Check your owners handbook as it depends on what part of the world you are in.

You should update your signature to show what QQ model you have/ year/ location. If in warranty don't deviate from handbook.
As above, you must only use a LOW ASH, which is offered by several others apart from Nissan branded (ELF),
Shell, Millers , Castrol.
