How Often to Get 2005 Infiniti FX35 Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2005 Infiniti FX35? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 changing your 2005 FX35’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your FX35 in the above table. Outside of Infiniti-recommended oil change intervals, your FX35 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Infiniti recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Infiniti FX35 Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2005 Infiniti FX35 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Infiniti has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2005 FX35. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your FX35’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your FX35 by taking into account your driving preferences, and mileage.

2005 Infiniti FX35 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Infiniti FX35? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Infiniti FX35 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Infiniti FX35 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti FX35 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
