After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Infiniti recommends having your 2004 Infiniti FX35’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your FX35 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Infiniti recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Infiniti FX35. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your FX35 by considering your driving style, weather and road conditions,

2004 Infiniti FX35 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Infiniti FX35 motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Infiniti FX35 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Infiniti oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
