How Often to Change 2001 Infiniti I30 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2001 Infiniti I30? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about 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 2001 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. Outside of Infiniti-recommended oil change intervals, your I30 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of 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 drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Infiniti I30. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2001 Infiniti I30?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2001 Infiniti I30 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Infiniti has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2001 I30. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your I30’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your I30 by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2001 Infiniti I30

  • Should I check my Infiniti I30 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Infiniti I30 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Infiniti I30 oil at home? 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. 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? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
