When to Change 1999 Infiniti G20 Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1999 Infiniti G20? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 having your 1999 Infiniti G20’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Infiniti-recommended oil change intervals, your G20 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Infiniti if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Infiniti G20. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1999 Infiniti G20 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Infiniti G20? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Infiniti G20 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Infiniti G20 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti G20 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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.
