When to Change 2005 Infiniti FX45 Engine Oil

Infiniti recommends having your 2005 Infiniti FX45’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Infiniti-recommended oil change intervals, your FX45 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Infiniti if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

2005 Infiniti FX45 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Infiniti FX45? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Infiniti FX45 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti FX45 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
