How Often to Get 2000 Infiniti I30 Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2000 Infiniti I30? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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.

Your 2000 I30’s oil should be changed according to Infiniti’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. 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, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Infiniti I30. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

In an oil change service, a technician will change your I30's oil, replace and recycle the old 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 easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2000 Infiniti I30

  • What can low oil do to my Infiniti I30 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Infiniti I30 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Infiniti I30 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti I30 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
