is poor shift and transmission performance. The alignment procedure will improve this. 

Wheel Alignment

The GTR’s wheel alignment will need measuring and adjusting once the suspension components “break-in”. With the latest Hunter TD Hawk-Eye alignment equipment, we are able to offer a full adjustment. 

Engine settings (balancing of air flow for left and right banks)

Each side of the engine must operate at the same time, at the same performance level due to each cylinder bank on the engine operating independently. This is because of the vehicles twin turbocharger design. Using out diagnostic equipment, we much check and adjust as necessary the power output of each bank. 

When getting your Nissan GTR serviced, there are now multiple choices of oil from Mobil 1,Motul and Pentosin.

Engine Oil

We have a full range of  engine oils from Motul Sport to the  factory fill Mobil 1 engine oils. 

Gearbox Oil

Motul oils are the most cost efficient option as well as being of a very high quality. The Motul DCTF will become the standard fill and are Nissan’s preferred supply for the Nismo range of oils. We have used Motul DCFT for several years and feel it has a high performance, just as good as the Pentosin. As it has been specifically developed for the high powered GTR, we use the Pentosin R fluid, in addition to the regular Pentosin FFL4. 

Differential Oil

We use the same oil type as the original Nissan fill for the 2008-2010 cars, Castrol Syntrax, as our differential fluid. For later models or cars that do not have much use, we use the Motul/Nismo 75w140 differential oil. 

Brake Fluid

For your regular cars we use Motul’s DOT 5.1 brake fluid as our standard replacement fluid. For cars that are used as track cars, we use Motul RBF660 Brake fluid, giving you the crucial pedal feel and consistency. 

Very helpful and knowledgeable. Highly recommend! Recommend anyone taking their GTR's here!
