How Often to Change 1998 Infiniti I30 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1998 Infiniti I30? Look no further than 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, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1998 I30’s oil should be changed according to Infiniti’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your I30 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, 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 terrain, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Infiniti I30. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1998 Infiniti I30 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Infiniti I30 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Infiniti I30 engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Infiniti I30 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 I30 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 old cylinder walls.
