Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1996 J30’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 J30 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 car, 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, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Infiniti J30. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1996 Infiniti J30 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Infiniti J30? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Infiniti J30 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Infiniti J30 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti J30 exhaust smoke grayish 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
