Is there any special type of oil that should be used when you change the oil and filter other than regular in a Nissan Maxima?

First, check the Owner's manual. My guess is that for most areas in the US, the typical recommendation is 10W30 (regular oil, not synthetic). Also, the SAE grading should be equal or higher 2-letter combination from what the manual says. If you have high mileage and no longer under warranty, then it might be worthwhile to get to a slighly higher weight (20W50) to compensate for engine parts wear.
