How Often to Get 2003 Infiniti FX45 Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Infiniti FX45’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 2003 FX45’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your FX45 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Infiniti recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Infiniti FX45. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2003 Infiniti FX45?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2003 Infiniti FX45 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Infiniti has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2003 FX45. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your FX45's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your FX45 by taking into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Types of Motor Oil for Infinitis

Wondering if we carry the right motor oil for your Infiniti? We carry the best because your FX45 deserves the best. Check your owner's manual and talk with a technician to select the right Infiniti FX45 oil, whether it's Quaker State® Advanced Durability™ conventional oil, Pennzoil® High Mileage Vehicle® motor oil, Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus™ Technology, or Shell Rotella® heavy-duty engine oil. There's a reason we carry these motor oil brands. They are champions.

It's specifically designed for diesel and gasoline engines that need to withstand rugged conditions, and is fortified to deliver increased wear protection, heightened performance in extreme temperatures, and improved oxidation resistance.

2003 Infiniti FX45 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Infiniti FX45 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your FX45’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Infiniti FX45 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
